This is just a solid cuban cigar. Perfect size, outstanding flavor profile, smokable anytime, and great construction. These age really well, and if you can find a box for around $6.00 a stick its a must have. While not my favorite cuban cigar, its one that I frequently enjoy and keep in the smoking rotation. The strength is medium, but holds up either during the day or at night. I would not smoke these with breakfast, and they are rich, but certainly not overpowering.
