Flor del Todo

A delicious and modestly priced gem from Puros Indios.

If you enjoy Puros Indios cigars, then Rolando Reyes Sr.'s Flor del Todo is the perfect everyday cigar. Indeed, this brand is one of the best values on the market. A classic "Cuban sandwich" cigar, it's densely packed with Brazilian, Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers, and draped in a thick Ecuador Colorado wrapper leaf - one so hearty you could practically chew on it all day. It's medium-bodied with a pleasant, gratifying aroma, and mouth-watering, creamy, nutmeg taste. Loaded with flavor....and less than a buck each! That's why Flor del Todo is the top volume brand on our regular monthly "auto-ship" program. A good cigar at an even better price!

Customer Reviews of “Flor del Todo”
I have smoked 2 bundles of The Flor Del Todo over the years, medium bodied, cream, and yes nutmeg,with a decent burn...
MF of Bogalusa, LA
A great daily smoke (Flor del Todo). Starts off fair but the last few inches are as good as any super premium you'll ever find. I highly recommend this smoke!
MS of Easley, SC
Attention everyone!! Just smoked a Flor del Todo right out of the box...unbelievably smooth and very tasty, well constructed with a nice even burn and a decently held ash. I can only imagine what some humi time will do to these babies. If you are looking for another inexpensive every day smoke you can't go wrong here. Jump on this C.I. outrageous deal now, you won't be sorry. enjoy... life is good.
VB of San Francisco, CA
Just got 40 of them (Flor del Todo) and have smoked 5 now. This is a nice everyday cigar. Having smoked about 50% of the cigars that CI has to offer, I rate this cigar pretty high. Just like the description says, creamy and nutmeg taste. Burns nice and extremely statisfing. Get bargin. Leaves the palet with a nice after taste and doesn't hurt the back of your throat. Me Likey!!
GJ of New Orleans, LA
I received my Torpedo #2 Maduros this week. I opened the box in great anticipation. I looked at the cigars I was like what the...they were kind of ugly and I felt them and they did feel kind of loose. Then I remembered back they were kind of like my first wife loose and kind of ugly. But heck I stilled loved her and married her. So I took them home and had to light one up and try it. Looks are deceiving, what a nice smoke. It had a good burn nice flavor just a wonderful experience in a cigar. I would have to say it was better than my first wife. It even lasted longer than she did. This will be my every day cigar thank you CI for the great deal.
RB of Dewey, AZ
I'm about to place my 4th order for the Flor del Todo's. I have a daughter who regularly sends me smokes from The Dominican Republic, Honduras and Puerto Rico where she lives. None of the over priced brands she sends me compare to this great, (read good and cheap) cigar. I'll keep buying as long as they last. Great clouds of smoke and I'm the hands down smoke-ring champ at my local watering hole with these beauties.
RJ of Tenino, WA
Thanks to CI for the cigar bargain of the year!
GS of Los Angeles, CA
This is an amazing cigar brand (Flor del Todo) - tasty, consistent, and for only $1 a stick, it is now one of my favorites.
DL of San Jose, CA
very nice cigar (Flor del Todo) - smooth and creamy with a hint of spice in the back end...and the wrapper is tasty too. I smoked one right out of the box and I was happy. Even after i smoked it to the nub, it left a pleasant taste in my mouth. I don't recommend anyone else buy these, because I want them for myself. Thanks!
DC of Jacksonville, FL
Why would anyone buy the short-filler garbage they sell at the Drug Store when they can smoke a REAL handmade, long-filler cigar that tastes and smokes great. If you're looking for a premium smoke at drug store price, try this one. (Flor del Todo) I don't have much money, so I'm a bargain hunter, and this smoke stacks up to the premium cigars I'd like to smoke everyday. After trying this cigar, I've moved on to Ronald Reyes premium smokes, and he's the best as they say at interesting, flavorable blends. Lucky for us on a budget that he makes a great cigar like this to enjoy everyday.
D of of Washington, DC
This cigar (Flor del Todo) is another of my favorites for the price. Thanks CI
JW of Camarillo, CA
This is the new "5 cent cigar", for a dollar a smoke these fit the bill. I find that if I put these in a small humidor sans cellophane for a few weeks any ammonia in the tobacco will dissapate and they will be a pretty decent cigar. Hey, these are buck apiece, and I judge them that way.
PN of Yelm,, WA
Incredible bargain!(Flor del Todo) A fantastic smoke at a fantastic price. I was not expecting too much when I ordered them, but what a surprise. I just ordered another shipment of them and probably will order yet another just so I always have them on hand! I actually have tried the Maduro and the Natural. Both are winners!
KS of NORCO, CA
I don't really like to use the phrase 'for the money'; either a cigar is good or it isn't. These are good (Flor del Todo). They're not the prettiest thing and sometimes the burn is a wee bit uneven, but none of this takes away from the flavour. The Churchill Maduros always have a place in my humidors.
MC of MLeesburg, VA
Simply amazing (Flor del Todo). If you're a fan of the Puros Indios Special Aged Piramides, then you'll love this one. It opens with a lush draw and coats the palate with creamy nutmeg and loads of crisp tobacco taste. It burns evenly and fairly quickly, due to the slightly loose roll. What a cigar! What a price!!
SO of Fort Irwin, CA
I ordered these cigars (Flor del Todo) to try for a good everyday smoke. I am very pleased with them, very mild, with a rich and sweet taste. Can't beat the price! I will re-order them again, fer sure.
WS of Marion, NC
For the price, this (Flor del Todo) has become my favorite purchase for "everyday." Perfect size (6X53), good draw to "the last drop," flavorful. I keep one side of my humidor full of these!
GS of Waupaca, WI
