Nice smoke for the price.

The Arturo Fuente Don Carlos series is my favorite cigar, but too pricey to be a regular smoke. While the flavor on this is quite nice and does share some of the qualities of the real Don Carlos, it lacks some of the sweet, nuttiness that draws me to the original. Still and excellent smoke for the price - much better than some higher priced Cameroon/Dominicans that I've tried.

Not a fave "alternative"

I think this cigar is okay and nothing special. It lacks the cameroon pop of a Fuente or Upmann cameroon or Preferidos. Hence the flavor seems sort of bland until you get past halfway. Just my take, though. I won't buy again.
