CG Rating

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: (Otter)
After receiving the Mombacho a little over three weeks ago, I left the stick at 65% RH until I pulled it out to smoke. It was a full body building to full strength in the last third. Total burn time w... Read More

Coming from Aganorsa/Casa Fernandez this was about what I was expecting, both in terms of flavor (fuel fumes aside) and construction. An effortless, excellent, and flavorful smoke with just the right... Read More

This was my first cigar in 5 days and it definitely hit me like a "Nuke" on the fresh palate and nicotine free system. I liked the strength even though it hit hard at first, I havent felt that in a w... Read More

I can see why some may be bored by this cigar. The sweet and creamy flavors were pleasant but lacked intensity. The addition of some spice would have been welcome. My thanks to Kent for the opportunit... Read More

Overall, I enjoyed this cigar. The uptick of woodiness in the finish was a bit more than I enjoy, but, it did not take away from the enjoyment of the cigar. Thank you to Kent for including me in this ... Read More

This is definitely a cigar to have on hand if you enjoy anything Fuente or like the Dominican flavor profile. It can stand up to just about anything you are drinking. I would say it's a few notches ab... Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Chuck (Cfickter)
Something can be said for the consistency. This cigar doesn’t jump around or have a large amount of complexity, but when you find a flavor you like, why change? The cigar lived up to everything yo... Read More