These cigars (Flor del Todo) are amazing and the price is perfect for a person on a college budget. The first draw was a little strong for my taste but the rest of the cigar had an almost sweet nutmeg flavor.
RR of ,Jr.Thibodaux, LA
I have wanted to try these for years but would never pull the trigger. Well, when CI recently had the $10.00 off deal, I decided to get 40 of these babies and give them a try. I got the Churchill Maduro. Finally got around to trying one yesterday. The description on the website is dead on. Thick wrapper, one you could chew on all day. Easy to cut and light. Burned evenly except for one time and that quickly caught up and stayed lit and even until I retired it. I enjoyed this cigar very much while I was out mowing my lawn and afterwards watching a ballgame on the TV in my garage. Yep, it lasts quite a while, even outdoors. I am glad I finally broke down and got some of these.
MI of Cincinnati, OH
I always liked rolondos cigars -tried these(Flor del Todo) as usual a damn good cigar not real pretty but very tasty seems like they burn more evenly if cut instead of plugged for the money hard to beat i like the maduro enough said
RM of Cleveland, TX
I'm a big fan of Puros Indios Cigars, but as we all know you can't always afford to be well stocked, so on the recommendation of the CI staff, I gave these a try, I have ordered these continually for 4 shipments to supplement my Puros Indios brands. I have never been disappointed with their price, performance, taste or burn. Meaty, dark and tasty. Out of every box/bundle of cigars there are usually 1 or 2 that are not up to snuff, and with Flor del Todo there is no difference. you get a bum wrapper or a hard foot once in a while, but for the money you do not mind, cut it shorter and smoke it anyway. I have found that if you humidor them for a while with others that they will season and mellow a bit and have a more creamy taste to them, 40 of these Ugly sticks for the price is well worth a look especially if you like to smoke daily or every other day. CI staff is right if your a fan of Porus Indios, these are up your alley. Thanks CI for your recommendations.
PF of Braintree, MA
I wanted a cigar for the everyday smoke, and this one (Flor del Todo) fits the bill nicely. Ordered the Churchills and so far the three I've smoked are similar to the Puros Indios body and taste. I actually am liking them the more I smoke. Great job on giving us "B.A.S'ers" some fantastic deals!!
DK of Mt. Holly Springs, PA
Flor del todo is not the smoothest kid on the block but they are good for the price even for short filler. A little age will do them some good but my problem is I smoke them to quick to get any age on them. I like the #4 natural
RO of chs, SC
After lighting the first one I thought I had received, like Gonz said, "Flor del Doo-Doo". I decided to try one more just to make sure and I'm glad I did. Good draw, good flavor, and cheap to boot. Thanks CI!
JV of Oakville, WA
This is one of my usual suspects in the humidor (Flor del Todo). I cannot emphasize enough how Rolando Reyes Sr is my hero. These cigars might not be the prettiest to the eye, but they are certainly pretty on the palate and definitely to the wallet. I don't hang with the "for a cheap cigar" line because I've smoked some top shelf cigars that I did not enjoy nearly as much as this cigar. My only criticism is that the name is kind of silly, but the smooth earthy smoke is absolutely fantastic. Well done CI and much respect Sr. Reyes.
RS of East Providence, RI
The first time i looked at these beasts the only thing I could think of was, "I sure hope they don't taste the way they look!" To my surprise, they actually weren't that bad. Out of the fifty I bought, i only threw out half a dozen. Either because the wrapper was peeling or broken, or the cigar just didn't have the same taste. But honestly, they were good for the money. Definetly not my favorite cigar, but an affordable every day smoke!
JL of Goshen, NH
I have been smoking cigars for 10 years now. This is an amazing Cigar(Flor del Todo). Don't get fooled with the cheap tag price. Believem me if you smoke this cigar, you will gladly pay $7.00 a stick. Extreamly smooth, Great construction, good draw, already aged, aroma is wonderful. I can't believe this cigar is not in list of premium cigars. I would give this cigar 89 rating. Try to get the Torpedo. Thank you CI. You are the best supplier.
JS of Tamarac, FL
This is one damn good smoke (Flor del Todo). It's a regular in my humidor. The construction is good, the flavor is outstanding, and the price is unbeatable. I'm not one of those cigar snobs that rates cigars as "Earthy, leathery and nutty, with sweet cedar notes, a smattering of spice, and a hint of minerals and nuts." Right - what a bunch of tree-huggin' hippie crap! My rating is three simple categories: Damn Good, Not Bad, and Dog Rocket. For my money, this working stiff parole officer rates Flor Del Toro as "Damn Good". (So long as it's not the maduro - I only give that a "Not Bad").
RO of Alvarado, TX
I am smoking my fourth bundle of Flor del Todo's .I have tryed three sizes and lved them all. I am planning on placing another order. A well constructed good drawing tasty cigar. I smoke as many as seven cigars a day when time allows and I always enjoy my Todo's. Thank you CI for finding a good affordable smoke.
DL of Audubon, NJ
Greta cigar for the money, very impressed, will definitely get these on a regular basis. These are a must try! (Flor del Todo)
DB of Kalamazoo, MI
Good smoke for a great price! The Flor del Todo Meduro Torpedo was a calculated risk on my part to come up with an every day cigar that is less expensive than my local cigar store's Dominican Republic 3rds. I like a full flavored full bodied cigar, and the Flor del Todo fits the bill With a price that if you can beat, I want to know about. The filler is a wee bit loose, but that is the only strike against it. Good Meduro flavor (better than several 5 Vegas I have had), acceptable burn, and cigar to cigar consistency. My main concern is that with all the stellar reviews, CI is gonna raise the price (and right now it it is 5 bucks less than what I got mine for) Good smoke at a Great Price -kevin
