Title: The Cigarette Smoker's Cigar

This is definitely a good cigar for the price, probably one of the best cigars you'll find for a dollar a piece. It is, however, a one dollar cigar. I love to keep these on hand to give away. I'm not ashamed to hand one to a beginning smoker and I don't feel the guilt of wasting an excellent smoke on a novice pallet. There is really nothing to complain about this cigar, but there's nothing other than its price to recommend it either.

Title: An Incredible Cigar from Beginning to End

This is one of the cigars that keeps getting better and better as it burns. It starts out mellow and nutty with a great draw. As you smoke, the flavor keeps getting creamier and sweeter. It never grows overpowering or sharp right to the end. This is one of the few cigars I'm likely to burn my fingers on because I'm unwilling to put it down. I highly recommend pairing it with a lighter, slightly bitter afternoon cocktail like a perfect martini or negroni.

Title: The Cab Sauv of Cigars

Listening to someone describe this cigar is like hearing a Sommelier talk about a high altitude Cab: It's rich and smooth, with dark red fruit flavors and beautifully spiciness. I'll admit, it was a little milder than I was expecting from the Honduran Corojo wrapper, but I picked them up on a beat the clock sale, and I'm glad I did! It's a great rich smoke at a very reasonable price. A good cigar to keep in your humidor for guests who are new-ish to cigars.

Title: One of the Best Cigars for the Price

The Commodore Churchill is an absolutely unbeatable smoke at this price. Nice and clean with a beautiful draw right to the last puff, it has pleasant grassy notes and touch of spiciness. It's something to pair with an amber ale or mead, rather than your traditional, bolder liquors.

Title: One of the best bargains available...

I have recently been smoking Perdomo cigars of all flavors and this is one of the best of the bunch. Nice aroma of nuts, leather, and cocoa with cold draw flavors the same. Once lit, burn is sharp and draw is effortless. I tend to like a light draw and these are perfect in my opinion. Great smoke output with the smoke being thick and rich. I will always have some of these in the humidor from now on... Humi info - 68% @ 70-72 degrees

Title: Wack

Whack, Honestly I have been a big fan of pepin cigars but have been finding to many issues with different sticks, from plugged to wrapper issues with the flor de Los Antilles unwrapping just above the label, same goes for the new Connecticut stick. I think they should concentrate on there own stuff and not roll for other companies. The revised centurion does no justice for its predecessor, and the la antiguidad just doesn't agree with me, I wish it did :( Just my opinion

Lots of sweet, full flavor. Let it rest in your humi for a few weeks. Not as strong as people make it out to be. It may have at one time. Stronger cigars out there today. Price point in incredible.

Title: Better get some of these.

Nice smooth,long, relaxing smoke. Predominant taste is creamy with nuts, spice and cedar at points. Lots of smoke with cool non-harsh burn throughout. Construction is superb. No visible seams, cap very nicely done, char line never deviates or canoes at all. Price is amazing for this cigar. Get some as it is hard to find.

Title: Good, reasonably priced cigar.

This is an amazing cigar, particularly for the price. Lots of spice at the beginning. Settled down into a creamy, earthy smoke with lots of stray flavors thrown in at different stages-cedar,nuts,etc. May develop more body with humidor time. I liked it a lot.

Cigar is very smooth, rich, sweet nutty aroma, cocoa tatse. Has a bit of a nic kick. Recommend a sweet beverage to go along. Very little if any spice. Price point makes this a no brainer. Buy a 5 pack, then a box.

Title: Amazing New Cigar! Cuban or Better

Smoked a Fratello Corona just now - totally enthralled with the construction, burn, and, most importantly, flavor and complexity. Not affiliated with Atlantic or Fratello - and will state without question this is the best non-Cuban, natural wrapper cigar I've ever smoked - and it's better than most Cubans of recent vintage that I have smoked. The blend includes a Peruvian leaf that adds a dimension to the flavors that leaves a very prominent, good, Habano after-taste without the heaviness associated with Habano cigars. Lots of pepper in the retrohale - woody, creamy, spicy flavors with perfect burn, draw and construction. These cigars are a bargain at VIP pricing - and I just ordered two more boxes and saved the tiny remainder of the nub to grind for salad seasoning. Yes - it's that good. Easily surpasses whatever I have smoked from Tatuaje, My Father, Illusione, Altadis, General Cigar, AJ Fernandez and the rest. Perfect counterpart to the Drew Liga line for an afternoon smoke. Starts off medium and ends medium full with a nice, long finish but leaves the palate clean and ready for more. They won't be around at current pricing for long. GVH

Title: I'm impressed!

