ML of San Jose, CA
“excellent...this is a very consistant cigar (Victor Sinclair Vintage). great flavor, draw, and burn.”
SW of Memphis, TN
“Enjoyed the VS CT's in the past, so I gave the Toro (Victor Sinclair Vintage) a try. Easy draw, medium body, clouds of smoke and smooth tobacco flavor. Disappointed when I had to discard the last half inch!”
FL of Greenlawn, NY
“Great Cigar (Victor Sinclair Vintage)... Smooth,Flavorful My new favorite. Even my wife likes the aroma of this one. I'm ordering my 3rd box.”
GW of Byesville, OH
“Love the rich flavor yet smooth touch to the palate. A real winner (Victor Sinclair Vintage). Ordering boxes # 7 & 8.”
GW of Orlando, FL
“Very Good Quality. I've smoked cigars at 3 times the price and these (Victor Sinclair Vintage) are just a good!”
JH of Greenville, SC
“What can I say, this one is a winner (Victor Sinclair Vintage)! I like most all of the V.S. cigars I have smoked, however, this is my all time Fav! with the series 55 sun grown a close second. It has a nice chocolatey smooth taste, I try to keep my humi stocked with them as an every day smoke... they just don't last.”
TU of FLOYDS KNOBS, IN
“What can i say...these "Victor Sinclair Vintage" cigars smoke like a dream. Smooth...chocolatey...hints of coffee and cream even vanilla, a real blast. They draw easily and burn consistently through out the entire stick. Also you can't go wrong with the sampler. Each size offers a subtle difference in taste. Hey guy's try them and see what you think, trust me you wont be disappointed.”
VB of San Francisco, CA
“I've been smoking these for years. My golf buddies count on me to bring the smokes. When they tried these for the first time they thought I paid big bucks for them. I let them think I did! For about 2 bucks a stick, it pays off at the at the clubhouse after our round. I never buy the beer after a round of golf. They all feel like I was the generous guy every time! Thanks CI for saving me big bucks on expensive beer, LOL!!”
ML of San Jose, CA
“I took advantage of weekly special vintage select and smoked several of them , have to say a little dissapointed. soft, quick burn and a little harsh. perhaps a little more time in the humidor will help. However, I also smoked VS connecticut yankee and find that an excellent cigar. I think I will stay with them.”
DG of Ft.lauderdale, FL
“Just got my my box of Victor Sinclair Vintage. WOW!! What a great smoke. They came the day before Thankgsgiving. Everyone enjoyed them. Im putting this smoke on my favorites' list. Thanks again!!”
JP of SS. Toms River, NJ
“Wanted to try these for some time (Victor Sinclair Vintage), so when they came up on special, thought I'd dive in. And glad I did. Smokey, creamy, cocoa goodness cradled in a beautiful box-pressed chocolately wrapper. Very impressed with the quality of the stick without the big-stick price. "That's a keeper...!"”
PS of Folsom, CA
“I always keep these (Victor Sinclair Vintage) in stock in my humidor. They have long been a favorite and the perfect any time of day cigar. Smooth, no spice, and creamy chocolate-expresso flavor hits the spot every time. Mild enough to be handed out to a beginner, too! My Conductors love the smell of them in the locomotive cab, some even mooch one off of me on our train runs!”
SL of Elmwood Park, IL
“I received a Lonsdale size VS Vintage Select at CigarFest '09. I tried it this morning with my morning cuppa. The pre-light aroma was, well, 'different'. Unusual; don't know exactly how to describe it. I wasn't looking forward to what I got! Really a very nice cigar, if a bit rough looking. Absolutely even burn, excellent draw and a firm, non-flaking ash. I usually smoke cigars that are a bit bigger than the Lonsdale, so I'll buy some of the Vintage Select in a larger ring. This is a good cigar. The fact that it's inexpensive is just icing on the cake.”
MC of MLeesburg, VA
“Without getting too fancy, this is one of my favs (Victor Sinclair Vintage). A great smooth full flavor w/out harshness. Great for a novice smoker yet appreciated by the savant. One of the best smokes for the price. I'm stocking up before they get spensive again.”