KS of saint paul, MN
These cigars have been a nice everyday smoke. (Flor del Todo) I have enjoyed one to two a day and would not hesitate to buy another bundle. If your budget is anything like mine, then this is the cigar for you.
RR of Huntington, WV
First impressions be danged (ugly)! By the time you smoke your first one down and stare at the pile ash that impression will be long gone. Worth every tightly squeezed penny that left my pocket. My humidor is full of the Churchill Mad. for now, but I will be back for more.
CL of Oxford, AL
I currently smoke a number of different cigars from CI, so I took a chance on 2 bundles of Torpedo #2 maduros. I'm 2/3 through the first bundle and the last cigar I smoked was the first one that I was able to finish. Until that last stick, every one burned up one side (for 2-3 inches), or the wrapper crumbled in my hand, or was so loosely packed that the whole back half flattened and collapsed, but usually a combination of two or more of the conditions. I love how they taste, and I hope the second bundle is more representative of all the glowing praise that I have been reading in the posts above and not a repeat of my first bundle nightmare.
SW of Dyer, IN
After reading many positive feedback and seeing it's the top moving brand I had to try these, my first look at these in the box and I though I was gonna break these. Loosely packed but nothing that causes concern still holds ash pretty good I've had two and I currently onto my third. It is a decent smoke but I think I'm going to stick the the Cuban wheel b2 for my everyday smoke.
RG of Hudson Falls, NY
(Flor del Todo ) is definitely the Quasimodo of the cigar world. I opened the box and thought to myself, "Man, the UPS guy must have drug these things BEHIND the truck." The wrapper looks like it was grown in Chernobyl, and the filler feels a bit loose to the touch, but man these things are a TREAT to smoke! I ordered the Churchill Maduro and though it is ugly as homemade sin, it makes a heavenly every day burner. The aroma is pleasant, and it is very flavorful with an easy draw and even burn. The ash holds together well, despite the loose feel of the filler. I'll definitely be ordering a second batch when I make some room in my humi. Great value! This is my new favorite every day smoke.
DC of Portsmouth, VA
U-G-L-Y is in my opinion the best way to sum up my first impression of these guys (Flor Del Todo). Before this recent downturn in the economy I've been spoiled in the sense that I could always afford my favorite blends. Though I consider my self lucky to still have a job my hours have been cut, so I started looking hard for a cheap alternative. I've spent the last several weeks reading review, after review to see what other people are turning to. I noticed there was a 2'fer deal on these , and knowing that they are a product of one of my favorite people in the cigar world Rolando Reyes Sr. I got a little excited. I read the many praises, and decided to pull the trigger on the churchill maduros based on the 7.2x53 size I figured I might as well maximize the offer. When they arrived I was like goodness sake man what have I done these will never see the light of day after they go deep in my humidor. The wrapper was very thick, veiny, 2-toned, and some had many sun spots while some had none. Each stick had a soft spot about midway in the stick it seemed, and finally that band is down right hideous. I said OK here we go grabbed my cutter toasted the foot and I was off to the races. The first 1/2” was what I expected then it mellowed very nicely. Through the rest of the cigar the flavor was steady and INCREDIBLE!!! Yes that right I said it incredible. You don't get many flavors like some cigars give but this cigar gives me the flavors I like best, and it delivers them in a way like no other. Very sweet sugary element on the back of the tongue and nice nuttiness through the nose is the best way I can describe that awesome taste I look for in all my cigars, and these sticks deliver it in truckloads all the way down. Now I understand, Rolando you genius you, this is 90+ rated cigar taste without all the nonsense that would other wise make it a 90+ rated cost. Please CI keep these babies in stock cause I finally found a cigar I can smoke guilt free.
RT of Norwood, OH
I received my ( Flor del Todo ) bundles today, thats pretty fast seeing I just ordered them on Saturday, so far nice packaging, each cigar is wrapped in a very colorful band, which will come off before lighting ( not into advertising my cigars, keep'em guessing ) OK the cigar is no AVO in appearance, but how many are, it has a cool sorta rustic look to it , the wrapper is smooth with a few veins ( reviewing the natural torpedo ) no biggie they still look nice, I've had more expensive cigars that didn't look this good, after cutting the tip I knew the cigar would have an easy draw lighting up was a breeze, clouds of smoke right off the hop, im digging this ( no wussy smoke here ) even burn right down to the pretty band, light gray ash with scattered black flecks, held a 1 1/2 inch ash with no problem, what I like about this cigar is,,,it doesn't taste like a cheap cigar, it has hints of light cider and nuts, not harsh at all,,,which means you can smoke these till your face hurts. No matter how you slice it this is one great cigar deal, If your like me thinking you get what you pay for and there's no way 40 cigars can be any good at $0.99 apiece you'd be wrong just like I was wrong,,,Im enjoying these cigars so much,,,you do not have to spend BIG BUCKS to get a good cigar,,,and these Flor del Todo's are proof of that. another great deal from C.I. and thanks to GONZ, and all of the other great reviews, they really do play a major part in my ordering. M.j.A.
MA of Edison, NJ
i bought these from cigar bid. I tried one last night and was greatly suprised. Great taste, nice draw- found nothing bad about them. The price was less than $1.25 a stick!
TC of Warren, MI
