"The beginning notes of vanilla, raisin, roasted coffee, and leather and how it transitioned from the first to the second third really kept my interest. Packed full of flavors. The burn and draw were perfections. This is a cigar I would definitely try again and recommend to any cigar Smoker. Very well done overall. " -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
"This was a wonderful experience. The flavors were nice and constant and never strayed in to bitterness and yuck. The cedar flavor was there from begging to end. The best part was the slightly sweet taste left on the palate. The aroma was that of a cedar log burning in the fireplace that made this one even more enjoyable. Definitely one for the humidor. " -Eric (smalls29)
"If you are looking for a powerhouse cigar that offers sweet undertones and a smooth, crisp retrohale, this is for you. Definitely not for the weak at heart. This cigar is everything a smoker who enjoys full flavored smokes could ask for. Ready to smoke right when I got it, this cigar needs little rest to allow it to fully mature into an after dinner delight. Definitely grab some of these if you want to challenge your palate to a fistfight full of potential and destruction. Excellent cigar." -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

"With its mild strength and bold flavors, I would not be surprised if this is a La Aurora cigar. This is one of those cigars that can be enjoyed by anyone as it's not too strong for the beginner, but complex enough to satisfy the aficionado. The technical performance was outstanding with no burn or draw issues, in fact the ash held on almost two inches. I would describe the flavor profile as classic. This one was a winner." -Emmett (rhetorik)
"This is a cigar I really want to buy several boxes of. From start to finish it was a winner. Flavors were on point and complex. Construction was impeccable. I'd give this an 'Extraordinary'. Definitely multi box worthy." -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
What began in 2013 as a test blend marketed at cigar shops in New Mexico, Texas and Maryland, KILO was a labor of love for Barry Stein and was originally made at La Aurora in the Dominican Republic. Originally the Director of Social Media for Miami Cigar & Company, he parted ways with them in the spring of 2014 when he relocated to New Hampshire to work for David Garofalo. As a parting gift for his service to the company, they allowed him to keep the trademark KILO.
"This ranks up there with one of the better blind cigars I've smoked. The coffee, leather and baking spices were perfectly balanced and changed up enough to keep it interesting. The added spice from time to time was appreciated as was the toast and char that showed up near the end. I would definitely grab more of these to enjoy." -Gregg (McGreggor57)
