Gold Strike is rolled "Cuban-sandwich" style utilizing high-quality Nicaraguan tobacco leaves tucked inside a smooth Indonesian Sumatra wrapper. Medium in body, and producing a nice array of coffee, earth, and a dash of pepper, this handmade is worth its weight in....errr gold. But here’s the even better news....the pricing is ridiculously low, in pure CI fashion. This means you can keep the wallet well padded, while stocking up on these till the cows come home.
“Bought these on an impulse. I'm not usually one for cheaper cigars but these are able to keep up with the more well known brands. Very impressed”

“Picture it. South Louisiana, early 2014. I was working the roads and was craving a GOOD smoke. I was too far from home, so I stopped at a local convenience store. I browsed their cigar case for a minute and noticed a three-pack of these for slightly less than $10. Considering they also sold "name brand" singles for this price, this seemed like a bargain. I hesitantly brought the package to the checkout. Got in my car and lit one up. WOW! I have to admit, I wasn't expecting much, but these definitely satisfied my need for a good, nay GREAT, cigar. It was a bit uneventful until I got past the first 1/4 of this cigar. Then it started to evolve into what tasted to me like a much more expensive cigar. I've been smoking well over 10 years, but have never tasted things like "leather, earth and floral tones" in a cigar. To me, either a cigar is great, good, good enough, or horrible. I'd definitely put these in the good / great category. I loved them so much, I easily went back to the same store and bought two more packs within a week. That's when I came to CI and noticed they didn't sell them. I contacted customer service to request that they carry them and BAM! Here they are! Try some out. They are made by the Royal Gold factory and definitely taste like first-class smokes!”

“Picked these up at a local convenience store when my humidor was empty one day(yeah, I know....shame on me). They are every bit as good as a much more expensive cigar, at a MUCH cheaper price. The local store doesn't have them all the time and I'm glad to see CI is carrying them, as I can get them from CI for even less than what I pay at the store, shipping included! Good, no, great smoke for the money.”
