So - So
Only sweet on the very tip so, if you cut the tip off most of the sweetness is gone. Plus it varied from cigar to cigar. So - so on taste. Didn't care for them.

Don't do it
The price is right the flavor is wrong. I got burned. Just spend a lil extra and get something you know is good unless you like the flavor of cardboard

Nicaraguan Sweets a misnomer!
Disappointing at best! Not at all sweet. Tight roll, poor draw on about 1/3 of the bundle. Harsh and a little bitter. Good price, but not for these "Dog rockets"! Avoid these and order another choice you'll be better off!

Nicaraguan sweets worth trying!
I like a mild sweet cigar. The Nicaraguan sweets are exactly what I was looking for. I will continue to purchase them. I have nothing negative to say about them!

Not sweet at all
Well for the first time in years I'm disappointed. These cigars offer very little to enjoy. They taste a little like dirt. There is not a hint of sweet on the cap. I know you get what pay for but the reviews were not quite accurate. Won't be buying these again.

Fantastic smokes at a great price!
These cigars are well rolled, burn evenly and with no hassles. Despite being "seconds" they perform like the best. A great smoke at a fantastic price. I couldn't be happier. A great way to fill the humidor for company this holiday season.

Not My Cup of Tea.
My opinion they're not a good tasting smoke. I had to put it out after 3-5 puffs. The taste wasn't appealing at all. I won't feel right giving these away.

Great price and fine cigars. Special occassion for the guys at work
I was pleased with the price and the quality of the Nicaraguan Sweets I ordered. The arrived very quickly and went into the humidor. They are extremely well made and the aroma is pleasant. When they are gone you can bet I'll be looking for more.

The Everyday Every Man Cigar
I am one of those that shops for the elusive daily smoke; these Nicaraguan Sweets 2nds are as close as I have come so far; nice smoke; good aroma; constructed well; even the ash holds up; they are not my premiums but for everyday or watching the Dallas Cowboys win you bet; these will be a regular in my humidor
4 out of 5
Good Smoke
These cigars are great as an everyday cigar. They do burn a little hot at times but over all a good cigar to top off a humidor.

These are good cigars! A long lasting, satisfying smoke but I couldn't taste the "sweetness". But, overall, they are still good cigars!

great stick for the price. Used at a wedding and all the guys enjoyed it and the flavor was good too. They'er just as good as the boxed cigars for half the price.

Still no sweet cap but nice mild smoke
One month after last review, initial 3 stars for lack of sweet cap and dry draw. One month in coolidor, wrapper changed shade, smokes nice, still no sweetened cap but decent smoke out put and flavor. take the time to smoke and it is beyond a yard gar and nice to relax to.

not quite mild
I bought these as a mild flavored daily smoke but found them rather harsh. I gave them 3 stars because they did smoke fairly good.

Good cigar for next to nothing
This is my second go-round with the Nicaraguan Sweets and it won't be my last. Both the Churchill and the El Presidente provided me with many wonderful smokes. They burned evenly and were flavorful through and through. I have been very pleased with these cigars!

Not smooth at all the title is very misleading. There is nothing sweet about these cigars!!

Get in on the Ground Flor!
Minus one star because some of the cigars are loose and some are completely unsweetened (but still good). You should be able to guess what these are. Nice mild/medium smoke when you're in the mood for something a little sweet (maybe).

No Sweet Cap on First Stick
Smoked one out of the box after a day in the Coolidor. Was still dry, no sweet cap, plain tobacco taste but it did burn well. I ordered the Churchill's and it burned for about 40 minutes. perhaps after a week or month it'll lively up. Not bad if you are in mindless conversation or just want a smoke.
5 out of 5
Mild and long lasting!
Bought them to try and was pleasantly surprised. Great price for a long, mild smoke.

Smoking, fast becoming "NON Cost Effective"!
Can't afford 'NAME' brands anymore....Nicaraguan 2nds is an affordable compromise. One more TAX hike and smoking cigars will become a memory.

Nothing sweet about it.
I thought I was getting a cigar that might be close to a Kuba Kuba, but I don't taste any sweetness in these cigars. They are mild enough to enjoy and my friends will enjoy them.

I would not recommend this cigar. Its construction was poor and the overall taste had hints of metal foil. There are much better options. I have it two stars because I love C.I.

A good cigar with a tip that has not been treated with sweet flavoring.

Surprisingly good
Low expectations as I was gambling on the unknown and going with a stronger cigar than usual. This cigar has a pokerface, strong flavor that is easy to smoke; I never tasted the "sweet" in it but it wasn't missed. Great purchase, especially at the huge discount.

Was a bit apprehensive about sweet cap, after smoking, sweet cap hardly noticed it. Great smoke at & ultra affordable...will order again.

WASTE OF MONEY
These cigars suck, the ones I got have no sweet tip and the draw is very hard. They are like smoking a pepper pod not to my taste will not waste money on this product again.

Perfect for me
Not sweets like the Louis Martinez,but still cool bur. Good construction and perfect everyday cigars to share with budies. Strongly recommended n will buy again.

Are These Nicaraguan Sweets???
Second time I've ordered these cigars but they were not the same cigars. Found the first batch of Nicaraguan Sweets to be excellent smokes. This batch not nearly as good. They had a different wrapper, no sweet cap, and were much harsher. Not worth the bother to return. Mistake at the warehouse?

