i am very pleased and enjoy this product the cigars are fresh --i also appreciate the quick handling -- shipping of this product--there is no doubt that jr cigars is tops in quality and timely shipping thank you
An excellent cigar
By far one of my favorite cigars to smoke. This cigar always pleases me, with its elegant draw as well as its excellent taste. Personally I would recommend this to anyone starting to explore the world of cigars. Also the aroma left by this cigar is excellent.
Strong all around
Strong flavor all the way through. Final third got very strong. The start has strong hints of spice, and it mellows out toward the second third. Final third flavor picks up big time and the spices hit again. Nice draw, zero wrapper issues. Even burn all the way through with no touch ups needed.
Great little cigars!
Macanudo is, in my mind, on the list of cigars that everyone should try at least one of. They always have good, cool burning flavor and are perfect for the new person just starting out or the experienced enthusiasts looking for a break from the full bodied butt-kickers.
not so great
I have smoked a few of these and haven't enjoyed them. They seem to have a bitter taste, not very pleasant. From what I smoked it seems like the wrapper falls apart fairly easily as well. I wouldn't recommend these or buy any again. Nothing against the brand, they do make side good ones. Sure ascots are cheap, but the quality isn't there.

Not as good as they used to be, cheaper made!

Some draw easily others you can hardly draw. Mouth piece is short one wrap unlike the earlier years that had a better mouth piece. Very expensive for what you get. Buck fifty for a 20 minute cigar? Quality seams to ave deteriated!

Has a very nice and even draw. Big boughs of creamy white smoke. Construction is good, started canoeing a bit but was able to control it. Flavors of toast, a slight hint of vanilla with cedar undertones make this quite enjoyable.
Good for a short drive

Great with a light roast coffee, it can be a little firm on the draw, but it's a great cigarillo for the morning commute. I used to keep a tin of these in reach all the time when I was stationed in Pearl.
not for the aficionado

The cigar is perfect for guys who like smoking cigars who know nothing about cigars. Generic bland but at least it doesn't taste like grass or horse poop. It's mild and strength smoothie flavor is perfect for the amateur just wants to enjoy a stick on the course or out with his buds every once in a while,
3.5 star cigar

The macanudo is a decent cigar. The flavor is pretty mild to medium. It has a great construction and has a good draw. I actually like the construction of this cigar. I would prefer a cigar with a little more flavor. For the low price it is a decent cigar. Very good ash on it as well

Smoke a few of these... Too mild for my liking. The larger format Macanudo cigars are a good mild change of pace but the flavor just was not there with the Ascots for me. I will stick with the bigger sizes on this blend...
Good for the beginner
Ezlvn33@aol.com on 06/13/15
To myself all in all this is a very consistent smoke . Mild to medium in strength . With a consistent good draw . Well constructed and even burn .. tends to burn alittle hot and gets a little bitter on the last third. Good gar for those that don't like a full flavor cigar
jimmyjimjames on 06/12/15
I used to like macanudo cigars, but for the last couple of years they seem to be declining in quality. I will say, I much prefer the macanudo Maduros to lighter wrappers, but this is ok. It has a tight yet smooth draw and a consistent burn. Overall, not a bad cigar, just not my favorite.
Mattran71 on 06/11/15
Exquisite taste is one thing about this remarkable cigar and the cigar brand as a whole. One reason I purchased this cigar and the cigar brand was to try a new cigar I have never smoked before. By far a reasonable price for such a spectacular cigar!!
Good for the money
dwebb on 06/12/15
This is a decent mild cigar. Although it was mild it was very smooth which I prefer for the less common times I smoke in the morning. It burned fast but cool. It was somewhat sweet and enjoyable. Not my first choice for a quickie but you should definitely have a few on hand due to the value.
red1 on 06/12/15
This is a good smoke for the price. It's mild but isn't bland. If you're a serious cigar fan you most likely prefer complex flavors. This is not the cigar for you. You should have this cigar in your humidor though. We all have those moocher friends. This is a respectable puffer for a novice so you can hand these out and save those 90+ rated nicas for those that will appreciate them.

