A first time poster will come around to give them a glowing review sometime in the next 2 to 9 months.

Its a reliable prediction that Im guessing aligns with a cruise ship travel season.

They do exist and they are tasty. I pick some up every time we cruise through Roatan.

Does the OP get a weirdest thread prize? The ones my Mom brought back were reasonably good, cheap stogies.

Well, you guys almost have me too scared to post!
I'm flying into Roatan in a few days and was going to try one of these (or maybe more). Are the piers for the cruise lines close to the airport? I see some piers in google maps sort of west, but they may not be for cruise lines. Can anyone get access to this guy, or is it only for people getting on or off a cruise ship? Do you know if the piers are walking distance from the airport? Kind of looks like a couple of kilometers.
Thx

I never did get a response to my emails.
I did go to Roatan. While I found the cruise ships dock next to the ferry terminal, I never did go see if this guy was still there selling cigars. I did see some of the worst fake bands on Cohibas though. No gold on the label, the yellow was actually greenish and the printing around the face was badly off center.

Sadly Moncada cigars are still illusive unicorns.

OK, I'll bite. And, yes, this is my very first post to this forum.

I bought this stick at the cigar stand in the tourist (cruise ship) village on Roatan, Honduras. The stand was manned by a young lad who spoke very good English, and his "mother", reportedly the cigar roller, who apparently spoke none. They were selling several sizes in boxes and bundles, and had a number of loose irregulars that they were selling by the stick. I grabbed a handful of these, thinking, "what the heck."

The first one I smoked was roughly a toro in size (~6x52), and had a nice, medium brown, silky wrapper (the young lad at the stand called it an "oscuro", but it was not nearly dark enough to attain that standard), and a short, torpedo-like cap. Construction looked and felt superb, with a consistently firm body (no soft spots), very light veining, and flawless wrapper and cap. The foot appeared evenly and tightly packed.

I cut the cap about half way along the torpedo shape to get the draw I like, and toasted the foot. I'm not the guy to go to for flavor notes and nuances. I would consider this a medium bodied smoke with pleasant, mellow flavor, even on the retro-hale. Nothing too spicy, peppery or harsh.

The ash built up light and flaky, and I could only accumulate about 3/4-inch before it fell off the stick. Ample smoke was generated while actively smoking, and it dropped quickly to a very slow smolder on the rest.

The burn line was a little jagged, but otherwise even. Certainly nothing close to requiring any corrections.

The mild flavor(s?) held steady to the end. More mild than I tend to gravitate toward, but very pleasant nonetheless. I usually pair my smokes with a good whisky(ey), but smoked this one with a cup of hot chamomile tea. I would definitely recommend drinking something that will leave your taste buds intact to get the most out of this cigar.

As others have noted, this is a really good, inexpensive (if you don't include the cost of travel) cigar. No regrets.
