    I received this cigar in a sampler deal from CI. I have read numerous posts about how bad Puros Indios cigars and anything else by Rolando Reyes Jr. are. Well after smoking this stick I would completely agree. From the first draw to a little past the halfway point, this cigar was disgusting...

    Well, I'm new at this so here it goes. I bought a used mosaic humidor off ebay as I've been starting to buy singles and a few doubles. It came with all kinds of stuff, ashtray, empty tins, humidification gel, etc. etc. But I was surprised, I got 5 cigars with it, so I was excited and decided...

    Tonight's reading material. Comics before the horrid age of political correctness. Hilarious and edgy, especially by today's paltry standards. Now to the cigar! Here is the breakdown: Wrapper: Maduro Size: Petite Corona I clipped the end and toasted the foot. A smooth draw and then put the...

    Puros Indios Maxima Reserva Petit Corona Length: 5" Gauge: 38 Wrapper: Ecuadorian-Sumatran This is a stick of dynamite in a firecracker package. It's a small cigar, but surprisingly flavorful and full bodied. I'm used to fuller bodied cigars, but this one I have to take slowly otherwise...

    Anyone know anything about these? Never had em', but they say they're '90 rated'. Anyone know if that means rated by their staff people or rated by one of the big mags? Seems like a good price if they are in fact, good cigars, and I like to have something quality to give to friends or what...

    Anyone has any experience with these? CI has an outrageous price - $39 for a box of 20 robustos. Looks very tempting but I have no experience with this line. :unsure:

    Read the contest questions and rules closely! The Contest Cloaca Maxima literally means the Great Sewer. Just answer a few simple questions. The city of origin of the sewer lizard urban hoax? Franoise Cooperman authored an article entitled Sewer Rats in what publication? The name of the...

    My buddies and I went on leave to a Mexican restaurant and I decided to take a couple of smokes with me. Didn't really feel in the mood before the meal to smoke but after I decided to grab a PI Maxima Reserva that I had gotten as a gift from dillon157 to try out. And I have to say I'm glad he...

    I'm wanting to know if anyone shares my affection for these suckers? I received my first from an okierock bomb, a robusto, and immediately knew I'd be looking for them. I picked up 5 or 10 of the media coronas vitola and have had the pleasure of a couple more sessions and I'm just impressed...

    I smoked a Puros Indios Maxima Reserva today ( A toro) and found it very good: I got a 5'er over a week ago, and unlike my usual practice of firing one up right away, I let these sit in my humi, and I'm glad I did. The pre-light tasting wasn't spectacular and didn't give any hints. I toasted it...

    This is a nice little smoke. 5" X 38 Lasted 40 minutes or so. Medium bodied, good tobacco flavor, sort of woodsy, with a nice finish for the last third picked up a faint sweetness near the finish. These were the first PC's I've seen in this brand so they might be something fairly new. I...

Construction....Very well, ash was inch and a half, a white perfect cylinder, went to flick, would not flick, hung on like it was welded there...

    It sucked!,lol. That was for OPT. It is a thick corona and had a nice shiny wrapper, but it seemed very thick. It had flavours of earth and some spiciness. It smelled great, but I did have some problems with the burn. I thought that may be due to the thickness of the wrapper or I didn't give it...

    Thanks to Pyro for giving me the opportunity to try this cigar! It had a nice smooth, colorado wrapper. The feel was nice and firm, and the draw was just right. The construction was very good, as could be seen by the ash and consistent burn. Upon lighting, a nice pleasant aroma was detected...

    [updated:LAST EDITED ON Mar-29-02 AT 05:32 PM (CDT)]I opened my mail today, and viola, there it was, my first Maxima Reserva by Puros Indios. OPT was kind enough to send me one of the Media Coronas. What a beautiful looking vitola, the same size as the Especial #4. A dark brown mottled...
