Don Jesus

“7th Wonder of the World” indeed!

Here’s a sad story with a mildly happy ending. A few months ago, we purchased a closeout lot. A favor to friend kind of thing. As they say, no good deed goes unpunished. Here’s our punishment. Among some more decent brands was a gem labeled Don Jesus. Funny enough alone, but it gets better. Closer examination revealed the number of cigars on the bundle manually scribbled out with a Sharpie. Bearable, I guess. But it gets worse. The ‘Don Jesus’ label was obviously applied over another label to intentionally cover it up. Underneath? Another label of a brand called Desperado Seconds. A cigar described in print, on the sticker, by the manufacturer as, “These are not first quality cigars, not stemless, perfect, or spectacular in any way.” Good. Now that my cards are all on the table, here’s the happy ending. We burnt a bundle. They’re not that bad, and I want to wash my hands of this mess quickly. So my offer to you is this: I’m not going to make any money on these and you get a half-decent cigar as low as 50-cents apiece. Help me out, would ya?

Not bad for the price
These aren't Rocky Patels or Macanudos. But if you want a low priced stick that is fine for working in the yard or taking a walk, these aren't bad at all. Quality is a bit inconsistent, and they burn faster than a premium cigar, but at fifty cents a throw, I keep a bundle handy for those occasions when I choose not to fire up a Rocky or an Oliva.

Don Jesus Corona Grande Maduro Review
Great Cigar for the price. Left a wierd after taste on lips and tongue. Hoping that gets better after sitting in the humidor for a while.

Better than a stick in the eye.
I'll buy them till they run out.

These easy on the wallet cigars were rather good. Not exceptionally fantastic in any way but for a daily smoke to puff on while doing whatever it is you need to do. They fill the bill nicely. If I ever buy them again I would let them sit for a while and age a little to see if the taste improves. Other than that they draw and burn well. I'd order them again in the future for myself or a friend.

Ok for it's price!
I like cigars, The Don Jesus isn't a pretty cigar, but it is a very good value. Mild, burns well, but not bad and has a good flavor. A great every cigar for the price...

An ok smoke
These cigars would be good for an everyday smoke. They're mild and pleasant. The tightness with which they are rolled varies from one to another. Some are tight others are loose. Otherwise I find them enjoyable.

No draw
After calling customer service it was mentioned that the cigars are too moist and I returned most of the cigars. I researched this problem on the internet and found that if you microwave the cigar for 25-30 seconds it will dry out the cigar. Bingo, It worked and was able to smoke the cigar and it has a decent taste. It has very rough construction but for the price I might try it again....................

cutters practice only
I am a casual smoker so I want to try everything before I find my go to brand and I can tell you this. I have to say the cigars are very sponge like and lumpy. I have a variety of cutters-punch, v cutter, double guillotine, scissor cutter, every time I cut the cigar no matter what I used it unraveled and fell apart. the flavor was of bitter grass and you get tar coming through before your half way through the cigar. I would say these cigars are best used for cutting practice not smoking. I threw them away.

Surprisingly great smoke!
Very pleased! A cheap smoke with the quality that could run neck and neck with many top names. Very mild and smooth smoke with a nice even burn all the way to the end. Can't go wrong with this one!

Construction is inconsistent.

Pleasant surprise!
A very pleasant surprise! I smoke cigars because I like cigars, not to impress anyone with a fancy brand. The Don Jesus isn't a pretty cigar, but it is a very good value. Mild, burns well, a bit loose but not bad and has a good flavor. A great every day cigar. Thanks CI for a real value cigar!

Bought because they were cheap but was pleasantly surprised.
Great cigar and cheap. I gave all my friends some and they really liked them as well. Not the best but perfect daily cigar or while working on car or yard. Burns very well with a long ash. I've ordered then a few times now and are fresh and moist every time.

These are not the best cigars in any way but price. Not bad but not good. Does not stand up to.wind. loosely packed. I will however buy them again for an indoor smoke.

Not a bad cheap cigar
Tried one, gave one away for a second opinion. We both agree ... waiting three to six months won't hurt. For a low priced cigar I have had worse. When I try them again will review again.

With this you get more that what you expect. Construction of course is not on par with high-end cigars, but they do hold together well. Flavor is nice and mild, burn is even, and the value is spectacular!

