Customer Reviews of “BlendLab - RT-654”
I love this cigar! It had some construction issues, but all around a great smoke. Another CI Blend Lab Success! You guys rock! A must have smoke for those who like Medium Body smokes. (although this is more a mild-medium).
RK of SEVERN, MD
This is a very stout cigar...plenty of smoke, lasts long and strong on the cream and coffee notes...stays together well and smokes evenly. I will definitely be grabbing a few more of these in the future.

This has to be my most favored cigar of all I have ever had except for the hand rolled genuine Cuban Cohibas I was able to enjoy in Jamaica(Take that as a huge compliment CI !!) RT654 is a great flavorful yet mild blend of tobaccos . The blenders/rollers' workmanship in these is right there on point. No holes,tears,or unraveling of the wrapper .No bite, no sharpness,nothing but Mmmmm. At $5 per its definitely affordable and is definitely a mild/medium treat that lasts about an hour. This is one of those cigars that you take an easy draw on and while rolling the flavor over your palate , you just can't help but look at it and roll it gently in your thumb and fingers and know this is "living well". Couple it up with a good whiskey (Gentleman Jack,please) on the rocks and a comfy chair on the porch and thats a great evening smoke while watching the sun set with the wife. I keep a few in the humidor at all times. Not quite as many as I'd like to have . I do however like better the ones that I have let age a while (6 months)in 73% humidity. As soon as I get back to having a regular income again , these will be first on my RE-order list. Thank you CI Blendlab .

RW of Nazareth, PA
Very Nice on the high end of a mild cigar but on a low end of a medium cigar in strength I would recomend this cigar
GZ of Spring Valley, NY
More towards the medium side of things, but sadly not a memorable smoke. It was fairly one dimentional, no flavor profile progression, decent amounts of smoke. This was the second cigar I smoked from the Mild-Med sampler and I remember the XL-6560 flavors more. Construction and burn were great, draw as a tad tight. Typical flavor notes one would expect from a Mild-Med cigar, nothing special. Overall I was disappointed with the cigar.

The RT-654 was smooth with hints of cedar and cream. The aroma was nice and the draw was bit tight. Perhaps more time in the humidor would help with the draw. The wrapper began to crack midway through the cigar which may have to do with me smoking it out in the cold weather. Overall a good mild cigar and worth a try.

The RT-654 was the perfect mild bodied for a wedding gift. All of us loved them. Best part was that the employees were helpful and I told him what I liked and he recommended this blend lab cigar. I could not be happier. I have most of the box left, but I am happy with the new addition to my humidor. I could smoke it every day.

This was a very good mild cigar. Construction, draw, burn were all spot on and, though a mild cigar, this had lots of flavor. I did notice a flavor progression for about one quarter of the cigar beginning with the second half of the cigar and the best way I can describe it is that it tasted like a Montecristo White. Which, in my opinion, have a unique flavor. This is worth a try if you like mild cigars.
DP of Westfield, MA
Very good cigar!. Packs a punch for the first 3/4" of burn but smooths out to a medium to full bodied smoke with a nice aftertaste. Will buy again!
DK of Easton, PA
When I got this my jaw hit the ground! I couldn't believe how..... beautiful, for lack of a better word, it smelled and how smooth and creamy it was. It just became my new favorite and I'll definetely be getting more ASAP!!! Don't ever get rid of this. Thanks!!!!!!
CO of Troy, NY
RT-654 was my first out of the blend lab and I am extremely impressed. Very nice flavor and after taste, burned extrememly well. Draw was a tad tight but for the price of this cigar I am quite satisfied, would definitely purchase again.
