Russ55:The Cuba Libre isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea. I find it to have a very dry, typical corojo flavor. Very leathery, with a bit of spice, and almost nothing in the way of sweetness. The aroma is very creamy and enjoyable, and stays the same the whole way through, so yeah, not very complex, but good if you like what's there. I usually find them to be around medium strength. This is my summer time go to cheapie. Great stick, ages well too.
I've had mixed results with the CL One. I need to try it more before I decide what I think about it. It definitely has potential.
jgibv:Because I was not impressed with the flavors of this cigar. I grabbed a Magnum vitola last night, it had been sitting in my humi since last July 2011, and I'm not sure of the box date as it came in a sampler pack.
The stick burnt well, let off a ton of smoke, and lasted close to an hour but I never picked up many flavors or aromas from it.
The smoke was a bit creamy and I got mostly dull, earthy flavors the whole way through. I was expecting more from this cigar....I've enjoyed a few Cuba Libre One's and knew this wouldn't be as powerful but still was hoping for more from this stick....
Did I miss something? Has anyone other than RBeckom smoked this one?
RBeckom:I find that these cigars are for the most part better when fresh. They loose A fair amount of flavors as they age in my humble opinion.
Rain:Not going to make my own thread, but this is a review here on CCom.Absolutely exellent buy. I''ve been on a trip to cuba, and this is honestly fairly close to the quality of those delicious Cuban cigars, but for a much cheaper price. Nice full smoke, a box of 20 will last a while. 5 out of 5. - PaulKensington