Wow love my cigars mike and mellow and doesn't the ascot deliver. Well constructed, smoke draw and I swear to you I could smoke one after the other all day long and each puff would be exactly like the last. I gues that is why they are the best God love the Mac
Macanudo not worth your time or money!
Jec2k on 06/22/15
I don't like this cigar or any macanudo for that matter. There are so many more cigars at similar price points that are so much more well constructed and don't fall apart and taste terrible. If I were to be given one I'd give it to someone else to smoke.
New to me!!
Rpenfour on 06/18/15
Great cigar. I'm new to the cigar world, but I'm enjoying these. I would recommend this cigar to anyone who is just starting out. Not a real harsh flavor, very enjoyable, nice even burn and a great buy. I will certainly put these on my keep list.
Excellent first timer stick
Cigarmedic on 06/08/15
It was an overall pleasing smoke on a par with what I expect with Macanudo theese are a cigar I would start someone off with to learn. Not overly mild but you know your smoking a cigar . Started a bit peppery but mellowed out quickly to mild earthy muted tones. I would definitely keep this blend around in my humidor for newbies and when I want something milder and lighter
A great smoke
Crazyleggs1 on 06/14/15
This Cigar is a great addition to any humidor and any collection.They have a great draw and Taste is very consistent throught out the whole smoking cigar.@ It is exactly what you would expect from a brand that we all have grown to expect quality stick after stick and these do not disappoint.I bought a few of these from a local brick and mortar and passed out to friends after dinner and got the same response from everyone that they were great smoke and we usually smoke cohiba,uppman,Romeos and Olivas just to make a few and these fit right in with draw,construction,and taste through out.

Fairly good stick. Budget some time for this one as it is not a short smoke. Flavors of wheat, shortbread, toast and coffee. Strength and body are at a medium for me. The construction was good, but not perfect. Overall a solid cigar.
Macanudo ascots are right for me
Thesmokingbandit on 06/14/15
I'm not big on big cigars but a nice smooth ascot sure hits the spot. Tried many cigars and settled with Macanudo ascots. Shipping price is good and delivery is fast. Customer service is prompt and no issues go unnoticed. Also, the moisture sealed tins are the ones that are too tight to smoke. Always get the cellophane wrapped tins that allow to breath.
Consistent, mild cigar
Smittyz on 06/09/15
The Macanudo is always a pleasant experience. If you're a fan of mild cigars, you can't go wrong here. They are consistently well constructed and the flavor is the same every time. I prefer to smoke a Macanudo early in the day paired with coffee and cream.

The Ascot is a great cigar. For me it's a bit on the expensive side for an everyday stick, but worth it if you like a smooth smoke that isn't too heavy. I smoke a Chateau Fuente As my daily, so this is a great alternative.
Great for the price
ThePrince on 06/09/15
It's prime cigar it's well worth the cost it not the .99 cent cigar you get at the gas station. Well worth the money highly recommends getting. The price is not to high and if your are thinking about triing them pull the trigger. H. H
Good value, tight draw, smooth and creamy
Afoltz92 on 06/09/15
Not a bad short smoke, the long filler is smooth and creamy, but it had some very definite draw issues. The burn was straight, and the length is perfect for the morning commute, and it goes great with a cup of coffee, but it's too easy to overpower it's taste
mrsritchie8893 on 06/08/15
This is a pretty good cigar not one of my favorites but still pretty good it's taste is good not the best though if your looking for something a little more this is the cigar for you not to expensive but not the greatest cigar either I smoke them when working to pass time cause it takes a while to smoke them I will definitely buy more in the future hope yall also liked thus cigar
jgsmoke on 06/08/15
This is a little thirty minute cigar. It is very mil like many cometicut wrapper sticks. If thats what you are into check it out. A good way to pass the time. It is also very afordable if you are on a budget. Also good to smoke in the car On a road trip.
Stronger than you'd think
Slow burn on 06/14/15
Being an enthusiast of darker cigars, I assumed that the flavor of his one would be a little light. Not so at all. This cigar tastes much darker and heavier. The draw was more resistant than I would have expected, which did lead to some unexpectedly strong draws and some coughing.
Good go to smoke
Jsdphilly on 06/13/15
I always have some magnetos in my humidor because they are nice to get out to people who are only the occasional smoker. The flavor and builder pretty good my experience of flavors are not that complex but it is a good go to cigar if I'm out fishing on the boat golfing on Saturday morning or just anything where I'm going to be preoccupied but still want to smoke a stick
Sanakin on 06/05/15
I have yet to have a "good" Macanudo. Nothing but brand hype unfortunately. This cigar is no different. I got it from my local BnM and let it rest in my humidor for 2 weeks. Burn was wonky. Flavor was just leather. Zero complexity. It just wasn't worth the price point.
Bowie cigar lover on 06/27/15
I have never had a bad macanudo. I do enjoy the ascot but my favorite are the prince Phillip and the duke of whales. Wifes really enjoys the aroma and has brought me these on more than one occasion as a hint.
Acasualcow on 06/13/15
The macanudo mascot...what a cigar. A friend picked this up for me and told me he got it for a decent price so I told him I would smoke it and let him know what I thought. Well, it was a decent cigar...just not really up my alley. Construction wise it was perfect.
