Decent little smoke for the money.
Decent burn and flavor for the buck (much less actually). Good ash for a small ring-gauge but a little bitter and inconsistent. Worth a try at this price.

it's ok for a smoke, but I despise spitting out pieces of tobacco when i smoke a cigar. Yes I'm a chewer unless I spent more than $5 on the cigar it hangs in my mouth.... will NOT purchase these smokes again

good smoke, great price
For a machine rolled cigar the flavor and quality far outshine the price.

I thought these would be better but they were not. Tasted bad and burned poorly. Thank you for taking them back.

Good Everyday Cigar.
This is my everyday choice cigar. The construction is consistent and so is the burn and draw. I generally order the sweet, but like the natural just about as much. I keep some robustos around for the evening walk with our two dogs. A very good value and a decent smoke that fits in about any budget.

Theses cigars are a good
Theses cigars are a good everyday quick smoke. Inconsistent with fillers some smoke very easy some you really have to draw on . All in all good cigar for a great price.

Buy them and try them. The best bang for the dollar! I've had Cubans and this is my "go to" cigar which I like better than the big boys which cost a lot more. .75 cents, you can't go wrong!

Great cigar, full bodied for less than full price.
For the price I paid I never thought I'd get the quality. I've spent much more per stick for much inferior cigars! I'll get more of these!

Nice cigar. I tend to favor mild cigars and these fit the bill. Inexpensive enough to enjoy on the lawnmower or in the garage.

Everyday Cigar
Fine everyday cigar, nothing exciting - not bursting with flavors. Never had one that did not draw well. I buy these when I want cheap, but sturdy everyday cigars.

Excellent flavor and mildness for an inexpensive cigar. A few had “draw” problems, bit overall, the cigars were a good bar.

It's a very smooth cigar. No bitterness towards the end. This cigar is very enjoyable to smoke.

So - so.
Running about 25% poor smokes. Won't stay lit, horrible draw. The other 75% smoke fine.

Great for the money!
In this price range this is a great smoke. It's not gonna knock your socks off but it won't leave you wishing you'd spent your pocket change on something else either.

Smooth smoke for a smooth price.
Great smoke for the price. Every now and then I get one rolled too tight or too loose, but mostly consistent throughout. For a light and easy smoke, you won't lose.

A good cigar for everyday smoking
These are not the greatest smoke ever, but for .75 cents they are good cigar for everyday enjoyment.

Nice Cheap-ee....
A decent smoke, something to pass out to pals, bouncers at the club (feel like a bigshot) and get in quicker, LOL. They burn really well, perhaps some good wrapping and rolling of them, I enjoy them. I do wish they were a tad bit bigger, maybe a 60 gauge will be splendid. I keep them often, carry with me on my motorcyle, pull over and enjoy.

My friends call them "Lawnmowing Cigars" because it's a good cigar and the time they last is perfect for the job!
A friend of mine tried these first and offered one to me, and I've been buying them ever since. When I take a break from the $3-$6 cigars I normally smoke, C'est La Vie fits the bill!

Good deal
Ordered the churchils and found the 1st in or so very harsh. but rest of stick was very good and peppery with just a little sweet added. All burned good and none fell apart. So I just cut off the 1st inch of the rest..A good toro ! and very good price!

decent, smoke-able, yard-gar type stick. No huge flavors or wild experiences to write home about on these, just good mild smokes.

Great Deal
I am new to smoking cigars, I just smoked my first c'est la via sweet and I enjoyed it a lot. I did find it to be slightly tight for the first 1/3 of the churchill but after that it was great. It lasted about an hour, and the flavor is mild with just a hint of sweetness. for the price I am extremely happy and will definitely order more.

dont waste your get what you pay for
Had purchased these once before and they were a good basic occasional smoke. This order was extremely poor in quality. Did not draw....burned inconsistent...poor taste...spend a little more and get a smoke you deserve.

