Review Notes: Based on this cigar's price (low), and general obscurity (high), my expectations were dutifully kept in check. Boy was I surprised. If you are into mild cigars or sometimes just in the mood, this one hits all the marks. Usually accompanied by a much higher price tag, the Helix was Very well constructed, with great burn, and, unlike many milds, enough flavor to maintain your interest. Notes of wood and grass blended with fine, light tobacco rounded out this surprisingly pleasing smoke.

"Sweet and Nutty"

Review Notes: I really like this cigar, and the packaging is cool. With a flawless wrapper and a exl. burn, this robusto lets you focus on the flavors, which are quite good. This is a naturally sweet cigar with some nice nutty aspects, with the sweetness fading a bit at the half-way point and the nuttiness kicking in for the rest of the burn. Price wise, these are right in the middle of the pack at around $4.00 to $5.00 a stick. I'm not sure if I would buy an entire box of these, but I find them to be a unique cigar.

Review Notes: Was told that this was a nice mild cigar on the cheap. Very sad to find out that general taste was one of a cheap gasstation cigar, now I'm one for dark stogies normally but i know what good light wrapper cigar is like... Not this one. On a positive note it had a slow burn to it and was built quite nicely.

"Nice mild smoke"

Review Notes: Not a bad little smoke really. Mild, but no harshness or bad taste at all, just not a lot of "flavor". A bit of dry leaves, maybe a touch of nutty. But cut, lit, burned, smoked well. A little loose on the draw. It goes good WITH something because it doesn't have much flavor. I smoked mine with a beer and then finished with a Klondike bar and water. Good white smoke. The ash was a bit flaky, similar to cigarette ash. It made a bit of a mess. But other than that it wasn't bad for less than 3 bucks!