I found some of these at a small cigar shop and decided to pick one up. I had been eyeballing them on the website for some time due to the ridonkulous pricing. I expected it to taste like horse manure or even worse, a mexican cigar. I was blown away. I thought it started out tasting a lot like a RP Vintage Second then about halfway through it began to pick up a little spice then finished with a full flavor that left me very relaxed. I assumed it must have been a fluke since they were priced like throwaways. I went back and bought 6 more. They all have the same great taste. The burn is a little suspect but manageable. As far as the looks, well I kind of like the rough look. Reminds me of a free hand rolled. Thanks CI for the great deal. I will be buying several bundles.
CK of Sallisaw, OK
Well I just received these Churchill (7.2" x 53) cigars about a week ago. First taste was that they seemed a little green. A pretty light bodied cigar with an unusual taste. I'm having a hard time deciding if I like them or not. But I don't think i'll be ordering them again.
MK of Longmont, CO
Definitely not the most well made cigar, and definitely not the prettiest either, but also tastes a lot better than some name brand smokes that I've had. Hey! Whaddya want for a buck-a-stick???!!!!???? I'll buy 'em again!
LS of Edmonds, WA
I read the great reviews and took a chance on this budget smoke. I'm glad I did! Starting mellow & mild this stogie's flavor builds in complexity from the halfway point. These massive Churchills draw nicely and finish deliciously for over an hour of real pleasure! I'll try the Maduro next.
JG of Gales Ferry, CT
Maddie Torp #3, good construction, very tasty, good burn.
KD of Burleson, TX
for the price, fantastic. not overly complicated, but significant flavor, particularly in the 2nd half.
JH of Allentown, PA
Keeping it short, and sweet....good to go for the price. I know I shoulda let them rest for a couple of days when I got them, but I'm too impatient. The smoke was decent right outa the mail. Let them rest for a couple of days and they got better. I'm not saying these are Padrons or Padillas, but they are a good everyday smoke for sure. Thanks to the others who provided feedback on this one.
TS of Chula Vista, CA
I was looking for an affordable daily smoker to relax with after a hard days work. I read all the reviews about this stick. I'm on my 3rd one. In as few words as possible ,... The cigar is loosely packed, yet not to the point where the thing falls apart on you and the draw is effortless. It has a mild yet pleasant taste. I've had no problems with uneven burns as of yet. Considering price and value... My verdict is, "Looks like I found my new daily smoker!!!" :oD A NOTE TO C.I.: Keep these bad boys in stock and I'll keep on buying them!!!
RA of Monterey Park, CA
This one is a keeper. Flavor, burn, draw, all excellent. Great with a morning cup of coffee or an evening Scotch. Everyday smoke ? Absolutely ! Value ? The best ! Reyes does it again, and again, and again, and again...
DB of LAGUNA HILLS, CA
I just finished my 6th Todo. Although they seem a little on the ugly side, I found them to be a decent smoke. I was able to smoke them down to the last inch. Pretty smooth, not bitter and nice on the palate for a $1.25 cigar. Not my first choice for a daily smoke but very smokeable. I tend to prefer the Bahia Maduro. I will buy these again definitely. For the money, you can't go wrong. I have smoked $3 to $5 sticks that I hated.
LR of Pace, FL
Well, I'm half-way through my 2nd order of 40 and man, do these beasties attach themselves to you! I purchased the Maduros and have been pleasantly surprised how smooth they smoke and the nice aroma they exude. I believe I have found my new everyday cigar at half the price that I was paying for what I had been smoking for 5+ years ;)
LR of Pace, FL
Like many others, this is my favorite everyday cigar. I tried these early in my cigar-smoking years, and then went on to sample others in the price range in search of the best everyday cigar. You will not find a more consistent and flavorful cigar in its price range. Have come to love the strong nutmeg taste and mild-medium body. These are great off the truck, but I strongly recommend buying ahead of time and aging in your humi for 6 months or more, as trial-and-error has taught me that this strongly enhances the flavor and smoothness (duh, but worth mentioning).
SR of WAVERLY, IL
I have ordered both varieties of these sticks. The price and commentary led me to make Flor del Todo some of my first orders from CI....I really prefer the maduros to the other variety. The Maduros may not be for the ostentatious cigar collector, but they sure do taste good. What these value sticks lack in appearance and in firmness, they more than make up for in the pleasure they are to smoke. After all, I buy cigars to smoke, not to look at! Regarding the non-maduro variety.... I believe I have ordered two bundles of them. I found the color and taste to be different on the two occasions I ordered about a year apart. I enjoy a glass of wine, Pinot noir being my nectar of choice, and the non-maduros did not pair well. I cannot say hands down they are not good because I have not encountered anything comparable yet. All I can state for the record is they are not my cup of tea. Therefore I highly suggest ordering a bundle of Flor del Todo Maduros. They are a great value.... In conclusion, Flor del Todo maduros are pleasant and reliable every time, competing flavor wise above their price point, and will leave money left to explore other cigar varieties or things to pair with your smokes in your bank account. Ordering a bundles of these great smokes is a practice of common sense.
BW of GREENWOOD, SC
I am astonished at how tasty these mild-medium cigars are. I hand them out to all my friends who don't smoke regularly, and they are all able to enjoy it. Creamy, nutmeggy, delicious, and great burn!
DF of Elmhurst, IL
