Not Good
I have tied and enjoyed other selections from Cult Cigars, but found no redeeming qualities to Blood Red Moon.

I much preferred the figurados to the mini coronas.

Very good I would order again
I am fairly new to cigars and would occasionally smoke a Macanuda. I found the Blood Red Moon to be full of flavor and a real joy to smoke. The gauge and length were perfect for a half hour smoke, which is about the most my wife will put up with.

MILD-MEDIUM BODY
I was expecting an intense spicy, and red pepper bomb. Well, that didn't happen. I was disappointed at first, but the second and third sticks I smoked, I appreciated it more for what it is. A mild-medium body, with mild to medium strength. The primary flavor is red pepper spice, but its not super strong, other flavors of mature tobacco, cashew nut, and a light subtle leather on the finish. If what I described is what you are in the mood for, then give these a go. I think this cigar is a good choice for a new, or casual cigar smoker, or someone interested in the lighter side with a little spice kick.

Not As Good As Advertised
I bought two boxes of these (10 cigars) and will not buy any more...two of them had almost no draw. Several of them got too hot to hold (only half-way down!). The taste wasn't too bad if you discount the harshness.

Awesome smoke!
I love these little gems. Probably one of the best 1/2 hour smoke I have ever tried. I will definitely buy and smoke these in the future. Plus, CI is the bomb, I love you guys and gals that work there. Keep up the fantastic job.

A Good Little Cigar
Small, robust, and even smoking all the way down.

Strange Name but Good Cigar
Mild with a slight spice. Nice quality stick, and burns well. Can last up to an hour (if you enjoy it and happen to be locked in conversation about who will win the game). I still don't get the name....

Ok smoke.
Ok smoke. Good flavor. Hot boxes very easy. Poor construction and humidity control.

harsh
a little harsh for a medium cigar

Nice small cigar
Tasty blend well constructed except for the foot on the perfecto. You usually need to cut 3/8" off the foot and even then it doesn't draw well until it burns to the shoulder.

Nice little smoke. Easy to
Nice little smoke. Easy to light, has an even burn, and the medium full body wrapped around nice earthy, spicy flavors are an extremely enjoyable smoke. I really needed a 20-30 minute cigar and this one more than fills the bill.

The Magic of the Blood Red Moon.
Do not expect this perfecto to overwhelm you at the start. But give it a few puffs. Then the intricate flavors start to emerge. This is a one to experience - so take your time with it.

Wonderful stick
Great flavor, wonderful mouth feel! I will without a doubt buy them again!

Awesome!
Amazing smokes. They are slightly bigger than I expected. These suckers are packed with flavor. A solid medium body. I love the smaller size, which I believe contributes to the super rich maduro flavor. More wrapper, less filler. The price point is just a bonus. They are easily worth 3X the price.

Smoke well but was harsh taste

Jolly good!
i bought a 5 pack of these guys when they hit the streets for less than $10. I kept them in the humi and had one every couple of months. They have been a good smoke from the get go. Well I had one left lingering around at the one year mark and decided it was time to toast it. I was taken aback by the flavor and smoothness after aging for a year. Waiting for them to get down to that price point again. Recommend.

Blood Red Moon
These cigars are very good with a unique taste profile , kind of like between a Joya de Nicaragua and a Drew Estate My Uzi wat...I've been smoking premium cigars for over 25 yrs including a lot of top end sticks and i recommend trying these , I've smoked all sizes in the BRM and each gives a different flavor profile...got one of these at the 2016 CI Cigarfest event and liked it so much i bought some boxes.

tasty morsel
Great short smoke. Economical as well. Bought a 5-pack ‘em for the small size and easy-to-lite perfecto, but found them to be quite flavorful. Now I buy the 50-count!

Love them!
A friend recommend them to me as a full size cigar was too much for me. They smoke and taste great!

Great Little Cigar
The tobacco is densely packed but the draw is easy. Lots of smoke and medium strength. I bought these because I wanted a shorter smoke for commuting, but these last a good 45-minutes due to the quality construction.

