I smoked my whole box in about 2 months. They are pretty good. I’d put the strength at a solid medium. On the whole; construction, burn, and draw were all damn near perfect for the entire box. Not a squeaky wheel in the bunch.
As for the “Cubanesque” flavor.....I guess their are some similarities with just a hint of that Cuban “twang” as some like to call it. Along with the “twang”, I had a little earth, honey, and baking spice.
All in all a nice medium bodied smoke. My only complaint was the cost. Even at the discounted price of $650 for the box, I can’t see spending that much for a “Cubanesque” experience when that same amount can get me the real thing.....and depending on what real thing you go with you could have enough left over for a nice box of Padron 1926 or Family Reserve.
On the other hand, I did enjoy them enough that if I see them on sale I will grab a couple sticks.
