Anthony from Canada
Grabbed the Shrapnel Sweets a few weeks ago in the deal section after my main purchase was done. Very happy with them! Great service, website, and shipping experience as a first time customer (downside no shipping directly to Canada). I will definitely be a lifetime customer. Cheers, Anthony

Nepal likes Shrapnel Sweets
These small cigars are the favorite smoke of the Nepal nationals. I send these over to my son who works with a NGO in Katmandu serving the remote mountain villages. Great smoke at 14,000 feet!

Size and Taste.
The size is just right and burns slowly. I find this cigar is a bit to harsh. All in all I find this cigar very pleasurable.

Great little cigar
Shrapnel Naturals are a great little cigar. The same great taste of larger cigars that you can enjoy when time is short.

Shrapnel: Time saver- no savor
Strictly a quick cheap tobacco hit when you have a 5-10 minute break and don't want to waste a real cigar. A 40 minute smoke condensed in 5 min. All the harshness with no love.

Bitter smoke with unfortunate acrid aftertaste
Mild and with an easy draw. Not a fan of the tobacco taste though. I usually smoke Acid c-notes and they are worth the price upgrade. The Shrapnel Sweets had a bitter taste after the first 5-minute burn and there is a definite aftertaste that lingers on the palate that doesn't jive with my preferences. YMMV however. Prices just right but I would not recommend over the C-notes.

Shrapnel Sweets
These cigars do not appear sweet at all. While they are not a total disappointment they are not sweet. They should be named "Shrapnel Tins".

good mild cigar
Very good mild cigar. the taste was not the best but I did find myself smoking them regularly. only complaint was the cigar would become fairly bitter after smoking for about five minutes. I would buy these again.

I have been ordering cigars from CI for years now, and have never been disappointed.

These are great little cigars when you want a quick mild smoke. I mostly enjoy them on short breaks at work, or after a lunch break.

They were not consistent in
They were not consistent in the draw and didn't stay lit very well, still have a lot of them left in my humidor. Trying to kick start them.

Excellent Mini
These little fellas seem to have just the right amount of everything I like in a smoke...freshness...hint of sweet and of course a very clean smooth tobacco flavor. "Nearby" friends always remark about their wonderful aroma.

Not bad now
The shrapnel natural was not bad . A lot of them was hard to draw through.Now I just got the sweets , now , so far the sweets are a lot better to draw through, I really like them. So whatever you are doing just tweak it up just a hair more and it will be good.

Started smoking these years ago
Started smoking these years ago when they were made by a different supplier, and liked the quality better, and then they switched supplier. Now they don't come individually wrapped, which is not as important as the fact that the newer ones are lacking quality control. One box will be so loose they are five minute smokes, and the next box will be thirty minutes, because you have to suck till blue in face to draw on it. There seems to be no consistency. RICK

