Review Notes: I have a buddy, not a cigar smoker, who bought this sampler from Thompson because he wanted the little metal briefcase that came with it. He had 8 cigars left & asked me how much I would give him for them. I told him $10 thinking he would tell me forget it. To my surprise, he said that was exactly the figure he had in his head. This cigar was among them. Having smoked Belmondo before, I didn't expect much. I remembered an annoying sweet cloying tone. Actually, this mild little cigar is surprisingly smokeable. The construction & draw are pretty good. The appearance is ok, with a tan CTS wrapper & just a bit of sloppiness with the gum sealant. I would say typical Dominican light sweetness, that builds some as you smoke it, but doesn't cloy. Not something I would want a steady diet of, but well worth the $1.25 I paid for it.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (5) No (7)
