“I got the Ave Maria Reconquistas as a gift to my brother for Father's Day. Highly recommended!”
“My NEW favorites have just arrived.........a father's day gift....can't ask for more than this!”
“I was worried that the price would just be for the production value of having the individual coffins inside of the tobacco graveyard and, of course, the intricate oversized Ave Maria label, but I was wrong... This cigar was incredible! Unbelievable smoothness from the start down to the nub, with a sweet tabacco aftertaste that pleasantly lingers long after the last puff.
That said, the Reconquista is by no means easy to tame. I usually smoke fairly quickly, yet this took me an over an hour to conquer. It is a full bodied giant and definately not an everday smoke IMO (obvious by the price point), but any Ave Maria or AJ Fernandez fan owes it to themself to stash a couple of these in their top shelf for that special occasion.
To further put it into perspective, my favorite cigar is Morro Castle, based soley on the fact I "could" smoke those daily, but I recognize Reconquista as a more complex and superior offering.”
“Absolutely phenominal cigar! Everything about this one was perfect. The presentation with the cedar coffin and the beauty of the construction just added to the overall experience. I was pleasantly surprised upon first light to find that it has kind of a sweetness in the finish. Definitely one of the most flavorful and pleasant full bodied cigars I have smoked. I honestly can't find anything wrong with this cigar. Definitely not an everyday cigar but well worth the price for a once in a while or special occasion stick.”
“Just got my box in yesterday, I couldn't leave it shrinkwraped! I had to see those coffins for myself. I intended to age them for a year at least, but, have convinced myself that I can allow myself to smoke one on the next BIG occasion. The other 2 I plan on saving. At the price I feel I will be getting a couple more boxes to leave sealed... I want to say DON'T BUY but that would be over sheer greed for not wanting CI to run out before my next order.”
“I just ordered these cigars and from the time the order started processing, my legs started to tap the floor with the excitment of getting them to my front door. Being in Afghanistan on my 3rd deployment, I am sure these will be the highlight of this trip. Just the presentation of the box and the description I have read on them makes it so much sweeter. In one week when they arrive I will plan my two hours of quiet time in a nice spot to enjoy life as good as it gets.
“This was a very nice cigar! Smooth and tastey to the end.”
