I've been wondering of these were as bad as people thought and wanted to give one a try... until your review.

Hah... I remember thinking this "stick" was OK when Darrell hit me with one. Yet, slowly but surely it started to suck and get acrid. Yet, I think people should take at least one puff. If anything; these dog-rockets make you appreciate all smokes. Even the so-so ones.

OK...I just had one of these nastys this weekend. Dan sent it to me blind and said he'd tell me what it was after I smoked it.

So. I looked at the cigar pre cutting. Not a triple cap...not a CC. Decently constructed and very light color. Not a whole lot of scent to it. Cut cleanly with my Palio. Fist draws prelite were fairly bland...not much flavor at all.

So after lighting it, I am bombarded with underfermented and grassy nastiness. The flavor was horrible. It was one of the worst, if not the worst cigars I've ever had. I decided to give it a go and hope that it would get better. Nope. Not at all. The flavor was purely rancid to me. Like I said...underfermented and like grass and hay. YUCK!!! I smoked between 1/3 and 1/2 of it before I had to pitch it. I didn't want to destroy my taste bud permanently.

So in closing thanks but no thanks Dan for giving me the opportunity (!?!?!?!?!?!) to tryone of these legends (of ill repute).

I bought a 5'er of these off of Hardcz. That was a mistake. The cigar smelled like dog feces, and the taste was just as bad. Stay far away from these pieces of s***. I will bomb some people on here with the remaining 4, so watch out.

You guys hit the nail on the head with these turds. For the first 1/2 inch you're thinking, these aren't THAT bad or they could be worse...

and that's when it happens. They get worse, much much worse.


Dan brought a bunch of them to our monthy herf in Rochester, MI. That's where SAM's avatar pic was taken, about when his Cremosa hit the 1/2 in point. We all pitched them at the same time.

The only thing worse than that Cremosa was the aroma from the Cherry bomb he lit up later. He just about cleared the room with that stench. We actually made him put it out.

Finally smoking one of these. Bobarian 'kindly' (notice the quotes) gifted me TWO of these, churchills no less. Its funny because, like the OP, it didn't start out so bad. The first few puffs I was thinking, "this is not good....but its not that bad". But slowly the bad flavor builds in your mouth. I was thinking "you should keep smoking to give it a fair shake." But then I kept noticing this bad flavor in my mouth building. And I want to put the cigar down, but like a bad movie, you sometimes want to see how bad it will get. Oh well, 3/4 of an inch is all I can stomach. Maybe I didn't get to the 'absolutely wretched' point, but at least I can say I have experienced all that is "CREMOSA".

Yep. The first 0.5 inch wasn't bad, then it was horrible

They are definitely an "experience". This weekend at the Barn herf I witnessed one of the most heroic feats of smoking I have ever seen. Bonjing(Greg) manned up big time and smoked one past the band!
