Smoked this monster yesterday, here are a few thoughts.
1) I have had problem with both Hoyas I have smoked. Both cracked and peeled, this one not excluded but it was rolled so well it smoked right through the cracks.
2) I had heard this tasted buttery so I had to see for myself. Its almost...
Thought I would take my first try at a review here. This is one of my favorite smokes so I have to add my thoughts.
Draw: Can get a large mouth of smoke with this baby, draw is perfect
Construction: Medium to small veins, oily and have never had one with a soft spot
Burn: Holds onto the ash...
I have been perusing this forum today and found plenty of great info. Thanks!
I would classify myself as a occassional cigar smoker. The extent of my experience is limited to the occassional smoke on the golf course with friends.
What brings me here? Glad you asked!
Well this very well might be my last "sorry" review. But here it goes
This cigar had a nice construction and a very good draw. The first third was full of spice and wood notes. The second third I detected hint of coffee in the blend. It finished very harsh...almost unsmokeable. The best...
Smoked this medium smoke tonight....5 bucks.
Not bad...even draw decent draw tasted like tobacco. No real flavors...just smoked like a medium cigar but was pleasant.
Cigar Size= 5.0" x 50 ring
Pre-light aroma= good
Burn= very nice
Flavor= This stick is somewhat one dimension. The flavor is spicy all the way through and it has a honey base wrapper that is not bad. Its a mild smoke but quite pleasant.
Bought this for about 5 bucks
This is not a smoke for the light hearted, This is as full bodied as I have smoked. I love full bodied cigars but this was too the extreme. It reminded me of eating wings way too hot. It was more for show than for taste. The taste was very ok. I couldnt...
So I smoked one last night, and enjoyed it thoroughly. Anyone else like these?
I stopped by the Cigar Factory New Orleans on my trip to New Orleans for the RTDA 2005 trade show. Located on Decatur Street, itís conveniently right between two of my favorite places in the French Quarter, The Kerry Irish Pub and Cafť Dumond. I came in at 10:30 PM and was very happy to see a few...
Well I grabbed one of these for the Steelers game today for about 12 bucks. Here is my personal toughts.
Above average construction burned well but did have to relight. The first half packed a serious punch. The first half was very full bodied with more than a hint of peppery taste. It has a...
Referring to ISOM, had the opportunity to smoke one tonight and thought I'd share my impressions on this cigar. The first inch of the cigar was quite a bit spongier than the rest of the cigar and it made me interested in what this little thing is all about. The first third of the cigar was a bit...
I personally think Cohibas are overpriced and overrated.
But the Cohiba Siglo II I smoked the other day was amazing, especially for a petite corona.
It has the best construction I have seen, the cap was absolutely perfect ! This roller had some talent.
The burn was amazing to the end, no...
Cigars International is having a clearance on these. Wow! The chiefs are 7 1/2 by 52! An impressive smoke to say the least. Anyway, they are tasty medium bodied smokes with the signature Indian Tabac flavor profile. Cedary and aromatic, with a sweet finish. They're selling a box of 25 for $50, plus...
Peterson Gran Reserva
Size: 7 inches and low-mid 40's ring gauge (donít know the exact size, couldnít find any info online).
Construction: Perfectly strait sides, good cap, no veins or stems big enough to cause any problems.
Draw: Firm, not too loose or too tight.
Never had one. Can anyone offer any comments on these?
I cant speak for any of the other Rey cigars but this is a very good cheap smoke. This is my staple smoke and I get it for about $3.40.
Dark brown wrapper with terrific construction. Rarely has to be relit. Burns even draws even better. Taste is medium to full bodied with hints of pepper...
I bought this stick for $11.75 which is high but for some reason cigars in cleveland are pricey.
The construction was flawless and the burn perfect. The taste howover left me extremely disappointed. I picked up in the first third a metallic taste on my tongue with hints of wood. This did...
Nice draw. Uneven burn was my fault. Somewhat tasty.
After smoking a number of the the regulars and the seconds, I have to say that they are not the same cigar. The seconds are harsher, have more burn problems, the ash falls easier, and they look and taste different. For the price, the seconds aren't a bad cigar, but I wouldn't say they nearly equal...
I've never posted a review before so please bear with me.....
These were purchased for me by a friend visiting Bethesda, MD. The owner of the shop (JB Sims) didn't have the cigars I was after (RP Reo, Torano 1959, Opus X), but he suggested these (amongst some others) as an alternative.
