Customer Reviews of “Graycliff G2”
G2 Pirates are my new every day cigar. After years of smoking RP and ITC torpedoes, I noticed a reduction in their quality. The G2 Pirate is consistently delicious and of the quality one expects from Graycliff.
SP of Fort Lauderdale, FL
I've lately been preferring very full-bodied, stronger cigars. But it's cold outside and the wife said I should just smoke in the house tonight. Being the thoughtful guy I am, I selected a G2 instead of a stronger one I got in a sampler and settled in for what I expected to be a pretty bland smoke. It's not at all. It's creamy, flavorful and quite exquisite. Constructed perfectly, burns perfectly, tastes wonderful with notes of cream, nougat, and nuts. I am definately getting more of these. A really good cigar.
DC of Beaufort, SC
Picked up some torps in a sampler. After one day downtime in the humi, I sparked one. Tasty! Toasty, nice spice through the nose, good flavor, a mild to medium well constructed pleasure. A good stick at a great price point. Especially for a Graycliff!
GF of Tega Cay, SC
I bought a some boxes of these to hand out at my daughters wedding. The reception was outdoors and folks were burning G2's all over the place. I got a lot of compliments on them and managed to end up with about 15 leftover for my own private stash. I've had a chance to relax with a few now and really enjoy the mild smooth smoke.
SC of Greensburg, PA
The G2's have been very consistent in taste and quality and are now my everyday smoke. For the price CI sells them at, I can burn one anytime I like.
SC of Greensburg, PA
Creamy, toasty and a hint of spice.Not usually a fan of the mild-med bodied stick, but this PGX Toro G2 is the exception.Tons of flavor without being in your face. And big booming clouds of smoke that have a very appealing aroma. Will always have these on hand.
BS of Slidell, LA
Got some of these on the CI thanksgving weekly special I really enjoyed these anytime mild-med puros. They provided really nice flavors ..sweet leather, cedar and nuts. They look ,feel and smoke like a $7-$10 stick. I can't believe it's only 3 bucks for a box??!! Gonna grab a box for sure.
LM of El PAso, TX
I told you a few years ago this is a great cigar, bout the dude who handed these out to his friends and they hated this lovely smoke. SNOBS! Every friend I have given one to is blown away, even the D.P.G, M.O.W, etc, fans This is a great cigar in any class. For you Conn. fans try them, you'll love them.
RD of Wausau, WI
They say you can't go home, for me this is true. But I can get a flashback of Moms fresh baked bread, just out of the oven, thick sliced, maybe lightly toasted with gobs of real butter. How is this possible you may ask? Well it happens every time I light up a G2. Is the somewhat doughy taste suggestion really true..? Oh ya! I bought a box of these on (June 22nd, 2010) sadly I am already on my last one. In humi's filled with Runations, big Gurkhas, Pepins, ect., oh yes and Gurkha Symphony's which are not nearly as mild. I got to longing for a good early morning with coffee cigar. "Go ahead" save the calories on those fatty pasteries, just spark one of these babies with your joe and you may as well be sittin right in your favorite bakery,(where cigar smoking is generally not allowed,) I might add. Oh and don't believe the veiny comment, these are flawless, all of them! I'm not big on Greycliff except for the 1666. / I will tell you now. CI has the best price on these and I just can't see it lasting. Buy em while the gettins good!
RD of Weston/Wausau, WI
I bought a box of these and only have four left. I've smoked quite a few, and I've given quite a few away. I'm not impressed, and neither were my friends. The G2 robusto consistently had a firm draw with an average amount of smoke. The flavor was decent though. Overall, an average cigar at best.
CH of Oviedo, FL
Let me set up this fan mail by explaining whats in my humidor right now. Its full of mild to medium cigars, with a few sample packs mixed in too. When I got the G2 I didn't know what to expect. After smoking it my opinion completely changed! It by far, beat the other 15 mild type cigars in my humidor. It is now in my top two cigars to watch for. Its clean, light smoke stood out from anything that I've had before. Definately a must buy for any mild cigar lover!
