cookie cutter wal mart cigar
This is cigar you see all of Kentucky during special events. Derby is most prominent and these cigars are all over the infield. Honestly I despise these cigars. Always a smooth wrapper and decent draw but lacks any flavor beyond a cedary sweet. Too expensive for what you get.
This one is consistently mediocre. It's just overly flavored and never complex or exciting. It's consistent throughout, I'll give it that. I wouldn't smoke it again. There's enough out there for me to pas on this one again
High hopes that didn't deliver.

I had high hopes for these as I love makers mark. Cold draw was nice but as soon as I lit it Up it became bitter and very hot. Flavors were not there and split once I got halfway through it.

This cigar seems more like a novelty. Thought the flavor of the bourbon can be tasted it doesn't mix well with the other flavors and seems to not blend well. The higher price point for this is not worth it in my opinion
Damn good smoke

I had one of these for one of my first couple of cigars. Let me tell you it was delicious. Yes that's right I said delicious. I like bourbon just as much as any other southerner so I decided to give it a go. Man was it good. I think I will order a few singles soon.
Not worth the hype

Well I gotta say I was expecting more from this cigar the burn was uneven at times and tunneled at others and from a flavor stand point it left much to be desired could have bought a cheep cigar and dipped it in bourbon and got a better result
Good not great
Jsdphilly on 06/22/15
I got one of these cigars from a friend recently. I can't say that I really enjoyed it all that much. Well it was a good smoke that I would be happy to partake in from time to time it is not likely one that I will be stocking in my humidor anytime soon
Must love Maker's Mark
Welkington on 06/19/15
I like Maker's Mark but having a cigar that tastes like it was too much for me. It's a little pricey as well but constructed well and smoked just fine. If you're a big time Maker's Mark person then it's is right up your alley.

This was a good cigar. I feel that it is a little over priced and that you are mainly paying for the Makers Mark name. I would say that there are other comparable cigars that you can get for the same price.
it has panache.
MiggieSmalls on 06/25/15
I didn't buy this, my friend got it for me. He knows I love Maker's, I signed up to be a brand ambassador as soon as I turned 21, but for me the cigar seemed to fall flat of the bourbon. It didn't pair well with the liquid and I felt that the whole thing was kind of gimmicky. Burned ok only a few touch ups needed.
Made a mark on me

This was a present from a great friend of mine and let me tell you it may seem like a gimmick but it's not the Dominican tobaccos put this cigar in a mild category producing natural notes of hay cream and cocoa and the bourbon infusion leaves that whisky taste on your palate and when paired with the liquor of the same name an explosion of bourbon and fine tobacco greets your plate and a smoky whisky aroma fills the air
Wow. Great Smoke. Great flavor
Richburris66 on 07/02/15
I love cigars with a whiskey flavor. This one doesn't fall short of the mark. Pun intended. It is a little pricey but it is well worth the money. It has a great flavoring and you can taste the Makers Mark especially on the finish. I recommend this highly if you can afford it.

I'm not a huge fan of infused cigars but this one was grear. The MM is perfectly blended into the stick. It's not overly sweet like many other infused cigars. While it's not an everyday stick for me, it's one to keep in my box for special nights.
A more expensive gas station stick
Solby on 06/29/15
This one is a one trick pony. It's not horrible but it's not good either. It has that plain papery tobacco flavor with a hint of sweetness from the makers mark infusion. Prelight was tobacco flavor, smell was unassuming on both the stick and foot. First third thru to the end was all one flavor. Tabacco with a little bit of cardboard and leather. It heats up at about the midway point and get a bit acrid because of it. Overall not really worthy of a step by step review. If you are transitioning from gas station sticks to real sticks this might be the step in between. I would reccomend any other number of good sticks before this, such as AF, rocky patel, or maybe some cracker crumbs.
Very good taste, would like to smoke more of these.

I have smoked one of these that my wife bought me. I was surprised by the flavor of this cigar. It was smooth and flavorful. The draw is consistent and the construction is top notch.
Maker's Mark Bourbon 562

I was impressed by the way it was packaged so I decided to try , I opened the tube cut cigar with my cutter and was delighted with the aroma upon lighting the cigar the aroma was even more delightful each puff was as incredible as the last
Dglore on 07/09/15
Good, not great infused cigar. The tube is nice and makes this feel like a premium cigar. Unfortunately, the cigar doesn't match up to the price and packaging. If you get one cheap it's a decent smoke. Otherwise don't waste your time.

