Room 101 San Andres

I have gone through several pages looking for any reviews or thoughts on this cigar and don't see any. So I was wondering if anyone here has tried this one yet and if you have any thoughts on it.

    Mike, Tried one this weekend. In my estimation more similar to the Namakubi than the regular 101. It was smooth and creamy with hint of meidum spice. I enjoyed it and will be purchasing some more.

    you, my friend, are too generous... I was looking through mt Humi the other day and found one last Alec Bradley that irish and I were supposed to review and never got around to...I appreciate it Mike, but you don't need to do that... I'm out of OSOK's so I may place an order for some of them and add some SA's to it...

    What were you expecting from it? The Fonseca Vintage is OK have you had the Fonseca 120th Anniversary yet?

    I had the 101 SA Maduro last night in a robusto size. I felt the first third to almost half to be very bitter. The second half however really openned up and and the flavor totally took a 180. Almost what I would call a cinnamon taste to the finish. Hope that helps.

    I tried one on Friday at my B&M. I was excited about it and was waiting for them to come in. I like all of their line, and had high hopes. That being said, I was somewhat unimpressed. It was good, but I thought I would totally love it. The first 1/3 didn't do really anything for me other than the spice which I really liked in the first few draws. Into the second third it began to develop a bit for me, and I got about 5-7 puffs which I thought were amazing. These were interspersed with some "meh" draws. I don't recall things changing much in the last third, so I probably had the same few good puffs in between being a bit bored. I had already had a cigar before this one, and likely something pretty strong although I can't remember what it was. So I blame my palate not being fresh. I picked up 2 more and will give them a shot on a fresh palate. Despite my somewhat negative review, I still feel it is a solid stick for the price.

    I smoked a 5x50 as soon as the B+M put them on the shelves. It was a great little stick. Burn time was probably just over an hour to an hour and half. I have a few more resting and can probably do a more complete review next time I smoke one. I didn't have any of the issues that you guys have mentioned. It was a smooth smoke the entire way with a nice razor burn. I nubbed the thing until my fingers almost lit on fire. IMHO I would give them another shot. Maybe change the vitola?
