“A lovely spring morning,the first tee, being in the the first group playing behind the mowers and greens crew and an El Rey del Mundo Oscuro..What a combination!! Hands down my favorite product that I've purchased from CI...first class taste..medium full in body and smooooth..damn cheap,too...for the product you're getting..Only thing coulda made the morning better woulda been a couple more putts dropping in for birdie..I'm ordering some more today!! Thanks to CI for stocking such variety..
“A very good medium-full smoke (El Rey Del Mundo). No suprises, great flavor through-out the smoke.”
“I found this cigar (El Rey Del Mundo) to be very smooth and a flavorable cigar. I love the detail attention that was given in wrapping it in white tissue paper.”
“I was gifted one of these oscuros, rubusto size. (El Rey del Mundo) Put it in the humi, forgot about it and finally tried it after about 1 year of aging. The first thought after torching it was, "I WILL be acquiring some more of these." Big solid maduro that is well made and has some sweetness with coffee and cocoa overtones. Good cigar!”
“I smoked one of these (El Rey Del Mundo) the other night with a buddy of mine. I felt like a kid on Christmas opening the tissue paper and revealing this dark, oily, gorgeous cigar. It smoked just as well as it looked; hints of coffee, cream, and a very subtle hint of licorice and spice. All I have to say is WOW! We were both very impressed. I'll definitely buy more of these.”
“The tissue-wrapped Robusto Larga (El Rey del Mundo) is a gem! Let it age a bit in your humidor and enjoy one of the best blends out there. You can indeed pick this out in a blind taste test thanks to it's unique nutty flavor. If you are looking for a nice creamy, nutty flavor delivered smoothly with a great burn and draw, this is a must try. I pick these up by the box! At CI prices, why not?”
“Always on my favorites list. The El Rey robusta largas (El Rey Del Mundo) are as reliable in consistency and flavor as the sunrising each day. These are one of the truly great cigars period and are superior in flavor and higher quality than most higher price point cigars. I always have some in my humidor.”
“This is a high grade smoke, no doubt (El Rey del Mundo). I dislike that it is oftimes over priced at retailers. But, you know -- not bad. I usually smoke the double maduro. It streets for like $6 to $8 bucks... the latter a bit on the high side. But the the taste is smooth, this is a med to full bodied smoke though. No light stuff here, spicy... I wish they made a Cameroon, it would be slammin! This is one of my daily sticks... I truly enjoy it.
My rate this stick: 83”
“I had heard great things about the El Rey del Mundos. But, I had no idea they were this good. I bought a five pack of the Robusto Oscuros, and me and my buddies have skipped everything else in the humidor just to smoke these. I will purchase a box soon.”
“The El Rey Del Mundo ~ Robusto Larga Oscuro is the 'best' cigar in this price range, bar none... Light 'em up boys and enjoy...”
“I almost hate to post this just because I am just repeating what everyone else has said. But I just can not help myself. This (el Rey del Mundo Oscuro) is my favorite cigar for any occasion: from just sitting around the house to that special day. I have some really good smokes in my humidors but I look forward to none of them as much as I do the el Rey del Mundos. If you like a smooth, reliable, spicy smoke...you owe it to yourself to try these.”
“I recently retried an old favorite of mine, El Rey del Mundo. For about $6-$7 I picked up a robusto suprema in the sumi wrapper. Boy have I been missing out! The attention to detail, construction, flavor, and draw are on par with the greats, like Hendrik Kelner and Jose Padron. I would say this cigar is like a combination of a Hoyo de Monterrey and a Coronado. Surprisingly, this cigar does what both cigars do well; there is lots of chocolate, nuttiness, earthiness, cinnamon sugar, spice all with a cedary finish. I cant think of a single flaw about this cigar, not even an idea about how it could be improved upon. This is one good smoke, my friends. Frankly, this cigar got robbed by Cigar Aficionado; this cigar should have gotten a '93' easy. This is the very best of the underrated. You owe it to your tastebuds to try one because you will easily find yourself setting aside your pricey Padillas and Don Pepins to make room for El Rey.”
“this is what i love about ci, discovering new brands . these blew my mind. a huge log of a cigar, slightly rustic looking. but well made. the first inch was milder than anticipated. remainded me of a don thomas anniverary a little. then the true nature of this flavor bomb kicks in, earth and spice, wich build per inch untill you realize this is a very full body cigar, loads of sweet coffee flavors . on the churchill size expect 1 and a half hours at least to finish i had to put it down with 2 inches left from the band. i was not happy to put it down. one of the biggest surprises in a while.”
“What to say about the El Rey Del Mundo?? What a great smoke. Became my favorite (Robustos Larga) the minute I tasted it. I've been trying a lot of different sticks lately, and there are some comparables, but nothing can beat it IMO.
My buddy turned me on to these badboys around 6 months ago, and I don't go a week w/o smoking at least 1. It's like the ol' reliable, the one you can always turn to in time of need. heh... :)”
“I received my order from a daily deal today. I couldn't resist trying one and just finished it. Wow! What a Great cigar. Sat out on my porch with a cup of english tea and puffed away until the nub couldn't be held anymore. This one tastes a lot like an excellent Perdomo. Complex flavor with what I have heard described by others as a hint of orange peel taste. I like to sample the smell of my cigars as I puff, and this one was truly wonderful. I am glad I bought this one but wish only that I had purchased more when I did. El Rey Del Mundo Toro Maduro. I will have to get more of these, and recommend these to everyone. Thanks CI.”