Awesome Quickie
Great little cigar. Anytime you don't have the time for a big cigar, you cannot go wrong with these little babies. Great burn, lots of tasty smoke. Have tried the conn. and habano and loved them both. If you buy only one 5 pack to try, you will wish you had gotten more!

Pretty Good Little "Gar"
Goes well with a shot of Bourbon. Burns well tip-to-tip. Could be aged a bit longer to smooth out the rough edges

Yes! Judge a book by it's cover.
They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, which goes double for cigar packaging, but I couldn't help my self. And I wasn't disappointed. These are great little short smokes. Absolutely delicious with a decent volume of smoke. Sometimes you want something more than a cigarillo, but you don't have enough time for anything substantial. Brothers and sisters, this fits the bill and it won't set you back an arm and a leg. They are well crafted, and a regular inhabitant of my humidor--when they aren't being smoked to a fine gray ash. An a side not, I'd love to get my hands on some of the advertising artwork to boot.

Perfecto is right
Best little smoke. Just right mildness. Great cigar
3 out of 5
Not Bad For a 'Tweener Smoke
Like all cigarillos that try to mimic full sized cigars, this one tends to burn a bit hot, but not bad enough to ruin the flavor totally. Well worth a try
4 out of 5
Wrapped to tight
They are a very enjoyable short smoke, but in the box of 50 I purchased at least six were wrapped so tight you could hardly smoke them - disappointing
3 out of 5
Balanced little cigar
Great balance of classic flavors: creamy texture, slight sweetness, some mouth spice, a balanced bitter finish. Let them rest for a while, they come out of the package quite strong!

I'm almost hesitant to give this little corona a good review...
because I don't want them to sell out or the price to go up! These are a tremendous little smoke for what they cost. I smoke two to four cigars a day, and sometimes you just want something quick and they make a great after-work treat.

they're decent
Start out quite mild and then pick up some caramel and such about halfway down. Not bad but certainly not great imo.

needs aging?
after smoking several of the Blood Red Moon , I feel that they may need time aging. They are a bit rough and unrefined.

Quite the fire cracker!
Good consistent construction with no issue to burn. Not a real complex blend but satisfying if you like full body cigar. Good selection for those moments you're short on smoking time. Definitely not an AM smoke - pairs well with a whiskey in the evening! 3/5 BUD

Great flavor in these cigars.

Great quick smoke.
Smoked two ROTT (couldn't wait). I was not disappointed. Nice construction, nice draw and lots of tasty smoke. Great little smoke with a good flavor. Can't wait to try the others after a month or two of rest. I will be back for more.

I did try one when I got them, hard not to. It was pretty good but I still have the rest in the humidor and waiting on those.

Full size flavor from a little cigar.
This will not be for everyone good burn lots of smoke perfect for a short smoke but it is on the full side of medium very spicy I love them as soon as you receive them take out of the cardboard box and get them into your humidor after a month or longer if you can wait they mellow out and are fantastic.

Blood Red Moon Mini Corona
Funny name, serious flavor at a good price point. I've purchased three fifty packs. Since I'm not known for beating my head against walls, I must like them. Recommended for anyone wanting 20 minute medium/heavy body smoke.

GREAT SMOKE!
THESE SMALL CIGARS ARE VERY TASTEY AND SMELL GREAT. GET YOURSELF SOME YOU WILL LOVE THEM!

They were okay
I purchased these as an alternative the the AF Hemmingway short stories that were back ordered. They had some burn issues and needed to be touched up. Flavor was ok, nothing noteworthy. I know the Fuente's are costly, but they're still my favorite small cigar.

Excellent little cigar
For the price you can't beat these! Excellent flavor, very strong yet extremely smooth. I purchased a 5 pack just to try them as i never heard of them and was very pleasantly surprised. I plann on purchasing a few boxes very soon.

Strong and stinky
I smoked two of these and should have stuck with my regular cigars which burn better and do not have a rancid odor. The after smell on me was pungent. Tried since smaller ad more convenient for a poker break but will stick to the cigars that I obtain in the CI Cigar of the Month Club.

BRM is a very tasty cigar. Full of flavor and very smooth.

