Customer Reviews of “Don Diego”
I just love the Don Diego coronas. My everyday cigar. Mild but loaded with flavor. Great draw and always an even burn. Anyone who likes Macanudos will love these sticks. And at half the price of a Macanudo its a great deal.

They say this cigar is great for beginners(Don Diego), but I disagree, this cigar is just plain great. Don Diego is an amazingly smooth smoke, mild in body, but loaded with flavor, something that is pretty tough to do. Always a clean burn, very well constructed and produces nice big clouds of creamy smoke. Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed.

I love this Cigar (Don Diego), it maybe on the mild-medium side. I found this cigar to be smooth, and not at all overbearing. Could be great for someone with a smooth type palate. I would buy another. Go on Don Diego!
CC of Corona, CA
This is one of the best mild smokes out there. Along with it's even burn it's a real relaxer. When I take a break from my Cohiba Blacks I love to light up one of these babys. I know Don Diego n Cohiba Black.......It's just that some days you like to have a nice refreshing cold beer n other days you like a strong glass of Jack........

I'm Toking on a Don Diego Corona as I type this and I must say... This is definitely a smooth smoke!
JS of New Orleans, LA
Good mild cigar, and the price puts it in an everyday smokeable category. Good nutty aromatic taste and smell, REAL smooth and just smells delicious beyond what I can describe. I bought some Don Diego (Player's Club) robustos about a year ago, and they were good. However, after 10 months of rest in my humidor, they are absolutely delicious now. So SMOOTH & taste & smell delicious, a little nutty but mostly smooth creamy scents. If you have the humidor space & can be patient, throw a box of 20 of these in & wait a few months and tell me the price isn't absurd for these DD's. I'd give it an 80 off the truck, but a 90 (a high 90) with 6 months of humidor time.
JJ of Worthington, PA
Very nice smoke. I am a big fan of the mild/medium cigars and decided to give this one a try and was pleasantly surprised on how well it smoked and tasted. Nice creamy flavor with a bit of spice/woodsy flavors. For the price this is a huge winner in my books!
JS of Arlington, TX
Great mild cigar. Even burn and nice easy draw. Good way for someone getting started in cigars. Will be purchasing again.
BD of YORBA LINDA, CA
This is my all time favorite cigar! Great flavor! Quality smoke! For the price they are worth it! James in Louisiana
WR of Pineville, LA
Simply awesome stick, even slow burn to the nub, using a. 9mm punch the draw is very smooth. For the price it's an everyday jewel.

Don Diego

Posted by Steve R
Don Diego is one of those names that’s become synonymous with ‘mild’. It’s a go-to brand for beginners – they know the name, it’s easy to say and you’ll find it in just about any cigar shop across the country. They’re consistent, well-made and make for an easy introduction to the wonderful world of premium handmade cigars. Heck, one of the first cigars I ever had was a Don Diego, given to me by a friend’s father. It was good. 40+ years in the cigar-making business should account for a good smoke.

It’s safe to say Don Diego cigars are made well. I can’t recall receiving complaints about the quality or construction of this brand. It’s the recipient of numerous favorable ratings from various cigar magazines and commands prices anywhere from $4 to $7 per stick (well, not at CI). Holding the cigar in my hand, a hefty 6”x50 Grande, I can easily agree with these statistics. A sweet, cedary aroma works hand in hand with a light, vein-free wrapper to scream, “Pick me, I’m mild!” to passersby. And mild it is. Smooth, mild and crisp. Not bad, especially if you’re new to cigars, or the exact opposite, a loyal veteran that refuses to try something new. I find that a lot from those that smoke old brands like these...Don Diego, Henry Clay, Hoyo de Monterrey etc. Come on fellas, variety is the spice of life! But I digress. The chestnut-brown Connecticut shade wrapper is incredibly smooth, and lends a straight burn from first light, while the Dominican and Brazilian long-fillers turn to a solid light-grey ash. The aroma remains pleasant, and will surely please any crowd. The flavor, that’s another story. These days, I find this cigar doesn’t have enough character to please my palate, which is growing more critical by the hour. The flavor is pleasant, and mellow. Offering the slightest hint of cedar. No bells, no whistles, just a crisp tobacco flavor that diminishes hastily after each puff. If I smoked 1 cigar every few days, Don Diego might stand a chance, but I’m up to 2-3 a day lately. That kind of rotation calls for something with a little more substance. There’s nothing wrong with mild, as long as there’s some complexity to add a little excitement. Sorry Don Diego, things just aren’t going to work out.
