Para Ti Original Canonazos3.5 Star Ratings+j1/26/2015 1:22 AM
Outstanding construction, tightly packed, with a slightly snug draw and razor-sharp burnline. The flavor profile was unfortunately underwhelming, marked mainly by timid notes of black pepper and sweet wood. Seemed to be most interesting at the nub.
86+ points / 3.5 stars
My thanks to sauraspop for allowing me the opportunity to try this.
Rocky Patel Decade Robusto3.5 Star RatingChurchpin1/25/2015 4:30 PM
Smoked while walking in a cool wind so it burned a bit faster than I wished. It was bitter at times but I think it's because it burned too quickly. There were nice moments of cedar and leather and oak flavors this is a medium smoke in my book. Want to try this smoke again and compare it in less wind. Probably will get a higher score next time.
Flatbed Cigar Co. Panacea Azul - Cameroon Grande Pyramid4 Star Ratingtimpellis1/25/2015 1:08 PM
Got this as part of secret santa and it was great. The draw was a bit tight until halfway through and then it really opened up. Hints of cedar and an overall barnyard feel. Moderate amount of spice along with some creaminess that shows up in the second half. Some complex flavors make this a very enjoyable smoke.
John Bull Cigarillo2 Star Ratingebernabe1/25/2015 10:56 AM
Not much flavor to this cigarillo. However, it did burn well.  Very mild and no complexity to it.  Did not even get a tobacco flavor.  A fast smoke that burned hotter than what I'm used to.
Al Capone Candela Filtered3.5 Star Ratingebernabe1/25/2015 10:49 AM
Was a decent cigarillo. Was mild bodied.  I got from the cigar the "green cigar" flavor that goes with candelas.  I would smoke these again.  I'm not usually one for cigarillos, but this one is nice.
Oliva/ Studio Tabac Nub "Dub" Double Maduro4 Star RatingC130Driver1/25/2015 10:02 AM
I was very pleased with this cigar. For a Geek who often prefers a medium to medium-full stick, I was expecting it to be to strong for my tastes given it was a double maduro. To the contrary, I really enjoyed it wall the way through. The smoke was very thick and flavorful. The flavor was rich and sweet in the classic maduro way. I was expecting the draw to be too tight due to the firmness of the cigar, but found the draw to be very smooth and unrestricted. This stick held it's ash very well and burned even the entire way through.
Graycliff G2 Maduro Pirate3 Star RatingC130Driver1/25/2015 9:48 AM
Overall, this was an okay cigar. It was a little on the mild side and a bit one dimensional; lacking any complex flavor. That being said, the flavor was enjoyable especially for a mellow relaxing cigar. The flavor was essentially the same the entire way through. The smoke was thick and cool and the burn was very even. Only one relight was necessary and it was my own fault for letting it sit too long. I smoked it right down to the end and it never became harsh. While I wouldn't purchase a box of these, it might not be bad to have a fiver in the humidor for nights you want to kick back and relax with a mellow mild cigar. The stick lasted about 1 hour 45 minutes.
Mundi Victor Boheme4.5 Star Ratingtitodwi1/25/2015 6:07 AM
it is very nice cigar all beginner should try. it is very eye catching about its shape, and exotic colour. its shape like bullet. the taste is creamy nutty and it has a pretty long finish on my throat, really good aroma of the smoke. i enjoy it when blow it through my nose. i feel it is has a little bit vanila sensation in my nose. what a nice pleasure to have it in the end of my day.
Ramayana Corona4 Star Ratingtitodwi1/25/2015 6:01 AM
first impression about this cigar is elegant. it is nice firm and neat with exotic dark brown wraper. just love it at the first sight. and it smell very good.. it has a medium earthy smell
it has a nice easy draw and creamy sensation. earthy and fresh grassy taste. sometime i feel a sweet tobacco taste. it is also very very smooth after taste. i like it very much. it is really smooth. nutty taste come in the last part. a little bit spicy at the last part. love it.
Adipati Super Corona3.5 Star Ratingtitodwi1/25/2015 5:46 AM
this cigar is a long and satisfying (enough) cigar. well, i need at least 1h to enjoy it. good stogie to enjoy in a long time break. easy draw, not too airy or smoky. it comes on a medium smoke, sweet tobacco taste, i like to blow it through my nose sometime, very soft with a little bit cocoa taste at the first part. but it won't stay for a long time. creamy at the half part, roasted nut sensation become stronger in the last part. little bit spicy at thr last part. i gonna buy it again for a variant stogie.