BC of Flemington, NJ
“I can't say enough about my new favorite cigar (Victor Sinclair Vintage). This is an excellent everyday smoke, with even, smooth-burning long-fillers that produce a sturdy ash. Mild to medium in body, these maduros have wonderful flavor from tip to nub, so you'll want to smoke all the way down. They're also a handsome stogie, cello wrapped with three bands, so you're never ashamed to pass them out to clients. They certainly look more expensive than two bucks per stick!”
SW of Atlanta, GA
“A friend and I got together on a box plus the sampler bundle a few months back (Victor Sinclair Vintage). At first these were a nice rich and smooth smoke with a good draw and even burn. After leaving some in my humidore for three or so months I came back to them again. Wow! The richness multiplied very nicely to the extent that I enjoy them only slightly less than my current favorite, the Carlos Torano Exodous 1959. Leave them in your humi for a couple of months and see what I mean.”
BN of Placerville, CA
“One of my good friend's Uncle used to distribute VS Bohemians before the dyed wrappers came out. I fell in love with them almost immediately, a truly invididual smoke. Regal... tasty, and full-bodied it is can contend with any of the heavy-hitters and still make a mark. It is in my cabinet. The torpedo is a dark oily wrapper with nutty accents, very fragrant and kinda grainy finish with ahint of leather.. it is one of my all time faves! My Rate: 92”
CS of Southern, CA
“I tried this cigar when it went on special and after doing so I had to give one to each of my buddies at the cigar club here on camp (Victor Sinclair Vintage). Not one person had anything bad to say about this cigar. AWESOME was most of the guys reaction. Great taste, good draw, nice moist wrapper, wonderful smell, again an awesome cigar. Your staff rated this cigar as a 88, I think it should be atleast a 90 if not higher.”
LL of Kabul, Afghanistan, AE
“I just got my Victor Sinclair Vintage on 10/9 and i've already smoked five of them.I think it's a great smoke at a great price. thanks”
JL of El Mirage, AZ
“I've commented on these before, when I was first getting into cigars, but years later, I still come back. Is it a Cohiba? No, but it is a well constructed cigar with a beautiful box press, even burn, and consistent (and for the price complex) flavor. They also mature wonderfully in the humidor. You can't really go wrong with any of the Victor Sinclair smokes. Give em a shot.”
RS of Warwick, RI
“Perhaps my comments are at the bottom of the heap but this cigar for the price is at the top! (Victor Sinclair Vintage) No shame here! I'm a bargain shopper when it comes to cigars. I try to find the best deal on this web site (my FAV!) and then exploit it to the best of my ability! Alright! Here is one of them! I am happy to report that I was very suprised at the pleasant start on this cigar BUT as we all know it's the finish that makes it or breaks it. This thing had an easy draw and was smooth to the very end! Oh yea! The very end! Burn your lips end! My pals at work say I have yet to turn them on to a loser. A well constructed cigar, huge ash, and smooth from start to finish! That's my story and I'm stickin to it! Enjoy!”
SN of Napa, CA
“I have been smoking cigars for over 13 years, and for the first time, I just bought some cigars from Cigars International, as the deals and the way the web-site is put together make it easy to determine what I might like. After reading the reviews on the Victor Sinclair Vintage I thought I'd give it a try. This is really a wonderful cigar. It looks good, and draws, burns and Tasts GREAT! I like the box press look of the torpedo, and the 3 bands give the cigar a classy look. No harshness, lots of flavor and clouds of smoke. What more do you need in a cigar? Regardless of the great price, this is a excellent smoke! I want to smoke what tastes great and is a good value. This cigar has it all! Buy some, you will be happy you did. ”
TC of Murrieta, CA
