    Tl;DR: A well packed petite corona-esque firecracker packed with spice, oak, and chocolate. Construction of the Machito is very well done (sorry no pics)- the wrapper was not veiny and the cigar was well packed. The wrapper was cocoa brown in hue and a little bit of textured. This stick showed...

    I had surgery about 2 weeks ago and haven’t been able to smoke since then until tonight, so I wanted to light up something special to celebrate the fact that I’m feeling better (and didn’t kick the bucket on the operating table! – relatively minor surgery, but I was scared to death of being put...

    Its been a while since I wrote a review so I figured I'd write one real quick. I honestly can't even begin to guess how many Antanos I've smoked since they were released in 2002 - probably thousands, and next to the churchill the little Machito is my favorite - a very close 2nd actually.

    I have just come back inside from smoking a JdN. this cigar packs quite a bit of punch and it was a bit too strong for my liking however it was enjoyable, nice flavours, very leathery i thought, and also quite spicey, lasted a surprisingly long time, about an hour. had a few burn problems with...

    After rather looong and mentally draining day yesterday I came home wanting a really good yet short smoke. looked over my assortment 20 Party shorts left and wanted something different... selected a JDN Machito (sp) gifted from a certain mad bomber. Prelight smell was strong and spicy. Cap...

    Smoked my first one of these the other day. Maybe the strongest cigar I've ever had. Even before lighting the cigar made my lips sting and there was a distinct taste of nail polish remover which initially worried me..... After lighting though the nail polish taste was gone and I was off to...
