Once lit, the Los Estoico's Habano wrapper delivered mild to medium flavors that weren't disappointing but weren't overly impressive either. In the first third, there was a hint of something spicy, but also flavors that were creamy and smooth.

Through the middle of the Peter James Los Estoico 54 Habano, I experienced an uneven burn tied directly to the stem I noticed at the very beginning. There was also an odd green part of the leaf that looked like paint or dye, and I never figured out what that was.

I got to spend 75 minutes with the Peter James Los Estoico 54 Habano. In the final third, the flavors weren't as good as they were in the first half, and I found the cigar to be a little boring.
While I found the cigar to be mostly “eh” on the flavor side, that's pretty subjective, as is the price point. And although I had to retouch the cigar to even up a bad burn, that was a minor thing.
Overall the Peter James Los Estoico 54 Habano earns a CigarScore 4.
