The draw was very tight from the start and I feared the worst. I wrestled with it until it won. Lost count of the number times I had to relight it and nurse it along. Eventually it became plugged. The flavour and aroma was pleasant but not much of an improvement over machine made Puritos costing considerably less. Overall one star for the cigar and one star for cgarsltd excellent customer service. Would not buy again.

If you're lucky enough to get one of these without quality issues, then for under a fiver you will get the taste of a Montecristo No.4 at less than half the price. True, they are not as pleasing on the eye, but you get a real taste of Cuba on a budget. I've sampled about a dozen so far, however when I got a 5 pack I had to throw 4 out of 5 away due to terrible construction and a draw that was plugged so badly I went blue in the face! It almpst feels like a game of Russian roulette when you get to the checkout. Good luck.

Very nice smoke for under a fiver. Smooth, earthy and a bit of a spice kick the whole way through, definitely buy these again.

If you can get a well made one these would be pretty good. For the price these have a very nice taste. The construction however is terrible. The first one I had, the wrapper peeled off before I even cut the cap off. Second one was OK, but the third peeled away again after I cut the cap off. I'm talking about the whole wrapper, had to bin the first one, but saved the next one as I prefer to leave the wrapper on.
These are a nice mellow smoke, if they could keep their quality under control these would my ideal everyday smoke. Does not seem restricted to this model, I also got the sampler set, one has the wrapper peeling off and another has a tear 1cm from the head 😠

These cost the same as Henri Winterman's tubed coronas de luxe but are in every way superior.
