Customer Reviews of “C'est La Vie”
These are a mild to slightly medium cigar that burn evenly and will hold an ash for about an inch and a half. The outter wrappers are somewhat thin but perfect with a nice cap. They smoke cool and stay enjoyable to the end. The only real drawback so far has been you will find 2-3 really loosely rolled ones in your bundle that practically smoke themselves and a few that could have been rolled a tad tighter. But for the most part (14+ in the bundle) your in for some really nice smokes that even my friends that smoke the higher end cigars find agreeable. I don't like to talk abut cigars in terms of price, either you like them or you don't - and I like these and will continue to order more. I always order the sweet version but I have yet to taste any sweetness on the cap like a Baccarat. Unless, you like the fuller bodied cigars - or like those cigars that are rock hard, you really can't go wrong with these.

Best, cheap, hand-made cigar Ive ever had. Better than any $1 smoke or even $2 cigar. My usual yard cigar is the Perdomo Fresco, not anymore, Ill be ordering at least 2 more bundles soon. CI, please don't run out of these!!!!
TB of Barto, PA
I'm smoking one as I write, I find them very enjoyable for being such an inexpensive cigar. The first thing you will notice after lighting up is the billows of smoke, very impressive. They have a nice mild to a sum what medium flavor, everyone that I have smoked has had a nice even burn and a soft easy flavor rite to the very end. You can't go wrong with this one, it's no wonder they are out of stock. Mine have been in the humidor for a month or so which may have been a plus. I can't wait to order more. Enjoy.

These are great garage smokes when your tinkering or watching the game. They smell like a cigar and taste great, nothing complex mind you, they do burn quickly but for the price you can't go wrong.

