Ok... so... verdict??? I was close to picking up a few.
I might not be the best person to give a review with my limited experience, but I would say the draw was effortless and it had some nice notes of leather and pepper that were throughout the entire stick. The burn wasn’t the best, a little wavy, that got better in the last third. All in all, I did enjoy it!!!

I smoke therefore I am!
I never bothered to try out the communist maduros, anything you would compare the profile to?
Phil these are pretty interesting cigars. Unlike the Cohiba maduros which were a very dark wrapper almost black these are less so. Smoking profile on these have a slight sweetness followed by the trademark Partagas spice. I would call these a medium to full strength cigar. I've smoked through a box of these. Highly recommended, only down side is the premium price on these.

This would be an excellent after dinner cigar with either a VSOP or port. YMMV

They sounds excellent - I found the cm5 so uncharacteristic of cohiba I totally forgot I smoked a bunch of those at release until you mentioned them. Been years since I had one but i remember thinking the wrapper just wasn’t a good match for the Cohiba profile (especially at cohiba price point).

All at once? unique way to start your Friday! wait, it is Friday right??
Ever see Ah-nold with that quad launcher? It was something like that. Definitely a unique smoking experience... :p

I burned the Rat and then the Padron. The mailman came with something I've been waiting for, so I'll break into those either later tonight or tomorrow. Anyone up for a virtual herf in about six hours or so?

How was it? Thats a cool looking cigar
The few of those I have smoked lately have been good. But I am interested to hear if Chester had the same thoughts as me; I have found them to be kind of dry...not the cigar itself per-say, but its like it gives me cotton mouth or something??

That's the first one I smoked and was good, didn't notice and cotton mouth but was drinking a soda with it. Will have to pay attention next one.