Extremely impressive smoke for around a buck a piece. Put a fancier band on it and charge five bucks and nobody would complain or probably know the difference. I am not familiar with the Flor del Todo brand from years past, but I have been impressed with the quality and value of the cigars produced by Renaldo Reyes (Puros Indios)....These do not have any sort of floral taste or aroma, like the ACID or other flavored smokes. However, I have already had two orders in two sizes and not a single dud in the bunch. I have paid much more for cigars that were not half as good, but I won't again as long as these are still available....
CB of Murfreesboro, TN
Can't even tell you how often I've re-ordered these - Even drove to Bethlehem when they weren't available online.. I want to say they stink so the price won't go up or they won't sell out again.. but I can't lie.. These are my "go to" cigars.. I'm not fond of the torpedo - but I LOVE the Churchill - You will not go wrong ordering these.. ENJOY!
WS of PHILLIPSBURG, NJ
Just got the order today. First one out of the wrapper was a home run. If they stay consistent, they will be in every order.
CB of MARYSVILLE, WA
Quite a pleasant surprise !! Buy some and enjoy the price; let 'em rest in your humidor for a bit, then light up and enjoy the smoke !! Gives new meaning to the phrase "win / win".
JT of Benson, NC
I'm a big fan of Puros Indios cigars and have great respect for Rolando Reyes. That said, I'm not a fan of these cigars. I bought a bundle of the churchill size and nestled them into my humidor to rest for about a week. On lighting one I expected if not greatness then goodness; I was underwhelmed. I found these to be quite mild tasting and not especially good tasting. I thought maybe I need to set these aside and come back to them later. I had one this week after maybe six months of ignoring them- I lit up and I waited and waited for the taste to balance and smooth out; I smoked it all the way down and it never delivered. I was so disappointed that not only will I not be smoking any more of them, I can't in good conscience give them away. I'm glad so many of you enjoyed them, I wish I did.
HR of ATLANTA, GA
The party may be over. These have been my favorites for a long time, but the last batch of "Natural" were labelled "Colorado", and these new ones were nothing like the Flor Del Todos I've enjoyed for years. The nutmeg that set these apart from other cigars is gone. The new ones are smoother, a little bitter, more generic. Not at all like the odd little Studebaker of a cigar that we enjoyed so much.
AP of Durham, NC
I got the number 4's in y latest order. Good smokes . I chose the maduro wrapper and find these to be very smooth smokes. Another win for CI on inexpensive but pretty darned good cigars. These have been added to the list of smokes that I will be sure to order again.
AS of Humbird, WI
I was disappointed with the new "Colorado" replacing the nutmeg-ish "Natural", but I have to say that it is smoother, and very good on its own terms. I do miss the nutmeg though. The new one is a different cigar.
AP of Durham, NC
I have enjoyed these cigars for several years now and am never disappointed. Just wish the maduros would stay in stock more....
JR of HELENA, AL
I started smoking the FdT brand several years ago. But for the last year, I was lured away by the promises of other modestly priced bundles offered by CI and other online cigars retailers. More often then not, they failed to deliver, and some were downright awful! They are right about the creamy nutmeg taste and the clouds of fraqrant smoke the FdT produces. This is not a complex, heavy blend like you find on the more expensive, premium cigars. While I keep some more expensive, more complex cigars on hand, I find I'm reaching for the FdT more often then not. You just can't smoke a premium cigar several times a day, but the mellow blend of the FdT is just right for an everyday cigar.
DH of SILVER SPRING, MD
Probably the best cheap cigar on this site. I smoked a bundle before writing this review. Decent burn, sometimes uneven. Never fell apart. The last half the cigar is actually good. For an everyday smoke, this is as good as it gets.
FD of Brick, NJ
Was very pleased with these sticks. Considering the price! As good as any 10 to 15 dollar smoke I've ever got! I got the maduro's and dont think 40 will be enough. Even the wife smoked one last night and loved it. Will be keeping alot of these hidden around the garage from her. Great Smoke!
JB of Santa Monica, CA
My favorite daily smoke for about a year! I would REALLY LIKE TO ORDER SOME MORE! Come guys let's get on the "stick" and get them in! LOL!
LR of Pace, FL
I used to love these as my everyday cigar but on my last order the Churchill's were on back-order so I went with the Toro's. For whatever reason these had a somewhat harsh taste....
TM of Litchfield, MI
Very loose packed and fast burning cigar. OK for cold weather-quick smokes. Not so good for a round of golf.
TB of DAKOTA DUNES, SD
Great cigar, even better price!
FD of Brick, NJ
Best cigar for the money that I have found anywhere. I smoke several per day, so the Rocky Patels or others can run up a bill. This is a great everyday cigar.
TD of SOUTH BEND, IN
....I received an email and checked out this site. I am glad I did. Out of the package first day this cigar was fine. I wish I could still afford the Cohiba's and Partagas as a daily smoke, but that is life. This is a great cigar for the money and will be a staple for me. Glad that the competition pushed me over here.
JM of Simi Valley, CA
My daily smoke, and I love it. You can smoke more expensive (and I do) but when your throwing some steaks on the grill and opening up a bottle of wine, it's hard to beat this smoke. I have ordered over 200 of these over the last couple years and I keep coming back time and time again.
JS of Gilbert, AZ
Just an average cigar. Not bad considering the price.
DD of Reddick, IL
Hard to keep lit, canoeing, hard to re light. Wrapper falls off almost immediately after lighting. Threw the rest away.
CM of Henderson, NV
great shorties will keep them stocked in the humidor
VG of Elk Grove, CA
Several sticks arrived blowted at the Tip. However nice smooth earthy taste on the good ones. bougth the two fer so felt good about the price. Good everyday smoke.