Customer Testimonials
Buyers Remorse! I regret only buying a 50 pack instead of the 100 pack. These little guys (sweets) are a great smoke for around 15 min. Overall good times.
Great mini cigar, especially for golfing! Nice taste, nice burn, and great price! I highly recommend you try them out!
I have been buying these little tasty cigars for years. They are the perfect size for golf, poker, and going to Seahawks games. My only critique is that they are no longer individually wrapped.
Good short smoke, although some were broken.
Good little smokes. I'm always on the lookout for good cigarillos. These have definitely made the reorder list.
Good for a casual smoke. I got a few of my friends into cigars with these. Nice light flavor with a sweetness that is not overkill. Just remember to take it easy, it is easy to over heat them as your draw will heat these up more due to the small size.
These are great little smokes. Only had to cut a few to help the draw. Very sweet tip that goes away quickly. Don't leave a bad taste in my mouth like the Cuban Honeys. Just ordered more. Well worth the try.
Was hoping for a quit, decent, mini-cigar to enjoy during intermissions of sporting events or whatnot. I was very disappointed in this product. Taste at most times, was lousy. Very inconsistent as to the fill of the cigar. At most times it was as if you were smoking only the wrapper....
Quite disappointed in these little guys. I am a frequent smoker of the Banditos and figured I give these a shot. They are so small and skinny that I can smoke one in less than 3 minutes. The taste is okay, nothing special, but my banditos last me about 10 - 15mins and I was hoping for the same.
Very good little smoke when pressed for time. Not as sweet as expected but still worth having a box around.
A tasty and great short smoke, I have been enjoying them for years!
Unbeatable for a short smoke at work
Amazing! These are a great "quick smoke"...wonderful flavor!
Very good for a quickie!!
And, I might add, they are loosely filled, burn my throat, smell funny, and burn hot half way down. And don't stay lit? Too bad, because they used to be a great little smoke!....
Wow very impressed with these little guy's great for a quickie . I would definitely recommend them.
I'm not much on cigars, but prefer a pipe. Thought I'd try these, though. They are not bad for a quick smoke. Better than Swisher IMO. They have a slight sweetness and I'd put them at mild to medium body. Much tastier than a lot of more expensive larger cigars. Nice for a little cigar and pretty smooth to the end. I get about 10 minutes smoke if I don't let it go out, relights are still good to. I think they are dry cured. I've kept them in the original box for about 3 weeks now with no ill effects noted. Nice for when I'm on the bike or working in the yard. Nice price, too. I will probably order some more. They are not as sweet as Backwoods, but are better made.
Pretty darn good for what they are!
I got the Shrapnel Sweets and they are a great tasting little smoke well worth the price.
Shrapnel cigars are a great smoke. I love them.
Pretty good initial light and puff. I'm talking about the sweetness you get from this sucker. It's a great smoke after a meal because of the sweetness. The Tobacco isn't too weak or too strong. Other than that, the heat isn't to harsh and the tongue bite isn't noticeable. Like I said, smokes well after a good meal. Go try one out your self!
Good quick smoke not the best I have but still good for the price.
Great tasting little sucker. Keep a box nearby for quick fix, and in the car for break time
Good quick fix, nice flavor, sweet price.
Very tasty, smooth to the end, burn quickly, maybe smaller than stated....More like 26 to 27, but still a deal. Nice with coffee after breakfast.
A mini with some flavor! Well worth the mmao bid...
Not a bad little stick... good value for the money....If you're looking for a good value on an average stick you can enjoy in a short time frame... get this one.
The draw is a little tight, but the taste is great. I had a cigarette smoker and a Black & Mild smoker both ask me what these were because they smell so good. They are cheap, so I was like, here you go, try one for yourself. Apart from having to trim the butt a tad (to help with the draw), neither I nor my co-workers have any complaints with these little guys. I've also been using these in some infusing/flavoring experiments. Good results so far.
These came in very handy during my deployment in Afghanistan. I didn't need an hour or more of free time to enjoy a smoke. The sweets were by far my favorite. Smooth & good consistent flavor with no strong aftertaste.
Great little smokes, been sharing them with family and friends. They're a hit all around. Anyone who likes cigarillos is likely to enjoy these.
These are great little cigars. I bought a box to try and I loved them so much I bought several more and even gave one away to a good friend as a birthday gift. Very mild, sweet and well rolled, they are great for short car trips and for the price! Awesome!
Its like someone exploded a table of super tasty La Aurora big guys and then took the shrapnel and twisted the dark leaf wrapper around a remnant of a tasty matured Dominican into these homemade smokes. Each one is different in the termination and they are twisted in a tapered fashion. Your smoking mileage may differ as you puff to keep 'em lit and you will want to have clippers to cut end and tweezers to smoke these to the very limit. Best smoke of a dozen brands tried and as strong as the VS series 55 mini Corojo thanks to the dark wrapper
Tried about a dozen different little cigars looking for good flavor and smooth smoke without the bitter or bite. These do the trick nicely and come in at medium flavor of La Aurora clippings. Its a small length of full leaf wrapped with a spiral of what looks like a maduro of heavy dark leaf. These are very smooth and have great Dominican flavor. You will have to clip at least half of them as they terminate into a twist with various draw holes or none at all. Of course a twist of leaf and wrapper needs puffing to stay lit but its worth the mini me of a bigger tasty cigar. Better keep a bunch in your pocket as you will smoke em like a couch potato eats doritos.
Nice throw-down smokes. Price can't be beat. The smoke is really nice out of them, taste is good, burns fast but not a surprise given their size. Smoked a handful of them so far out of the pack and have not had any problems. Some have to be cut others are already open at the end for quick smoking. Each is individually plastic wrapped for on-the-go smokes. No complaints, well worth the price to stock up for when hunger strikes.
Aroma and taste were pretty decent and I liked them for that quality. But, draw on the few I have smoked has been the pitts. Got to keep drawing hard to keep it going. Does not produce a lot of smoke. I am smoking one right now as I write this review and I am not a "happy camper" because of the draw, way to tight. But, maybe this is just a bad one (draw wise) and others may prove to be OK. For taste and aroma pretty decent and would buy again. But, if follow up smokes prove to have the same hard draw, I will not buy again.
Big fan of the Sweets. Nice hint of flavor. Quick little smoke for when you don't have the time or don't feel like a full sized cigar.
The small cigars taste great. Kind of strong but very nice 15 mins smoking break. Get this if you always don't have time for a Churchill.
Taste great less filling
These little guys (Shrapnel) are great for a quick smoke. I ordered these last month and am loving the natural flavor. I now need to try out the sweets next time.
Mmm these are really good (Shrapnel), short and sweet like candy! It's pretty amzing how such a good small cigar can be as cheap as it is, definately worth the money. You will like these:)
A little smaller than i thought they would be but still very good in taste and even better value (Shrapnel)! go for the 100 deal, its a no brainer and is worth it.
This smoke is no joke. I have smoked almost every brand of small cigars, and these are by far the best. Great taste and smooth draw are rare in the little guys, but this one hits the mark on both. When time is short, Schrapnel Shorts fill the bill.
I'm a hunter and got involved in a bit of a fire fight. After all was said and done I escaped with my life and loins intact but took a good amount of bird shot in my legs and keister. So for the next 11 months I couldn't get around all that well. My friends thought it'd be funny to buy me a box of these here Shrapnel Sweets as a joke. Well no joke - these are good. They are sweet not like the big stinkers my Old Man used to smoke, and since they are so small you can smoke 20, 30, 50 a day! Short and sweet!
