“A decent smoke that had some construction issues due to the wrapper being over baked. The wrapper cracked several times and just didn't hold up too well. The cigar had a good flavor but I expected more sweetness out of the costa rican maduro. A decent smoke for the $4 price tag.”
“Amazing! Tastes like a mix between Liga Privada No.9 and the T52. But the wrapper cracked in a bunch of places and the cap cracked off when I cut the cigar.”
“An impressive looking cigar, although these very dark shades always look obszene to me. A good smoking experience. Bold sweetness of molasses and choclate, accompanied by meaty tastes and pepper.
Reminds me a lot of Mata Fina wrapped cigars. Although I enjoy this style, I can only smoke this style once or twice a year for a change and would prefer something more refined, less sweet every other day.”
“Good small cigar that packs a punch!”
“Great solid, little corona. dark & oily...I wanted to take a bite out of it!”
“Great tasting cigar. Easy, pleasant smoke with even burn and great balance. This one is a winner!! Recommended by sales staff. Those guys really know what they're talking about!”
“initially i thought the draw was going to be making my inner cheeks touch, but it happened to be the opposite. Pretty perfect draw allowing for flavorful milky clouds. somewhat mild intially, rolling into complexity 1/3 in. burn was flawless, and took its time. I'm also a fan of the gauge. easy on the lips. Also there was definately a slight spice througout. not enough to deter me from puffin down. overall lots of complexiy, slightly heddy and a definate future purchase. Good work.”
“So far the best of the blend lab that Ive tried. Although I concur that the initial flavor does give way to straight tobacco about an inch in. All in all though godd balance and strength”
“This cigar has been in my humidor for ten months so I expect is has mellowed a bit. The wraper is a nice maduro, rough in appearance with some veins. Looks like a rugged cigar. Construction is good as is the draw and burn. Initial flavor was slightly peppery with a good tobacco taste. At the half way point the pepper taste disapeared and the sweet maduro flavod became evident. This is a nice medium body cigar. Overall, an enjoyable smoke priced about right. I will buy more.”
“This cigar was very tasty upon spark up which lasted only for the 1st quarter inch then the flaver dropped off some and put out just a straight tobacco flavor. The cigar smoked well, draw was good but I just thought it was average.”
“Was on back-order but finally received it yesterday, and am smoking it as I write this ... this is truly an excellent cigar, an instant classic! Mellow on the palatte but the flavor profile is robust and clean ... lots of tasty coffee'ish/espresso/toasty notes all throughout the burn. If this cigar remains constant from start to finish, I have no complains. If your a fan of the Graycliff Double Espresso, this is a MUST TRY! I hope this cigar stays, and is produced in a robusto/toro size! A”
“Put it this way, If I didn't have a way to light it- I would eat it .”
“One of my very favourite wrapper tobaccos is the Costa Rican maduro and this wee cigar doesn't change my opinion. I don't often buy cigars of thiss ring size and would very much like to have one of these in a toro size. From the pleasant pre-light aroma to the nub this is a worthwhile cigar.”
“A decent little cigar. The ash was a bit loose but the draw was smooth and the flavor was mostly pleasant. Would try it again and this time maybe with a coffee versus a scotch.”
“Pre-light aroma and taste: Spicy w/ hints of barnyard
First third: Tough draw, but even burn. Spice and mild pepper flavor. Slight hint of coffee. Ash fell off.
Second third: Much the same, not much has changed. Maybe noticing some earth and wood. Sweetness too. Draw is much better.. flawless. Burn is even.
Last third: Cocoa sweet flavor...still some spice. Very appealing. Woodsy too! Draw is awesome, and burn is perfect.
Final thoughts: I really enjoyed this! Will re-order!
“Nice dark leaf, good construction, smells like hay and bittersweet cocoa. the cigar lights up easy and brings barnyard and bittersweet chocolate and black coffee notes. Medium body and medium to full strength. this cigar reminds me of 5 Vegas Serie A. A good cigar, not very complex, the burn was even and needed one touch up. smoked 3 of these.”
“Good quality cigar. Medium flavor with a touch of spice on the palet. I enjoyed the experience! I would purchace this again if more competitive.”
“The ZF-544 was a nice treat. As a fan of coronas, this once delivered as it went well with my coffee today. The flavors were smooth and toasty with a good draw and great burn. High quality for the price. I will be purchasing more in the near future.”
“Exellent Cigar. One of the best cigars I have ever experienced. I will stock my humidor with this one.”
“What a great little cigar. Such intense, concentrated flavor. the smaller ring gague really lets the sweet/spicy/rich flavors of this well cared for wrapper leaf shine through. filler and binders add body and substantial strength to the blend in a way that I really enjoyed.
I'll never undrestand the marked for the freakishly large cigars that are being produced right now. This cigar is more interesting, better tasting, and easier to smoke than any 6X60 beast on the shelf.”
“great little smoke smaller ring 44? dark habano/maduro wrapper slight imperfections in color and small spots,holes ,discolorations.i made a v cut cap tastes great .smoke starts out a little peppery and dry about half way thru the cigar it mellowed out nicely .the last third was delicious i wound up smoking it till it started to burn my fingers 3/8ths " left .It tasted that good i didnt want it to end.I would have scored it higher except for the minor flaws mentioned i believe it cost $4”
“overall a fantastic smoke. great even burn. good depth of flavor, body, and structure”
“average smoke with consistent flavorrs of spice and pepper”
“Got this on a recommendation by the staff and absolutely loved it!”
“great tasting cigar but turned off very quickly by outer leaf cracking while i was smoking it and outer leaf was already damaged on the second one that i purchased.”
“Apearance was an expected dark maduro that was very nicely wrapped with a surprising slight toothiness on close inspection. The draw and light were great with the hints of dark chocolate almost right away. The ash was fine despite a few cracks and held up really well. Notes of nice white cedar on the retrohale. I swear there was a note of slight licorice.”