NT of St. Charles, MI
The wrapper was a bit veiny, but the structure was well put together allowing for a good draw and a compact ash. This cigar drew well and made for an easy smoke. It had complex taste that went with it in the beginning of the smoke a nice earthy and nutty flavor with a nice peppery finish. Although, as the cigar evolved the spicy peppery flavor began to overwhelm the rest of the flavors of the cigar. My suggestion is that if you are a fan of the spicy flavors of a cigar this is for you.
DF of De Queen, AR
A mild cigar with hints of tea and a medium finish. Nice, even burn with silver ash, ample amounts of smoke. Refreshing. One of my go to everyday cigars. Cannot go wrong with CI's price. Get them while their still "affordable"!!!
CP of Honolulu, HI
has anyone had the pleasure of trying a G2 ? I've heard soom good things but it would be nice to hear from those who have actually tried them
JT of Fall River, MA
Ah, my morning is off to a great start now. I got a G2 Toro from CBID and I am so glad I did. I was a bit skeptical, having seen some reviews say this stick was bland and lifeless, what a pack of lies. This cigar is wonderful as a breakfast cigar with a cup of coffee. However, given it's mild to medium body profile, I would suggest eating at least a doughnut or something of the like prior to smoking. I don't feel sick or anything, but there was definitely a shift in strength and I can feel it still. I'm buying a box!
RT of Machesney Park, IL
Wow what an awesome stick and the limited time price.This is a mild cigar for everyday smoke! Thanks CI will be picking more up soon.
DA of Ellsworth AFB, SD
These are great! An inexpensive GrayCliff will not disappoint, what a nice even burn! Mild, great in the hot tub!
MM of Cumberland, MD
FINALLY ! I had the privilege to sit back and enjoy a G2. I enjoyed it so much I ate the wrapper off the second one . Just kidding. I handed some out on New Years day to some friends and family members and not one person had anything negative to say about it. This cigar is welcomed in my humi. anytime alongside some other great cigars Thanks C.I.
JT of Fall River, MA
I received my first CI sampler recently, and the 1st cigar I smoked was my g2...I admit that I am a total amateur, but I found this one to be a complete joy to smoke...I had it with a nice Doghead IPA 90 minute ale. It was better at the last 4 inches.
DC of Beverly, MA
After reading the mixed reviews of the G2 I didn't really want to spend the $$ for a cigar that I wasn't sure of. But when I saw the Massively Mild sampler fleshed out with the Perdomo Reserve Champagne which I love, and Gurkha Symphony I always enjoy I figured why not. I just finished the Graycliff ’G2’ Pirate Torpedo and the only bad thing I can say about it is that it was over too soon. I immediately wanted to light up another one. It had an easy draw and burned down completely evenly. I wont try to talk about flavors, that's too subjective. I will say that if you enjoy the 5 Vegas Gold, the Perdomo Reserve Champagne, and the Gurkha Symphony you will be very happy with the Graycliff G2. My next order will include a full box of the Graycliff ’G2’ Pirate Torpedo.
DP of Minneapolis, MN
Love the G2 Torpedo - one of the top five cigars smoked in 2011! A real pleasure - one is never enough.
CJ of Averill Park, NY
Fantastic Smoke! Mild but very flavorful. They have a permanent spot in my humidor and rotation. I usually prefer medium to full bodied cigars. The G2 may be mild but it makes up for it in taste. Do yourself a favor and buy a box today.
CJ of Sallisaw, OK
Got a couple of torpedo's in a sampler. Great tasting cigar with even burn. The two I smoked had poor draw, hoping I just got a couple that were wrapped a bit too tight. Maybe they are suppose to be like that, but I perfer not to turn blue when drawing.
