I thought " what a surprise" as I smoked the first maduro gordo. They are pleasantly interesting, full enough to satisfy a full body guy and impressive enough to get you thinking about your next box. At under 30 bucks a box, I'll buy em all day.
i am smoking one of these as i type.very nice and well made.ROTT,,excelent flavor and draw,,not to bold but just right.i like a kinda gutsy cigar and this is great for a very well priced everyday smoke.the Corona Gorda are an excelent buy for the $$ price.the aroma is pretty good and it doesnt get you KICKED OUT of the living room and thats a good thing.this cigar will be even better with a lil humi time,,,,,if i can wait.
Just received my Vieja Tradicion, cigars and I have to say right off the top that they came in a beautiful box with hinges!! Nice quality!! The cigars were well constructed and in perfect condition. Tried just one and so far so good! A little humi time and they may even get better! Smooth draw and good taste! Can't beat it for the money!! Will definitely buy more!!
Took a shot in the dark ordering this unknown/unfamiliar brand cigar, But Boy Howdy!!!! Talk about a REAL Sleeper!!!! - - - from the CI Clearance Dept.!!!! This 6 X 52 guy tastes amazingly good. The listed price puts this cigar in the " Lincoln Continental at a Ford price" zone!
9 day shipping left the wrapper cracked, was not truly happy with the package, box looks better on the website as well. It's a decent taste. It was kind of a hit & miss with a few of them which is odd to me but, whatever. It's got a nice mild taste, I can't give a perfect review because they came cracked & 90% of them all the wrap fell off. I wasn't too happy but as for taste it tasted fairly well due to it being potentially pretty dry. I'd give them a 2.5/5 for the whole deal, presentation, etc.
Flavor is good for the price, but most of them burn unevenly. I usually have to relight them several times while out on the golf course. They're not bad for the price....
This is a very good cigar! It burns evenly, has nice flavor, and is well constructed. Very nice packaging too! A definite rebuy for as long as they are around for!!
Took a risk on a box of maduro robusto. With the exception of some relighting issues (about 1 of 5) definitely a risk well taken!!! Thanks for the exceptional bargain CI!
If you're looking for a gar you can smoke while you mow the lawn or give away to buddies on poker night this brand will fit the bill.
I just received my Vieja Tradicion and wasted no time. I was eager to see if these cigars are as good as the reviews says they are and so I fired one up immediately. I was so impressed with the flavors. I typically like my cigars in the medium to full body but this mild cigars was mild to medium at best and the flavors were really good. Nutty sweet cream and cedar were the main players. The construction was good the burn was great and the wrapper was ok. I bought the ten pack because I wasn't sure but now that I know they are good I'm going to order a full box. I'm going to try out the maduro this time. These cigars are great and I can't believe they are so cheap. This cigar is a perfect everyday cigar for me and believe me I've been looking and if you have been wondering if these are any good trust me they are. Heck! Buy the 10 pack to see for yourself.
Another great smoke. They last for a long time, and they have great taste to go with it.
All I can say is way to go CI for turning me on to these cigars, awesome flavor change for such a low priced gar. This is my favorite cheapie so far and hope they stay around for awhile!
I bought these for an everyday smoke with zero expectations. I was pleasantly surprised at the great taste this cigar has. Vanilla, caramel, and almonds come to mind. Very smooth, aged smoke. This gar is a hit.
Not a bad kick-around cigar. A good in between cigar at a great price point.
About what you expect for the price from CI. Good flavor, some issues with draw and construction but overall a very nice smoke for those times when you know you might not have time or circumstance to get full enjoyment out of a more expensive cigar.
Very well constructed. Mild to medium. This cigar has good flavor and burns evenly when kept properly in the humi. Definitely worth more than what it's selling for.
This is my 3rd box of the robusto maduros,and they are great every time ! I try to get at least one box per order now .I did not care for the lighter ones but that's just me being a full flavor guy!I seen one guy on here bitchen about the box but I don't smoke them!! I do keep one box to store my extra stuff in and have a humi and gauge in it for overruns, holds just fine.I don't know about being dried out cuz I live in Pa and get em in 2 days,but CI is awesome on returns and mine arrived in perfect shape.At these prices I can afford a nice everyday smoke.CI rocks the gar world!!
Not fully decided on if I would buy these again. Taste seemed to vary from cigar to cigar in the box I received. Not entirely too harsh, but definitely not smooth and creamy. Burn was sometimes inconsistent causing canoeing and didn't always stay lit. If you wanted a cigar that would burn awhile, these will definitely do that. So good as a yard gar. It's not the cigar I would sit down with a cup of coffee to enjoy though. Probably wouldn't buy again.
The robusto natural: these are just the right size. The box is nice and well made. The cigar is constructed well at the right price. With all that said overall, Vieja Tradicion is a bit dried out....Not a really tasty, smooth smoke. If you need a cheap box of stogies for your daily fix these ones are it. I might buy these again knowing what they are. Let's see with some humidor time.
Well, I just ordered 2 more boxes of these gars. The last two boxes I received had an almost black wrapper and man they were good! I love the price and with this next order should be about the 9th & 10th boxes for me. These are the best cheapie cigars I have found yet! Not a wild taste changing gar but a nice med to full smoke! Hey CI, keep'em coming man, I really like em.
This cigar is very underrated. In fact, it is a delicious tasting cigar with great flavor. I have to get more of these tasty morsels. Wow!
I was really gratified to find these things have loads of flavor. I will be buying them again, though there are still some in my humidor. This is a great deal.
I don't really know what to think of these having read all the other reviews. They burn well with a good draw, but I can't quite figure out the taste, or if there even is taste? Price is good, I guess if you just want a smoke then they're good. Maybe I'll try the Maduro next time. Nice to get a box for a change!
Nice box they came in, but did not particularly care for these cigars. They were a bit too "peppery" for me.
This cigar is the best cigar in the world. I'm not experienced in cigars, but this is the only one I can smoke to the nub.(or so says my wife; every other cigar I smoke is "too harsh and strong and bitter.")
Order these and you will not regret it. At about $1.35 a stick, you just can't beat them. Reserve a spot in your humidor for these babies, they are worth it.
Nice, smooth smoke; burns nice and even.
I like this cigar. Lots of smoke. Smooth and priced right.
The box was even impressive! These cigars smoke as well as any double the price. I'm waiting on my second box to arrive.
I liked this cigar. Some burned uneven, but for the price I liked them.
Great cigar for the price. I was looking for something cheap to smoke on my 30 minute commute to work and this fit the bill nicely. These do have some uneven burn issues and a few had a somewhat firm draw but the taste and the cheap price make up for it. Overall a good yard gar or commute smoke.
The cigars arrived in a timely fashion and the cigars were in great shape. The cigars look beautiful and are sealed nicely. The have a very subtle tobacco smell and it is very pleasant. Medium body seems about accurate for the double corona. The burn is great but the draw is a little tight. Overall a moderately priced good looking cigar that wont kick your ass if you are new to cigars but can still be enjoyed by someone who prefers a fuller cigar.
What can I say but wow! These are extremely affordable, come in a sexy box and best of all.. they taste great! Makes a nice "yard gar". I like to enjoy them while gaming on my PC. They have a very pleasing aroma, nutty, leathery with faint hints of buttered toast and coffee are what I get from the Connecticut Churchills and Toros. I'll be buying more and am looking forward to trying out the Maduros next time. I hope CI keeps these around for a while!
Surprisingly decent for a $1.35 maduro Toro. Take the bands off and tell your friends they're Brickhouse seconds!
not a bad cigar for the golf course, plenty of favor without making you light headed
