Nicaraguan Gordo 2nds

Don't 'snub' these handmades....

Whoa, baby. These bulbous and stout suckers are the definition of large and in charge. Crafted by one of the hottest manufacturers in Nicaragua, these cigars are legit across the board. Hell, most of 'em I can't find a damn thing wrong with. Top-notch wrappers join forces with premium long-fillers for an experience as worthy as their banded brethren. I ain't complain' either because I can't stop puffin' on one after another. Sorry, I can't spill the beans on which brand or blend they are, but honestly, just give these a good once over and the dots should begin connecting quite easily. And whichever one gets your juices flowin', you can expect a rich, slow-burning experience for a fraction of normal retails. Don't delay, I expect these to move faster than the salad bar at a vegan convention.

Great buy!!!!
For the price you pay for these there is no complaints from me. I had 2 bad cigars out of the bunch but it was only a burn problem. The quality is superior! A few of the smokes were gems. I would say 92+.. I will be purchasing in the future.

Great One
These little babies smoked well and burned true. Draw was consistent as was burn. They last only about 30 mins for me but I have a heavy draw. I loved them as a everyday go to, or a finisher when the last cigar just wasn't enough. A great buy.

Gordos Short Lived
I was very happy with the first half of each Gordo. But once I passed the half way point, they really began to burn hot and bite. It was very disappointing.

Smokes like the boxes of firsts I bought; save the $$$ and buy these...
Appearance, construction & quality of a first! Smokes & burns like a first... This is an exceptional value if you like these very popular stubby stogies!

Surprisingly Good
I was expecting a cigar worth the price; I received one I would have been satisfied paying twice as much for. These smoke great, draw great, taste great. I will be reordering, and I hope I receive a bundle just as good.

Spicy Smoke
Have smoked several. Zesty, spicy cigar. Good construction with smooth draw. Will last awhile as it is a large cigar.

YOU KEPT ASKING
I like these cigars for the price. I might love them if they were in the intended condition but they are dried out and crack when you smoke them.

Fat smoke for a great price
Excellent smoke for the price. Would definitely buy again!

Really delicious Smoke
The taste on these guys is terrific, esp. considering the price. However, the burn is a little off on some them. Makes me appreciate the expertise of the folks who inspect these before they leave the factory that they can detect the small flaws that might show up when the cigar is smoked.

Nutty and creamy, slight leather. All good flavor
Smoked ROTT (right off the truck), Great flavor on light up, a tad dry but to be expected. Creamy and nutty in the 20-25 minutes I smoked. Probably get more smoking time after they rest for a month, but no lack of flavor and smooth to the Nub. I will order again.

Dear CI, Please keep this forever . . . .
1st time and 2nd time I ordered a box, 3rd time I ordered 2 boxes at the same time. This is the only time I have ever ordered 2 boxes of the same cigar. Great construction, draw, smell and it has given me a new found appreciation for the 60 gauge. Now when I have a smaller gauge I feel like I'm being cheated. lol These are awesome, I don't know how many platitudes or superlatives I can offer but I just want to say . . . . . please don't discontinue them.

Fair to partly cloudy
This is my first time ordering these - they just arrived today. Smoked the first one this afternoon and now I'm smoking my second one. They are exactly what you pay for - inexpensive and mediocre in taste and flavor. Light well, draw is loose, so tons of smoke, decent flavor and burn fast, but even and will last about 45 mins. Don't expect to burn a long ash unless you want to dump it in your lap. I personally wouldn't smoke them everyday, but would pass them out to friends who are not so experienced cigar smokers or if I want to enjoy a quick smoke.

Not Seconds!
These are tasty little cigars. Med-Full body, earthy, leathery tasting. I smoke them to the nub! One of my "go-to" cigars when I need a quick break.

These things are great! Gave them a month in the humi and then... They burn even and cool, have not had to relight one yet. You should avoid these so I can reorder.

Gordo 2nds are amazing...
Imperfections so slight that they aren't noticeable. The only things missing from these little beauties are the bands and the price tag. I will definitely purchase more in the future!

Good for the money
I bought these with no expectations and honestly for the money you can't go wrong. Order a bundle and if you don't like them your friends who don't smoke cigars will think they're top notch anyways. The caps cracked on a few so far but still smokeable and a good everyday cigar for not much money.

Too long
I call these my 7th inning stretchers. They last from the 1st to the 7th inning of a game. They are almost a bit too strong for a smoke of that duration.

For me the perfect everyday smoke. Great flavor and burn worth a try.

