Product Review (submitted on October 2, 2012):
Intrigued that George Burns, the comedian, smoked El Producto for over 80 years I decided to experience this machine made cigar for myself.....and I was not disappointed.
Out of the wrapper, I was welcomed by a mild tobacco leaf aroma. Its feel was of substance without sponginess. And it delivers a mild sweet taste to my palate. It lights quickly and evenly and yields a steady burn with a consistent ash of 1 to 2 inches. It's draw is easy as a sigh in an easy chair . Flavor is very mild and leafy. I like this because it compliments what ever beverage I choose to drink. The smoke is significant and does not require constant re-lighting, which are reasons Mr. Burns selected this cigar. For me, I like this cigar for all of the above, but mostly because my wife likes the mild non- overpowering cigar aroma that lingers in the air and the very faint hint of cigar on my beard. The 2 things that distract from the overall enjoyment are the increasing heat towards the last 1 inch and some unraveling in the mouth from moisture. There are other cigars that are just as smooth and have wonderful taste, but with this cigar I can boast, "this was George Burns favorite cigar", and immediately, others are intrigued and are willing to try a cigar.....sometimes for the first time.
