I really enjoy these cigars for a few reasons. They are mild in taste and smoke great. It has a nice slow, even burn and generates a lot of nice thick creamy smoke. I have smoked enough of these now to say that they are pretty consistent. I did have one that wouldn’t draw but you can run into that once and a while with any brand. This isn’t a top of the line cigar but it is a good quality smoke especially when you take its price tag into consideration. These robustos come in around $2 a stick retail, lower if you nab a box off of Cigarbid. That makes it a great cigar for the price conscious like me. They have a nice mellow flavor that doesn’t hang around past its welcome. If you are looking for a quality cheap smoke on the mild side I recommend these cigars.

I had never had a Rocky Patel cigar before and was interested in trying one. The description of it included a dark wrapper with flavors of coffee and mocha. In fact Rocky Patel says that the wrapper is "gently infused" with Java. I prefer maduro cigars so I thought I'd try one.

I initially planned to review another petit corona, but (I am getting used to it...) my local B&M ran out of those and I ended up buying a few VegaFina Short Coronas, since they were cheap and reminded me of my good experiences with the Robusto. Back home, I went to the Altadis website to get some more information about this stick and I was quite surprised to see that it was not even there and the cigars listed definitely had a brighter wrapper shade. After some research, I found out that indeed the cigars sold in Europe are completely different: instead of an Ecuadorian claro wrapper, a maduro oscuro from Brazil is used and the filler is Dominican/Peruvian (vs Columbian/Dominican/Honduran in the US). However, both cigars are hecho a mano in la Tabacalera de Garcia in the Dominican Republic.

Camacho Havana H2 is one fat and powerful smoke. It's not as kick-a$$ as the Camacho Corojo Monarca, but they still are quite full-bodied. Regular cedary and spicy flavors make it a nice 40-minutes short smoke.

RASS a.k.a Ramon Allones Specially Selected being one of my all-time favorite Cuban cigars, my expectations concerning its little brother were high. Perhaps I was unlucky, but unfortunately the Ramon Allones Small Club Coronas was far behind it. Please note that I didn't smoke a whole box of these and this review is based on 4 cigars.

Camacho Corojo Monarca must be one of the most full-bodied cigars that I ever smoked. Its power is simply overwhelming, this toy might easily knock you down. Fine construction most of the time and the looks are also satisfying. A decent cigar overall.

Padron 2000 must be my favorite everyday cigar. What I especially appreciate is its consistency - I am always getting a good draw, a regular burn, and a nice (although not too complex) pack of flavors. And impressive clouds of smoke that make me look like a 'goodfella'...
