Xikar Defiance Sale

Ready the picket signs and protest chants!

Fifth generation master blender and Cuban native Jesus Fuego lives and breathes cigars. Finely tuning his craft in the legendary growing region of Pinar del Rio, Cuba, Fuego has been shelling out one hit-maker after another. With the threat of pending legislation against premium cigars looming over the industry for too long, Jesus refused to take it sitting down any longer. In his latest endeavor, Xikar Defiance looks to send a message to the lawmakers that resistance is certainly NOT futile in this fight for freedom!

If the cause wasn't good enough for you, the blend certainly is. A four year aged, beautifully crafted Nicaraguan Criollo wrapper cloaks this gem. Inside, a Nicaraguan shade-grown Corojo binder hugs finely aged Nicaraguan long-fillers. This Nicaraguan puro has already received a 92 rating and #18 Cigar of 2008 honors, boasting a smooth and rich profile ripe with nuances of currant, leather and caramel. A subtle natural sweetness ushers in the final third with a pleasant spice rounding out the finish. Fighting for your right to enjoy a premium cigar has never tasted so good!

Xikar Defiance The Renegade
First one out of the box was disappointing. Two days later, the second one made the purchase worthwhile! The flavor went on until I burned my lips. Smooth wrapper, easy draw. After the first one was going to be giving them away, change of plans. Going into my daily rotation. Will be reordering as needed.

Xikar Defiance the Sentry
Very smooth draw, starts off medium bodied and approaches bold towards the end. Some spiciness adds to the good flavor of this blend.

Xikar Defiance The Renegade.
Nice cigar, very well constructed and good burn and smoke. The cigar always stayed in the medium range strength wise. It has some complexity but was an easy smoke. For the current sale price it is a bargain.

A True Bargain, Love the Taste
I bought a box of these Xikar Defiance robustos. I have been searching for a cigar with a Criollo wrapper for some time, and there's not many brands with this feature. I recall smoking Perdomo 10th Anniversary Criollos, but try and find them... This cigar by Jesus Fuego is similar. A nice medium-bodied cigar with a toasty caramel tobacco flavor and outstanding aroma Honestly, I can't understand how these ended up in the clearance bin. I will be buying more, if they don't sell out.

Xikar Defiance
For the price these cigars are the best for the money, I smoke these a couple times a week . The aroma with the smooth leathery taste is the perfect match I appreciate about this cigar, I'd recommend these to anyone that hasn't tried them .... Maybe I won't recommend these so that there would be more for me!

Simply one of the best overall cigars and value
There really isn't much more to say than what has already been said by the other reviewers. These cigars are sublime and should be in everyone's humi. These easily rival some of my Cuban favorites like Partagas Serie D no. 4, Monte Cristo no. 2, Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure no. 2 and Ramon Allones Specially Selected. Seriously, these are such an unbelievable deal for the quality, construction, burn, smoke volume and flavour you'd be missing out if you pass up on these. They have definitely made me a Xikar fan. I'm just hoping they're will be some left over for me when I need to order more.
Customer Testimonials
My first feedback after ordering/smoking many cigars for years- felt compelled to write this to share with others. I think this is an excellent cigar, one of the best values out there, with quality of cigars costing 2-3 time more. Nice burn, charismatic flavors, smoked them till my fingers burned. I shared with other regular cigar smokers that agreed. Ordering another box. Get them before the price goes up.
I never write reviews, but these are incredible smokes the construction and draw are a thing of beauty. They are slow burning; a Robusto lasts four 2 hours. The taste is sweet with a hint of spice and pepper. With a price point like this, you would have to be insane to pass on these. My humi will be stocked with these as long as they are available.
After shampooing my carpet I decided to take a break and sit down with a cigar in tow. I have to say the Defiance is a great tasting cigar. It is on point with the spices to create a nice aroma. I believe I under estimated this one. Now, I cant get enough of it. My hat's off to this tasty cigar. I like it a lot.
