Got this one in a lancero/lonsdale trade on C-Bid.

Not much flavor at first, a woodsy finish. About 1" in, a nasty chemical aftertaste comes in. This is a bit comical to me, since the only other Muestra de Saka cigar I've tried had the same issue. I pitched this one pretty quick.

EDIT: I just looked up this cigar. $120+ for a box of 7? HAHAHAHA muthaf*kka please...
Those Saka cigars ain't cheap, Mark. I liked the Umbagog and a couple others that were gifted to me on another forum. Haven't had the Muestra, and sounds like I am glad? :-) :-)

I'm not surprised at this. Steve Saka has said it himself that he's not a fan of lanceros. But then he makes a lancero to please all those people asking him to do so (supposedly). The name of the cigar says it all. I like most of Saka's stuff, but I'll stay away from this one.

First up is Crafted by Casa Fernandez (7.5" x 40). I had never heard of this line, but added a bundle of 10 to an order from Serious Cigars a while back. No exaggeration, these are probably the best cigar I've smoked so far this year, including CCs. Bold but smooth, good draw/burn, lots of subtle flavor changes, no harshness or ammonia flavor even at the nub. Halfway through my second one, I ordered 4 more bundles.
Just Ordered A Bundle. Hope They're As Good As You Say, Mark!:-)

The panatelas are seconds of the La Barba Reds.

These are very good--virtually identical with the La Barba Red firsts imho.

Just try some--you can thank me later.
Site Says No Longer Available.:-)