Nicaraguan Gordo 2nds 60 Cameroon
Another 2nd that could easily pass off as a first run cigar. Medium strength and flavor. A little light on the rolling, but very even burning and tasty. Maybe I have been lucky, But all of these "2nds" have been really good.
5 out of 5
The 58 is great!!
I ordered a bundle of the Connecticut 58 Gordo because I have wanted to give the "stubby" cigars a try. The first one I smoked I had cut the cap before smoking. The draw was super easy to the point that the cigar seemed to burn hot from the beginning. Since then I have smoked several more but I have only punched the cap. All of them have had an easy draw but have not been hot. The copious amount of smoke is great and the flavor superb. I am considering trying one of the "real ones" but these are so good for a fraction of the price I am not sure I want to waste the money. Totally recommend these.

Nicaraguan Gordo 2nds 60 Cameroon
With notes of earth, natural, pepper, leather, wood and walnut. its consistency will be slightly bitter and spicy but at the same time with an average force. the burn is even with a calm combustion it just flowed well smoke. its construction is delicate with a color chiaroscuro and barely be noticed part of his veins, in conclusion is a good cigar but never overtake Nub cameroon from Oliva.

Mighty Maduros
A return customer for these little beauties...What more can I say? Thought an earlier description mentioned Olivia as a probable producer, and some reviews appear to confirm the theory. Doesn't matter,they are still great for the price and right for an after diner sit down. Birthday coming up next week....a bundle would be a real nice gift from CI Joe :-)

Big and beefy well made smokes with lots of chocolate-at least per my unprofessional tastebuds. Burned nice. Nice construction. Well worth the money.

Short and Sweet!
I tried a few of the regular Cameroon Nub's at a local cigar shop, then bought a mazo of the seconds from CI. Honestly, the only noticable difference between the branded one and the 2nd is the wrapper. The wrap on the 2nd is darker and shows lots of spotting. Doesn't have the usual distinctive Cameroon appearance. But hey, you shouldn't buy a cigar for looks, but for how it smokes. And these smoke pretty much the same as the brand ones. Close your eyes, think of the savings, inhale, and you won't notice the difference. Definately worth the buy.

Best Value!
without a doubt, one of values out there! If you like Connecticut Nub cigars, you can't go wrong. This is one of my go to cigars for the early morning. Great with a cup of coffee. I've bought 3 mazos so far and haven't had a single one disappoint me.

Short But tasty
Found these to be a little too short -- out of the 4 inch length I got maybe 3-1/4 inches of smoke (and some burned fingers). Nice for the price but I don't think I'll be ordering these again.
4 out of 5
Good things really do come in small packages!
Great cigar at a great price! This little cigar is full bodied with a great taste. It maybe a 2nd but it smokes like a #1. Give it a whirl before they catch on and raise the price!
5 out of 5
These Are What You Think These Are :-)
There's only one brand of cigar out there that looks like these smokes. I'm not gonna spill the beans here. Suffice to say: These smoke every bit as good as their "first-label" counterparts. I only hope CI keeps getting these permanently. Just fantastic!

Nice, but not really anything to brag about. Some were hard drags and some stopped completely after half way. Those that were smokable had nice smoke and even burns. Taste not great either. Not horrible, just not really tasty.

Arrived a little dry , pretty good smoke

All right smokes
These stories are a good everyday smoke to keep the cost down. The downside is they tend to fray apart about halfway through. Other than that, they have a consistent draw and flavor which makes them well worth it.

Gordo 2nds
I initially thought the Gordo's would be a nice option for a quick smoke, however on firing the first one up I found that the wrappers are dry and quickly unravel making the Gordo mostly un-smokeable. I would not repurchase these because of that reason.

Flavor
You can always tell the difference between a cheap cigar and one that you spend money on. These were good on arrival and better after a week in the humidor. I'll buy them again. My golf cigar holder did split it open but it was a good tight pack so I could enjoy it to the nub.

Only this missing is a band.
I have been looking for a flaw. I have a few left, but so far can't find why they are called seconds. They are a milder Nic with great taste. I don't care who makes them and enjoy the price break without the cigar band telling me. Not a second in my mind at all.

Great cigar. Went in not expecting much. They were cheep so I wasn't worried bout handing a few out for smoking company. Turns out these (64 habano gordo) burn great, ash great, and taste great. I actually like these better than the 460 NUB habano I had as a gift. And for the price.... Pfft will be buying seconds again

I love seconds, I love Oliva cigars, and I especially like the nubs. I didn't smoke them at first, they sounded gimmicky, but these little beauties are delicious. I especially like the Connecticut. Every one has drawn and smoked perfectly, indistinguishable from the primeros.

While the taste is there out of the bundle 60% burned unevenly and tunneled. The others were spot on so buyer beware. I think a smaller ring gauge would benefit well.

If you are anything like me you have a number of special sticks in the box that you want to be able to savor. For instances where you just want a smoke to unwind/something to travel with, this fits that bill rather nicely.

