I have been smoking strictly Cubans for over 20 years, thought I would give these a try b/c I needed some 30minute smokes in my humodor. Although they are wrapped in a cheap white paper, the overall appearance is excellent. However, that is where the beauty ends. The draw was very tough, I hate to have to work a cigar, I can't enjoy that. It began very bland with some slight hints of a woody flavor, the ash cylinder was not impressive & fell off quickly, I had to relight as it got near the end, but the re-light was worth it. The last 10minutes was the best part of this cigar. Very light & I guess for a novice it's o.k. Price is right, but the substance is just not there. If you are a cigar smoker, look elsewhere.

I started smoking these little gems when I first started smoking. They are some tasty reasonable smokes. The presentation on how they are each wrapped in tissue gives this cigar quite a look. They are great for first times being I find them not that complex with a wood like flavor. These are quite enjoyable and a good buy.
The smallest of the Fonseca family, with an unusual format. Like all those bearing its name, it seems to want to be recognized not only for its presentation, Fonsecas are wrapped in a thin layer of rice paper, but also for the strange balance derived from its measures. A small cigar with big boy characteristics.
