Quality lacking making backeoods
I have been buying backwoods online and in local stores. I have noticed that at least 3 of 5 cigars at totally ruined (unsmokable) because of numerous flaws. I enjoy backwoods but I am considering quitting or finding something close so owing feel so disgusted throwing away cigars. I know I'm not the only one complaining about this problem. I'm baffled Backwoods hasn't noticed these reviews and has taken a look at the poor quality of cigars they are selling to loyal customers.

CUSTOMER SATIFATION ON THE DECLINE
Backwoods has to be my "go to" cigar during the week for the past 10 years. I buy 4 boxes twice a month. Huge savings by doing so. Backwoods has Been on the decline. I can honestly say that I throw away at least 3 cigars out of every pack because they are literally unsmokable. Anyone that smokes backwoods has to know what I'm talking about. The sad thing is that I love them and nothing really comes close to them. I was so upset once, that I returned my whole order back to CI. Please understand that this gripe has NOTHING to do with CI. I'm not sure if they are cutting costs or they just don't give a ****. If I can find something that comes close, I'd switch in a minute.

To bad you can't buy smokable Backwoods cigars!
Very very expensive! Considering only one or two cigars out of a pack of five are smokable. Most are rolled to tight and some are falling apart. Love the ones that are smokable but I won't buy any more untill I am sure quality has improved greatly.

Excellent product
I have always enjoyed Backwoods. However when you purchase them from the stop and robs they are dry or damaged about half the time. Being able to purchase them fro CI has greatly improved the chance to enjoy good little cigar.

A Very Good Cigar , Have Been Smoking " Backwoods ' Original Since They Were 8 To A Pack !!
A Very Good Cigar , The Honey Ones Are As Sweet As You Would Expect , But Don't Last VERY LONG . I Think I LIKE The " Originals" BETTER !! They Have A WAY To MAKE MONEY , I Used to Get them 8 or 10 Cigars To A Pack !! NOW, There Down TO 5 Cigars , But the Price , I Don't Know is CLOSE TO the SAME ?????

Backwoods Sweet & Aromatic
This is a delicious cigar however it is no way a 32 ring size. Half of the cigars can't be smoked since they have rolled one end so small and tight you collapse a lung trying to draw from them. Would be great with a true 32 ring size and better rolling of the cigar.

From Good to Poor Quality.
Backwoods used to be a real decent cigar. Now they are very average. I used to buy them a lot. Never an issue with quality. Now it seems in every pack there is at least one rolled too tight with no draw. Unsmokeable. The quality has become very poor. I rarely by them now.

I always enjoy Honey Berry Backwoods.
When I am in need of Honey Berry Backwoods, I search for the best prices, so I found that your company had the best price without having to buy an entire case. Without a discount, the price is too much for too little. I've been smoking backwoods for almost 20 years and can't find something that tastes as good with a great price. Thanks

Backwoods
Cigars International has superior price and service. My issue is with the product. Backwoods, it seems to me, is suffering from a quality control issue. The cigars are too tightly rolled and are not easy to draw. Perhaps some feedback from distributors would help. Additionally, I intend to relay this message to the manufacturer.

Backwoods cheroots
most cigars are pretty good in the packs. Here and there you get some that are to tightly wrapped or are cracked. Over all they have gotten a little bit better than past packs.

CI is a great place to purchase cigars. I am starting to question the quality of Backwoods the last couple of orders I have placed the cigars have had a lot of questionable rolls. A lot have been so tight that I could not smoke them others had lots of holes in the wrap. I will be ordering in a week or two and hope this order is better.

Quality and consistency
Love your Honey Berry cigars, really disappointed in the quality of the roll. I just purchased 2 boxes and 30% are either too tight and you can't draw or too loose and they fall apart.

Love the Backwoods but....
My favorite cigar bar none...but the quality of the wrap is very inconsistent. In a pack of five, one is broken,one is to loose,one is to tight, and two are just right!...might have to give them up soon...real shame.

Good when good, but not always so
I like these cigars, but quality is spotty. Not infrequent to find one which draws only with great difficulty, and occasionally one which must be discarded altogether as impossible to smoke.

Honey berry
The service and price can't be beat. But it appears the company making the cigars needs to check their quality control. Average of two cigars per pack of five are poorly wrapped and won't draw.