Short little dudes, had 10 minute smoke until I stuck end into a pipe and got another 5 to 10 minutes. Not a great tasting cigar, price was good though.

Everyday smoke for Nub enthusiasts
I have been a Nub fan since my first smoke so the plug for these Gordo 2's caught my eye. Preferring the rich smoothness of the habano variant, these were my trial for the Gordo 2s. I couldn't believe how good these "seconds" were! With their price point and quality, these will be a regular purchase.

Awesome smoke
Incredibly great smoke. As close you can get to a Nub. Buy it.

Seconds are best values
These particular cigs are no seconds in taste. I’d buy these in full length, 6 inch taste busters, but haven’t seen any of those yet.

Loving these gordo 2nds
I love a fat smoke. Nub is one of my faves. But these gordo 2nds are tasty, but at a much lower price. If you're a volume smoker looking for a great value, these are perfect!

Cameroon or Habano excellent deal
Since the "NUB" was introduced I have liked them all. Of course I have a preference. Always looking for a deal I would wait for a special or bid the auctions to get a better deal. But wait no longer. Seconds my posterior. You have to look to find the blemish. These are one of the best values, period. A great 45 minutes smoke for anywhere anytime. If I cant finish it as I would like, it doesn't hurt to stub it out. For less than half the cost of it's 1st's I can just lite up another later on. If you have not tried the NUB get a sampler select your favorite wrappers and return for a great savings. Thanks CI for an outstanding deal.

Good smoke for the price
exactly what you would expect from a "factory second". Good taste, imperfect wrapper and a moderate to fast burn.

Gordo 2nds - great value
Really great cigar value. A few in the bundle may have a slight color change, or other wrapper imperfection, but these are the perfect daily smokes. Great burn and flavor that you would expect from a great Nicaraguan cigar.

Smooth and flawless. I already ordered more. These will be a staple in my humidor.

Hints of pepper is the 1st thing you get here. It a smooth smoke nothing harsh about it at all.

Good but.....
I have only smoked a few to date. The flavor is good but the wrappers keep splitting early on in the smoke.

Great Smoke!
I ordered these quite a few times and they are truly worth the price. For a "second" they are very much like those that made the grade - in flavor and construction!

Very good smoke for a great price!
These have turned out to be one of my favorite smokes, especially for the price! First bundle I got was the habano 64 torpedoes, and they were excellent! Most of them had a nice wide open draw, even when I didn't cut much off of the torpedo tip. I also tried the Cameroon and Connecticut wrappers, Cameroon was good but the Connecticut was amazing. I'm not sure which one I like better between the habano and the Connecticut as of right now, gotta go smoke some more to find out. They just had a great deal on these, so I got the maduro and sungrown wrappers to try out. Good thing I did because now the sungrown is out of stock (September 2015). I read that the sungrown was an extension of the habano wrapper, possibly a bit more full body, so I bet it's going to be really good too!

Good cigar, great price!
You know what these are. Hard to believe they’re 2nds. Smooth smoke and a great draw. Will definately purchase again.

C-I always my first choice
When looking for cigars I always check C-I first. The 66 Cameroons were the perfect choice for that 45 minute drive...

Gordo Flavor!
Great everyday smoke! Can't beat this for the price compared to other big ring cigars. A quarter the price of nub with lots of flavor and smooth burn.

Always been a big fan of Nubs. This hit the spot for a fraction of the price. Already looking to buy some more. Side note- couldn't figure out for the life of me what made them 2nds.

A very good smoke
The leather and some spice was really enjoyable. Lots of smoke and an even burn ensure the cigar is less trouble and more relaxing. This smoke goes well (for me) with a sour mash whiskey, or a stout dark beer. For the cost this is a really good bang for the buck.

Delicioso
DO NOT MISS OUT ON THESE! Such a great buy on a premium cigar. You will burn these past the label (if they had one) until you fingers burn. Thanks CI for carrying these.

A good buy
I just started smoking cigars again so I took a chance on these. I couldn't be happier. They have a good smooth flavor, burn evenly and provide a nice relaxing smoke. Will I buy again, heck yeah. Should you buy some? No. Then I won't miss out on this great smoke!!!! I wish I more smoking experience to compare them to other cigars, but I don't. Maybe in a couple more months I can give some comparisons. Until then smoke on ...

My go 2
love these cigars. They smoke better than most non-2nds. Awesome deal for the price.

For the price it works
Tons of smoke and good draw. Kind of a quick burn which I wasn't expecting as Nubs burn longer. However for the price can't beat it. I would recommend for a smoker that likes immediate flavor and a hearty burn.

Don't Buy These
or there may not be any left for me!! Minus one star because they are 2nds and a few in every mazo are imperfect. Most are fine.

Great discounted premium cigars
All or very close to the full taste of their more costly "brothers" at a more affordable price. The only discrepancy I've noticed is sometimes the burn isn't even outside and inside the cigar. Other than that, a nice cigar.