Better than expected...
I ordered a couple samplers and a bundle of the Nicaraguan Sweets Robustos. Needless to say the delivery was very fast as usual with CI. Everything looked delicious so I decided to try one of the 2nds right out of the box. Made myself an adult beverage and out to the back deck for some relaxation. Looking at the cigar I could find no reason for it to be called a 2nd. Beautiful wrapper and wonderful tobacco smell. A quick punch of the cap and lit it up. The one and only complaint is that this cigar had absolutely no sweet cap. I am not going to take away a star because the cigar was great. It had a nice draw and a nice full amount of smoke. This thing burned dead even all the way to the nub. I would truly recommend this to anyone who likes a medium smoke but I would not promise a sweet cap taste.

Churchills- NG
These (Churchills) are not the same as the other sizes. They are packaged the same however they are Maduro's and have no sweet taste. Back to Presidente's which are very good and are as advertised. Don't recommend the Churchills at all.

Daily Go To Cigar
Worth it's weight in gold. This cigar is a true premium cigar, but cost pennies on the dollar. I've smoked roughly half of my 15 pack of toros and have zero negative things to say about this cigar. Full flavor with a hint of sweetness, the sweetened cap is a perfect addition to the flavors of this cigar. I guess if I had to choose one not so great thing to say, it would be that this cigar is not complex. What you start out with is what you get. But it holds those delicious flavors down to the nub. It's definitely worth a shot if you're hesitant about it.

Strong! Be prepared!
First, this was mislabeled as sweet, which it DEFINATELY IS NOT. Secondly, it is a VERY STRONG TOBACCO flavored cigar. However, that being said, after resting a week, I cut the churchill in half (I really wanted to try it and ran out of time!)and tried it and got one helluv a buz! This is a very potent maduro! The ash is bright white and fell after about two inches. Not a bad cigar for those times when you want a strong smoke! Just remember that it is a 2nd and expect some relights and blemishes. More time in the humidor might mellow it some and correct the touch ups.

Always a winning hand with a Baccarat!
This moderately priced, mild cigar never lets me down. While some other premium sticks start unraveling during the smoke or have to be re-lit several times, the Baccarat has a great taste for a mild cigar, delivering an even burn, with really good construction. Even though I like to smoke many different varieties and brands, the Baccarat is a winning bet!

Good everyday smoke
Not a bad deal, just a little bit stronger than I like but ok none the less.

Great cigar to share and trade and talk about.
These are great mild cigars. I had no issues, good burn and a long ash. The sweet taste last about as long as it takes to get the cigar wet while smoking it. I will reorder, hope I have as good luck with this batch as the last!!!!

Terrible
First shipment was very good. Spicy, peppery, with sweet cap. Based on that, I ordered more. Second shipment, entirely different cigar. Not spicy, not peppery, no sweet cap. Harsh smoking, somewhat bitter. I should return them.

I'm new to cigar smoking,
I'm new to cigar smoking, but am quickly learning what I like. I picked these up mainly for something cheap to take up room in my humidor. For the price these 2nds aren't half bad, good burn and draw. Only downside is they smoke real fast, about 45 minutes. Any sweet flavor these have is from the cap and some say it goes away quick, I've noticed the flavoring last a while for me but I think I would like these better without the flavoring or more of a sweet tobacco flavor. All in all not bad for the price or you want something that won't take all day to smoke

Very Good - Sweet
If you like a cigar with a good draw and a dipped / sweet taste, you can't beat these especially at this price. I feel the larger sizes are better for some reason.

Horrible Taste
I didn't like these at all. They have a taste like a wooden stick with a very nasty aftertaste. I couldn't even make it to the second 3rd before I just tossed it out. I now have several extra to give away so they're not taking up valuable space in my humidor.

What a Find!
So happy to find these belicosos even if they are 2nds. CI advertises the crap out of the 1sts of this brand, but the short torpedoes have been unavailable for a long time. And here they are. The Sumatran wrapped version is the sweetened tip one. Great medium bodied cigar - mildly sweet with gobs of flavor. If you don't know what these are, you're not paying attention!
4 out of 5
What a find !!
I have been searching for these cigars for many years. The short Torpedo has been unavailable in the firsts of this line for a long time. They are truly the holy Grail of sweetened tip cigars. They're not the world's greatest and they are seconds but they're very good. CI advertises and sells the crap out of the firsts, but the sword torpedoes have been missing. If you don't know what these are shame on you.

Something is different
I have ordered these a few times before, and they were great. This time, the order didn't taste as rich and looked lighter in color, didn't have a sweet taste, and they were a bit stale. I thought these were a go to but I don't think I will order them again if this is how they are being produced. I wish I could give a better review as I used to enjoy these.

They were ok
The first order was a lighter wrapper and they were ok... Nice taste and burn... The second order for whatever reason was a darker wrapper and were way to strong for my taste
Customer Testimonials
Solid construction with a very smooth and light draw. Mild to medium taste with slight vanilla infused on the cap. Good smoke at a great price; will buy again.
I think the thing that makes these cigars "seconds" is the lack of a sweet tip. I smoked a pack of Coronas & Robustos, no sweet I could detect. Ignoring that, these are pretty good cigars. Well constructed, good burn, nice flavor. Good smoke for a cheap price.
A pretty good cigar. Not very sweet though. Just a touch of sweetness on the cap, but it goes away quickly. A mild-medium smoke to me. A good price and I would buy them again.
I got these looking for a sweet cap. I didn't notice the sweetness. A good friend who rarely smokes anything infused or sweet noticed it right off the bat. Okay smokes for the price, good construction might want to see how they get after some time in the humidor.
Awesome cigar for the price! Will be buying more!
