    What a wonderful little cigar! The one that I just smoked had all the ability of a Monte No5 and a bit more complexity. Minor burn issue but if you turn it then self correcting. Never had to re light in 30mins. Price may be a hinderance but well worth it methinks. Will buy more of these for sure. Cigar was rested in my humidor for 2 months after purchase.

    excellent review Jason the weather was drawingin here on Tamborine mountain and so I turned to the Siglo 1 as I thought that 30 minutes or so would see the rain arrive and I never cease to be amazed by this small cigar. The 1st third as you say is peppery and even a touch of mustard seed to it strength and as a malt whisky man I tried to match it with a dram of Glenfarclas 15yo but frankly the 1st third needs a talisker 10yo and the 2nd third the Glenfarglas and when the lovely creamy coffee finish arrives perhaps a Dalwinnie 15yo which is of course the reverse order if conducting a malt tasting. The ash held almost to the band and billows of white smoke accompanied my all too brief encounter!

    I always keep a 5 pack of them in my humidor. A nice peppery treat for when time is short!

    Recently enjoyed a couple of these from a small pack, put in a humidor for a week or so, after receipt. A good solid 25 minute smoke, with good flavours that develop. Pricey – yes, but a great petit corona. Goes well with some British bitter (beer)! :)

    I am not the most fanatic cohiba friend,but when it comes to siglo I and robusto,I just can’t say no !!!!!
    Lovely cigar, probably the best in its size.I always keep a few in the humidor,just in case :-)

    Respectfully, i would slightly disagree with the construction and the appearance parts of the review. I have always thought all Siglos were very nicely made. I never had a concern about the draw. For me, siglo I and II are two of the greatest smokes on the market, although due to the price I don’t buy them much. There is something about these little guys that is just ….. well, awesome and makes me want more. When I want to treat myself, its always a Siglo.
