Nostalgia cannot cloud the facts.

I purchased the Metropolitan Maduro Metropolitans. With all due respect to the other reviewers, I must respectfully disagree. For the money, as a premium cigar, these cigars are quite mediocre hence 3 stars across the board. Their construction is somewhat less than one might expect from a premium cigar with numerous inconsistencies and not representative of what I have known of the Sherman brand. Likewise, their flavor lacks the body and complexity that one has come to expect from a higher-end maduro. I don't have to go to a Nat Sherman to cultivate a "chalky mouth" as it were. I can get that from a cigar less than 1/2 the price. Again, the consistency of the smoke was quite lacking. Inconsistent burn, quick outage and the need for constant relights if not carefully and deliberately smoked. This all adds up to an homage to mediocrity. As a lifetime fan of Nat Sherman cigars, all the way back to over a quarter century ago when I would peruse their NYC smoke shop for a smoker's treat this is particularly disappointing. Perhaps it is true that as brands become more ubiquitous and their label grows , their quality diminishes ? I don't know for sure. What I do know is that regardless of my love for the Nat Sherman brand, I have to be objective about the cigar in front of me. Nostalgia cannot cloud the facts.

All of the Nat Sherman cigars I have ever purchased have been outstanding. I have tried others but always come back to the Nat Sherman's. They are the most consistent cigar I have ever smoked. I smoke them only on special occasions when I can sit and enjoy them with my cocktail.

This cigar is OK, but for the money it isn't up to par. The draw is very good and the construction is fine. The problem is it lacks depth and the after taste is metallic especially at first. The cigars vary a little, with some better than others; but a few in the box tasted like aluminum foil on the first few puffs. They mellow out as you smoke them, but I'd say this is not even close to a true premium cigar.
