5 out of 5
I started cigar smoking at a rum bar in Phoenix and I knew nothing about cigars. I picked this cigar for the dark oily wrapper and then they matched a 12 year old El Dorado Rum with it. I was in heaven! I had no idea how good cigars could be, I have had some in the military but never bought any of my own just stuff others gave to me. This cigar was so good and matched with a fantastic rum it became my favorite combo. It is still my favorite cigar, very smooth, I never understood why they said for professional smokers only. I have shared this cigar with people that wanted to try it, people that have had bad experiences with cigars, and people that I traded with, and not one single person had anything bad to say about it. In fact I have my roommate smoking cigars and the only ones he will smoke are these. I won't go into the flavors like everyone else, I am still learning that part, but I can say hands down this is still my favorite and a favorite amongst my friends.