First, I appreciate thoughtful delivery of I received these cigars today, but I already smoked one of them before aging. Oliva serie G maduro presidente showed really great performance. Burn was almost razor sharp and there were plenty of creamy smoke output. I felt caramel, cream, espressom butter, pepper in it. It's draw was good. Although I drew quite fast, it lasted for 2hrs! I;m very impressed and satisfied.

Title: A truly satisfying smoke

Rating cigars, like anything else, is always problematic; it's such a personal thing, like red wine. You can't tell someone else what to like. However, this is one of the most satisfying cigars I've ever smoked, and I've smoked over fifteen thousand in my life. The wrapper tasted good, the flavour was very satisfying; the cigar is very firmly packed with no soft spots. Better yet, the head of the cigar doesn't become soft toward the end, as so many cigars do. This cigar draws easily and burns evenly, producing a very nice ash. As with everything else in life, it's not perfect. What is? However, it comes close to perfection. If only the manufacturer could be persuaded to make the same cigar, but two to three inches longer. That way the flavours would have more chance to develop.

Title: Cheap Maduro

I love Maduro Cigars, what can I say. I try a wide range of Maduros always looking for the Perfect "every day" smoker; you know; "not too cheap-not too expensive. Well, this one falls in that category BUT that is really all it does. I prefer a smooth oily wrapper that develops character as you smoke it; this is not that cigar. I'm not saying you should not try this one but be aware that if you have developed specific tastes for good all-a-round Maduros... this one will help you to continue your search. For the buck the "bang" you get is equal BUT remember, your not spending much so don't expect too much.

Robusto 25-Pack

Rated By: John Oliver on 4/27/2014 9:27:00 PM
Title: Good Value

Lit one of these up right out of the box when delivered. The burn was wonky and had to be touched up a couple of times. Loved the medium body sweetness with tastes of earth, pepper and cedar. Was not impressed with these sticks until I lowered the humidity between 65%-67% and slowed down the draw intervals. After a couple of months the burn is sharp no touch ups required. If you try to smoke these too fast they will start to burn wonky. Just put it down and the burn will self correct. I smoke these to the nub every time now. Unfortunately it took me 12 sticks to get the humidity and draw intervals right. These are my go to smokes when I can't decide what to pull out of the humidor. Need to get another box or two shortly.

Diplomatico Maduro

Rated By: Mark Ellis on 4/21/2014 6:02:00 PM
Title: Smoke something else

I ordered a Padron 1964 Anniversary Diplomatico Maduro (Churchill) with great anticipation, given the extent of media coverage, reviews and ratings, and advertising for Padron cigars. The result, however, was very disappointing. The initial lighting and burn was exemplary, as to be expected, but it didn't take long for things to go awry. The first three-quarters of an inch were excellent, giving rise to expectations of a full, great smoke. After that initial burn, however, the cigar became increasingly difficult to draw, and twice needed help from my lighter to remain lighted. I noticed about this time that the cigar had begun to swell a good inch and a quarter behind the ash, perhaps lending to the difficulty of the draw. The aroma had also changed by that point from leathery to the aroma you get burning the dead undergrowth on your lawn, which includes scorching the new green blades of grass--i.e.--a burned green-grass aroma. An inch later, not only had the swelling extended to an inch and a half behind the ash, but the aroma was that of a burning tire. With these aromas and the difficulty in drawing, I decided to forgo any more of the Padron 1964 Anniversary and snuffed it. The bottom line is: this experience has shattered the Padron mystique for me. I have had better cigars at half the price and no longer need to wonder about Padron.

Title: Close to the perfect smoke

This is a medium to full-bodied stick with flavors of pepper, wood and coffee pepper and wood notes. It's wrapped in a near perfect natural brown wrapper that's somewhat toothy. Upon firing up this beauty you will find most notable black pepper taste. Going through the first third, the smoke becomes smooth yet strong, with a unique woody taste. In the second third, brings out definite coffee and chocolate tastes buy the spiciness remains The last third brings out tastes of leather and coffee. This is one of my favorite smokes and has made me a confirmed Nicaraguan smoker.

I have been smoking cigars for over 20 years. I don't have a lot of money to spend on cigars, but my wife let me splurge on some good cigars last November on my birthday. I picked the PDR Oscuro Red and the PDR Seleccion. They were full bodied, spicy and delicious. I must say, these Pigtail Factory cigars taste almost identical and for a fraction of the price! A must try, if you are on a budget like me and enjoy flavorful, spicy smokes.