Recent purchase
Fast shipping, product arrived as described and fresh. Can't find a thing to complain about. Cigars ain't cheap and I don't always have time to smoke an expensive full sized one so backwoods are my go to favorites. Never harsh, always fresh and the best prices I've seen to date. Thank you, be seeing you again real soon.

quality control
I've smoked BackWoods for years and will probably continue but the quality control may cause me to snoop around. It is near impossible to get five good ones in a pack. Too tight to draw or full of voids which means sucking air.

80% of the cigars were clogged and unsmokable.
3 out of 5
A truly meh stick.
Smoked these things for years, mostly while working in the yard or woods. Mild and cheap, but quality control has slipped in the past few years. It's not unusual to have one or more in pack be rolled so tightly it can't be smoked without biting or cutting off a section. Fortunately through Cigars Int'l, I save significantly (even with shipping) over buying at the warehouse club.

A tasty cigar, but so many are wasted as they are rolled too tight, are ripped, or the outside wrap is broken.

Quality Control Dept. needed
These used to be my go-to's, but the quality has slipped to an unacceptable level, too tightly wrapped, different sizing, sometimes too moist and for the price there are better alternatives on this site. They always taste good, but without consistency I will seek other cigars as daily smokers.
2 out of 5
Too moist
Many times I've purchased these cigars and they are way too moist. Impossible to draw and hard to stay lit.

Cigars are smaller, and to tightly rolled. one out of five does not smoke and either has holes in it or the tobacco will not burn. I am a 20 year smoker and the quality keeps getting worse.

Not bad for the money. Quality control needs to step up FAST
I love the cigars and cigars international. But, it seems that quality control has slipped a few notches. I have at least 1 cigar per pack with a hole and some unravel and some are way too tight to even draw. I probably go through a pack and a half a day and throw out 2 of them. Thank goodness they are inexpensive.

Near Perfect
I heard a lot about these cigarillos, I needed to try them. Money well spent. Very nice body. The draw varies, some of them are rolled tight, inconsistency in this matter affected little to nothing. Smooth taste all over, overpowering berry but sure can taste the honey. Burn is slow and that makes it a good cigarillo to stop for half an hour and enjoy with a hard drink. Each pack varies as well, still able to seal it for freshness that lasts.8.5 out of 10

WAY ... Back Woods
I love the tobbacco and most people love the smell and don't fine it offensive at all, however, there is much to be desired regarding theit rolling. I find holes in the wrapper or sometimes one end is rolled so tight you can't get anything thru it. I have to discard at least 1 cigar in 8.
3 out of 5
2nd order not as good as first
One reason I sought out an online Cigar store for my cigars of choice is that all too often in the store they are either moldy or dry and stale to the point where I discard them. My first order, produced an awesome result. Fresh case of my favorite Cigars, each pack fresh, no mold and not stale. My second and most recent order gave me a stale, case, in which I ended up discarding the last two packs of 8, so needless to say, disappointing. I gave 3 stars due to the success of my first order, but I was not pleased by the 2nd order other than the convenience of front door delivery.
5 out of 5
A low-exertion "quickie"
These are great if you want a quick smoke, but don't have the time to commit to a whole cigar. I've had other shorties that have just been harsh, but these are consistenly smooth. Good taste and a rougish look...

Good value, but quality is lacking lately.
When these cigars can be smoked they are great, but unfortunately 1 out of every 10 or so cigars is unsmokable due to it being wrapped too tightly or having a hole in the wrapper somewhere. Being a good deal and a quick smoke will keep me coming back though.
1 out of 5
Backwoods disappointment
Backwoods used to be an OK quick smoke. Based on the past year's purchases, it is obvious the manufacturer has no quality control process in place. On average, two cigars per 5 pack can actually be smoked. From my last order, I went thru three 5 packs before finding one that could be smoked. In the past the issue was loose wrap or the occasional hole in the wrapper. Most common issue now is tight construction making draw impossible.

Backwoods Cigar Order
I have experienced on two different occasions that ordering Backwoods Cigars thru the Cigars International site has been awesome. The price is attractive and the service has been on point. The Cigars came to the house fresh and in excellent condition just like at the stores you buy them at. I will continue to order form this site as the experience has been very pleasant.

2 stars for the smokes 5 stars for cigars international
Cigars International is a great company but the Backwoods brand has lost much of their quality control. When they had 8 count packs, and were much cheaper, their quality was actually better. Now they are either wrapped too tight or there are holes in the cigars, both of which inhibiting smoke (which I thought was the point).

