Review Notes: I bouught these in a three pack sampler for around eight bucks. I haven't tried the madura but the natural was a good cigar for the money. Very mild, not a whole lot of good flavor, but no bad flavors either. For under three bucks you could do a lot worse.

Review Notes: Well, there's alot of criticism for this stick...but it definitely is mild. I've been a casual smoker for 20+ years... but I still like a mild smoke - and this is one! Burned evenly, nice construction - just a mild woody taste, maybe nutty. No bite to it and stayed lit.

Review Notes: I bought the cigar on recommendation of a friend. Pre-light aroma was pretty nice. Burned pretty nice, and produced lots of thick smoke. Flavor was just O.K. Nice cigar for under $3.00.

"Thrown a Curve - Much Too Mild"

Review Notes: I like all kinds of cigars. I've defended mild cigars on this website when reviewers mark them down for being mild. However, I wasn't ready for this bland a cigar and as one rater said, "it was like smoking air," unlike the rater below, all I could taste was tobacco and some sweetness. This cigar would probably go well with a good scotch, whiskey, coffee or anything else, because it would take on that flavor. The other problem I had with this cigar was the burn. It didn't really want to burn and when it did it was uneven. Several times I had to keep puffing so it wouldn't go out. This cigar was gorgeous with it's light wrapper that was silky smooth. Maybe the taste was not there because I only had it in the humidor a couple of months. There are other better mild smokes out there with FLAVOR for the same price. These cigars would be 5 Vegas Gold, Fonesca, or even 1876 Reserve Robustos.