Title: Fair Value

Purchased a box of these just to try as I was curious to taste what you would get for about $2 a stick. I found the taste very earthy, maybe even grassy. These flavors are not in my favorable flavor range, but may be appealing to others. The burn needed a couple of touch ups throughout the smoke but never went out. It's a fair price for what you get, a good work around the yard stick.

Rated By: DwN on 3/26/2014 10:57:00 PM

Bought a box of these because I've had some very good cigars with Cameroon tobacco and Peruvian, but never together. I'm a big fan of the sharp sweetness found with Peruvian. I had this cigar on two nights back to back just to make sure I liked it as much as I did the first time. The cigar has an even burn from start to finish. To get the most from this cigar I would suggest a slow even draw. This baby does well right down to the nub. The ash trail on this is amazing. For the two I've smoked it nearly took until half the cigar was smoked before it fell off. And when the ash started again, it carried itself nearly to the nub. I know this may be an insignificant point, but it's worth mentioning. Overall, a great little find.

Just what the world needs, yet another Nicaraguan boutique-brand cigar, right? Well, yeah, I guess it does. Beautiful appearance, cut clean. Starts off plain, but flavor quickly builds, wood, leather, and traces of dark fruit - juicy and delicious. A nice burned wood flavor builds in the second half. Burned unevenly at first, but evened out with a couple touch-ups. Strong flavors, mild with the nicotine. Good stuff. I'll buy more.

Had to do a few touch-ups during this 60+ minute stick. As this was the first stick from the box, it could be a one off. Although it seemed stiff to he touch, it was a very easy draw with lots of smoke. Nice size stick with an earthy/leathery/hay taste. Not a bad stick for the price.

No. 11 Maduro

Rated By: DwN on 1/26/2014 10:03:00 PM

Tried this smoke late one morning just before lunch because it looked like something I'd have just enough time to enjoy. And I did! The best part about this smoke was its smoothness. Even on multiple draws this stick never came across harsh. It was also on the sweeter side. From start to finish the cigar didn't change. I found this something to get used to since most of what I've smoked in the past usually goes through an evolution for the palate. Not this one and that's not a bad thing. If you want an all around everyday maduro to enjoy, go for the Private Stock #11.

Looking at the dimensions it is tempting to think, "Ok, another quick smoke." but the Illusione Rothschild will light up your taste buds and make you reconsider this delightful stick. Sweet cream., leather, wood a bit of pepper -- this cigar has a very sophisticated taste profile together with a perfect draw and excellent construction. It is not common to find all those characteristics in a smaller cigar, Illusione Rothschild is no common cigar!

Rated By: Michael on 12/30/2013 3:07:00 PM
Title: Alec Bradley Churchill Habano 2nds

As these cigars were labelled 'seconds' I was not expecting such an excellent quality. The cigar was so smooth yet bold in flavour, with an exceptionally uniform burn. With the first few draws there was a slight bitterness to the cigar, but toward the end of the first third, this was gone and a delicious crisp smoke replaced it. The second third improved even more with a smooth finish in the last third. A slight tangy bitterness at the beginning and finish of the cigar was my only dissapointment to the taste, however this was very minimal in the overral experience. My only other criticism is that the cigar had a slight premeature detachment of ash. I was hoping for atleast one and a half thirds worth of ash before detachment, however it was around a third worth of ash, which is still very good for a Churchill. A very good cigar, with beautiful aromas and an especially good even burn. This was an inexpensive alternative which still maintained an exceptional quality.

Gran Robusto

Rated By: DwN on 12/27/2013 9:01:00 PM

Bought a box of these based on price point alone. Wasn't sure what I was getting but I ended up thoroughly impressed. I will break the cigar down by thirds after a short intro. The cigar is dark and oily and has a great aroma. The Robusto, after looking back, would probably be the right size for this cigar. The cigar, from beginning to end was exceptionally smooth. Even on multiple draws there was no harshness. 1/3 - The cigar starts off well with a medium-full, rich creamy flavour. Nothing really jumped out at me. 2/3 - Very much like the 1/3. The cigar continued to burn well but as I smoked, some of the wrapper began to flake. 3/3 - Here is where the cigar stands out! When I hit the final third of this cigar flavours started bouncing from all directions. The same rich creamy oily flavours as found earlier in the cigar continued. However, I started getting a sweet buttery taste with a berry/fruity flavour mixed with hints of black licorice. All of it blended so well together that I smoked this one right to the nub. It got better and better with each draw toward the end. I wish the entire cigar was like this throughout. All in all, I can't wait to sit down with some bourbon on the rocks and have at this one again. I think this cigar will go well with some Wild Turkey American Honey.