“Allow me be as blunt and brutally honest. I took a chance on this cigar, only after convincing my buddy to split a box with me. Upon its arrival, I was skeptical...the band looked cheap, and the cigar didn't look like much. And then I lit one up. Wow. 200 plus Victor Sinclair Vintage Selects later, I can tell you that I only ran across 2 poss. 3 sticks that tasted bad, or burned mediocre. For under $2 a stick...that is some pretty freakin’ great odds, if you ask me. This is a solid staple to stock the humidor with, and it has become my "everyday" cigar. "Highly recommend".”
AN of Key West, FL
“I just finished the Vintage Select "A" -- an 8-inch monster that nonetheless kept me occupied right down til the coal reached my lips -- almost 2 hours later! Smoother than the regular Serie 55 Maduro, this hummer has a natural sweetness and an easy draw from the very start. Even burn, plenty of smoke... what's not to like?”
LL of FPO, AP
“The UPS truck pulled away from the curb 15 minutes ago but I couldn't wait to try my most recent purchase. Trust me, the mazos of 20 presidente are EXCELLENT, right out of the cold package. If you enjoy a mild cigar, lots of smoke, this is a great cigar. I'm not a big maduro fan and when CI offered these recently on their daily deal I bought 2 mazos blind. Best buy I have made in a long time. You WILL enjoy these if you are a mild fan. I'm now on my way to buy more, at the higher price, before they are all gone. Good luck if you hesitate. ”
LH of Alexandria, VA
“Wow, is about all I need to say these babies are just simply awsome for the buck. I was very pleasantly surprised when i picked these beauties out with my Fathers Day gift cetificate, so creamy, earthy and elegant, they burn about perfectly too. Highly recommended to all.”
L of FRidgecrest, CA
“I picked my first box up (Victor Sinclair Vintage) on the bid site a few weeks back and tried one this weekend. I can't believe I got such a nice cigar for such a low price. I'll be setting a couple of boxes a side, at two bucks a stick, you can't go wrong, for a buck a stick on the bid site, well, need I say more. I'm not a box pressed fan, but these are worth it in my mind.”
VP of Olympia, WA
“These cigars are absolutely amazing (VS Vintage Selects) I got mine in the lonsdale size and these things nver get too hot, they have a ease of draw that I don't have in some of my more expensive puros. And the taste...!!?? I get the sweet nunces, the mild peppery taste and then it changes into this wonderful chewy, meaty chocolatey aroma and as the smoke gets to my pallate, I just tilt my head back, look at the sky, and believe that these must be sent down to us from the heavens for all of us to enjoy. There is not one Victor Sinclair that I have had yet that gave me any other impression other than that these are some highly superior smokes. I would recommend that you get as many of these as possible because once this box is gone, I may be tripilingmy order or even more!! Guys, just keep making this cigar and you will have a customer for life. By the way, your guys'shipping is awesome!! I placed an order on a Thursday afternoon and had it before dinner the next day. You guys ROCK!!!”
MS of Avon, NY
“For the price this is the best morning cigar around and yes, milk chocolate in the morning with a cup of joe, just cannot go wrong...Victor Sinclair Vintage Torp.....”
LP of Bakersfield, CA
“Bought a bundle of these. Flavor is unremarkable, not offensive. Hey what do you want for a bundle of 20 @ $39.99? The caliber is awkward and looks comical as one smokes. It is too thick, boxy, and big. ..and I like large gauge cigars and box pressed! Good knock around cigar while working, not for quality smoke time.”
MS of Bethlehem, PA
“These are one of my all time favorite cigars. Smooth, creamy, medium hints of chocolate and coffee. Just the thing I light up in the evening after dessert. Goes down like a great cup of cappucino coffee!”
St of eve LeesonChicago, IL
“Tons of rich flavor, yet medium in body, Nice construction and good burn. Hints of leather and coffee with a slightly sweet tasting wrapper. A top shelf smoke with a bottom shelf price. I'd buy it again.”