First things first, I bought these for when I want a quick smoke while I am outside either going for a walk or working around the house. I did not expect much, in fact I was very nervous about ordering these. So, after receiving my order of 40 Sweet Robusto's and lighting up the first (right out of the package), my first impression was "Wow, not bad!" I was expecting something that would fall apart mid way through the smoke or have such a revolting taste that I would make it half way in. They are soft, which had me a little worried when I lit it that it wouldn't hold together at all, but it did surprisingly well. They are marked as "Sweet" but I don't taste it. I'm used to the CI Legend Copper Label or a Drew Estate Big Dirt Torpedo when I think sweet. They're not bitter, but I wouldn't go as far as calling them sweet. If you're looking for a nice inexpensive (I will not call these cheap because their quality is better than that) smoke that is great for a shorter walk, working in the garage, or just sitting out on the deck, these are well suited. I will DEFINITELY be ordering these again once my stock gets low.
TS of IRONWOOD, MI
Really enjoyable cigar. The burn is very even and has a really mellow flavor that I enjoy. Great to smoke when I'm working in my wood shop. Great Cigar for the price. I recommend to anyone.
DD of PLEASANT HILL, IA
Great smoke; you can't go wrong if you enjoy a mild to medium body stick. Took one right out of the bundle when they came and I can't say enough about them. The price is right!
MH of Orangevale, CA
This is a great everyday cigar. Smooth, mild and favor-ful. Puffing one right now, little more than an hour of cigar-smoking pleasure. Gave one of these cigars to a work buddy new to cigars...he will be ordering some from you very soon! Hope these stay in stock, I'm going to need more myself.
JC of BOWLING GREEN, KY
A great everyday cigar. When working around the garage or walking the dog I make sure to take one with me. You can't go wrong for the money.
DS of ESSEX JCT., VT
I just received my cigars today, Great job of getting them here, UPS. We had a pretty bad snow/ice storm and what a nice compliment to 7 degree temperatures than a good smoke and a nice cocktail. I bought 4 bundles of Robustos, 40 sweets and 40 naturals. A good deal, what else can I say...... C'est La Vie!
AH of BALTIMORE, MD
Hesitate to say anything because I fear a price increase. This isn't just a good buck stick...this beats anything I have smoked under $2.50 a stick. This allows me to smoke cigars at a price that rivals White Owls and really love the experience.
DP of SUMMERVILLE, SC
Very pleased. Can't beat the price, mild and smooth. Great everyday, anytime of day smoke, will buy again.
MM of Roy, UT
Cigars were well worth the money! Great taste, CI done it again!
DM of Arcadia, IN
This is a wonderful mild cigar from start to finish. It is my favorite in my humidor! Plenty of smoke, nice draw, even burn. I have not found a bad one in the bundle. Beats the pants off of many higher priced cigars!
FF of Beaver Falls, PA
For a mixed filler cigar all I can say is WOW!!! I smoked one right off the truck. Smooth to the very end. Nice bit of spice, cedar, a hint of coffee flavor, nice even burn and very well constructed. These could easily pass for a 7-10 dollar cigar. I've actually smoked some high end cigars that didn't come close to being this enjoyable. These will only get better with age if I can let them sit that long! Great service as always from CI and a great product! Please don't run out!
MS of Frankfort, KY
Very nice daily smoke. Smooth and even, and well constructed. I really like them.
MR of Presque Isle, MI
At less than a buck a stick I took a shot. Bought the 2-fer of the 'slightly sweet' Churchills and was pleased beyond expectations. The sweetness truly is 'slight' and just enough to carry through the smoke all the way to the end. I wouldn't classify it as a 'flavored' cigar though. They're a slightly loose roll with an easy mild draw. Smokes a bit quick but mellow with no bite down to the nub. Great with a cup of Joe on the deck in the AM, or as a day ender watching the sunset. I'll buy again.
PK of Campton Hills, IL
Good cigar for the price.
TC of GALT, CA
These are very good for a buck,taste more like a higher priced cigar,Best cigar i have bought for a buck
RP of Clinton, NY
If your looking for an inexpensive good, mild cigar for an every day smoke order them up boys! Dont hesitate like I did, there is no need. I ordered the sweetened Churchills (7"X 50) and was very pleased to say the least. Came packaged well, not one was damaged. Was not expecting much for a buck a stick but they were very impressive for the price. Smoked two the first night they rolled off the truck. For the price it put the Ageing Room Quatro ten dollar stick I had the night before to shame, no bs. Both were consistant, never died out, smooth draw, nice smoke, no canoeing, not too sweet at all. Order the sweet ones, they are not sweet at all especially if you are comparing it to the sweet taste of something like the Drew Estates. Hard to beat for the price! You will be taking these down to the fingertips!
PF of Easton, CT
Nice yard or relaxing time smoke - a mild spice and consistent quality for a cheap cigar!
DP of Fredericksburg, VA
Just like the description says, "ain't promising much here." They ain't bad, but they ain't good either. You can smoke 'em, but when you get near to the end you wonder why?
SD of storrs mansfield, CT
Great everyday smoke. A little bit inconsistent in firmness, but always tastes good. Great for mowing the lawn. Will buy again.
JS of Mill Creek, OK
Best little cigar under a buck I've ever smoked... Keep 'em coming!
DM of HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE, AR
This was my first legit cigar, amd I'm totally new to smoking. These cigars have a very smooth draw and hold their ash well. They are also very firmly wrapped which I like because I take my time smoking them. Great first cigar. Will buy again.
SF of Allentown, PA
SHHHHHHHHHHH! don't tell 'em how good these are. Every time I try to order them they're out of stock and I have to wait weeks to get 'em back in stock.!!!!
HB of Atlanta, MI
Very soft and mild. Wish it would burn a little slower or came in a larger length.
CD of Commack, NY
Great refreshing cigars for a regular daily smoke - best deal for the price - smooth is not the proper word for the worthiness of these smokes - thanks for the deal - quality product! Sometimes you get more than you pay for - these are one of those times - worth the money - any day!
DL of Canyon, TX
These cigars are great for cheap sandwich style sticks. Flavor is mild. They burn consistently. Good everyday cigar for sitting out in the garage. Considering the price, you won't go wrong.
GH of Yorktown, VA
Excellent. Very mild... ordering more now...
AC of WEST PALM BEACH, FL
Wow what a deal! For an everyday knock around stick, these almost can't be beat. The crazy cheap 2-fer price grabbed my attention, and had to try them for myself. I chose the sweet toro, fired the first up as soon as they arrived. Nice mild taste, and mine so far are stupid easy to get an even burn. Did notice that the sweet is a little weak, but no biggie. I will be reordering these and trying the natural version this time. Oh, and did find that using a punch works the best on these. The short filler, and looser roll will leave you chewing more than you smoke if you use the cutter. But again no biggie. At least in my opinion.
SM of Kokomo, IN
The best tasting cigar for the price I've ever had!! Wow, what a smooth draw!
CH of desert hot springs, CA