I prefer a mild or mild-med smoke. I purchased a cheap smoke called Don Jesus and what a pleasant surprise. I really liked them. Not the best made cigar, but overall a really nice mild smoke. I always watch for the special. Thanks CI..

Wonderful Smoke
I've had good and bad premiums and good and bad cheapies. This is a GREAT cheapie! Great flavor, nice draw, and even burn -- a truly wonderful smoke. Yeah, it looks a little mangy but beauty is as beauty does. I'm gonna stock up on these before the secret is out. Uh, maybe I shouldn't have said that.

An Adventurous Cigar
My cigar budget has tightened. I suspect there might have come a time in my cigar snobby days I may have gone three stars on this one. But back then I was young and full of.......myself. These are delightful, fun and unexpected. The taste is delightful. The fun is that no two cigars burn or quite taste the same. I suspect this is true because no two cigars look like or burn like another. This is an adventure cigar. I was sitting with a friend and he asked me the name of the cigar. I couldn't remember so I told him I called the Lumpy Bumpys. The name stuck. I agree with the reviewer who thought perhaps these cigars are the result of novice rollers teaching curve. Try a bundle. It'a fun adventure. These Maduros have a medium to strong flavor profile. I have just purchased a bundle of the naturals.

I'm always looking for a bargain cigar for everyday use and I think this fits my needs. The price was good. The cigar burns well and draws great. This is good buy.

Good cigar
I read the reviews on this cigar before I purchased them, most reviews were positive. I agree with the other reviews I read. I think this cigar is great for an everyday cigar.

If you want a "pretty" cigar, these aren't for you.
To be honest, my first thought when I saw these cigars, was that they are ugly. I mean, if you ever wondered what happened to the cigars produced by trainee cigar makers, well, here you go. That being said, they are very good smokes, with even burn, decent construction, and decent taste. Well worth the cost. I'll be doubling my order next time.

Mostly not bad. When I first purchased these it just to have a cheap smoke at work. Most of them are good to very good with a few that are soft. Some of them are excellent. At this price a damn good deal.

Good smoke, bargain price
Nothing fancy here just a good general smoke at a rock bottom price. I’m on a budget so these are good daily cigars for me that I can afford to enjoy!

