This cigar is well contructed with an easy draw....between medium and full bodied you get lots of flavor. Hints of pepper on the back end, but nothing too harsh. Cigar burned even through out with no touchups. Nice cigar for the price.
Tried one today; it was a great smoke. Smooth and with a hint of pepper. Smoked well to the end. Tasted like another. Thanks Steve!
Good smoke, great flavor. This bad boy has nice burn, takes about 45 minutes. I will be ordering more soon!
Cigar smokers and SAMCRO fans alike, you can believe the hype on these smokes. Solid smoke. Rich, full body. Like everyone else mentioned, there's a taste of pepper throughout. Bought 5 just to try, will likely be purchasing a full set.
Love the nostalgia aspect of these smokes, as Sons of Anarchy is one of my favorite shows ever, but I can almost guarantee that Clay would not let one of these touch his lips, let alone puff. This is a boring cigar, not horrible, but VERY average...even for the price...I have smoked many cheaper cigars that are better. This smoke is gimmick driven, but as a collectible I bought five. But the remaining 4 will probably never leave the humidor. A true cigar lover that is not smacking up will avoid this with regard to smoking. For fun, not reality. Thanx...
Not a bad smoke, very peppery on the lips, smooth draw, even burn, had a peppery, earthy flavor throughout. I will be making this stick an addition to my humidor more frequently.
I was really expecting a cheap cigar, but because I am a SOA fan I tried them. Getting ready to order more, I was so surprised with this smoke, it blew me away.
Was expecting an overpriced gimmick cigar when my son gave me one to try...very nice surprise...smooth from start to finish...medium bodied smoke....smoked it til I burnt my fingers...just ordered a box of Toro's !
Had the pleasure of trying one of these last night at the CI Super Store. Very well constructed with an easy draw. Was an enjoyable smoke and I didn't want it to end!
Really enjoyed this cigar, love SOA and was not disappointed. Will purchase again.
I figured as most...just a gimmick, right??? How good can it really be? I know, just another company following in the footsteps of CAO and their Soprano's line. BUT, honestly I've enjoyed this cigar. I bought a 5 pack of the toro (6x54) and not disappointed by any means. I like cigars with a fairly open draw, TONS of smoke, and great construction. I did get some sweetness and pepper as well. The Sons of Anarchy has it all...and more!!! The burn was a little wavy, but not needing any attention or re-light. I will definitely buy again!
Like many here, I expected this to be a gimmicky endeavor. After studying the construction of the cigar, I pulled the trigger and bought a box. Let me just say, it was a HIT at the Marine Corps Ball in Waco, Texas last weekend! Great tasting smoke!
Well constructed cigar. Pre light draw hinted at the strength of the cigar. First third was smooth, rich, almost creamy flavor. Burned evenly down to the final third when I had to clean it up a little. Honestly I bought these cigars for the box and 3 finger travel case, but they are MUCH better than I expected. Not just a novelty item, The first of the bundle was on par with cigars I've tried that were much more expensive. I was pleasantly suprised, thanks again CI for an awesome deal with decent cigars!
Purchased the Robusto 5.54 box. Not sure what I was expecting, but being an SOA fan, I had myself looking forward to the smoke. When they arrived, VERY QUICKLY I MUST SAY, I vowed to be objective. I adjusted my expectations to the low level due to the economical price. No need however for you to do the same. Free case with purchase is very well constructed as well! At the start, the cigar had a very nice appearance, firmly wrapped, nice draw and evenly colored maduro wrapper. Mid way through, the taste was as good as the start. Even burn ring around cigar. At the end, still....just as nice as the start. Medium-Full bodied, more towards Medium+. Definitely a cigar that you'll have to remove the band from because you'll want that part of that part as well. I'm very glad I made this purchase. I was smoking this when Clay was shot, so it was not the cigar that had me choking, but the mere surprise.