JA of Shoreacres, TX
Has anyone tried these? I'm interested in hearing any feedback before I purchase any. I read the staff reviews and it sounds o.k. but you don't know what to expect until you tried them and there all on backordor'
JT of Fall River, MA
I just tried the Graycliff G2 torpedo I got in a sampler and loved it right down to the nub. Burned beautifully and evenly with a smooth draw. Even when it was set down for a few minutes it didn't go out, allowing me to resume my enjoyment. This will definitely be added as a regular.
MS of Fort Myers, FL
Some how when I was in college I missed the class that introduced you to the taste of leather, wood, charco, paper, and all the other words some use in describing a cigar. What I do know, this is a cigar that I will have no problem in purchasing them by the box. It is as smooth as any cigar I know of, but not so much that you don't notice the flavor. No burning of your mouth or tongue all the way down to the buring of your fingers since you don't want the cigar to end. Shame on you CI for including this in the sampler pack. You knew that this would create a rise in purchasing this cigar. Then again, it was a great way to introduce this smoke to all those who purchased the sampler. I can't say enough on how much I have enjoyed every samper pack I have purchased. Each one has included a smoke that creates a purchase on my part of certain cigars in the group.
DM of Taylor, MI
This is one beautiful cigar! It just does not have a flaw. I bought a bundle of another brand(that was a disappointment to say the least) and was offered a five cigar sampler by the sales clerk over the phone.It turned out to be one of the best decisions I've ever made.This is one of the best cigars I've ever smoked. I'm ordering a 20 pack right away! And one more thing:the price is a steal at less than 2.50 a pop! I highly recommend it!
BL of Philadelphia, PA
I'm not a cigar aficionado, but, the G2 Pirate is a damn good cigar.
JF of Springfield, VA
This is a well made cigar, but I made a mistake by smoking it when the sampler pack arrived. I didn't take CI's advice on leaving it in my humi for a few days after receiving. Becase of this, the draw was tight as if it had been in a higher humidy level. I was able to smoke the cigar by using a slim punch I have. It is a well made cigar, not meant for those who prefer mild, but not to strong for those in the middle. While I enjoyed the cigar, I like the Diesel Toro much better than this one.
DM of Taylor, MI
If you like mild-meduim bodied cigars then the Graycliff G2 should be on your radar. The G2 is a mixture of nicuraguan and dominican tobaccos that create a smoooth flavor without being overpowering. There is also some spice to this cigar along with the mild-medium body which keeps it from being boring like so many bargain basement "mild" cigars. Draw is better than some reviews claim, I keep my humidor around 68% and havent had any problems with draw. These cigars are easily worth the price and considering what most graycliff cigars sell for the G2 is a great deal.
SM of Alburtis, PA
Well I bought some of these G2 a few months ago and was really surprised, smooth. I am getting ready to order some torpedos. I love good cigars , but now, why should I try anything else, as long as I have my G2
LA of HOUSTON, TX
Pretty good smoke...good draw, even burn, however it left a pretty bitter after taste...not sure if I got a bad batch...all in all, its a decent smoke
SA of Fort Worth, TX
This is a decent cigar at a decent price, nothing less, nothing more.
PN of Chula Vista, CA
This one hits all the marks good feel, good wrapper, easy draw, even burn, good ash. It was a little milder than I usually prefer. I didn't like the flavor all that much but for the price it is definatly worth a try. Flavor is such an individual thing. Overall a good smoke.
JL of SARATOGA SPRINGS, UT
New to the game and haven't really smoked a lot of mild sticks yet, but this one is pretty full of flavor for how mild it is. Smooth draw, lots of thick smoke, and several flavors throughout(creamy, light pepper, hint of coffee). I'll be buying more no doubt, not only for myself, but to share with friends.
MJ of Texas City, TX
These are very mild cigars and in my opinion, great for a morning coffee break.... I was skeptical at first, but so far, this is my cigar to start the day or even when I want to give my taste buds a break. They are very cheap and CI does a good job in keeping these babies in my possession. Great for newbies who are getting into the cigar world. They will have a special place in the a.m. .... Thumbs up!
