“I took a shot on a bundle of these a few weeks ago, and I am so glad I did. This is a legit cigar and for a great price. Very well constructed, even burn. The flavor was nice too. I'm not going to get flowery on you here, but I will say this: if you like Te Amo, Matacan is a steal. Scientifically, I couldn't tell you why, but there is a great earthiness to Mexican tobacco that you aren't going to get elsewhere. It is definitely distinct. Here's the deal though: you either love it or hate it. The good news is that this is an inexpensive way to find out where you stand. Like I said, this cigar can hang with a pricier smoke any day. Definitely worth it. I'm psyched to see that CI is continuing to stock it!”
“Smoked one upon receipt, and was not impressed. I will let them rest in the humidor a couple of months and will give it another shot.”
“Actually ordered these based on a review in "The Cigar Companion", a book I acquired some time back. Surprised these would be listed in such a publication, I took a chance on them. I ordered the No. 4, and being the impatient type I am, tried one pretty much right off the truck. As someone else mentioned, I too found it a bight tight on the draw, but only for the first inch or so. Flavor was leathery/dry, not at all unpleasent, but not a premium either. I noticed it getting a bit "snakey" toward the end, so figure this is about a 2/3 smoke-able stick. Again, not a bad thing, especially given the price! Another home run in my book, CI!”
“I am so happy to have gotten a bundle (#4) at such a great sale price! Matacan was one of the first cigars I ever smoked, and I've become big fan of Mexican cigars. I haven't seen them on the market in a couple of years, and it's nice to see them again! These really benefit from some time in the humidor, as the rustic outer wrappers tend to dry out easily. The flavor is great and solid, not necessarily complex, but different from other kinds of cigars--Mexican tobacco tends towards a a kind of "oakiness," I guess you could call it, and a slight sweetness. There none of the bitterness of cheap tobacco, so don't let the price fool you. Matacans sometimes have a slight tightness, but once they get burning, they're usually very consistent.”