Cheap daily smoke
good flavor and smoke for the price. Inconsistent wrapper quality and burn. Some were so hard to draw it was actually tiring to smoke, while others were ok.

Great cigar
Probably the best cigar I have ever smoked.
Customer Testimonials
These are awesome! Had 1 stinker so far; I let the others rest in my humidor for 6 weeks. Tasted and smoked just like the Oliva Nub maduro I paid twice as much for.
Great cigar for the price; will order again.
I am so glad I took a chance with these. I am placing my next order today. Great stuff!
Nice little smokes for the money! I was a little skeptical at first until I unwrapped one. Nice solid feel, good wrapper slightly darker than an EMS. Nice draw and burn. I don't tell anyone what they cost and they think its one of the top shelf brands. A good solid everyday cigar. I am ordering more after I send this review. As always thank you CI for another hidden gem.
Good everyday cigar, highly recommend.
If you are on the fence about ordering some of these fatties, well they are worth it. I tried the Habano plus and they were excellent. A medium to full smoke and the flavor profile is great. Get your hands on some of these!
Love these little guys! As authentic as you can get! If you like the NUB or Oliva Connecticut blends you will love these. I've bought at least 8 packs over the past year or so and they are great little short stories! Very well made.
FRIGGIN GORDOS ARE GREAT! Real smooth and earthy. Easy on the palate. Enjoyable to the last sixteenth of an inch. They get me to the bank and back with all the savings.
Seriously good cigars. Why pay extra just for a band with a name on it, when you could have these and save that $$ for something else? I could honestly be happy with a humidor full of these. Stock up while you can.
I would say a medium to full smoke. Great smoke! Woodsey, peppery with a hint of leather.
These babies are great. I fired one up as soon as I got them in my hands. Beautiful construction, solid in my hand. Cold draw was really good and some of the flavors came through. After lighting it had an even burn, great ash and great flavors presenting spice, cedar, coffee and a hint of sweetness. My second one, which was during my lunch break was just as delicious as the first. I will certainly be ordering these babies again.
Didn't notice how small they are until I got them, veritable Nubs. Taste disappointing too.
great cigar, especially for the price........one that can stand up to a Nub and less than half the price! :-)
Bought 466 Habanos... seriously if these are 2nds would love to know why. Thanks CI hope these are always available to keep a stash in the humidor.
REALLY GLAD I STUMBLED ONTO THESE WHILE DIGGING A LITTLE DEEPER INTO THE CI WEBSITE OPTIONS [$2-$4...CAMEROON,ETC]. NOT SURE WHY THESE AREN'T UNDER THE EASILY ACCESSIBLE 'NAME BRAND 2NDS'...THE NICARAGUAN 90+ AND LIGERO 2NDS ARE...DON'T SEE WHY THESE WOULD BE TREATED DIFFERENTLY, BUT GLAD THAT THEY ARE. I WANT THEM AVAILABLE FOR MY MONTHLY PURCHASE FOR A LONG TIME TO COME. I GUESS I COULD BE SPILLING THE BEANS ON SOME BIG, SUPER SECRET SOCIETY OF 2ND HUNTERS...BUT IF YOU'RE READING THIS, YOU FOUND THEM THE SAME WAY I DID. IF YOU DIDN'T...THESE AREN'T THE DROIDS YOU'RE LOOKING FOR.
I need a second humidor just to buy more of these. Need I say more?
These fatty beauties are slow burning and full of flavor. I just put down my 3rd 66 ring habano fatty and I can't get enough. 9 out of 10 rating for me. You get absolute value for your buck!
These taste exactly like the 1st's and everyone should know which ones these are, based off the size description. Smoked two already and man I am glad I purchased a box of these. I will say that the wrapper on one was coming off during the smoke but again they are 2nds.
These make me want to take out a loan, and buy as many as I can, and build a giant humi to store them. You never know when they will run out.
Everyone should be able to figure out the name brand of these, if not look at the product description above and to the left. I bought 3 bundles, 1 Extra Fuerte habano and the 466 habano Gordo's, the extra "F" (hint-hint) was excellent ROTT, burned evenly, slowly copious amounts of smoke, woody, spicy and peppery through the nose, slight sweetness not harsh or rough, I would say a medium to full smoke, the 466 ROTT the wrapper started to fall apart but was a good smoke, after a week in the humi the next one was perfect, slight woodiness, lots of good tobacco flavors but on the mild side of a medium cigar, burnt evenly and slowly with lots of smoke, these are so good I ordered 3 more bundles of the extra fuerte, and hope to be able to get more when my supplies start to dwindle! at little over 2 bucks a piece??? NO-BRAINER!! versus 7 to 8 bucks?????
