Palma Real

An inexpensive treat, courtesy of Jose Blanco.

Jose Blanco has crafted some real quality, sleeper cigar blends, and his Palma Real is a classic mild Dominican cigar. At CI prices, Palma Real is steal. Filled to the brim with Dominican grown long leaf tobaccos covered in a Connecticut-Ecuador wrapper, this blend combines to produce a surprisingly tasty profile along with a pleasant aroma and consistent taste and even burn time after time. A hidden gem at CI.

my go to
Palma real has been a long time resident of my stash. Dollar for dollar they are certainly a bargain. Top shelf ? Not really, but consistant in construction and quality...always a decent smoke.

Palma Real
This is my everyday cigar when I'm on the tractor or fishing. Can't beat the price. You'll need to put them in the humidor for quite some time -- they came shipped very dry, so expect that and order well before you'll need them.

Decent cigar
Well made with long fillers. My only complaint with these is a little inconsistency with taste and burn. These were a bargain before the price hike. There are better sticks for a little more. Overall, a decent smoke. Worth a try.

Decent everyday cigar
This is a mild cigar with razor sharp burn that lasts about 45-50 minutes. Not much to say about taste but it's a decent everyday smoke at a good price. Would I buy it again? Probably not. There are better options even at this low price point.

For the price....
I'm always on the look out for the cheap every-day'er that doesn't break the bank and this one fits the bill quite nicely. A little sharp in the beginning but seems to get better the shorter it gets. Bottom line, yeah I'll probably buy these again...I just won't be excited about it.

Nice flavor for low price
These Palmas usually have a good flavor, a good burn, a good draw, and a low price. There's an occasional exception, but at these prices I can live with it.

Great deal on an everyday smoke
You can't beat the quality for the price. A good flavor, mild to medium stick with an even draw and good construction. They are even better after a couple weeks in the humidor.

The cigar will hold up
The cigar will hold up during your golf game, stays lit and the tastes is great up to the last puff. Not that expense so give your golf buddies a cigar to enjoy too.

A move to a real cigar, a.k.a. Palma Real!
My cigar of choice had previously been Garcia y Vega's English Corona, a mild, inexpensive smoke. The Palma Reals have whole tobacco filler leaves, are mild and are about the same price. This was my first purchase and I am not disappointed. P.S., Your cigar copy writer must have sold used cars at one time, his descriptions of cigars are humorous. Caddyman

palma real are a go to for me. i have been using them for casual smokes for 15 or so years. i don't think they have changed and i like 'em fine. they are mild and consistent. i use others and sometimes i want a stronger or more flavorful cigar, but for me, every day that passes will burn up several of these guys. they're just good !

Average Daily Smoke
Great daily cigar if not for so many duds, some hard to draw, others burn real hot with little smoke in the draw and yet others with obvious stems ( the lighted tip is +/- one inch in length and hard to break off. The good ones are a great smoke for the price. Consistent quality is lacking.

Palma Real - Great Cigar, Great Price
I smoke 8-10 cigars per day. I look for inexpensive long filler cigars that I can enjoy without spitting tobacco out of my mouth that happens with short filler cigars. The Palma Real is a good mild cigar, well constructed, long filler. I enjoy them all day long, and appreciate the CI service and price.

My Choice for a Golf Course Smoke
Smoking a cigar on the golf course is relaxing and pleasurable, but you don't have the luxury of lounging back and slowly enjoying the smoke. I'm likely to drop it, scrape it, get it wet and constant relighting is a given. For that reason, my Scottish blood will not allow me to take an expensive cigar out with my golf clubs. I first learned of Palma Real at a golf course in Oklahoma where that was the favorite of the Head Pro. Good points of the cigar: mild, easy drawing, nice taste and inexpensive. Minor minuses: wrappers tend to unwrap sometimes and taste is not always uniform. Recently, I got the Toro size - which is about right for 9 - 13 holes of golf. Next time I'm going back to the Palma Real Churchill size which is good for 13 -18 holes. It's also my choice for smoking on the lawn tractor and other outdoor work where one is likely to "mistreat" the smoke. Save the Premium smokes for your rocking chair on your BIG DECK.

Palma Real Presaidente
On line service consistently great. Quality of cigars not. Batches vary on dryness as 1/3 of orders over the years come unwrapped while smoking.

Good golf course cigar.
This is a good cigar for the price. I have been purchasing them for quite some time. Great cigar for the golf course. Love the 2-fer one.

