    Appearance : [rating:4/5]
    The Tabacos Baez SF robusto is a well made cigar. A bit softer than normal. I suspect it is because of the use of short filler as well as long filler to the cigar. The ash is great, although I have never paid much attention to such things. Ash is the waste product of a cigar, as far as I’m concerned.

    Construction : [rating:4/5]
    The wrapper is smoother with a few veins. Nothing noticeable. I have had a toothy one every now and again, but it’s never affected the burn. No touch ups on the couple cigars I used for this review were necessary. The wrapper is a Nicaraguan Habano, and I think there is a double wound cap. Draw is quite easy. The cigar does burn a bit quicker than what I would consider normal, but does not get hot.

    Flavor : [rating:5/5]
    The cigar smells of sweet tobacco at the foot and has a nice rich peppery scent at the head. Lighting up reveals a wonderful sweet peppery flavor that was hinted at in the foot. There is also a creamy, cocoa flavor that weaves itself into the smoke. The second third or so proceeds much as the first, with a hint of cedar coming through too. The cigar builds in strength as it finishes the second third, still remaining in the medium body category. The final third finishes well, with a long, smooth flavor. Hints of coffee come through here, but mostly its just spice, cream and pepper. Clearly, not the most complex cigar, but the flavors were excellent despite that.

    Value : [rating:5/5]
    I’ve seen this cigar ranging from $2.00 to $3.50; two dollars being the box prices. At two dollars a stick, this cigar kicks butt! It’s full of flavor and has never disappointed me. Short filler or not, this is a cigar that will stand up to any “value priced” cigar and come out a winner!

      I always have the Tabacos Baez Serie S F in my humidor. At about $2.30 per stick retail or online this cigar compares to any $5 stick you may find. Despite being a short filler in construction the flavors of the more expensive big brothers branded My Father are certainly there. But don’t buy too many, leave more for me, many more.

      Nice aroma, straight burn, sweet flavor. Tremendous value!! Very nice with rum or your favorite whiskey. Marries nicely with bourbon. A relaxing experience. I enjoyed this cigar better than alot of boutique offerings.

      I really dig this smoke also. Very consistent in flavor and construction, through the whole box. The price is just right for an every day smoke. No complaints here.

      Love this smoke in the corona gorda size. Not complex, but well made and consistent with solid flavors. Great value.
