“I just began smoking cigars and by far this is the best cigar I have smoked. I have smoked Las Cabrillas from Honduras, Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real, and Cusano Double Connecticut and the 650 beats them all. I have given these cigars to friends as gifts and they also have said this is one of the best cigars they smoked. Very good taste and great price too!!”
“I smoked a YT-650 today and it is smooth and tasty. CI Hamburg had them on sale for $3.00. I would have paid more. Comparable to a top-notch Connecticut at half the price.”
“A lovely looking cigar, very attractive. The draw was a bit tight and the burn had some uneven moments. Mild to medium in body with a creamy smoke, the flavor was consistent but not very rich. Good with a morning coffee.”
“a nice blend. burned very well. very smooth throughout. reminded me of a rockey edge lite”
“Great cigar. Went from good to better tasting while smoking.”
“I was in the Nazareth store and I was looking for a mild to medium cigar and was directed to this cigar. I was told that it was peppery but was unsure and didn't ask what that meant. I guess I don't like peppery because I didn't like this cigar at all. I think I am too cheap also because I don't like to spend more than $5.00/stick for a smoke!”
“If you like a mild smoke this is it. It mellows into a hint of pepper. The draw and burn are perfect., not a single re-light. It was a little pricy at $8 a stick, but I did enjoy it. I'd like to thank Joe for turning me on this gem.”
“Not bad - but overpriced. At best I would compare to a Rocky Patel Edge Lite. Draw a bit tight, but nice even burn. Construction was good and held a nice firm greyish black ash. Taste was a bit papery with a sourish aftertaste.”
“Okay smoke. Had to relite a few times.”
“The draw on this was easy with a good ash and moderate amount of smoke. I felt that the flavor was a bit harsher as it went along. But overall the appearance was great and the draw and burn perfect. The price point at $8.00 was a bit steep, which lowered my overall experience but the construction was perfect. The smoke was my only real contention with this.....there just wasn't a lot of it, however, what was there had a nice flavor. I would purchase this again.”
“This cigar had a nice even burn and a long lasting smoke.”
“This was a descent smoke, but a bit on the pricey side. The draw was easy with good smoke and tight ash. It got a bit harsh on the way down but smoothed out toward the end. This was an OK cigar. Not the best of the lot, but on the better end of the Blend Lab. The price gives me a bit of a pause as there are better cigars in the lab for less money.”
“Harsher than exected. Bitting from first draw. Hot finish. Very nice roll. Even burning.”
“Nice mild smooth flavor. No harshness at all, even when first lighting. Pretty even burn throughout the smoke. Overall a decent everyday smoke, but nothing spectacular.
The draw was on the airy side. Maybe I just had one rolled a little looser but it lowered my perception of quality which made it seem slightly overpriced.
If the quality improved or the price dropped, I would probably buy this cigar again.”
“Wrapper is a bit too fragile, and the wrapper looked like it was applied with far too much water, I know CT's are tough to work with, but this just looked a bit shoddy. Smoke was def. a med. peppery from start to finish, prelight was woody and earthy, cold draw had tobacco, wood and pepper notes. Burn was nice and even, shorter overall smoke time, construction aside from the appearance of the wrapper was good. Wrapper split at the head during cutting, at the foot during lighting.”
“I love this smoke! Mild, but not weak. A bit tough to light/draw at first, but after that, pure smoking pleasure. I would enjoy many more of these for sure.”
“Very mild from first light to finish..”
“Just finished this cigar to the nub. If you like Macanudo, Macanudo Gold, Rocky Patel Connecticut, 5 Vegas Gold, then you are going to love this. Much better than a Gurkha Beauty. Very creamy, smooth, and with just the right amount of flavor. I would say the flavors were nutty, sweet tobacco, and cream. A rather perfect cigar.”
“Very nice mild aromatic smoke! Definitley underpriced!”
“John R, from the CI Hamburg Store, introduced me to this cigar. Don't ever stop making this GREAT cigar.”
