These are really good.

The bundle I got had no cigars with construction issues. They draw and burn well with lots of creamy smoke. They seem to be more Mild/Medium than Medium/Full though. The first few I smoked were smooth and consistent to the end. The last few have been bitter at first then mellowing out by 1/2 way. I have smoked 10 already and decided to let the other 10 age, wrapped in Spanish cedar, in my humidor in hopes of losing the bitter taste. I will likely buy these again and will recommend them to friends.
Decent/okay, but overall, not that good.

This is a very mild cigar; further, the lack of consistency of the roll is the biggest issue; i.e., within the bundle, there will be 3-4 (at least) stogies that are non-smokable due to the poor rolling. However, using a poke will help in the draw, but I will not order these again. Not to mention, they tastes nothing like or close to a Cubano cigar that is is supposed to be like.
It’s not bad, it’s just ok for me.

I purchased these based on many reviews stating this has become their favorite daily smoke. The cigar isn’t bad but if you are used to smoking higher quality cigars, just make sure to adjust your expectations. The flavor is very mild. Overall it doesn’t accomplish the feeling I want when I sit down to unwind from the day. In other words, I don’t look forward to smoking this cigar. I don’t think this will become my daily go-to for this price range. Still on the hunt.
Fire it up!

This has been my "Go To" cigar for years. Very consistent in flavor and drool factor. I have compared to MC Number 1 and found little difference. The burn is even. Draw is better with a plug cut vs a notch, but that is expected with any smoke. Never had a runner as you might expect from a cheap cigar.