VM of Alachua, FL
....Given the limited choices of cigars between some European and American machine-mades, and on the other extreme end, the authentic and very expensive Cuban cigars that are available....here in Tehran (Iran), tried this G2 Robusto with delight. Need to mention that, amazingly, it had retained much of its moisture due to the use of cellophane. And after a few days, allowing it to rest and gaining back some of its lost moisture, was time to smoke. Mild, sweet, creamy and with a very sweet aroma. A good cigar for an introduction to hand-mades perhaps for someone used to smoking machine-made cigars .... A gateway indeed to hand-made cigars in general for the novice, or for those who just enjoying mild cigars or looking for a change of pace.
HG of San Diego, CA
I personally found it to be more towards mild rather than mild-medium. Burned well, evenly the whole smoke. Also burned very cool down to the nub, a huge plus in my book. 50 minutes for a Robusto to the nub. Very smooth and creamy from start to finish. I wouldn't buy a box, but if a 5 or 10 pack came along on sale, I would grab it for morning with coffee smokes. Not bad, not great. Had better cheap sticks, but had worse; ALOT worse.
PM of Jersey City, NJ
I received one of these Graycliff G2's in a sampler and I must admit I was thoroughly pleased. Mild to medium flavor very nice draw. I heard a lot of negative things about these cigars, but I'm beginning to realize that in the cigar smoking world, don't knock it until you try it yourself.
JV of Beachwood, NJ
I have ordered these since CI first offered them and keep coming back for more. These are my favorite mild cigar. The Robusto size is perfect for a short smoke, with a light flavor of yeasty bread and almond. Unlike some other mild-light cigars, these won't dry your mouth out, yet perfect with a morning cup of coffee or with friends at a card game (an advantage here because they won't make the room spin and throw off your game).
SL of ELMWOOD PARK, IL
Graycliff G2 bought the sampler pack on sale, best purchase yet, with a month or 2 of humi time. Core flavors are of Cream, Leather, and Sweet Nuttiness. Medium finish. Flawless construction. Perfect easy draw, no touch ups required, even burn. Great mild cigar in the AM. Would try the Gurkha Elegance, Park Avenue, and Castlehall if you like cream and leather. I rate G2 an easy 89
VF of margate, FL
Well constructed, burned nicely, but... where's the flavor? I like a mild smoke now and then, but this was all air.
MS of SOMERVILLE, NJ
I'm reluctant to write such a positive review about this inexpensive cigar for fear of them increasing their prices but if there is a better 2 dollar cigar out there, I haven't found it. It lights perfectly, has a nice draw and good flavor. The ash is Montecristo-ish with creamy smoke. It's a 6 dollar cigar for 2 bucks. I travel with cigars and usually offer this to novice smokers. By the end of this stick, they are thinking about getting into cigars. If you like a mild smoke, you must try this stick as it's the most punch for your dollar you will find.
RC of Ashland, VA
Took one of these out last Halloween (dressed as a 20s mobster, so the cigar fit the character). Great construction, even burn, flavor consitent throughout, and it stayed lit through the light drizzle! Very impressed with this cigar.
JH of Albion, NY
The Graycliff G2 Pirate torpedo is a consistently good smoke! Opening a new box will give you smoking pleasure from the first individually wrapped stick until the last!At less then $60. A box the recent 20% off that CI has been offering has made this guilty pleasure really quite affordable! Thanks CI, just ordered another box!
LE of Sarasota, FL
Smoother than a politician running for re election.
SC of GREENSBURG, PA
Very good mild cigar, enjoyable anytime of the day! Another winner from Graycliff.
CM of Lindenwold, NJ
I agree with many here - The wrapper is a little fragile, but the smoke is smooth, even and delicious. These will always have space in my humi.
MP of Benton, AR
A good cigar.
