I usually get really good backwoods but the last two times I've ordered they have been dry and cracked none of them would work

Tired of Continued Poor Quality of Backwoods
Another former Backwoods smoker who got tired of increasingly poor quality of the product and having mine and thousands of customer complaints being ignored by the company. After several years of trying other brands, I find 1882 is a great alternative.

Wish I found the 1882's sooner. Much better smokes then the Backwoods. The wraps on the Backwoods have been terrible lately. With holes and tears affecting the draw. Hopefully Garcia Vega will keep up the quality. They just don't to put a band on each cigar

It's always easy to deal
It's always easy to deal with CI. And the cigars arrive pretty quickly.

Better than the other brand
1882's are MUCH better quality and half the local price of the other brand. Taste is equal to or better. Definitely a value packed cigar.

Honey Berry - Just OK
I think the Bourban flavor is much better and I will be ordering more of those. Backwoods Honey Berry is better and worth the price difference if really like Honey Berry.

20 Minute Slightly Sweet Break
I smoke while my rice is cooking (50 minutes) for dinner. I need to start or flip the meat I am cooking on the stove after about 20 minutes. Perfect way to end the day. Not too sweet or harsh. I have tried all the other cigarillos and this is the best.
Customer Testimonials
Love 'em; my new Backwoods replacement!
Freaking great taste and aroma! So much so I bought 4 boxes. Great everyday running around little cigar. WOW!
If you're a long time Backwoods smoker....then do as I have and try these! Much better quality and similar flavor!
I too am a long time Backwoods smoker, I prefer the "Honey Berry" flavor. I do agree with the consistency of the 1882 cigars being rolled perfectly, as well as the mildness. The only drawback is the flavor is no where near the backwoods. I would recommend these cigars to anyone whom likes the taste of a mild cigar and not being overpowered in the sweetness of flavor. Great cigars at a great price!
I have been a backwoods guy for 10 years or so, they go thru good and bad production runs. I average 20-30% bad cigars per pack but I package them up and send to address on package and they replace free of charge except shipping. Then CI sent me some 1882 samples, I just ordered 3 boxes. They are perfect mild cigars with no imperfections yet on the single cigars. So was backwoods though. We will see.
Years (decades?) long Backwoods smoker. Finally fed up by all the holes and bad construction. Tried dozens of alternatives. Then I found the 1882s. Almost identical to Backwoods. The taste is slightly different, but still very mild. Not harsh at all, like some of the other Backwoods imitators. Best news - no holes, no breakage, no cigars wrapped so tight they won't draw. Very well made. Recommended