Victor Sinclair Vintage Select

Posted by Steve R
If there’s one thing I love, it’s a super dark, super smooth, super oily box-pressed cigar. Among my favorites are the Torano Exodus, Gurkha Regent and Nester Reserve. Slow-burning, densely packed, hefty handmades filled with chocolatey goodness. Victor Sinclair of the Dominican Republic has their own version of dark, box-pressed beauties called the Vintage Select. Truth be told, this is a cigar we stopped carrying a couple of years ago due to slow sales. At the time it was rivaling the success of Bohemian and Serie ‘55’ – a tall task. Regardless, it was sad to see this cigar removed from our shelves, because it really is a quality smoke. But, to my delight, the big guy recently landed a sweet deal allowing us to re-introduce this line at over 50% off our original retails. Sweet, chocolatey goodness!

It’s safe to say the quality and consistency of Victor Sinclair cigars are top-notch, and the Vintage Select is no exception. The other day we received a small shipment of Torpedos, which has already sold out, but I managed to score one of the boxes. (Don’t worry, more are arriving any day now) Anyway, I’ve since smoked close to half the box, and every single cigar was just like the last. Each is beautifully constructed using a silky Brazilian Maduro wrapper and a hefty blend of Cuban-seed Dominican tobaccos, including a generous helping of Dominican Olor. This mixture makes for an extraordinary assortment of flavors. The wrapper has a naturally fermented sweetness that’s subtle but nice, while the fillers offer a robust character that hints at roasted coffee, with an underlying rich creaminess. The aftertaste is long and pleasant, leaving a dark, espresso-like flavor on my palate. Incredibly smooth right up to the nub, it ends with a velvety, full-flavored finish. Tasty. It’s not full-bodied, but boy is it satisfying.

The Vintage Select will please just about anyone. No spice, harshness or dizzy-spells, just a smooth, rich, flavorful cigar that maxes out a medium-bodied. I really hope this cigar does better this time around – it deserves it, easily.

For some reason, this review took an extensive amount of "research"...

Monday - "ok, Bob E. from Wyomissing, PA said that I need light up one of these Victor Sinclair Vintage Selects, haven't had one for a while, but that was when it was a pricey jobbie.  Whoah, not bad, easy draw, good looking box press, fires up easily, this is primed for a Gonz's Pick."

Tuesday - "ok, one more VS Vintage Select that tickles my fancy, and I'm making it a Gonz's Pick.  Yum, yum, damn that's too deelish to quit, wow I nubbed that one fast.  Maybe one more to make sure."

Wednesday - "I have to play hoops with the CI team tonight, and I can't let a cigar slow down my prowess on the court, just a quick few puffs on a VS squared....whoah I nubbed that fast!"

Thursday - "I'm ready to write this review, I can get inspired if I just light up one more Vintage Select.  Doh, my water bill is 3 weeks overdue, crapola!  2 Vintage Selects later and the bills are paid."

Friday at 6:31pm - "Finally, just a little peace and quiet time!  Let me put my phone on "Do Not Disturb" and the "Go Away!" sign on my door."

Seriously, I'm a 1/2 box into this cigar and I can't get enough of it.  It's been consistent and creamily delicious all along the way that I simply can't put it down once I start smoking it.  I've asked other guys around the office and they've said things like "nice" or "not bad" or "surprising" or "never had one" and while I'll say that it's perhaps not something to do cartwheels over (not that I could anyway), but it definitely deserves a good ol' fashioned "Dude, you gotta try this!".  Plus, I think my brain is so fixated on price that my flavor expectations fall in line.  For example, if a Fuente Opus X cost $3.00 a stick, I'd probably say "wow! great cigar."  But, at $30 a stick, my reaction is "ehh, not bad".  Seriously, I'm not sure if you guys are the same, but give me value and I'll give it a fair chance.  Well at $2 and a few pennies per stick for the Vintage Select, they're so damn good that I'd welcome anyway to prove that there's a better quality to price ratio cigar out there.

The sharply box-pressed nature of the cigar makes it unique, and that gets me nervous sometimes with the draw.  Not so here, I find the draw effortless, an expertly rolled cigar.  The flavor profile is uniform throughout the cigar, but hey, it's summertime, and I don't need a hot rollercoaster screwing up my ketchup and chili covered hotdog.  Mild to slightly medium in body the smoke is rich yet light with a creaminess (which is almost buttery) and subtlety that doesn't linger on the tastebuds.  Well constructed the speckled gray ash will hang appropriately. 

A well made smoke that will have you dragging for more.  I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar and I'm going back for more.  A perfect mid-summer special.

Light'em up,

- Gonz