Had one form the big sampler special they just had, a Robusto. I let it sit in the humidor for a few days since I was anxious to try it after reading the reviews. It was firmly constructed, had a nice preborn flavor and draw. I lit it and found it not to be as peppery as some said but that is ok. There was cedar, earth, a bit of pepper and some other flavors that just weren't as distinct. It burned evenly and slow. The draw was ok, no billowing smoke but it didn't make you dizzy puffing on it either. It was a good cigar but nothing outstanding. I too have had better cigars in a lesser cost range. Don't misunderstand, it was good but nothing to shout about. I wouldn't buy one on its own. If it were in a sampler, I would take it. If someone gave me one, I would smoke it. I enjoyed it but it did not have that, "have to get some of these" effect.
Im not a cigar pro i dont pick apart every cigar i smoke, but when i find one i like i know it and im surprised to say im smoking an soa right now bout an inch in and its actually a decent cigar - i fig they where made just to hype the show for a quick buck but id buy them again --- pretty tasty -- they could be a tad cheaper but so could everything in this world haha
Negatives: This cigar was given to me by a friend who bought a box. I'm glad it was free because I would have been ticked if I had paid for it. I expected alot from this cigar based off of the solid construction, prelit aroma, and smooth draw, but I was mistaken. The first few draws were filled with hay, paper, and tobacco. I kept smoking expecting the flavors to evolve a bit, but never did get much in the way of any distinguishable flavor that would set this smoke apart from other forgettable cigars that have become lost in my repository of "cigars I've smoked that suck".
Positives: The cigar produced a good bit of smoke that smelled better than it tasted. The burn was incredibly even. Great construction. This would be a great gift for a friend that is a bigger SOA fan than a cigar smoker.
One of the best cigars I've ever smoked. Good Taste and burns nice. I will be ordering a box set. Well worth the money.
Picked up a 5-pack of Robustos and this is, to me, the epitome of the term "stogie". A well-constructed, well-burning, short, chunky cigar that doesn't taste bad, but whose burning aroma and smoke are rather stifling. Decent enough to smoke (outdoors or in a very well ventilated area), but probably quite offensive to others nearby.
I hoping for better - yes it looks impressive and the packaging is top notch- but I was disappointed in the flavor. Lots of smoke - but I was very disappointed - shucks! Sorry - I wish I could recommend - but no - I can't .
Solidly built, well crafted. Has a nice even burn to the end. The taste was good but i did not care for the aroma. The wife liked the aroma. Have a couple left and will smoke. But to me not a full box "worthy " to buy. But i can say i would recomend.
Here is my breakdown on this smoke. Quality construction, quality tobacco, loads of flavor, tight white ash, needs no attention. Forget the name. They could call this cigar "Gilligan's Island",but the fact is, it's awesome if you like the med-full smokes with Nicaraguan tobaccos. This exceeds all my expectations of an enjoyable smoke. Going on the daily deal right now to order 10 more. This is a nice venture by Black Crown.
I've smoked my first 'Sons of Anarchy'. A very pleasant surprise! Enjoyed all the way to end. Good draw,Great taste, and I love the Large ring size. If You are not a Fan of the TV Show, "For-get-about-it". Take the Band off, Enjoy a Great Cigar.
Great smoke regardless of the gimmick names. Great taste and consistent burn all the way to the nub.
This was a pleasant surprise if ever there was one. I got one of these in a sampler, threw it in my humidor awaiting the season premier of the show. Figured I would enjoy it for the gimmick it was. I was pleasantly surprised. Whereas it wasn't the best cigar I ever smoked it was actually very good. I was able to enjoy this cigar all the way to the nub. Now I'm no aficionado, I don't know if it was woody or nutty. But it was GOOD!
I thought I was just buying a novelty cigar since I like the show. I was way wrong. VERY GOOD! If you like a real cigar with a little spice and not some sissy piece of candy, this is a great stick. I'm ordering some more right now.
Love these cigars, now my number one!
Very good cigar with perfect draw and burn. Very reasonable price too.
Being a fan of the show and also it was on sale, I bought them and did not expect much because I expected a gimmick. Blew my mind and cannot wait to finish this box and would not mind paying regular price if I run out before they are on sale again.
These cigars have to be one of the best tasting I've had ever. Was wrapped just right for the perfect draw. I just had to reorder more. Don't hesitate on trying these SAMCRO sticks.