Awesome Service!!!!
I call these cigars, "Mexican Cowboys". They make for a good smoke for yard cigars. Nothing fancy, just a good getaway when you need a "Fix"... Heck, I just visited your retail store in Bethlehem, yesterday with some buddies. Came all the way up from Tampa, and my second day here in PA, I'm hanging out in front of your store, with some good friends and smoking some great cigars. The service and experienced personnel for both your store and online enmities are beyond exceptional. Keep up the great work, and thanks again for the military discount, yesterday. All the best, from your Tampa friends!
Customer Testimonials
I was skeptical ordering these for the first time, let alone ordering 2 bundles, but I gotta say, their not to bad..... well... The wrapper is pretty bad, the packing is pretty lose, have had a couple that have holes in them, but over all, they are the cigar I love to hate and would order them again! They burn nice, even though they are packed too loosely, they smoke well and the flavor is pretty darn good. For the price, I would buy them again.
Bought both and smoked as soon as I opened the box. Good smoke and stay lit when left sitting with a nice white ash. Good all purpose cigar.
It produced smoke when I set it on fire. For the price I paid I was hardly expecting it to even do that. Glad I pulled the trigger on this "yard gar". I'm no connoisseur by any means, but I have tried cigars costing twice the amount that I paid for this entire bundle that were garbage. Soft pack, flakey ash, not the best wrapper but it did hold an even burn surprisingly. These are not herf cigars, these are cigars you puff when you find yourself wanting a cigar, but don't want to put a 20 dollar bill in the wind. Will add to every order.
It's quite comical. These cigars are actually a pleasant surprise. The description could not be more accurate. Are they exceptional? Absolutely not, but trust me: they're still a solid smoke. Grab a bundle (or two, especially for the price) and toss them in your humidor. These pair perfectly with a glass of bourbon or rye whiskey. Cheers!
Nice cigar for a lower price. Thank you.
I did not expect to enjoy these cigars so much considering the price. Purchased one bundle each; they are smooth and burn well. I can tell that they are not made by expert hands and the texture is soft, but if one is looking for the high quality of Partagas or H. Upmann, then you have to pay their price. These cigars are great for the low price.
Very nice and smooth cigar; great price.
When I bought them, I wasn't sure about the cigar, but it turned out to be a really big surprise. The taste was good and the price is really great. Will buy them again.
I was very impressed by the way these taste and smoke, that I think CI should get more and sell them.
I just tried both of these and must say for price I am some what impressed; no bad after taste, smooth, but a mild smoke. I like them for outside yard work and times when I know it might get damaged or ruined by working around house. They are loose rolled, but burn decently; they do not have a binder or binder is the wrapper might be a better description. For the price, worth the try if looking for a cheap smoke.
This was a panic order. My humidor was getting empty and it was between pay days so I didn't have much money so I gave them a shot. Boy was I surprised! They aren't bad. Rolled a little loose, but they draw nice and burn even. Best fifty cent cigar I ever smoked!
Nice taste, nice odor. Stays lit well. Good all around cigar. Packed just right (not to loose not too tight). Good price. Would order again....
I wasn't sure about this cigar, but I figured that for the price I'd try it. Granted, this isn't a great cigar but it does beat the machine-made 'homogenized' wrapper sticks. The "Don Jesus" label is stuck over the original packaging but it doesn't really matter. They do burn evenly and draw well enough. These are okay for keeping gnats and mosquitoes away while you're fishing, for yard work, or just a cheap smoke (beware mooches!!).
Just received mine today. For the price I paid it's hard to be disappointed. It is smoking well, taste pretty good actually. At first it tasted too much like a cigarette but after a few puffs that went away. I would not put it in the same class as a higher end smoke. I am a novice, but in comparison to brands that I have smoked such as CAO, Rocky Patel, Gurkha and Puros Indios among others) it doesn't remotely hold up on the same level. The construction is pretty poor. The cigar I am presently smoking is slightly curved and it is definitely not rolled very firmly.The outside wrapper has visible seams and the cigar feels pretty fragile. It is not a tight presentation. Again, this is a pretty good price for 20 cigars and they taste fine. Just don't expect greatness.
decent, but loosely packed, & kinda flimsy,not bad taste but cheaply made..
First off, let me say I paid $9.95 for a 20 count bundle and that included shipping...Now for my review.: the cigars have a homogeneous binder which I can detect immediately. Overall, the smoke is OK if you like these type cigars...probably one of the tastiest homogeneous binder cigars I've tasted. They are NOT hand made...machine made and MAYBE the outer wrapper was put on by hand. The filler is like cigarette chopped tobacco. Flavor is good, and burn is consistent and milder than expected. I got exactly what I paid for. They are better than the La Aurora principles, but if you are use to smoking 100% tobacco cigars, you WILL be disappointed!... Don Jesus...Desperado 2nds...whatever you want to call yourselves...Glad to see you gone as looks like CI is sold out...RIP!
Great everyday smokers. I will buy more.
This is surprisingly good daily smoke. I have purchased two bundles of these and I waiting for them to restock the Churchill's so I can buy another bundle. IT is a very consistent smoking experience.
You can't go wrong with this one. Interesting smoke. Good flavor, stays lit, decent construction. My friends try it and ask where they go to order some. Give it a try. For the price, what have you got to loose?
I was skeptical, but I went ahead and bought a bundle of these. Turns out I was pleasantly surprised, enough so that I just bought another bundle. Very tasty for the price.
very nice smoke for the price it burns well i just got it today and smoked two of them already and enjoyed them thanksthanksthanks
For 50 cents a stick, better then alot of machine-mades. Take a chance, you'll be surprised.
I didn't go blind after smoking these. In fact they were much smoother than I expected with a rough strong tobacco flavor with a hint of vanilla. I have to admit, they weren't too bad for an ice fishing cigar. Then again, walking out onto a frozen lake in -20F temeratures doesn't say much for my personal preferences. Still, it was nice to know that [Don] Jesus was on the ice with me.
Wow is all I can say, Great Flavor for the price, as good as the higher dollar ones I have bought, I am waiting to try the others. . nice Maduro wrapper. They are uneven and and a few veins but Nothing Obnoxious.
Not the prettiest or fanciest cigar but a darn good smoker. And at this price you can't go wrong.
I gotta say. I was skeptical about it for the price. Not the best. But not the worst. Decent smoke. I enjoy it during my lunch break for a fast smoke with a cup of coffee. I will buy another bundle. Leave it in the humidor for a week before smoking it.