A lot of cigar in a small package
Solid construction and reliable burn. Very smooth but noticeable strength (medium-plus) from the first full puff along with rich flavor of aged tobacco. Ample smoke output with enticing aroma. Great choice when you don't have enough time to smoke a larger stick and gives you much more satisfaction than a cigarillo.

Bad draw
wouldn't stay lit . I ended up throwing away half of them away

Love the blood moon red
Love the blood moon red cigars. The Perfect and Corona have a great taste in a small cigar. Great for a quicker smoke. Hope they keep the price down though because it is s short smoke.

Waste of money.
I have had these once in the past and was a great quick smoke. But this last box I purchased. I ended up wasting 3 of the 5 just because it was just to hard to draw. Very unsmokable, poorly constructed. Like I said I got a sample pack from CI in the past as a freebie, and the were great. But will be hesitant to purchase again....

Big promise, ehhh delivery
I was looking for a quick taste little smoke and this ain't it. It does draw well and burns evenly, but was a bit to one dimensional for me

take your time
The Blood Red Moon robusto should be smoked slowly, when there are no distractions, no competing demands for your time, and you can give it your undivided attention. This cigar deserves it. Mellow but solid, tasty but not overwhelming, truly an enjoyable hour spent. I managed to smoke one off during the recent blood red moon lunar eclipse, which just seemed poetic.

Small Cigar with a Big Cigar taste
Blood Red Moon is a small cigar that explodes with the taste of a big cigar..slow burning , mild with complex flavors it offers the smoker a delicious taste that's unique and quite enjoyable.

Blood Red Moon
The first Blood Red Moons I purchased were nice short smokes so I bought another 50. These draw so hard that I end up cutting both ends back to start. There won't be another order.

Great Little Corona
This is a fantastic little smoke with a bunch of flavor. It starts off a little firm in the flavor department (I don't want to say harsh that's why I use the word firm), then mellows out quickly and turns into a creamy delicacy for any cigar smoker. Not to mention that they are a great value, this is one of the cigars I keep in my rotation all the time.

A little too hot at times
Nice small cigar but it gets a little to hot to smoke. Could be just a little longer or thicker.

Not too good. Rather dry and harsh.

Big Hype, ok Stick...
I've had 4 fivers of these in ems & maduro and they taste good but out of those 20 sticks, four had serious draw issues. I've bought my last.

Nicaraguan firecracker
Bought a 5-pack of these on the intro special and was pleasantly surprised. They turned out to be little Nicaraguan firecrackers worth ordering again and again if you prefer a shorter smoke. Plenty of flavor, easy draw, medium body, and a genuine Nicaraguan flavor profile. Am not sure if I'd spring for the eight five-packs at one time. but these were to my liking.

Blood Red Moon Maduro
Fantastic value for a smaller Maduro. It burns and tastes just like the big guys!
1 out of 5
Good marketing...terrible cigar.
I had high expectations for this one. A smaller sized cigar for those times when I can't devote an hour to a full size stick. I read the reviews and had high hopes. Boy, was I wrong. I can look past the odd shape and see the bright side I'm everything, but I found these to be bitter, unbalanced and rough. I shared with my cigar smoking friends and the consensus was the same.... yuck. I really wanted to like them.

Excellent Quick Smoke
The Blood Red Moon Cigars offer cigar smokers a chance to enjoy a great cigar when we don't have a lot of time to enjoy a full stick. The natural and maduro versions are excellent. I highly recommend that you try these.

Perfect Perfecto
Just right with the Wall Street Journal and mug of coffee. A great aroma and taste, in a size makes for a quiet morning treat before a busy day. Good value is always a real plus.

Outstanding little smoke!
Love these little guys. Great for when you have time for a short smoke. Haven't tried the maduro wrapper yet, but the habano wrapper is so tasty I think it can't be beat. Repeat order for me. Have gifted a 5 pack to a friend who loves it as much as I do. Get them while they are on sale!

All day, every day.
Good price, good smoke whenever short on time or just want to give yourself a treat. I have bought these several times and they don't disappoint.