Not just a cigar with a fancy label. Black crown is a top five in my book, this cigar is full flavor powerhouse!
Did some research about the brand Clay was smoking on SONS. Found out about Black Crown. Wasn't sure it would be much of a smoke since it might be considered a product promoted on TV. Was very pleasantly surprised. Smooth, easy draw that burned long and even. Hint of cocoa and pepper. Would think there would be a wee bit of bitter since it is cocoa, but this smoke had none of it. Not sweet, but not bitter. Neutral. Will definitely purchase again. Hope cigar continues long after the Sons of Anarchy.
WOW, I loved the show and bought these as a novelty....but have stocked my humidor with them. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed.
A nice, consistent, everyday smoke.
....After smoking them they are one of the best cigars I have smoked. I have turned some of my friends on to them and they loved them. I smoke some other brands also, but I smoke 2-3 a day and usually the Black Crown. The Torpedo's are my favorite. Keep them coming, but do kind of miss the free cutter that came with them. Made excellent gifts to friends.
I'm another of those who do not pick apart a cigar. I've never eaten dirt, never eaten hay, don't chew on cedar and my belt is for my waist and not my mouth. So with that said I know when I find a cigar that I enjoy. I enjoyed this cigar and continue to buy them. My favorite is the Prospect and I think I am on my sixth or seventh box. I can't say you will like them but I sure do. But then don't just go by a review, buy some for yourself and give it a try.
Awesome smoke for its size. Plan on getting more of these little gems!
I was a little skeptical thinking it was just a just a cheap cigar being sold with the SOA label on it. But I was wrong! I know the reviews were good but still I was not sure. I got the box yesterday and took a few for some of the members in my MC club to try and they all loved them. Good draw, great taste, almost like they are slightly(and I mean very slightly) infused with a cognac or something similar. Even burn, not harsh at all. I will be buying more. All the members in my club really freaked (they are all SOA fans) when they saw them, they all loved the box. A very good purchase.
Bought a box of these on a whim not really expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. For under a Benjamin a box it’s a nice smoke, well-constructed, even burn. I would say a med bodied with a little kick in the end.
These cigars are great.. Nice taste and a nice wrap
Great cigar. I loved it, so did everyone I shared them with. The box is awesome as well.
Great sticks, great price. Highly recommend
I got these kind of as an impulse thing because I've watched the show. I was pleasantly surprised. Great draw, great burn, great ash. The aroma was pleasant with a touch of cedar. The taste had a hint of chocolate. I'm planning on adding this to my everyday list.
real good smoke got to get some more of these
What a awesome smoke!!!! Highly recommend!!
I too expected this would be a cheap marketing gimmick Cigar. I was pleasantly surprised. Although I didn't have high expectations for the money I did expect some resemblance of a moderately decent smoke of handmade quality.
What I liked the best was they had a smooth and easy draw, hint of pepper and very mild aftertaste, yet giving me a nice 45 minute moderate quality smoke. I just ordered 5 more.
Bought these because i like the show. Was very suprised how much of a pleasure it was to smoke. Really looking foward tothe summer so i can trulh enjoy this beast.
Two words. Love It
Ok, I was scepticle about this cigar? You know, a novelty. Let me say, it's built great, flawless, almost too perfect. A little hard but this thing is a thing of beauty. I had to clip it twice, first clip the draw was tough so I clipped it about another 1/8" , 1/2" total, draw still a bit slow but the warmer it gets the draw loosens up to a medium draw. I like to double and triple my hits you know to really get the full effect of the body and flavor of a cigar. This stick starts real woodsy, spicy and stays that way through the meat of the body. Black pepper fills your nose along with nutmeg, your pallet picks up suttle hints of Carmel mixed with cedar. I believe that after this cigar rest for a few months in my humi. It will only get better. I'll give this stick an 83 -85, not bad you won't go wrong on buying 5. The last 2.5" gets even more intense with the spices and wood. I like a bit more sweetness on the final leg of a cigar but I still enjoyed it. Might not be a finger burner but close. Burns fairly sharp but burns cool and you have to constantly warm it up with lighter, or match if you prefer. All in all thumb and a half up.