“My local shop turned me on to these and I really liked them. While looking around CI, I noticed they were almost half the price. Seriously, how could this be? After double checking 3-4 times and finally being convinced it's the exact same thing I bought a box from CI.
I like to throw my local guy some business, but twice as much? Well done CI.
For me this smoke is a gem. It sits right next to some chisel maduro's, CX2's, and RP Edge right now. Very solid, and a heck of a deal.”
“Hello,gang!I first tried this cigar while out of town on a family trip and unexpectedly ran across a smoke shop in a mall where we were.I saw some(El Rey del Mundos) in robusto larga size and bought a few.Got home a few days later and sparked one up..........Man o'man!This baby is what it's all about.The oscuro wrapper is second to none,the smoke is so aromatic-it has that very heavy rich peppery aroma that makes you stop and take notice(very rare)-taste-pepper,nuts,cream,leather,perfectly balanced.I must say that it smelled and tasted so good that this baby touched me on an emotional level, pardon me getting all sappy,but you can see that the makers of this cigar put a lot of love into this work of art.Thanks C.I. for spoiling us so much,Bravo El Rey del Mundo!!!!”
“Hey gang,I finally got ahold of a box of the ERDM Choix Supreme-WOW!Now I know why they sell out so fast.Pre-light taste and draw-very nice.Spark it up, 1st inch or two-heavy sweet cedar(almost green)-needs some humi-time.After the 1st 3rd is a whole different ball game.Lots of pepper,cream,and leather tastes played back and forth until the last 2 inches where all these flavors came together and magnified, hitting me in the gut at the very end and a little in the head.Only an expert blender can hide that kind of power with so many flavors until the end-Frank Llaneza is a genius.Thanks again C.I.”
“Wow el rey del mundo choix supreme maduro totally enjoyed this cigar. it sells for 5 bucks for the single which i must say better than some of the stogies i have of 10 to 20 dollar range.this is my second cigar in the rey del mundo line. solid construction great flavor and smell.i think there under priced.they are going in my humidor to rest”
“Three words say it all: OUT OF STOCK. This is one of my top 5 favorite premium cigars. It always delivers and blows you away with its taste and spicy aroma. Definitely a cigar that merits a premium cognac or whiskey alongside.”
“Started out smoking El Rey Del Mundos a few years ago and thought they were really good, then I started trying other brands- ones more well know and more expensive. Last month I decided to buy a five-pack and realized they were every bit as good if not better than anything I'd been smoking for the last few years. This is a great cigar.”
“I ordered an 5-pack of the El Rey Del Mundo Robusto Oscuro's based on the feedback i read. I couldn't agree more with the previous reviewers. This is definitely a fantastic cigar and one you should not pass up. CS from Panama City Florida pretty much sums up my thoughts...... what a treat!”
“Absolutely one of the finest cigars I have ever smoked! I go to a local cigar store here in Dallas and the store owner took me to the side and introduced me to this cigar telling me that it's the only cigar he considers as his "Go TO Cigar". Once you try this one you will fall under it's spell just as I did. Since trying this 2 months ago I have gone thru 3 boxes. It is a smooth well wrapped cigar that is easy on the draw and full of complex flavors that will keep you coming back. The pre-draw is so inviting you will hardly want to wait to light this up. ENJOY!”
“The robusto larga is a gem. These tissue wrapped beauties are booming with tons of creamy, chocolatey goodness! Reasonably priced and boxed in plain boxes that you can store other goodies in...you can't go wrong!”
“The best cigar I ever had...love it. CI's price is 50% to 65% cheaper than cigar shops locally...just ordered a box of 7x54 at a great deal. Love the 5x54...never had a bad stick...El Rey del Mundo has been consistent for the last 10+ years I've been smoking them...you will never go wrong will a EL REY DEL MUNDO!!!”
“My top pick for cigars. Smoking this baby was like eating a kick ass meal that you don't mind spending good money on, but the price was also great!! Highly recommend!!!”
“This cigar is the finest smoothest most delicous cigar I have ever enjoyed. I've only been smoking for around a year and have had , Padron to Cohiba to Victor Sinclairs on the lower end of my preference. I've had close to 150 different cigars in that year and I can honestly say that El Rey Delmundo DESTROYS THEM ALL!!! They even wrap them in toilet paper so you can wipe the Amazement off your face after you've tried one.”
“These cigars never, ever disappoint! I've been smoking them for years and I tell ya...whenever I just want a good, consistent, tasty cigar, all I gotta do is look for the toilet paper in the box! I love how they wrap them in tissue, and the taste works perfectly for me...no, I can't tell you all about the hints of spices, coffees, tea, or all of the other flavors that others LOVE to tell you about...all I know is that I will always enjoy an ERdM, always have, never had a bad one, great value.”
“I smoked these years ago and loved them. Just revisited the toro oscuro and what a treat! Perfect draw, burn, ash, billows of smoke, and I'm still tasting the semi-sweet dark chocolate and pepper! I've got to get a box next payday!”
“All of my expectations, and I will admit they were hoggishly high, were overwhelmed with an sure confirmation that this is one great cigar.”
