Love this box press new exciting cigar of 2017. Nick pulled together a cigar with great complexities of flavor without getting muddy throughout the whole cigar. Loving on the bold flavor of earthy tones mixed with spicy hints. This cigar was really great to smoke while laughing with friends cause it was so to be around.

Are you on a diet & you want a BBQ? Well here it is with no calories to boot. The Nica in this size is a great quick smoke. The smell is like brisket smoking for dinner. It\'s yummy. It\'s a mouth full of smokey wood & earthy notes with the dark oily wrapper that is just beautiful. I love this stick for a ride in the car when I am in thought.

I really was excited to smoke this cigar. The bad is stunning & that is where it ended. It truly fell short not only is the band a pain & ripped the wrapper but personally I like to leave my band on while I smoke. The flavors were quite muddy in the fact that nothing really stood out. I had to keep relighting & it was plugged. Not worth the MSRP for me

I have spent a lot of time with the Fausto in every size. Great size for hour-ish smoke. Love the rich oily wrapper that make me think of a good steak. It smokes easily & aroma of warm coco notes with some tanned leather. The taste is full body with spice. A great smoke with a glass of red wine & chocolate moose.

LOVE LOVE this short little smoke, it\'s full flavor greatness that doesn\'t take a lot time is you don\'t have it to spend. It has good amount of smoke with hints of semi sweet chocolate & earth. Love the that last kick at the end pairs great with chocolate moose

This a great pepper stick that is for sure with some great richness to it. I have never had a construction issues with it & well with Dry Cider. I really like how this cigar unfolds in flavor throughout the whole stick with out becoming muddy or flat.

I wish there were more than 5 stars for this one. What a great cigar for dessert after a wonderful meal. This is a stick takes command when it\'s in your hand. The richness of appearance alone is gorgeous. I drink Coppola Claret & it even shows off even better with raisins & earthy smoke. I could go on on.

This is a well constructed box press cigar with a pretty marbling on the wrapper. On the dry draw I found hints of cream & sweet tea. Then in smoking I found light grey smoke that stays lit & burns very easily. Flavors start with a creaminess & that tea then changes out to a darker roast coffee & finishes with spice/cedar. I did enjoy it & will smoke it again.

Well constructed and burns easily while stacking a great ash. The luscious oily/silky wrapper is a delight. The pre-light smell & the flavor on the draw are a boutique earthiness. While smoking I got great puffs of happy cocoa. This cigar has an elegance to it.

This is the 1st cigar that on pre-light smell the it smelled like a field of delicate wildflowers with hints of rich soil. After lighting the ash was light grey with speckles of black & stacked high. A lovely roller coaster of flavors that never feel over powering. Spice with pink pepper, earthiness & cumin. Very enjoyable

This is a solid cigar with surprises. The CT Corojo wrapper was very surprising to me. Instead of the leather & rich cocoa notes that I am used to I got notes of ceder, spice & pepper. I found it quite delightful. Well constructed without any issues.
