"This cigar was fun to smoke. Though it may not be my favorite size, I prefer a 42-48RG, I never once felt uncomfortable smoking it. It was ever changing and kept my interest throughout. This would make a great cigar that could be enjoyed as you were day drinking. Would pair well with any type of spirit and most wines due to it flavor profile. It is a little bit of a time commitment due to it's size but well worth it. I will have to grab a few for my next beer fest or social gathering where I know I will have the time to enjoy it. " -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

"Even though this cigar was a mild/medium taste, the woody flavors had a nice balance throughout. There were flavors of oak and cherry wood with a nice campfire aroma coming from the smoke. The after-taste was not over powering and left a nice taste behind. Even though a bitter flavor showed, it did not come until almost at the end. Overall I am very pleased and would love to enjoy this one again." -Eric (smalls29)

"Nice aroma, fantastic flavors that are both complex and easily discernible - this is a very well blended and constructed cigar that I would smoke again and again and again. And again. I didn’t want to let this one end..." -Matt Cade (CADE)
While I have never smoked the original Don Lino I have seen them in catalogs etc. but I can't make any comparisons. I did enjoy this cigar but it's not in my top 5 cigars that come from Miami Cigar and Company. The creaminess at the end really brought this cigar home and I do recommend picking up a fiver at the very least.