Very Satisfied
I am not a "real" cigar smoker. I just like to enjoy one every now and then with a good glass of bourbon. I usually order a variety of different cigars every month or so. I am very satisfied with CI. Their choices are endless. They send plenty of catalogs. Their site is very informative and their pricing is good. Shipping is incredibly fast. I would assume that a novice or professional cigar smoker would be satisfied with CI

Backwoods has a problem with the draw on their cigars

I'm always pleased with CI's service. I usually get my cigars in three days. And the free shipping is a great deal.
Customer Testimonials
Cheap, and you can find them almost anywhere. Allen and me don't have time plus we are not near a cigar shop. These are my go to. The wrapper is whole leaf tobacco, and the filler is tasty. Definitely a good alternative when you don't have the time, money, or availability of a premium cigar.
I enjoy these little smokes, has a chocolate brownie smell, cool draw, good light flavor when smoking and nice puffs of smoke.
Love these little smokes. Great when you're in a crowd. The smell of the smoke is not offensive to everyone. Great for the cigar and beer on the deck.
Love these cigars! Usually buy at least 4-6 of the 40 ct boxes every few months! Wish there was free shipping for them all the time.
Love these smokes; hate the 5 instead of the 8 we used to get. I also don't like the occasional 1 or 2 bad ones in a pack, with only 5 to start with. That being said, Cigars Intl is excellent and Backwoods are excellent cigars.
Very nice little cigars, I got the natural, gives a 10 minute break or so, good little flavor, but they really improve if you take them out of the individual wrappers and store them for a few days. I did that and smoked all 24 in about a week and a half. Good flavor and well worth the buy!
wild and mild all the way to the nub
It seems the quality just keeps going down and the cigars just keep getting smaller until they raise the price. The wrapper is getting so thin, it's hard to get a decent draw sometimes. Still, none of the competition really matches up for a cheap cigar.
My fiance loves these I share them with friends, they always go over great. First time I bought one box they didn't last, next time I bought two boxes we will see how long they last!
The Black & Sweets have a great taste and aroma. My only problem is consistency of the cigars: some are rolled too tight, others fall apart from being so loose.
Thoroughly disappointed in these. I had worked my way through a bale of Bandidos and wanted to try out something different for a quick smoke so I picked up a box of the aromatics after researching my options for quite a while. I wanted something quick and tasty, but not too small. I wish I had gone for more Bandidos instead. The Backwoods are really mild, and pleasant to those in the vicinity smelling the smoke. Their smell doesn't linger in/on me for hours and their aftertaste dissipates faster than most other cigars too. Though mild, they unfortunately taste pretty awful to me. I thought they were going to be a little sweet, but I'm not getting that at all. I keep craving a cigar and when I go out to have one of these I'm reminded all over again how unsatisfying they are. I'm not sure how best to describe them, but I guess the smoke tastes stale to me and there is no pleasure to be had gnawing on them. I don't recommend these and won't be buying them again.
I love the taste of the honey berry cigars, however, I am disappointed with the consistency of the construction of these cigars. Though some are good, at least a third of the cigars are in poor condition. On more than one occurrence the cigar broke in half when I was simply taking it out of the packaging. Because of the construction of these cigars, I would not recommend them.
Bye, bye Backwoods. I've had 20+ years of smoking Backwoods. I even stuck with them some years back when they jumped prices by going from the 8 pack to the 5 pack. The reason? The best very cheap mild cigar on the market. But not any more! Despite my 20+ year loyalty, I have always been very frustrated by the poor construction of Backwoods. Holes, tears, cigars packed too tight to smoke....
GREAT CIGAR. IT NEVER GET OLD AND I NEVER GET BOARD OF SMOKING IT. SMELLS GREAT AND TASTES AMAZING...
Tried one of the originals from Backwoods today, not that impressed, maybe I should have tried one of the flavored versions. Stuck some in the humi, to try to see if it can be seasoned some.
Good gar sometimes....seems the quality of the roll got better.
Meh....not terrible for quick smoke that you can get at most convenience stores when you're desperate. I much prefer the Ashton Half Corona for the quick smoke. The Ashton's not as easy to get and aren't $2 per stick...but much more flavor than Backwoods Original.
"Best Cigars" out there for your money! Backwoods Honeyberry!
Love these small cigars. Perfect for a 20 minute smoke, or if want some cheapies to bring with you on a trip. The original have a good cigar flavor and the honey berry are very sweet and have a good aroma. I've tried an aromatic one and didn't care for for it, but I personally think it was just a dud since it had a bad draw. The aromatic does have a nice cocoa scent. The honey berry is the most sweetened and flavored. Plus, they look freakin' awesome. I wish more cigars had a shag-foot. Pick some up for your next fishing trip.
