    This was a good cigar. A little harsh in the first few puffs and in the second third, but in the middle it was great, smooth and flavorful. Great c... Read the full review here: Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 Petit Corona Cigar Review - A little harsh

    This is a relatively mild cigar, but don't be fooled, it's taste is quite harsh with sometimes unpleasant spice. It needs some time to open up, the... Read the full review here: Oliva Serie G Special G Cigar Review - Harsh

    First box out of 5 I've bought where it was harsh ROTT! Other boxes I've had the sticks were good ROTT and got better with age. This last box......whooeee....only got 1/3 way through one to try it out and said "enough!". I hope this is just a fluke and they need more rest. Wonder if it's...

    I liked the dark look of this cigar, and the wrapper leaf was silky to the touch. The pre-light was strong, like a good cigar should be. The init... Read the full review here: Diesel Diesel Unlimited Cigar Review - Bold with a hint of harsh

    Nice tight white ash. Smooth draw. Good construction. Like most new cigars you try it started out overwhelming. But rather than mellow out this one... Read the full review here: Nub Habano 358 Cigar Review - A little harsh...

    My gf got me a box of the AB Maxx traditional torpedoes for x-mas along with the AB premium sampler which included a siboney, overture, fix, and the tempus. Well Im currently smoking the Tempus as I write this and I must say I am not in the least bit impressed. Its harsh, lacks complexity, and...

    I guess this is half tutorial and half brainstorming session. I've only been smoking seriously for about 5 months, but I probably have close to a hundred sticks under my belt. I figure I'm as equipped as most anyone to share my opinions and experiences. Or I'm just a mouthy noob.:biggrin1...

    OK, being a noob I wonder what is the difference between a spicy, peppery taste and harshness? I am thinking I may have been confusing the two tastes with my innocent little palette. I know taste is subjective, but any direction would help.

    I hated this smoke. I had three of them and each was harsh and had no characteristics of habano tobacco. A waste of money. Read the full review here: Camacho 1962 Pre Embargo Cigar Review - Boring and harsh

    I'm sure I will get hammered on asking the following but I'm gonna ask anyway. Would like some input on why some cigars have a harsh or sharp taste that drys out my mouth. I have found this with most NC's and very, very few CC's. Obviously it's me because so many guys love the NC's. Can it be...

    Every once in a while, I will "over smoke" a cigar - I'll draw too much too often. It seems to burn hot and then ends up tasting a bit harsh. Is there any fix for the harshness or should I just finish it the way it is or simply toss it? :cb

    My humidor is carrying the 65% heirtfelt beads, and the % never goes any higher than 62%....:hn BUt it seems to me the cigars are becoming alittle more harsh. Is a lower humidity suppose to change the flavor as a posed to a higher humidity like 70%? thanx everyone!

    I had a Petite Corona on fathers day night. First off this is not a review. I’m not very good at those, but I will tell you what I thought about it. It smelled good, perfect construction, nice wrapper, and cut perfectly. Prelight draw was easy with just a little resistance. Well as I was...

    In my second humidor, a small one, where the humidity drops below 65% sometimes (around 60-63%), I noticed a few of the cigars I smoked there have become harsher. Also, some of the wrappers cracked a little when smoking. I suspect it's because the humidity is too low? How to fix this up? I'm...

    You guys are really pushing me down the slope! I have spent over sixty bucks on singles only in the past month. That sounds like chump change to some of you I'm sure, but that is a TON for me. I used to be a one a week smoker but now I am going to three or four a week. I have ordered my first...