Infused cigars aren't really my thing, but a friend who' not into cigars saw this and got me it. To be nice I smoke it with her and wasn't expecting much, but I actually enjoyed most of it. The flavor was nice at the beginning, but it got very bitter and tar-ry towards the end. It was a cool cigar and I'm glad I had it, but it's not a regular in my humi
Name says it all
Eljave35 on 07/18/15
Maker's Mark put their iconic seal on this cigar just like they do for their bourbon. Just like their bourbon, they made this cigar taste just as good. Very solid stick. Seamless wrapping and minimal flaws. Perfect with the bourbon complimenting the smoke, but just as satisfying alone!
Did they forget the bourbon?
WK7 on 07/20/15
The flavor is good but I rated it Los due to it not meeting my expectations. I was expecting a rich bourbon flavor in the cigar, but just like the makers mark cigarillos there seemed to be a complete lack of Kentucky straight bourbon in the smoke. Overall decent cigar but disappointed with the taste compared to my expectations.
Nice bourbon taste
Don on 07/20/15
This cigar came in a nice little glass tube with the familiar design of the makers mark bottle design. I paid 9 dollars which is a little more than j usually do but it was worth it. It was a nice medium cigar with a great bourbon taste, which I also really like. If you have a chance give it a shot!
Made a Mark on Me!!!
M.Johnson on 07/20/15
As a fan of their whiskey I knew I was already going to be a fan of the cigar. It's a flavor bomb of bourbon,leather, oak and should definitely be paired with the bourbon to get the grand effect a little pricey in my opinion but a definite must have
not as good as hooed
gecko4life on 07/30/15
I wanted to try this at B&M store. I was afraid.it was more novelty than truly a goos cigar. Well my fears were right. It had a very tight draw and had to retouch it multiple times. Flavors were not what I like in a cigar
fjords McCain's Fujitsu on 06/16/15
For a cigar drenched in bourbon, there seems to be no discernable bourbon taste. It's just soggy with nothing going on that add to the experience. The cap on the tube takes longer to gwt off then it takes for me to lose interest in this cigar. The cigar itself seems to be short filler sweepings. The dominant taste is cardboard with hints of stale and rotten tobacco with maybe a little bit of hay. Better to drink the bourbon separate and smoke some thing else than waste your time with this one.
Not the best but still a great smoke
DjShift on 08/03/15
Bought a single at a local store for the packaging. Wasn't the best cigar I've ever had but it did look nice in the humidor and my opinion might just be based on the fact I haven't tried real bourbon yet to compare it to. I will say it was constructed well and burned even however.
Bought it for the looks
The Fancy Stig on 08/04/15
A bit gimmicky but a nice looking one to display in the humidor. I smoked my first and only one just the other day and personally wasn't a huge fan of the flavor but at least it was pretty cool looking while it lasted. Maybe the infused ones just aren't for me.
don't do it!
alebue on 06/13/15
This is The worst cigar I have ever smoked, on par with Ron Mexico. the draw and construction were fine but the flavors were atrocious. Bitter sweetness and as failed attempt at makers mark flavors completely ruined any other flavors that might have been present. The only saving grace for this stick was the equally shitty beer that I paired with it.
I love makers mark
Bmilne on 08/07/15
I was very excited to try this and was not let down. Makers mark is my favorite drink. This cigar was mild but very flavorful. I would recommend this to anyone who likes whiskey, or a cigar that is different from all of the rest. Very flavorful.
jimmyjimjames on 06/13/15
From the onset you can taste the whiskey taste. The problem I have is that it's a super taste and not a flavor that has been infused in the cigar like the folks at drew estate do. I get that infusing a whiskey taste would be difficult, but I just don't really love dipped cigars. Spend more time on the quality of the smoke vs. the creativity of your packaging.
Not great taste
Blong14 on 08/08/15
I frst sampled one of these cigars at the Ky Derby during the Makers Mark event. Goes great with the whiskey. But that is what Makers Mark should stick to. Whiskey. Tight ash good burn. Ok draw. Semi-ok taste. Would not want to smoke it all the time.
Just ok. Would try again.
HD1957XL on 08/19/15
Less than expected. Everything was great...the flavor left me bored. Perfect construction, good draw. The quality was first rate...but the flavor was neither here nor there. I would try again. Maybe it was just the one I had.
quality smoke-not quite my flavor
BigDaddyAl on 08/25/15
It's quality construction, but the flavor was not what I expected. I was somewhat disappointed. I think without the infusion this cigar could stand on it's own. With some subtle changes this would be a great smoke for me.

if you love bourbon, which if you love cigars and not bourbon something is wrong with you, but if you love bourbon and cigars this cigar is absolutely awesome. the taste is fantastic and the Bourbon lasts all the way through to the nub.
Hit the Mark
Burkly on 09/14/15
This one surprised me. When I first bought this cigar I thought of it as a sales gimick that wouldn't deliver. Once I lit it up, all that dissapears. The draw was easy with slight resistance, that's how I like it. The flavors were a huge dose of what I can only describe as an old time cherry cola taste, and the flavor never changed. The price on MM cigars is a little high for me but 100% worth a try
Drink and a cigar all rolled into one.
xXxRomeo on 09/25/15
Makers mark..... More shouldn't have to be said. This cigar is expertly crafted and truely captures the flavor and essence of makers mark. Every smooth cool draw brings notes of oak and burbon. Obviously I reccemend pairing with makers mark.
Karl on 09/28/15
I gave this five stars for consistency because everyone I have had has been consistently terrible. I was massaged by the smell of it. The construction was good though and I know there is a niche for a cigar like this but I am not in that niche.