This used to be one of my monthly shipment (larger Topedo in Maduro) this was my main daily cigar....Medium, maybe slightly towards bold, but a real solid cigar, espescially for the money. You couldn't beat it...Too bad its no longer around, but the smaller ones are OK. I believe the size of a cigar also lends itself to the taste. There just isn't the variety out there for a real stable cigar at a buck five.............

This cigar has been around forever, literally as long as my cigar memory serves me. And I can remember the first time I picked up this, um, beauty in about '98, it was a grimy, dry looking blah that tasted just like it looked. I'm not sure who schnookered me into smoking it, but I called it like it smoked and went on referring to it as "flor del doo-doo". Ya know what I mean, like doggie-doo-doo. Yuck. Then, sometime over the last 2 years, someone actually went out there and revived this beast, oh wait, stand by.....yup, that was us, Cigars International. Not sure what we were thinking at the time, because you really had to pick this one out of the trash heap. But, the reincarnation turned out to be right up my alley.

It took me awhile to actually reach in a light one up, but let me mention the price - less than $1 per stick. OK, twist my arm, it's worth trying for a buck. This latest product is made by Rolando Reyes' Puros Indios factory in Honduras of Brazilian, Dominican, and Nicaraguan filler and a dark Ecuadorian wrapper. Funny since it's made in Honduras, there's no leaves from Honduras. It says "mixed fillers". Hmm, perhaps I should be skeptical but I'm not going to pass judgement until I smoke it.

