Man O' War Armada

5 Cigars

Worth. Every. Penny.

A $20 cigar runs counter to every fiber of the deep discounting instinct that runs through CI Nation's red blood. Many expensive cigars are simply 3-dollar sticks with a 10-dollar bill wrapped around it. But from time to time such a price tag is warranted…. expensive because they're actually, well, expensive. Extra care, extra long processes and extra steps during production, extra aging and optimum fermentation, extra rare and costly tobaccos and materials. Man O’ War Armada is all that and more. It's a special, personal blend of cigar master and Man O’ War maker A.J. Fernandez. A tasty elixir draped in a dark, toothy, Ecuador-Sumatra wrapper leaf and bringing a full-frontal assault of flavor: complexity like you read about, an eruption of Cuban-esque power yet nicely balanced, over-the-top notes of earth, vanilla, coffee, spices, and cedar with a crisp tobacco core. Gloriously full, voluptuous and dense, disarmingly redolent. A super-premium of the first order (red cape sold separately).

Great cigar
Lots of flavor, plenty of smoke. Full body. Burns good with a tight, stiff ash. Excellent construction. Wish I could afford to smoke these more often.

Very serious stick
Another winner from Man O' War. A well constructed big smoke. Kinda reminds me of their Phalanx. The Sumatran maduro wrapper gives it a different spin. Very deep flavors. A good hour of smooth enjoyment.

Very good but overpriced
These are good cigars and when CI has a deal on them they are worth buying- otherwise, they are overpriced.

MOW
Very likely the best cigar I've ever had.....and I've had more than a few over the years. This cigar has great flavor..full body all with great smoothness. I have bought these just about every time they have been offered in a sampler. Price is all that keeps these as special occasions smokes....but if any cigar is worth the price it's these.

Great cigar, smooth draw loads of bellowing smoke. Not great for a multitasking situation, this stick requires full attention and fits perfectly with a nice bourbon.

One of AJ’s best
Been an AJ fan for several years and Ruination is one of my fav sticks. It’s perfect after a nice dinner with great adult beverages. Burns evenly and lasts a long time. I can get a few hours out of The lengthier versions.

AJ Fernandez does it again!
A friend of mine gave me one of the armadas some years ago. I was so amazed with the cigar that I am mediately started buying and smoking them. I’ve aged up to three years and been very impressed. I still regularly smoke them right out of the box though. What a great cigar!!

Ok cigars
It’s a little strong flavored for me. The after taste is a bit hard.
4 out of 5
Pleased enough
The flavors are very good, rich and complex, 5 stars there. My issue was with the construction. It’s a large perfecto, so I get that might be part of the issue. The burn needed fixing several times, the draw was a bit to tight and the wrapper started cracking as it burned down. I’d be interested in trying the toro vitola being I’ve never had trouble with those in the man o war line, the flavor made this a worth smoke.

IMO
This cigar gets better with time. When I first received this cigar I smoked it with in 3 days. The burn was uneven, the construction was horrible and the after taste made me trash it. So I decided to let the remaining two marinate in my humidifier and I tell you after revisiting it a month later. It was the same cigar. I loved it. So I’m letting my last one marinate for at least 6 months. I would buy again but I would wait before smoking it.

A Keeper
I am going to keep these on hand for special occasions. I like the taste. Strong, but easy.

Man O' War Armada is must try!
Without a doubt this ONE great cigar! Although at retail expensive, I'd recommend trying and then if you agree pick up on specials. I LOVE THIS CIGAR and I smoke one to two cigars a day and Man O' War Armada is the one I save for special occasions.

Great Cigar
We thought that it was medium to full bodied cigar. It had notes of pepper and cedar. It started off with a slow draw, but once through the first third it opened up. Nice firm packed dark oily wrapper. Great flavors throughout. I will definitely purchase more!

It's another delicious cigar from A.J. Fernandez
It's a mighty tasty stick.

Good but not great
I have had these in the past and they have had some consistency problems. Some sticks burn perfect and are fantastic. But there have been a few that have had difficult draws... making it not so enjoyable. This batch for example out of 2 sticks so far, one was awesome, the other one was stubborn.
4 out of 5
Good One
4 Stars only because I think its a bit big but that is what i get for hoping that bigger is better.... (no pun intended). Never the less, a good cigar with very good flavor and good burn.
5 out of 5
good, not super great
well made but not as heavy or refined as I hoped for. I think a lot of the cigars that are being produced have only aged wrappers but the cigars, for the most, part are not “aged” after construction for that long. I would like to be able to buy cigars that were wrapped 5-10 years ago and just laid down for that period of time.

Man O War Armada for the win!
Normally im a rocky patel guy. I venture out to others, but Rocky is always my favorite. That being said, this man o war armada is easily in my top 5 all time cigars. I've only been in the cigar game about 2 years but you can't go wrong with this one. I try to snatch them up whenever they go on sale. That thick smoke and perfect draw gets me every time. Excellent cigar.

Not bad, just not my favorite
I would smoke it again if offered to me. But with all the choices in the full flavor category, it's hard to imagine buying these again. Nothing about this smoke makes me just say WOW.

This cigar is a grand Event all by itself
This is a super-premium cigar, no question. The CI store descriptions are always spot on, so I only have this to add: this cigar is a grand Event in and of itself. All by itself. Full-bodied and so balanced that it doesn't overwhelm, and yet you can appreciate every nuance. Do yourself a huge favor, and try these. Then you'll lie in wait for specials. *glom*

you owe it to youself to try at least 1!
there is only one thing wrong with this cigar, the price! I love this cigar! I just have to be patient and wait for a deal..these are a "treat" cigar, along with Liga Privada #9, and acid 1400cc..I love them all , just can't afford or bring myself to spend enough to smoke these all the time. Great smoke for a night with your buddies! smoking these should make the night better! I know it did mine! this is one of the few sticks I have smoked that I wish lasted longer, it was a good 90 minutes... I could have smoked it for another 90...they are that good!

Respectable Smoke-
I recently bought a fiver of the corona, and I as fairly impressed. AJ has some many blends out right now, that I'm struggling to find the differences; but this was a above average blend. It was complex, and the profile moved around enough to keep it interesting. Had a fantastic draw, and it reminded a bit of a God of Fire with it's smooth strength. I wouldn't smoke these a lot as I might get to used to the profile, but it's a definite keeper in the humidor.
