"Tastes great, less filling"

Review Notes: I'm not big on the bold, stronger cigars and I found this one to be nice & mild, but still flavorful. Smoked tonight with a glass of cold water. Wrapper appeared a bit dry and might explain the crack that appeared about halfway through the smoke--fortunately, did not affect the burn but was annoying. Easy draw, steady stream of aromatic smoke. First 1/3 had hints of vanilla & wood spice, middle reminded me of a pretzel (seriously) and the last 1/3 had a distinct cherry flavor. Very mild aftertaste. Overall, a good cigar that I'll buy again.

"Morning cigar"

Review Notes: This is a good cigar in the morning as the sun is coming up. It is light and silky smooth. There is a hint of sweetness in the background. It does leave an aftertaste of nicotine after smoking it. The construction is superlative, burns evenly with wonderful blue smoke and the draw is easy. It goes well with a cup of coffee. Make sure the coffee is not too strong or you will lose the flavor of the cigar.

"Not bad, not good"

Review Notes: I agree with other reviewers that the cigar is very mild, it has almost no taste to it. The construction is good, the draw is easy, and they seem to always burn evenly, but all this does not excuse the lack of flavor. As a mixed filler cigar I expected it to be more complex, but the was just nothing there. On the plus side, several of my friends who do not generally smoke cigars did enjoy them, so they are a good cheap cigar to keep around for those who may not appreciate a more flavorful experience. As far as mild cigars go, I would recommend an Excalibur or Rocky Patel Conneticut over this, they are more pricey, but well worth it.

"Weak"

Review Notes: As a newer smoker, I figured I'd give the Helix a try after trying some of the more expensive cigars out there. But you get what you pay for. I would describe this cigar as weak. Weak taste, very slight woody and nutty flavor. It had a decent draw, and it burned even, but it was almost like smoking air. Very very "mild". Wouldn't recommend.

Review Notes: Little taste, and what was there was bitter. Tough draw, too much work to get a decent puff of smoke
