Featured Customer Reviews for CASA DE GARCIA
My daily smoke
The Casa de Garcia line has become one of my favorite all time smokes. The flavor is outstanding, even compared to much more expensive sticks. Every cigar is not a winner, but when you are paying just over a buck a stick, you dont mind toss one and grab another. I end up discarding one out of every two bundles...which isnt bad...and that is usually because it is packed too tight to draw. The flavor of the Natural or Connecticut wrapper is outstanding, and the larger the ring the smoother they get.
My Latest Daily
Ive moved through Trinidad y Cia, Riata, Rosa Cuba,Special Jamaicans and Casa Blanca now. It seems every time I find one I like, they either get discontinued or overpriced. Casa de Garcia is my latest. I prefer mild cigars over anything else and these rarely disappoint. I do the Connecticut Magnums and outside the occasional problem here and there, all has been good to great, I also added the Colossal for those longer mornings with coffee or at the pool. I hope these hang around a lot longer than some of my others. Both the Riata and Rosa Cunas have declined recently.
Great Value for the Price
Being a budget cigar smoker, I have been looking for many years for a great cheap smoke. I have tried most of what JR sells. Beyond a doubt, Casa de Garcia has the best flavor. It is not unusual to have them burn irregularly, but the flavor is as good as you get. Dave Hepple
These cigars have been my day-to-day for several years now, and Ive been generally quite pleased with them. They have been an excellent value, maybe the best value cigar in JRs line-up. Recently, however, they have changed for the worse. The wrapper is no longer light brown, but is a more medium brown color, and the flavor has changed from a sweet, spicy and mild Dominican flavor profile, to a rougher, less sweet, Honduran-type flavor. I believe that when they were first introduced that they were all Dominican. They are still a great value, but not as good as they were a couple years ago.
A great mild smoke!
As soon as I lit up my first Casa de Garcia to the moment I finished it, the mild, sweet flavor had me hooked. So I went out and ordered a couple of bundles in the 60 ring gauge size. The shipping was fast as lightning and had them on my doorstep in just two days. Im looking forward to my next order. If you like a mild cigar at a great price, I highly recommend you give these babies a shot. You wont be disappointed!
I concur with Tony G, I find 1-2 bad sticks in each bundle but these have become my evryday stick, Draw is good, I find that about 1 in 3 have a side Burn, flavor varies toward the finish, but overall they are a nice smoke. And the price is right.
For show only
I received a 7x70 as part of a sampler and believe that this size must have been made for WOW factor because it tastes terrible. Dry and bitter with tastes of burnt plastic. Glad I didnt buy a bundle.
Nice Mild Smoke!
I found these cigars to be very well constructed for the price. A flavorful smoke with a beautiful wrapper. Upon lighting, I was rewarded with a silky smooth and slightly nutty flavor. This smoke had a nice clean finish that was very pleasing to my palate. Highly recommended! I will definitely find a home for these in my humidor!
My daily smoke is the Churchill sixe.
I smoke both the natural and maduro but am leaning more towards the maduro because it hold together better. I have smoked the magnum size, but they tend to fall apart. This is the only cigar I buy and store them in a humidor that holds 250 Churchills. I like to age them at high humidity around 80. They smoke slower and cooler that way, but they are harder to keep lit. The star rating system doesnt work, but overall I rate them 5 stars, when you consider price into the rating.
Smooth, consistent, great value
I have smoked a few hundred of these, in every shape and size, focusing almost exclusively on the natural Connecticut shade wrapper, and I have never been displeased, though I consider the robusto and corona to be the most satisfying of the line. The wrapper and overall construction rivals premium cigars. These are good-looking sticks, very mild, firmly rolled but light in weight and density, resulting in a consistently smooth draw and a feathery ash. As such they are a quick burn, and some attention is required, but I have found that a few months aging will slow them down a bit and firm up the ash. The Casa de Garcia offers a mild, inoffensive and affordable alternative to budget-busting premium cigars. If you are looking for a light pre-dinner smoke or something to share with a beginner, you cannot go wrong with these.
Great bang for the buck
Very consistent mild cigar with very good construction and draw.
