"Overall I enjoyed this cigar. The transition from dry and earth to bakers spice and bread notes was a pleasant surprise. The lemon zest on the finish definitely added to the overall experience " -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
"While I typically do not prefer cigars that are "one dimensional", I do appreciate ones that have minimal transitions, with outstanding representations of the flavors that are there. This is one of those cigars. My only complaint is this was a relatively fast burner. It was one that I wished I had a toro version of, cause I wasn't ready to be done when the nub got to hot to hold! " -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

“I really enjoyed this cigar. Even though it was a bit one dimensional, it had very good flavors and it’s size made for a nice quick smoke. I would definitely smoke another one of these if I was given an opportunity.” –Alan (Eulogy)

Royal Jamaica Cigars are back, and now as a Casa de Montecristo made by Abe Flores of PDR Cigars. The brand was started in 1935 by James Frederick Gore. Post-Cuban embargo the brand saw a lift and was very popular until 1988 when Hurricane Gilbert caused more than $700 million in damages including to tobacco crops and infrastructure.
This was an excellent cigar. I have never come across a PDR that I didn't enjoy, but this one was among the best. I could also sense in it great aging potential and I believe time will only bring out more of the spice and coffee bean I detected in pre-light. These will not be around long, and I would advise against hesitation on purchasing some of these, as they will not lost long. I remember debating on pulling the trigger on a box of these when they were available years ago, and now regret not buying it even more. Buy a box of these, you will not be sorry.

“It started out with some spice and then transitioned more into the nutmeg and all spice. The final third mellowed out. The strength did pick up as the cigar went on.” -Ashley

"Even though I found this cigar lacking a wow factor, the flavors were solid. Defined transitions between the thirds held my interest. I wouldn't grab this one for a special occasion although I would gladly smoke one again." -Gregg (McGreggor57)