Best buck a stick there is.
Palma Real is an excellent well made long filler smoke. This is my everyday go to cigar. Better than many at twice the price. Please keep them both cheap and in stock.
Customer Testimonials
Thought it was a nice tasting Dominican, but had a lot of problem with the wrappers coming apart mid cigar even though I had kept them in a humidor.
This smoke is one for all time. Smooth, tasty, terrific burn. Unbelievable for an every day burn. Terrific with wine!
For the money, not a bad smoke. For the most part they have an even burn (it is a $1.20 cigar after all), good flavor, and great price. I've been smoking Palma's for years as an everyday smoke and I will continue to do so.
Nice cheap cigar, I purchased this in a pack just for hand out cigars and I ran out of good ones. I was thinking I was gonna get a horrible burning, horrible tasting cigar but it wasn't bad. If someone is looking for a cheap one I recommend you try this!
Got these on a 2fer deal and am very happy with the purchase. The CI description was dead-on, smooth & mild. Followed the advice of other reviewers by aging in a humi, hope they mellow and sweeten as they have said. Consistency of construction may be an issue, however. Most have been rolled tightly with a good draw but, occasionally, I find one that is a bit loose with a dry & brittle wrapper. But, Hey, for less than a buck a stick, I ainta gonna complain! Thanks CI.
I can't go back and update my original review, but I wanted to add an update. These Palma-Robusto's have been sitting in my humidor aging as I smoke them. I must admit that as they sit, they become increasingly smooth and almost creamy. I wouldn't dare compare them to the creaminess of actual factual cubans. For me, as they have aged, they have taken on the smooth creamy vanilla notes I remember from those marvelous cuban cigars I smoked while in the Caribbean cruising. If every bundle is like this, you can DEFINITELY bet I'll be buying another two fer and seasoning/aging them the same way. They have sat mostly by themselves in the humidor with the spanish cedar liners from other cigars I've bought in tubes that have been enjoyed already. Just wanted to let y'all know, these have moved up from knock around cigars in my humidor to actual decent sticks I'll reach for when I'm in the mood for something smooth/mellow/creamy. Nothing dramatic about the flavor, but very even and impressive. They've been seasoning about 6 months (maybe?) and are damn near perfect. Didn't want my original review to reflect incorrectly on these (becoming) absolutely awesome sticks.
Good good tasting everyday smoke
Awesome knock around cigars. I split these with a friend. Not something you'd debut to "show off" but a great easy smoke when you have a hankerin' for a cigar but don't have the hour plus to enjoy a 'name brand' beauty. I haven't had any problems with uneven burning, and the flavor seems pretty consistent across the bundle (I'm probably 15 into the bundle of 25). I'd get these again, but I might try the Palma Real-Maduro wrapper next time. . . Nothing tremendus about these, going into it, I knew less than a buck a stick I wasn't getting Rocky Patel 90+ sticks, I am impressed with what showed up though.
This is a mild cigar that's loaded with flavor, and with the 2 fer can't beat this stick with a...well, you just can't! Depending on the size, it's like 99 cent to $1.40 each. Everytime I see these prices, I smile...and think about the time I spent spending $8.00 each for the same cigar in a store. Thanks CI!
I got the robustos. Construction, burn, taste, aroma...solid, good. What more can ya ask from some rotten, rolled up leaves? Yep on Palma Real. Likee.
I picked up a five pack of the torpedo's for about a dollar a stick. I would say it is a solid medium flavored cigar that has a simple, straightforward, classic tobacco flavor. It's not great or complex but I prefer it much better than other one dollar sticks out there like Brocatus. The wrappers are a little loose but these aren't high end sticks so it's not a huge complaint. If your on a budget and like medium bodied cigars these would be worth trying.
I agree with most of the other "Fans".This light Dominican cigar is a "sleeper"! I paid about one $ a stick.In a "Blind Taste Test",this cigar would hold it's own with many 5 to 6 $ cigars.The wrapper is a light Connecticut,the filler Dominican,propable "Ligero". The burn was perfect,from start to finish.Mild,with black coffe,and dark un-sweetened chocolate.Only complaint,the cigar is a little "soft" to the touch.This did not lead to any burn,ash,or flavor issues,and I "re-lit" after taking a phone call! I'm glad I have a few left.I enjoyed the over 1 hour smoke.
The Palma Real is a great purchase for the money, and smokes like one double in price. The only thing I would do different, is not order the 6 X 60. Regardless of how long I keep them in my well maintained humidor, there seems to be a problem with the outter leaf breaking after 3 inches down. It would appear that they are packed to tight, even though the draw is smooth. However, if all they had were the fat boys, I would still make another order. I've found a way to bond a broken leaf, which allows me to smoke any of them that break. I have a timer that I use on every cigar I smoke, and this 6 X 60 will give you an hour of pleasure. Give them a try, and I doubt that you will be sorry.
Nice construction, smooth draw, mild but not bland. Under $2 a stick. Impressive cigar! I'll be adding this to my mix of daily smokes.
Nice construction and even burn. For a mild cigar it has good flavor. Great morning smoke. I normally do not care for a mild cigar but Palma Real is quite a nice smoke.
The only thing I dislike about this stick is that the bands are glued down too well. You will want to remove the band because this is one you will want to smoke to the nub!Think of an AVO at five dollars off...
Just received my order of Palma Real yesterday. Burned one right out of the shipping box. Wrapper more veined than your high end cigars, but that was expected, the construction was very good. The draw is one of the smoothest and easiest draws I can remember of late. Mild and creamy, this is way better than the Liga IV I also received in the same shipment. As a filler for my humidor and a stogie to introduce a newbie or novice to I would not hesitate handing this out (and for this purpose it will serve well in my humidor), as for burning one for myself if I got nothing better to do and in a mood for a mild one - not bad.
The Palma Real is, I believe, a mild, almost bland, inexpensive cigar that is perfect for those who really want a mild cigar with, perhaps, their morning coffee. I like a wee bit more flavour, but I do keep a few of these in the box. Certainly worth the money.
What happened? I’ve smoked Palma Real for 10 years and the last two bundles have been light, loosely rolled and burn unevenly.
I have finally found my "daily smoke". (Palma Real) This cigar is one of the best deals I have found so far. It is well constructed, it has a smooth draw, and it is great all the way down to the end. I am on my 10th cigar out of the bundle and have yet to run into a bad one yet. Thanks CI!
Palma Real was the surprize winner among the "Sorry You Missed It Sampler." A $1 stick that smoked smooth and creamy and was as enjoyable as any of the cigars at 15X this price.
Once again, the staff at CI have described this cigar (Palma Real) perfectly. I received the lonsdale bundles and have truly enjoyed this smoke. Thanks again CI for bringing enjoyment to our lives! Keep up the good work.
Very nice, very mild, and very smooth. Palma Real is an excellent deal that always provides a consistent smoke.
This is far and away the best cigar for the money on earth.
