“I purchased a box of Madura Toro Pioneer Valley Especiales and found them to be quite enjoyable. I set the last cigar aside in my humidor as a reminder to try them again. Two years went by and I finally lit up that last PV. It was still a great even burning smooth smoke just like I remembered them. Definately going to purchase another box of these cigars before they become popular and the price increase which is sure to follow.”
“Best mild-medium bodied $2 or less maduro in all of cigarland. Toasty & creamy with some dark cocoa-like zing to make things interesting. Jump on these before they're gone. Prices like this on a cigar this good and consistent so rare. Not a complex or evolving smoke, but satisfying nonetheless. Hope this is a regular production cigar because I'd surely miss it if it ever goes away.
“I think this one is a fine cigar offering an excellent draw, even burn and very pleasant flavour. It seemed to me to start out quite gentle and picked up strength as it went along. Certainly a good value.”
“Darn good stogie,for a damn good price its a real no-brainer,buy a box ,smoke and enjoy.Yokazuna!!!”
“Just bought another 2 box's they are a great smoke. Burn good right down to the nub. Hope they don't raise the price's on these. They are one of my new every day smoke's. I'am going to put my higher priced cigar's away for awhile and smoke these. CI did it again. Like they say make hay while the sun shines.”
“I didn't care for this cigar...at first. I normally don't smoke maduros but decided I wanted something a little different so I pulled the trigger on a box of toros because of the great price. I was immediately taken back by the quality of construction and the density of these smokes. They seem solid, but not a tough draw at all. Anyway, the first few I didn't care for, HOWEVER I'm not sure if they grew on me, or if a couple months in the humi did wonders or what, but man they sure are wonderful!!! I burn them down beyond the nub, right up till I can't hold on to it anymore! What a wonderful smoke! If you like maduros(or are looking for a variation on your normal smoke), grab a box and give 'em a month or two in the humi, you won't be disappointed!”
“I have had three of these now. They are a great cigar in every since of the term GREAT!!! I have been yet to find soft spots; they flavor is medium with a coffee to dark chocolate like at first then the last half progresses to leather, peppery flavor with some hints of cedar. The ash is very strong, too. The only questionable spot is that of appearance (which weighs very low on my list of a cigar snobbery). They are a little rough looking but for the price who cares, right!”
“True Story: I was smoking a Lil Monster ( Frank Jr) and I gave my cousin a P.V. Maduro from my 5 pack. I had yet to try one, so I took a puff of her P.V. ( don't give that etiquette crap) and I was shocked! After I finished my Lil monster, I polished of a pioneer valley Maduro. I'm going to smoke another today, and if its as good as it was last night...a box will be order 2 Day!!”
“Two words for you: Finger burner! I've smoked two of the torpedoes and both were superb! Great maduro flavor and even burn. They will definitely be part of my rotation. I smoked them both to the nub!”
“a great every day smoke!!! Decent flavor profile lots of smoke and well worth the price !!!!”
“I bought a box. With some time (just a couple weeks) they are acceptable for the price. Very mild though, I usually like my maduros to have more body. I figure with a couple months in the humidor they will be really enjoyable. The price is right for what they are.”
“My best friend's dad had a box of Torpedo's and let me try it about a month ago. After one taste I was craving the creamy coffee taste. He gave me one and I smoked it down to nothing. It held its flavor through and through, and since then I haven't smoked one that has "filled" my crave for the flavor this cigar provided. I ordered a box of Torpedo's for myself and at 40 bucks, it's a steal!”
“My best friend's dad let me have one about a month ago. I FELL IN LOVE! I ordered a box of my own and waiting for their arrival. The taste is as if I'm drinking a fresh cup of creamy coffee. NOTHING has fulfilled my crave for this cigar since smoking it! ORDER NOW!”
“Pioneer Valley maduro is one of the best cigars you will ever find at this price.”
“Top 5 favorites. Very tasty.
“OK so it was a maduro sampler weekend. At $1.50 each, (box price), the expectations were limited. In fact, they were one of those, "we can always send them back purchases". They are pretty darn good and for the price they are very good. Medium strength, nice construction, burn, flavor and draw. Art this price point you likely are prepared for much of nothing, but these will surprise you. Unless you can pick up something better, (5 Vegas Gold Maduro or Sancho Panza Double Maduro on sale, really discounted sale), you can't do better in the CI catalog than Pioneer Valley Maduros. Strongly suspect that if you give them a try you will buy them again.”
“This is a great cigar for the price. A very nice taste the entire way through. Burns well and good construction for these gems. Recommended as an everyday, dog walking, after work smoke.”
“Fine stick for the price. Reserved judgement after a half dozen smoked and they appear to taste and perform better each time. Best paired with coffee to complement the espresso and cocoa flavors present.”
“One of the best inexpensive maduros on the market..Very consistant burn with a rich taste.”
“Quality construction, full of flavor, at an insane price. Keep It Up You Guys!”
“Pleasantly surprised when I picked up a box of these. Wasn't sure what to expect. Hadn't heard much about these. Just wanted something different. These are worth a try...”
“Great smoke, really nice looking stick. Bought a box a while back on a daily special and was really surprised at how great they were. Passed a couple to some cigar snob buds that swear by $15 dollar smokes or better and they really liked them as well. Didn't even age them in my box. Recommend them highly.”
