Overall very good
Rich B. on 06/20/15
When these first came out, they were consistently excellent, not only for the price, but in their own right as a cigar. They haven't been quite as good lately. As many have noted, the draw is somewhat tight. Not only does this take much of the relaxation out of the smoke, but it also tends to interfere with the taste, diminishing the amount of smoke entering the mouth while heating the cigar up a bit too much. It's not so bad as to be a deal-breaker, but just a little extra quality control at the factory and this cigar could return to where it was before. Before the cigar boom, when I was a new cigar smoker, I used to smoke mostly Arturo Fuente Privada #1, which I bought from a JR outlet at about $35.00/box, tax included. Those days are gone for good, so over the years, I've looked for substitutes, mostly in vain. Then I found Casa de Garcia, which isn't quite as much enjoyment as a Fuente, and Ashton, or an RyJ, but about 75% of the enjoyment when their at their best, for a tiny fraction of the price. I'll take it.

Quality Cigar for the Price
Larry Peoples, Sr on 10/01/15
I thought I had ordered the Natural CDG again, but I found that I had ordered the Madura's. But I'm glad I did. The taste is outstanding. No throat burn like I've had with some other Maduro brands. The draw is a little bit tight, but I've found that spiking instead of cutting this cigar reduces that. Overall a quality cigar for the price. I'll come back to CDG Maduro's again.
corona and robusto

cdg maduro is my go to smoke. i prefer the corona and robusto. using a draw poker solved the hard draw problem quite nicely. tried several other brands in this price range, and have been more than satisfied with cdg.

Better than some 'so called' premium cigars on the mkt. Great flavor & burn, lots of smoke. The mads are occasionally 'gritty' on the tip. I would give the 'edge' to the natural wrapper but both are excellent cigars for the $ or not.