Customer Testimonials
Very fast shipping from CI. I am very impressed with their shipping. The cigars are nice; I had to smoke one out of the box, but very nice flavor, good smoke for the price. I would recomend to a friend
The best smoke for the buck. Taste is great, draw is also great and the burn is perfect! I've smoked genuine Cohiba from Cuba and these cigars are not far apart! Everyone's taste, wine, beer and cigars are all different. I took a few of these to the golf course for others to far, thumbs up!
This is my 3rd 20pk of these cigars, and one of my favorites. Mild, nice draw, sweet tip. I will continue to buy these.
A pretty good everyday smoke. I mean it doesn't burn evenly most times, but I don't mind that for the price I paid for these. Overall, never experienced a bite or bad draw. Although it didn't pull me in for more, I'd say if you want to enjoy a small cigar or you are just starting this a good choice.
My wife got 40 of these as some filler sticks for the humidor she got me for our anniversary. I really didn't think much of them by looking at them and she had told me that they were just cheapo sticks. After they sat in the box for 90 days I was in a pinch and broke them out when some buddies came by and we wanted a smoke on the porch. Now I am planning on reordering these "cheap" smokes! They are perfect for a quick walk or drive and after a bit of aging they are better than some of the much more expensive cigars in my box. Well done CI.
Can't beat the smoke for the price. Mild, fast burning, for kicking around.
A great daily smoke.
Burns well, stays together, good price. Not a good smoke though.
Love these cigars. Great deal. Want more, but out of stock. Very mild cigar.
I just started smoking cigars three months ago. I love CAO Gold and Monte Cristos. I gave C'est La Vie Robusto Natural a try and I love them for being good any time of the day cigars. They are a little to mild for me but they are cheap and won't burn your mouth.
Good for everyday. Some tunneling on a couple.
Not a bad little smoke...for the price...thanks CI!
Agree with all the reviews on what a great little cigar this is for the price. Perfect mild to slightly medium strength for kick starting the day.
Took a chance on the robustos, and glad I did. At about 30 into the bunch every one has had a good even burn with a very slight, non sickening sweetness. Good flavor with lots of creamy smoke at a good price. Will buy again!!!
Great cigar for the price! There's a reason they are on the best seller list. Good flavor, very smooth draw. You wont be disappointed!
I bought the C'est La Vie toro sweet ones to try as my everyday smokes. When I received my order I tried one right off the bat and was pleasantly surprised. I am no cigar expert but I know what I like and like these! The burn was good and the draw was easy and flavor reminded me of a Macanudo Café. I can't wait to see how they will taste after sitting in my humidor for a while. I would recommend these sticks to anyone for a everyday smoke at a good price. I have smoked more expensive cigars that didn't taste as good!
Great everyday smoke. A little bit inconsistent in firmness, but always tastes good. Great for mowing the lawn. Will buy again.
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?
Nice yard or relaxing time smoke - a mild spice and consistent quality for a cheap cigar!
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!
These are very good for a buck,taste more like a higher priced cigar,Best cigar i have bought for a buck
Good cigar for the price.
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.
Very nice daily smoke. Smooth and even, and well constructed. I really like them.
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!
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!
Cigars were well worth the money! Great taste, CI done it again!
Very pleased. Can't beat the price, mild and smooth. Great everyday, anytime of day smoke, will buy again.
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.
The best tasting cigar for the price I've ever had!! Wow, what a smooth draw!
For the price, decent. This was a Two-fer..Decent burn and mild..Good every day sticks...
draws well , good burn , wrappers don't fall off .. what more could you ask for a buck ?
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
Excellent. Very mild... ordering more now...
Every day or twice a day, these cigars do not disappoint and the price just can't be beat!
Best little cigar under a buck I've ever smoked... Keep 'em coming!
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.
Great smoke and a great price!
Very soft and mild. Wish it would burn a little slower or came in a larger length.
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.
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.!!!!
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.
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 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!!!!
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.
