Customer Reviews of “CI Fresh-Rolled Cuban Wheels”
Just bought some of these (torpedos) and have smoked two so far. The first half of the cigar is fine. I don't know what they put in the last third or so, but it's just awful. The last three inches seems to be .... ridiculously harsh and pretty much unsmokable. Maybe time will mellow them... I don't know. I haven't had much luck with "aging" turning a cheap ....cigar into a cheap good cigar....
Just tried these and found them to be very good for the price. They were fresh and and well packed. A good every day smoker.

Very happy! Just received product. Never try this brand before. Received shipment in four days. Smoke one stick and WOW!!! I am one happy camper. this is a real winner. MB.

Bought a roll of these. I have smoked maybe 5 so far. No burn issues or draw issues. They smoked fine. Mild on the taste side. For $1 a stick I think they are my new giveaways. And I don't mind smoking them myself. Will buy again when I get low.
Just got these off the truck. Wow what a great smoke for the money. Great burn&nice ash! Thanks CI for my new everyday smoke .
These are a slight cut above the Flor del Todos I was smoking as an everyday cigar. I bought them before they went up to $59 (they were $49 with a free lighter). If the price stayed at $49, I would definitely make the switch - but at $59 I'm not so sure.. (I'm CHEAP!)
Got burnt on this one too. I'm eating more tobacco than smoking. Can't go for the deal because I'm getting what I pay for, a cheap cigar.
This is a wonderful smoke. Mild in flavor. Nice burn from beginning to end. Will definitely order these again. Thanks CI!

Super awesome. I will definitely purchase these again.
The cigars are very mild. The wrapper has a nice flavor. I am not sure I would purchase these again because they are so mild.

What a great deal, I don't know if these are hand rolled, machine rolled or what but when I received the wheel today and couldn't wait to try them out. I prefer a darker stronger cigar. Maduro torpedoes are my usual, but I couldn't pass these Churchills up at a little more than $1.25 a stick. It started out with a hard draw but loosed after a few puffs. The first half was very mild with almost no smoke but the flavors started coming in the last half. Creamy, leathery with almost no spiciness to it. I was a bit sad when it got to the nub after an hour of pure enjoyment. I would tell all my cigar buddies but don't want to give away the secret.

Starts fairly good but turns bitter about 2/3 of the way. Have to try a recut or blowing through it.
Just finished my first wheel, and good riddens! I'm not sorry to say these were very disappointing, even at a buck a stick. Most tasted moldy and burnt like wet grass, even after a week in a dry humidor. I thought my humidor was going bad but the Ghurka's next to them were in great shape, and taste. Maybe the conneticut wrapper, but fell off just after lighting.
If you buy these be prepared to put them away for a good long while. Off the truck they're soft-downright 'squishy'--and very moist with a difficult draw. I just had one after a couple of months in the humidor and it gives you an idea of its potential. The flavor isn't remarkable even after the time in the humidor, somewhat mild. The ash is fine and holds well for about a half to three quarters of an inch.
“I just got the box of all my best and the fresh rolled CI's. I grabbed one and headed out back. For the price I didn't expect much. Wow It's a good cigar. I am surprised. Thank You CI for making my smoking less expensive. You guys rock my world. Bob”

Have smoked 6 of these now. Not bad! A bit on the mild side and the stick seems a little light smokes kinda airy. Tends to want to burn unevenly. Nice construction but has a odd aftertaste I can't quite put my finger on, but smokeable while waiting on the Flor Del Todo's to come in, that I prefer over these. For a $1.25 they're smokeable. I'd buy them again so I would have something to hand out to moochers. LOL!

This is a fine replacement for the Piloto Cubano, which I can no longer get from this site. They are almost the exact same cigar. For those of you who use the guillotine cutter for these cigars... STOP! They smoke best with a punch! They are mild and I like that!
Nice sturdy smoke, good burn and flavorful! Never gotten a bad cigar yet from CI!

I bought these on Black Friday because they were cheap; really regret it now. Wrapping falls apart, the packing is so loose you burn a hole straight through making a cigar straw, and won't stay lit. Sorry CI, but these are very bad.

Whoever applied the wrapper really needs more training. On about half the cigars the wrapper fell off just after clipping and firing up. I mean it just unrolled and fell off. The binder stayed intact, so the cigars were still smokeable, if a bit ragged. Still not a disaster, the flavor was pretty good. I might even try again when these two wheels are gone. Maybe I'll get some pectin and re-glue the wrapper back on. Smoking these was an adventure.

Love these! I prefer them over the 5 Vegas Gold I recently smoked! Great price, good construction and lots of smoke! Excellent! I just wish they had larger ring sizes.

Love these! Just smoked a 5 Vegas Gold, but prefer these over the 5 Vegas! Excellent!

I don't know what caused the some of the bad reviews on these cigars. I do know fresh rolled need some sort of aging at least one or two months. I had one of the torpedoes I bought which has been aging about a month and out of cellophane wrapper. It was as tasty as an H.Upmann Napa Reserve which is no longer rolled. I smoked this CI Fresh Rolled down to the nub almost too small to hold without burning your fingers and was wanting more. Real good cigar. Would not be ashamed to offer to my buds. However, now that I think about it, I might be selfish and keep all of them for myself.

Great cigar. Don't know what some other folks are doing to make these cigars taste bad. You do need to age them first. Taking them out of cellophane wrapper speeds the process. The cigar reminds me of H.Upmann Napa Reserve which is not rolled anymore. Recommend this cigar to anyone.
DF of Bonne Terre, MO
These are probably some of the worst cigars that I have ever smoked. They do not stay lit, they do not draw, burn un evenly, just all around bad.....Take the money that you would spend on these and buy better cigars
Had one after about 2 days in the humi. The draw was ridiculously loose. I don't know if they were too dried up before I put them in there or what. Taste was nice and creamy though almost pancakey? @ 1.50 a pop will def buy again.
