These are consistently great cigars that have a lot of sweet and spicy flavors with outstanding construction. While they aren\'t overly complex they are loaded with spicy flavors and a medium-full body that has a dense mouth-feel. These cigars tend to produce a lot of smoke, both from an easy draw and from the burning foot. It\'s a tremendous cigar for the money. Corona shaped cigars like this one are one of my top favorite sizes for any occasion.

The Don Carlos line in general is one of my personal favorites to light up in the morning. They tend to have a slight bit of sweetness that goes well with coffee and the construction is top notch. Every time I have lit up this particular cigar I have never been disappointed. Just perfect construction with a slow and even burn time and time again. The cigar maintains a solid feel in the hand and draws incredibly smooth. It\'s packed with flavor and just a delicious well rounded cigar overall. Medium bodied, never overwhelming and a great choice for all levels of experience. It\'s not the cheapest smoke to enjoy but by the time I\'m done with one of these it\'s the last thing I\'m thinking about. If anyone likes lancero shaped or skinnier cigars, this is an absolute must try.

The España line is a favorite of mine from Quesada. They are unique in flavor and have a luring quality in the aroma. Construction is great, they burn well and smoke without effort. They have a lot of flavor and a mild-medium body. These are great in the morning or when I don\'t want something heavy on the palate but still want a cigar with a lot of flavor that isn\'t overly complex. The robusto size is just a classic. I\'d be happy to light this up at any time.

This is a fantastic short cigar that offers a ton of flavor and a unique personality. I\'ve had some of the original Roxxos for years now and they are still smoking incredibly well. Smokes without any effort at all and packs a well-rounded experience in such a small size. Sweet, spicy, medium body with a full aroma.

The Brick House maduro is a great cigar, especially for the money. It\'s loaded with flavor and character. It\'s fairly complex with noticeable changes in the aroma and taste as the cigar was smoked. IT had sweet and spicy notes with nuts and woody traits. It gradually built to a medium-full, full body. Great overall construction and a great value cigar.

For anyone that likes bold and spicy cigars, this is a great choice. It offers a lot of peppery spice in the nose, aroma and taste. This one is full bodied and will definitely leave a lasting impression that may not be ideal for a novice but appreciated by a more experienced palate. The aroma is rich and full, which matches the mouthfeel and overall character of this cigar.

I really enjoyed this cigar as soon as I tried it. The pre-light smell was sweet and rich. The cigar felt solid in the fingers and had an effortless draw. It offered a lot of intriguing flavors and complexity. A spiciness dominated the mouth feel, which became creamier as the cigar was enjoyed. It went from a dominating spicy earthiness and revealed more sweet, nutty, cracker like notes as the cigar burned down. The body was present and well balanced with the flavor profile of the cigar. Medium-full overall with a lot of personality.

The Nat Sherman Sterling is one of my go-to cigars when I want to sit down and appreciate a milder cigar. The robusto is a classic size, however the lancero is my favorite in this blend. The Sterling line is a bit pricey but can easily stand next to other mild cigars that are in the same price category. The Sterling line offers more of a earthy nuttiness, cocoa, as well as black and white pepper notes. They are well made with some complexity, balance and finesse. You can get a rich flavorful experience without the punch of a full bodied cigar.

I loved this cigar from the first puff. It\'s an extra long lancero shaped cigar. I personally like smaller ring gauges, however, this cigar really stands out to me because of it\'s unique flavor profile and taste. The aroma has spice characteristics such as cinnamon, white pepper and nutmeg, with more nuts and cracker, toast-like notes coming through in the aroma. The cigar has a refined quality and is one of my choices when I have some time to sit back and enjoy everything it has to offer.

These cigars have a distinct personality. They are rich in flavor and have great balance. Construction is top notch without any issues or effort needed. All P.G. cigars have a good amount of actual age to them. Meaning they were rolled and then aged for years. They are full of bright floral notes and have a nice, subtle spiciness and some sweet tones in the full aroma. For me, these are great early on in the day or when you want a cigar with a lot of flavor but not a lot of body.

I\'m a fan of the entire Matilde Oscuro line. It offers a lot of flavor, complexity and full aromas with a balanced texture. As the cigars age, they smooth out revealing more nuances in the flavor and aromas while reserving a full flavored character.

An in-your-face spicy cigar with a hardy, full body that sets in pretty quickly. A great choice for someone looking for a smaller format cigar that also offers a lot of spice and full nicotine strength.

This torpedo shaped cigar had nice eye appeal and felt good in the hand with a slight box-pressed shape. IT offered a lot of spicy pepper and coffee notes with a mild sweetness on the back end of the taste. Builds in strength as it was smoked finishing very full and packed a punch.

For those who like bold aromas with a lot of spice and chocolate notes, this is a great blend to go to. The aroma really stands out on each size in the blend. I\'ve given other sizes in the blend higher ratings but if you are a fan of this size and like a lot of character in your cigars I\'d suggest this one any day.

I normally stray away from cigars with different wrappers, but I\'ve had my share of Cabinetta cigars. The maduro end at the head of the cigar leaves a sweeter taste on the lips that goes well with the dense, creamy texture and spiciness of the of the cigar. Medium bodied overall, great construction.

This cigar had a little bit of a rugged appearance but had an amazing full aroma with spices, nuts and a sweet rich tone. Easy to enjoy with a mild to medium body. Lonsdale cigars are another favorite choice of mine. This one smokes with ease and delivers a lot of flavor.

This was a pleasant cigar when new and also after it\'s been aged for some time. Complex full flavors with a body that accentuated the flavors instead of over powering them with a nice spicy and sweet aroma.

This was a gnarly looking cigar with a thick Connecticut broadleaf wrapper. What it may have lacked in appearance, it made up in flavor and aroma. I can appreciate cigars that have floral like notes in the aroma and this one definitely had it. I\'d recommend it to anyone who appreciates that characteristic or even to lighter bodied fans that want a full flavored, unique experience. It was sweet, spicy and incredibly aromatic. The finish of each puff had a lingering sweet taste. The floral tones, black pepper spices and sweetness of this cigar always makes it stand out to me. This cigar ages incredibly as well.

As it\'s says above - This was a complex, full-bodied, full flavored cigar that left a lasting impression. The full character of this cigar set in quick and didn\'t let up in the flavor, aroma or body department. It had a lot of nuances, spices, flavors and aromas that developed as it was smoked.

Ever since the first time I tried a cigar from the Cabaiguan Guapos line, I\'ve been a fan. Just so many nuances in the flavor with sweet and spicy characteristics. The flavor and aromas dance all over the taste buds keeping you intrigued for the duration of the cigar. Flavors develop as the cigar is smoked and the body rounds out at a solid medium. Great overall construction, this is a cigar that has smoked well time and time again.

One of my favorite 2017 releases. I would have given it a higher rating but being a new cigar I haven\'t been able to spend much time with it. I\'ve only had the pleasure to smoke a few. I\'m excited to see how this one ages. It\'s bold, spicy, earthy with a lot of cocoa. The box press feels nice and the cigar smoked effortlessly. Full favors, full and rich aroma with a full body. I\'ll definitely be revisiting this one.