Great, but just went up in price.
Smell better than they taste. I've smoked both the Sweet and the Honey Berry, and they both are extremely aromatic. But even after a few draws, the chemical taste starts to get me. Honey Berry is ok though, the sweet flavor makes up for the chemical after-taste. Very woody and warm flavored. Not bad for a quick smoke on the cheap that I don't feel bad tossing out half smoked, or smoking around others....they do smell amazing, and I've gotten comments on them.
Bad Economy and Currently Temporarily Disabled From a Car accident. My Daily smokes have changed DRAMATICALLY. Every day i used to smoke Padron Coronas with my Daily Coffee. NOW that my entire Collection (of non super premiums of which I am down to a full 50 ct Humidor.) of daily smokes are GONE! So my new daily smokes have changed and these are one of the good ones. It is Machine made and is made with "Aromatic" tobacco although It at least has a Real Wrapper (not that tobacco paper crapola) its a Broadleaf Wrapper and is a nice dark natural not consistent at all in the wrapping nor the wrapper leaves but these are not beautiful they are dry cured. IDK about binder IDK if they even have one I never bothered to dissect one. But I find them to be a GREAT choice when it comes to machine made Cheap Cigars. IMO the Aromatic flavor masks any inconsiderateness of the smoke so they always taste the same even though they all look different. In all in my book they are a good smoke for the price less than 65 cents each they will not break your budget. Also on a second note these are good beginner cigars they are dry cured ( i believe) and i dont think they require a humidor as they come in 5 packs sealed in foil and as long as you at least fold the wrapper (the foil one not the cigar itself lol) I have not had one that was too dry to smoke. Although the first cigars i started smoking were Honey or Vanilla C.A.O. Flavored Cigars I now know I was paying way too much for the smokes as these give C.A.O. a fun for the money. So, if your like me and can stand an AROMATIC cigar for a daily, if you cannot afford something better, or want a cigar you can smoke anytime with little maintenance. As not needing a cutter, a cigar lighter (disposable lighters work fine) or a humidor. these are Especially good if your looking for something to start smoking give backwoods a try! They also have a nice aroma and smell much better than $1 cigars even long leaf at that price. so like i already said if you haven't already try a box you'll smoke them.
Backwoods seem to be mini-cigars made with pipe tobacco. They do give an aromatic smoke that smells good even to non-smokers. But after one or two, you begin to get that chemical taste that most flavored tobacco cigars suffer from. The construction is very simple and to be honest, not much tobacco in each cigar. A good beginner cigar that you can find in any drug store, but there are better inexpensive flavored cigars at CI.
These things (Backwoods)smell like pipe tobacco. Skinny-looking things will almost inspire you to roll one yourself (if only you can find a place that sells whole tobacco leaves!) They taste perfect, mild, slightly sweet, with a reassuring smell that'd make you think of trees, log cabins, and cast-iron stoves. Unfortunately, QC is a concern: in a pack, there will be on average one or two that are a pain to draw on. They're good for a short break/escape, and on days off, you'll want to smoke three. Fun fact: if smoked in public, you WILL be approached by someone asking if you're smoking reefer, because well... they look like blunts.
A friend introduced me to these (Backwoods) and they have been a regular staple ever since. Most people comment at how they smell good (the Aromatics) and the flavor from the smoke isn't too overpowering with sweetness. There also isn't some faux flavor on the cigar itself to taint the smoke. CI has them for the cheapest of anywhere i have seen and CI will ship them anywhere as I used to get regular shipments during my tour of duty in Iraq....they were always there within a very reasonable time.
Can't beat these little cigars (Backwoods)! First of all, they are very masculine, right out of the Old Frontier days. They are just the right size---not to large so lighting one up is a time committment like a cigar. The smoke smells great, like a pipe, and tends not to be offensive to people around you. Finally, they smoke sweet and soft. One last thing...the flavored varieties are not over flavored, sicky sweet like many flavored cigars...or many pipe tobaccos. I don't know how Backwoods does it, but these are flavored smokes without overdoing the sweeting.
Backwoods are a great quick smoke made from the best tobacco there is in machine made cigars good flavor and no moisture concerns
I have been smoking these cigars (Backwoods) for about a month and these are definitly my go to smoke. Very flavorfull. Love how they look. Taste as good as candy all the way down to the nub. All time faverite and CI has them cheaper than the gas station down the road. WooHooo!!!!!
