Too strong for me. These cigars are a little harsh on the front end. I can usually get used to it but they are overwhelming to nub down! If you like a strong, leathery burn, try em. Well made cigar though - will give them that.

Outstanding quality. Solid smooth medium flavor through the whole smoke. It is now a permanent brand in my humidor. I will keep an eye out for deals on this and other Ava Maria smokes. Great draw solid burn of 1 in or longer ash. Enhances the flavor of a good porter and/ or a good sipping bourbon. Pairs well with Horse Soldier bourbon and Sweet Baby Jesus porter.

I’ve always really liked these cigars (regular Ave Maria), and have introduced them to many fellow cigar friends of mine who now are lovers of Ave Maria as well. The Divinia is my all-time favorite in the Ave Maria line, but the regular Ave Maria is really good, and at a reasonable price.

I was honestly surprised by this stick. It came in a five pack along with A five pack of the CAO Flathead 660, and I really just bought the pack because I wanted the Flatheads. I had never even heard of The Ave Maria brand before. However, these Lionheart sticks were far better in terms of construction and consistency of draw compared to the Flatheads. In terms of flavor and strength, these were very mild. Some might even say that these are flavorless. I normally like a punchier flavor in my cigars, but this mild tobacco flavor was pleasant enough and a nice change of pace. I would also note that the smoke output for these sticks was quite high, which I enjoyed. Overall, a very enjoyable smoking experience that more people should try, especially fans of box-pressed cigars. I highly recommend the Ave Maria Lionheart.

Ave Maria Lionheart. The box pressed cigar feels great to hold. Very classy. No visible blemishes. The first few puffs after lightning this somewhat petite cigar hit me hard right away. It's dynamite if I could describe its potency. At about an inch of burn, it starts to smoke smoothly. Minor burn issues but that's normal for even more expensive cigars. The ashes continued to appear grayish. Probably from the combination of different tobacco leaves it was made. The burn is slow but it still produced volumes of billowing smoke, which I like. I like it when I could gaze at the smoke ascending slowly. A great experience when smoking alone. They say a man smoking alone is never alone. Truly a wonderful companion with my favorite white wine. The flavor is complex. No hint of bitterness. I smoked it to the nub. Despite its physical shortness, my cigar lasted for an hour and a half. I highly recommend this cigar.
