Overall this is an great cigar.  I enjoyed the strength and the way it continued to intensify throughout the length of the cigar.  The flavors and aroma were rich and enjoyable.&nb...Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: akira (akira)
Overall, this cigar was disappointing as the flavors did not develop into anything more than a light leather and earth.  In addition, the burn issues were definitely distracting and made thi...Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: akira (akira)
Overall, this smoke was excellent for a mild cigar.  I don't usually seek out mild cigars, but if I was in the mood for one, this would definitely be toward the top of my list.  Th...Read More

This was an attractive cigar.  The dark wrapper was well complemented by the stark white label with its gold accents.  The first inch showed promise but the promise quickly faded.&...Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: sam a
I will never buy this cigar. I really think it is a shady practice to dye a wrapper to make it look darker. And if you are going to dye it at least make it so it doesn't wipe of on the customer's hand...Read More

I would really like to give this cigar another shot (although probably in a different size). It was enjoyable in the beginning and if the last half would have kept it together, I think it would have p...Read More

CG Rating
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: sam a
In the end, I would say this was a good tasting complex cigar that burned horribly. It was a real pain to smoke. In part because of the burn issues, but also because in my opinion a RG of 60 is silly ...Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Ken Kelley (Ken Kelley)
The first inch of the cigar was pleasing with a slight sweetness, coffee notes, and thick creamy smoke. I'm disappointed the burn issues interfered with its development as it was headed in a good dire...Read More

This is a good looking FAT stick, with some minor flaws.
Overall, it was not an unpleasant one hour smoke, but is too mild for my taste, and had a few fleeting unpleasant moments.
I wouldn't tur...Read More
Cuba Aliados (Core Line) Toro ExtraDecember, 200979
CG Rating
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Nathan Fleck (Hound10)
Overall - this cigar was slightly above average. I did feel the high point of the cigar was it's construction as the flavors weren't very complex, however, constant. Due to the fact that it didn't lea...Read More
Cuba Aliados (Core Line) Toro ExtraDecember, 200955
CG Rating
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Larry (ljlemer)
What was Rolando Reyes thinking? This cigar is awful, unless you are in it for the solid ash and near-perfect burn. For me, a terrible taste is a deal breaker, no matter what else is done well. I don'...Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Don Miller (DonM)
Out of respect for Pete for sponsoring the Critique, I continued with the review even with the wrapper/binder being split right at the cap.  With the split, it created draw issues, which pro...Read More

This is a decently priced cigar, however, I do not believe that it lives up to its hype. It is a fairly well constructed cigar and the flavors are palatable but nothing to really write home about. All...Read More

Overall I found this cigar to be pretty and well put together, save the loose draw. The flavor was pretty bad due to the harshness. This was not a good cigar, I didn’t like it. I do have a bit of hope...Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Corey M. Mayo (cmmayo)
This cigar only lasted about 40 minutes. The strength of the cigar was perfect for my taste. I think any stronger and the peppery bite would have been unpleasant.
An above average, well-made cigar...Read More

I'm not a huge RP fan but this was an ok cigar. I tend to judge all "sun grown" cigars against the Fuente' sun grown but maybe that isnt fair. That is a great cigar.

This may have been a little...Read More

This was great cigar, which I would gladly smoke again. Even though I had some burn issues, which I might try to correct by storing the next one in lower humidity. This one had a pretty powerful nicot...Read More

Unlike the standard Santa Ana Robusto, I enjoyed this cigar.  The harsh flavors that were there with the standard version are mellowed out by the maduro wrapper.

There was still some ...Read More

I am hoping that the specimen that I received was an anomaly.  The burn was very bad, and that may have affected the flavor to some extent.  However, the metallic taste and the fac...Read More

All in all, this wasn't a bad cigar.  It was much better than it's lighter wrapped cousin.  It lacked the darker chocolate/cocoa flavors I would normally expect from a maduro. ...Read More

This is definitely not a cigar I would go out of my way to find.  Although it felt firm to the touch, it was very light and smoked as if it was under-filled.  The flavor was that o...Read More
