Handmade by Perdomo, so what can you expect? You can expect an expertly rolled cigar that looks, feels and tastes like it should right out of the box. From the rich texture of the wrapper to the lingering flavor of the last puff of smoke, you can be sure of the quality and consistency of these cigars. The draw is easy and the ash is tight, requiring no touch ups providing you light them correctly. These cigars are sturdy and you need to make sure they are well lit.

Genuine Pre-Embargo C.C edicion limitada 1958
Da Critta on 06/24/15
Very well made with a good draw and tight ash. Burns well and more of a full flavor than the other counterfeit cuban that I reviewed, but well made also. Taste is subjective but this is becoming a favorite that tastes better the longer its in my humidor.

Sesenta vs Black Abyss
R Sweitzer on 02/27/15
Nice sized smoke and good draw and flavor. This is a regular purchase for me and I plan to continue for it to be a regular. Must confess that Black Abyss is my favorite. Both are good but Black Abyss by a nose.
Let them age and you'll be a happy camper.

I bought a box of these cigars this past October after reading some good reviews. I let them sit in my humidor for a week before smoking my first. Evidently a week was not long enough. I wasn't too enthusiastic about the experience but knew that I should let them age a little before really giving it a review. Today I pulled one out and lit it up. Wow! What a difference. Time is a good thing with this cigar. I really enjoyed the balanced taste, very smooth. I've been looking for a cigar that satisfies both in taste and construction. I can't spend $$ every time I want a good smoke and for the price these are excellent. I will be buying another box once these are gone.
Like smoking a flounder

I bought a 5-pack, just to give them a try. After a few weeks in my humidor I smoked one. The smoke tastes very salty to me for some reason. Perhaps that is what a Cuban cigar tastes like, as these are advertised to be very close to what a Cuban is like. Maybe when paired with the right scotch it would be perfect but on its own it isn't for me. I will let the other 4 sit for a while and then give it another try. They are very well built and I had no trouble with the wrapper splitting.

A Solid Smoke-Update
fatcat on 06/03/16
This cigar has become one of my "go-to" sticks. Earlier they had some construction problems (loose wrappers) which seem to have been fixed with recent purchases. Flavor has always been top-notch for me. I always give them a few days in the humidor but I could smoke them right out of the box. Burn is medium slow and I have seldom hit a hard spot. For the money they are tops. I would spend more for these.
One year update
Da Critta on 05/17/16
Ok, its been one year and I gotta say these are one of my regular "good ones". I just got done smoking a premium cigar that I had to dispose of after it unravelled to the point of being unsmokable and I reached for my Pre-Embargo (ELSE25). Comparing the two, I had to give an update: The draw is easy and the taste is strong. The construction is great and stays lit with a long ash that falls at about one inch, sometimes longer. Im buying another box or two instead of the premiums that were twice as expensive and were a headache.
Excellent First Impression!

I had my first 1958 Sesenta (6 × 60) a couple days ago at a casino bar playing video poker, and I am looking forward to more. This big boy lasted 2 hours or so and delivered a fine maduro smoke all the way to a short nub. Many cigars start getting nasty toward the end, but not this one. I also got some 1958 Maximo's (6 × 50) and am anxious to try one of those.
I THINK I'M IN CUBA
"SeaWolf" on 02/21/16
A really good cigar. I've had my share of good cigars and let me tell you my friends, this is a really good cigar. My cigar experience started about 10 years ago while in the military. So, I had $1 sticks up to $35 sticks. Not including the sticks I acquired while at Guantanamo Bay. Again, my friends, this is a really good cigar. I rated it as a mild full flavor smoke. Yes, it's well constructed, burns well, & the flavor changes a bit between 3rds, etc....Try it.
Terrible Cheap Bad Tasting Cigar
Mastdog on 02/19/16
This is a cheap cigar, in both flavor and construction. I am very upset I paid so much for the 5 pack and I am upset because I read the reviews and thought I had found a gem...well I didn't. The cigar has that cheap paper taste you get from machine cigars and leaves a terrible taste in your mouth (this is the criteria for me vs a good cigar). I don't how else to explain it other than it is just not that good. If they are on sale for around 10 bucks, sure! But at the 18 dollar price, this is a total rip off. These cigars are not good AT ALL. I would avoid at all cost at this price