EW of Virginia Beach, VA
I had this cigar sitting in my humidor resting a bit. I purchased a five pack awhile back. I pulled this guy out and toasted the foot. Quickly noticing the fantastic aroma. The smoke had a good draw with lots of ash. Tasting a mild smoke with nuts and cream. The ash was silver and held on tight. I found myself puffing abnormally fast because it was so delicious. I smoked this to the nub, taking in the aroma and bellows of smoke. I will smoke this mild-everyday cigar more often. I'll keep this guy in my humidor.
AG of AURORA, CO
Smoked my first G2 just after putting some recently purchased upper-tier Graycliff's down for a nap. Amazing cigar, this one. The burn was perfect, even ash and never needed a relight even when left sitting for a few minutes. Flavors range from a jasmine-like floral quality to a sweetness not unlike a graham cracker or gingerbread. I am so impressed by this little G2 that I can't wait to try Graycliff's more premium offerings. Even so, these sticks will likely become humidor staples in this house.
RM of Portland, OR
The Graycliff G2 is my favorite stick. I purchased a box when they first came out, some years ago now, and still purchase boxes to replenish my stock regularly. I love this cigar because I can smoke it anytime, anywhere, on any occasion. It has been great cigar to assist in bringing buddies to the cigar smoking experience. The tobacco is flavorful, but delicate enough for new smokers. The creamy smoke and aroma not only enhance the flavor, but also help with the visual ambiance that cigar smokers look for. You will not regret this cigar.
JD of CASTRO VALLEY, CA
I have smoked at least 60 of these in various sizes in the last two years and they are my favorite Connecticut wrapped cigar without question in the correct size. They all burn very well and have an excellent draw producing huge clouds of smoke with minimal effort. I have found that these hit their stride between 3-6 months of aging, if you can wait that long. The toro and robusto sizes are my favorite for sure, providing me with an hour or 40 minutes of smoking time respectively. The description is spot on after 3 months, and if you manage to wait 9 months or more you may even pick up some vanilla. Early on these display some pepper on the first 1/3, especially the foot. This mellows out after about 4 weeks and is mostly absent after a few months. The wrapper cuts cleanly 4 out of 5 times at least and has a nice chewy elastic texture. The smoke is creamy with a semi wet mouth feels and is very nutty, somewhere between peanuts and cashews. The smoke finishes semisweet with cedar and is thick and white. Ash is about 2 inches consistently, and very tight. Unfortunatly I have had bad luck with the Pirate/torpedo size turning bitter towards the end. The smoke is mild-medium for the majority, turning to a medium body the last third with a bit of medium roasted coffee entering the flavor profile. I highly recommend these and cannot wait for the up and coming Maduro version, as I also smoke quite a bit of the maduro variety up to and including full bodied cigars.
JJ of Hanover park, IL
Am excellent smoke! Mild and smooth without over powering sweetness and a real ciger taste. Great balance!
DT of Toms River, NJ
After a rum tasting & cigar rolling at the Graycliff I knew I had found the perfect brand for me. True to what they say every cigar is perfect. I bought a box of theses and just love them. I know it's not their top of the line cigar, but for the price, they are just perfect. These cigars are a great smoke, working out in the yard or just hanging out with your friends. The smooth draw and great aroma makes them a wonderful cigar. I will not hesitate to buy more, box or mazo doesn't matter to me.
SR of JACKSONVILLE, FL
This is a great cigar for the price. I smoke on average 3-4 cigars a day so I am constantly searching for a quality cigar at a good price and this is currently on the top of my list.
JH of Sioux Falls, SD
A few years ago I was likely only one of a few buying these little gems but apparently the whole world has discovered the incredible bargain and delicious taste of the G2. I always keep 15 or 20 around for those gatherings around the firepit with my buddies. I used to pay over $8 a stick for other brands that didn't quite honestly match the flavor of this sub $3 stick. It's my go-to smoke and pairs great with pretty much whatever you have to drink.
CS of LAS VEGAS, NV
Always a great mild smoke.
DM of DANVILLE, CA