I went to a favourite cigar store in Minneapolis and chose this, having purchased a box in advance through AC. Just wanted to try one out with a buddy. Upon removing the wrapper I noticed the deep colour of this stick. It had a pleasant and rich odour. I cut her up and gave it a light and was very happy with the first few draws. I smoked this cigar easily through two-thirds. When I hit the final portion of the stick it hit back! I mean, SMACK! I had to pause and put it out. I've only had one other cigar nail me as hard. Once all was said and done, I am still interested in giving this cigar another try. I will approach it a bit differently, taking fewer draws over a longer period of time. I would encourage anyone interested in a full bodied smoke to give this cigar a try. Be careful.

Decided to purchase a box of these based on many online reviews. I wasn't disappointed. This cigar starts smooth, remains consistent and isn't found lacking. I enjoyed it from beginning to end and was sad to see it go. Despite the fact that I was smoking this beauty while shovelling snow, nothing was taken away in any respect. I think this cigar would go very well with a nice rum like Flor de Cana. Best part? I have a full box, minus one, remaining!

I am a fan of maduros and stumbled upon this smoke in my humidor, not knowing how it got there in the first place (go figure). I gave it a try and all I can say is - wow! There's something about this cigar I absolutely adore. I think it might be best described as a sharp sweetness. I get as much from smoking this cigar as I do inhaling the wafting smoke that comes from it. Does it for me every time. This cigar has made me a fan of Peruvian tobacco, and has the same flavour profile as the San Martin Perfecto from Tabacalera del Oriente International, a puro Peruvian cigar maker. All I can say when my box is gone, I will be ordering another.

This was my first stab at smoking a Padron and I have to say it was a really nice smoke. Though probably low on the "padronometer" in terms of what else they have available, there is a distinctiveness to this cigar I haven't tasted in others. I found the best part of the smoke in the 2/3 as this is where a more buttery-caramel creamy flavour presented itself quite well. As a fan of maduros in general, I liked the diversion this cigar took me on. Will definitely have another and consider this a "break from the usual" cigar.

Title: Don't Buy These- They are for me only!

I have been buying the Robusto Extra Oscuro and the Robusto Oscuro for a year. Both are phenom cigars. Atlantic isn't fooling around here. These are the real deal. So I tried the Belicoso Rosado and fell in love. From the first puffs, the cigar is creamy, a nice spiciness, loads of cocoa and coffee, dried fruit, extremely rich, balanced, and smooth. If I were a rich man....I would buy 10 bundles of this cigar. The other two blends need 2-3 weeks to mature. I am smoking the Rosado on the first day ROFT. And it is perfect. I compared leaf stats and I am pretty sure I know what it is but I don't want to guess and be wrong. But I can tell you this, it is a $10 cigar. I don't need other cigars. When I am allowed to buy more at the beginning of the month. (Yes, my wife keeps tabs on my cigar purchases.) I am going to buy four bundles of these sticks. Impossible to get tired of them. Kudos Atlantic Cigar!!

"K Hansotia has done it again. Rogue is one great cigar! On a scale of 1-10 it's a 10+. Here's why: Rogue Tyrant (5x52) has everything you want and expect in a cigar. Excellent construction, taste, burn, and draw. It's like a symphony to your senses with its complex taste and heavenly aroma. Give this cigar a try, you won't be disappointed.

Title: Great stick for the price

Got a bundle, had one, was underwhelmed. Put them away for a few weeks, revisited them, much more impressed after a little down time. Decent flavors, tons of smoke (like most DE sticks), if a little mild for my tastes. Still a great stick for the price, one I'll probably keep in the cabinet for the times I want a mild stick or one that may get put down halfway through.

This cigar was a major disappointment. Poor construction, no taste, and the draw was too light. Now I know why they offered a "free" $25 lighter. Don't order unless you want a $25 lighter for around $120.

I am new to smoking high quality cigars and only just recently have set up my Humidor. My humidity has been too high since I've started (~73%) but these cigars seem to like the moisture! They smoke great with a smooth flavour profile! I've only tried 6-8 types of cigars so far but this is my fav! If you are new to high quality cigars, give this one a try!

