I got these on a weekend special through Holt's website. I think I paid about
$15.00 with free shipping so for the price I had to grab em.
They are long filler cigars with Ecuadorian wrappers. They are a medium brown color and don't look to bad. The wrapper is nice without allot of veins and all of the cigars I had were consistent in appearance.
I smoked about ten of these before this review. The construction is very good for the money as well, I was surprised, all were firm to the touch and out of all that I smoked I had only one that was kinda rolled to tight, but loosened up at about half way through it.
Size 4 x 52
|Altez before lighting|
Cutting the cap I did notice the wrapper is a hair bit thin, but nothing major where the whole smoke fell apart. Initially on lighting I tasted allot of cedar flavors. About 1/2" in the smoke it started burning a hair crooked, but the ash is nice and lots of smoke from this cigar. I should add these draw very nice all the way to the end.
I also noticed after about half the smoke NICOTINE! and allot of it.
If you like your cigars with allot of nicotine flavor these will be great for you.
I will say these are not highly complex, and other than the nicotine rush, they smoke and burn great.
I would buy em again for the sale price...
As an update. I noticed that even as this cigar gets warmer down to the nub, the band sticks to the cigar wrapper, so be carefull when removing, this can detroy the rest of your smoke by ripping the cigar leafe.