Not worth it
Put simply, I thought these cigars were too strong for my taste and tasted "bad."
3 out of 5
Rich, Creamy and Sweet
These have a rich, creamy, sweetness and you can taste some very mild nutmeg and cinnamon in them. For me these are more of a curiosity than a cigar I would want to pull out when I'm in the mood for a smoke. They are good, but just not my cup of tea.
5 out of 5
Big Cuban
This little guy is full of flavor. It reminds me of smoking a real Cuban. I will buy these often. Get this I'm not a smoker,go figure.
Customer Testimonials
I received these free as a premium on another order. I have to say that I've been wanting to try them for a while, the artwork really is striking. They are good little cigars....not too complex but not bland either. For $9.99 per 5 pack you really can't get hurt too badly if you're looking for a little cigar.
Must admit, wasn't sure about these at first. Stuck with them and found them to be a nice little cigar to have in the humidor, especially when time is a factor. Only issue, on average one out of five are rolled too tight or have a stalk in them that impedes draw. Can burn a little hot.
Got these from a promo at lest 5 months ago. Smoked one a week or so after getting them and did not care for it all that much. THEN I decided to light one last night and wow... this is a good little stick. Unique taste, nice burn for the shape, and was great with my jack and coke. Keep the promos coming CI!
Damn fine little smoke. If they could get the price down to the $1.00 - $1.25 range, I'd buy a boatload.
These are uniquely flavorful little smokes! I'm not big on assigning flavors to cigar profiles, but as one reviewer already said "almost nutmeg" really nails it (maybe butterscotch?) Anyway, I got a free 5-pack and came back to order a brick of 50. IMO they don't need any additional aging, but seem like they'll get better over time.
I received these as a promo and was expecting them to be a low grade deal. I was 100% wrong. Everything about these was pleasurable from the ease of the cut to the even burn to the rich but mellow flavor. I was considering giving them to a friend, but after I tried one I was selfish and smoked them myself. A good relaxing 30-45 minute smoke and well worth a look at for any cigar enthusiast.
Impressive. As these were given to me as a free promo with my order, I did not have high hopes. We all know these incentives usually consist of poorly accepted stuff nobody wants to buy. I was pleasantly surprised. These are definitely not cheap fad sticks. Nice construction (however unusual), nice bold flavor, and a solid medium body. I was especially surprised at how long it smoked. I expected a 20 minute quickie. It lasted almost an hour. Thank you CI!
Love the shape of these prized cigars. Tasty short smokes. Got them when they were on clearance. Wish I would have bought a whole brick.
Wow! At first I thought I was smoking a Cuban Fonseca(I lived overseas for a spell). The prelight aroma was slightly metallic and earthy. The mini corona held its ash well, burned straight, and I worked it down to the nub. The flavor notes were slighty vegital, cedar, tobacco, earth and slight spice....almost nutmegish! I will be getting more of these from C.I. on my next order. A true hidden gem!
Have smoked 2 of these within a week of their arrival. Am letting the other 3 sit for a while in the humidor. Both cut, burned, and draw well-maybe too well. Construction was good. These small cigars are surprisingly strong and can become a hot smoke if pulled on too frequently. They let you know if you are. Nothing remarkable about the smell or flavor aside from the strength for a rather petite package. Don't let the small size fool you-these aren't for someone looking for an "easy" or mild smoke. Spicy, pepper, a very little bit of cedar were what I think I got from these. Interesting product.
Hey, these are tasty little cigars in a unique size. I fell for the marketing and the cool artwork, and ordered 2 5-packs. Don't get me wrong, these are tasty little smokes, but more "hat than horse" as they say. I liked them, but for me, are too expensive for what you get. Better off getting some of the toro or corona bundles that CI offers in plentiful quantities.
Man, I love these little cigars, and so do all my friends. They're cheap enough that I don't wince when someone hucks 2/3rd of a stick in the fire, but they're tasty enough that even folks who aren't into cigars will enjoy a few puffs. These pack a wallop, with a nice, earthy scent to them, kind of a coffee/leather/freshly baled hay, with super peppery overtones running the show. If you need a bang-around smoke, give these a shot!
Adroit