Title: Can't beat it for the money

I confess to liking dark-wrapper cigars ("Love my maduros!"), so when I saw the description of the Kristoff "Sumatra" I was intrigued. Like most everyone, I smoke reasonably-priced cigars and have had a couple premium ones, and will likely never have a $1000 stick bless my lips, but, for the money, I challenge any dark-wrapper smoker to top the Kristoff Sumatra. It's excellent from appearance, to burn, to aroma. Cigars parallel wine in price and preference: you don't have to pay a lot to get something you truly enjoy. The Kristoff "Sumatra" is pure satisfaction.

Title: Love this little guy!

I had been looking for a small cigar that would offer all the taste and features of a full-size stick--and struck gold with the La Aroma De Cuba Minuto. I'm self-employed and just don't often have an hour to savor a full-size cigar. Enter the "Minuto." The burn was perfect and after 12 minutes I still only had 3/4 inch of ash--which held for a good 15 minutes-plus! The aroma out of the wrapper was heavenly and the smoking experience did not disappoint. As long as La Aroma makes this pocket-rocket, I will keep it on-hand. Just one request: could I get a maduro wrapper? Want a convenient short-smoke? Buy this cigar!

Title: A new Favorite

I had heard good things about La Jugada and, after letting several rest in my humidor, I am having my first taste. All I can say is "WOW". This is a really remarkable cigar. The flavors of fruit, wood, leather and peppery spice really fill the mouth and linger slightly on the palate. This cigar has a very distinctive flavor and aroma I find very pleasant. If you are a fan of Ecuadorian Habano wrappers you are sure to be pleased.

Nice sold unit, comes with keys for both locks, and 4 bar humidifier pieces. All in all I am very pleased with my purchase. Only complaint is that there is a visible space where the paint ends underneath the front cabinet door. As if the paint job was done prior to the door being put on, so that it does not match up, with the bottom of the door when in closed position. But not very noticeable unless pointed out.

Title: I will be ordering a box

I ordered two of the 50x6's to experiment a little after reading other peoples reviews. I agree with the strong black pepper taste to start, and it even carries into the start of the 2/3's part of the burn. It started to mellow out some and turned to more of a oak/creamy kind of blend around the half way point. The last part of the burn was more like a heavy cream flavor mixed with some strong black coffee. I really liked how it could go from strong black pepper to strong smooth cream.

Le Taureau

Title: New Favorite

Prelight: Sweet hay, natural tobacco aroma, I am not normally a big box-pressed cigar guy, I know that making them is a challenge to not get them to soft or hard and this ones getting me nervous with it being sponging from top to bottom and some damage to the foot, not having a cellophane wrapper to protected it. 1st 1/3 Sweet cocoa, very light pepper, coffee, spice, especially on the finish with some mild honey notes on the front. Great draw to be expected with the loose construction, burn line a little wonky, no smokestack resting smoke similar to the Undercrown's with there heavy oils and putting off tons of static smoke. What set this cigar apart so far is the flavor balance, with no note dominating. I love the honey note on the finish, mixed with the spice and it still mixes in the sweet cocoa, light pepper and coffee. The spongy construction seems to not be taking away from the quality of the cigar and after a few more I'll learn what the consistency of it's normalcy is. 2nd 1/3 The after taste are meaty and very flavorful, the second third adds some cedar with the departure of the light pepper and the spice dying down but still there. The burn line in still a bit wonky but hasn't gotten worse, the smoke out put is huge, along with the great draw All the remaining notes are fusing into a creamery smoke well worth the price of admission Last 1/3 RoMa Craft Tobac, Undercrown, My Uzi Weighs a Ton, Liga Privada #9, Alec Bradley MAXX 'The Fix', Ashton VSG Enchantment, Ramon Bueso Genesis The Project Muy Bueso are some of my top picks but this stick is kicking there ass and fast becoming my new favorite. All the cigars mention can't compete with the Illusione Epernay Le Taureau ability to be excellent from the first light, where most cigars need to warm up into the 2nd 1/3 to shine. The Le Taureau is now drifting slightly towards full strength with the N buzz hitting me a bit but not where I go dizzy. Continues with the wonderful after taste and the notes bubbling to the top and letting the others move in gracefully. Burn line now very straight here in the last 1/3, I wouldn't say it is the most complex stick out there but a well balanced cigar. The soft construction feel didn't hamper the quality at all and in my opinion a cigar that should not be missed and box worthy even at it higher price point. Smoke time: 1hr 35min Score: 10 out of 10