A quick snip and we're off. It's a little bumpy around the edges, but the wrapper itself is quite smooth. The clipped head doesn't reveal any mixed fillers, and after lighting up and drawing on it a few strokes, it doesn't leave any annoying leaf bits caught up in my teeth. In fact, I didn't get one. The first draw is quite pleasant, mild and creamy, no bite, no spices, just smooth. Hmm, a head-scratcher already. After just a few draws, it really opens up. Look out if anyone is standing behind you because they're going to get blasted with smoke. Just ask my buddy Ranger who happened to be down-wind on my deck when we first tried these. It's funny that he seems to be around every time I'm trying cheapie cigars. He doesn't seem to mind, and even after the last few years that we've been smoking together, I doubt he'd know the difference anyway. OK, back to the job at hand.

So far, a very nice surprise. Let me try to explain the flavor. No aftertaste, none, nada, don't look for one. My tonsils tell me it's mild to medium bodied, a bit up there on the strength scale, just enough to give you a little rush. Pleasant and very creamy with the slightest hint of beer-nuts on the wrapper (oh, never mind, I just threw back some Planters.) Just like those Miller Lite commercials (have you seen the ones in the fountain? wow!) this tastes great and lends itself to the perfect non-intrusive any-time smoke. The first half is incredibly consistent. Ranger won the smoke-ring contest, damn cigarette smokers make it look easy. The smoke is so plentiful that it was hovering in this tree overhead, pretty neat. The ash holds firm and solid for nearly an inch before flaking off. No signs of mixed fill whatsoever, so far I think that's a misprint, or the factory goofed.

The second half spices up a bit and it starts burning a little warmer. The finish is a little sharper and dryer as the cigar continues to fire out an awesome burn. There are a few spots that get a little soft and mushy, it's loosely packed and if you like chewing on your cigars, you'll probably take a bite right out of it. Yet the construction is superb, holds together well and clearly doesn't wear the mixed-filler label. This one's for real.

At about 45 minutes per cigar, not bad for the Toro size, we smoked a couple more that night. I expected a burnt, cottony, choked up throat the next morning. Nope, not a bit. We smoked each one down to about 2 inches, then it got a bit hot and tossed them. Heck, for a buck, it'd be worth smoking down half way, you get your money's worth after just a few draws.

You'll be shocked, believe me, I'm floored by how good this cigar is. Since that weekend on my deck 4 weeks ago, I've nearly finished the second bundle and am going to pick up a few more. It's a I-could-really-use-a-cigar-right-now cigar. This originally struck me as a mindless, riding-the-tractor, cigar. But, it turned out better. If you do decide to mow the lawn with it, you'll find yourself taking a couple of extra laps just to light up another and enjoy a few more strokes on this one. It's not the prettiest cigar, one you'll probably not hand out at the Christmas Ball, but overall it's a nice everyday cigar.

This sure ain't the Flor del Doo-Doo of old. It's the highest quality cheapie I've smoked in a long time. Light'm up fellas.

Rolando Reyes, Sr. is tireless. The man is over 80 years old, widely acknowledged as the best blender alive, and he still works like a horse day in and day out. Actually, it's probably more like night in, night out: his work habits are legendary - he sleeps during the day, wakes up late in the afternoon, and then stays up the entire night sorting cigars until rollers arrive the next morning. He inspects every cigar rolled in his factory. Yes, every single cigar. Amazing. Most people think that's some made up myth....but it ain't. My last trip to Honduras in July, I popped in on his factory late in the afternoon thinking he'd be up. Unfortunately he was asleep in his house, which sits about a pitching-wedge away from the front door of the factory. They woke him - damn, I felt bad about that - and we sat down at his kitchen table. On the table were 3 things - a pile of unbanded cigars, a bottle of rum, and a giant box of Twinkies. Twinkies! Forget that Atkins diet or South Beach crap - the "Rolando diet" is my kind of regimen. Rolando is an old school, no-nonsense guy who isn't really into bells and whistles. Which is probably why you don't see any glitzy packaging, slick marketing, or tons of publicity on his flagship Puros Indios or Cuba Aliados brands. But to me, "no pretense" is exactly what Flor del Todo is about, so while it's certainly not his finest blend it's a tidy personification of the man himself.

So on to the cigar: at first glance, Flor del Todo is certainly not winning any beauty contests. It is however one of Keith's top five knockaround cigars...cigars I burn when I'm putzing around the yard, on long car rides, playing golf, stuff like that. The Churchill is a meaty 7.25"x53 vitola packed to the brim with fillers. It feels like there's 2 cigars worth of tobaccos in here; in fact it takes a solid hour+ to burn it down to my knuckles. The draw is not effortless - not that it's a tough draw - but there's a little bit of resistance to it which I especially like in a knockaround cigar like this. The wrapper is a thick, double-fermented Ecuadorian leaf with a sort of marbelized appearance and rustic, chewy texture to it. The body is medium, the flavor smooth, slightly creamy, a little gritty on the tongue with a nutty character and pleasant aroma. The finish is very clean and crisp.

I give this one extra credit in the ratings category because of the enormous value - each stick costs around a buck each and that my friend, is unbeatable.
