Overall a very good mild cigar that burned well. However, I did have a few sticks that required me to use a poker due to the draw. Otherwise I would have given a 5 Star.

These cigars taste good but burn a little unevenly. They are not quite as good as a Macanudo, but in my book, the price makes them better.

My Favorite
For years a Macanudo smoker. Switched to these as my favorite for a coupe of years since. They aren't a Macanudo and that is fine for me, inasmuch as they are a little milder. Just right for my afternoon smoke. Those who complain about not liking them ought to know that CI has a great make good returns policy.

Just burned the first one out of the bundle for my evening dog walk. I have have many bundles of this stick I. Gordo size but thought I would try s smaller version and it’s just as good. Great value for a quality smoke when you only have about an hours time to burn a stick.

Really Can't give you an honest evaluation since I have not smoked them yet and probably won't for another 40 days or so. I have a large humidor and presently the CI knock offs are on the bottom shelf. But, I trust that those cigars will do well? If they are good, I will order them again, and if not good, well you know!

This mild cigar is a well constructed and great tasting smoke. For the price it’s a good cigar for the golf course or while you’re doing honey do-a. It holds a great ash and smokes down to the nub without losing it’s taste

Not what I expected but not bad for the money. They're supposed to be a Macanudo knockoff but don't favor them at all, as far as I'm concerned. All in all, well worth the money if you don't expect to taste the fine flavor of a Macanudo when you light up.

CI Macanudo Knock-OFFS

As advertised 100%
Listen these are getting a 5 Star not because they're the best cigar I've had. But because of what they are advertised, price and the quality. WELL WORTH IT. Great EVERYDAY smoke. Honestly my first was a tad loose BUT it had great draw, smoked evenly, and produced a lot of smoke. The taste was actually pretty decent! I highly recommend these for just wanting something to smoke and not dipping in your $9-$12 cigar stash. A must have if you have a decent sized humidor. I run mine at 66 degrees Fahrenheit and around 70-72% RH.....Hope this review helps.

Knockoff or original deal?
Bought these for my first time for a knockoff and I was pleasantly surprised. These were rolled well, burnt evenly and the taste was smooth and close to the original. I will order these again and try other knockoffs as well

CUSTOMER SERVICE AT ITS FINEST!!!!
Didn't care for these .they def don't compare to real Macs really un-smokable I couldn't even Puff whilst doing yard work maybe a bad batch don't know .The reviews are fantastic.There were only a handful that had my same experience so I think we are the exception NOT the norm The only reason these get 4 stars is because of CUSTOMER SERVICE. I filled out a review that CI sent me and noted these are a bad experience for me.Out of the blue I get a call from CI apologizing for the bad experience. They didn't refund the entire cost but they did offer me a discount on my next purchase. I must say that I am impressed with CI. Also I mentioned to the woman I spoke to that a free item was not in my last order and she stated it would be it my next order. GREAT COMPANY GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE. This is the first bad experience with a CI purchase and they stood up and in my eyes, made good. Thanks Jessica

Mild, subtle complexity.
A solid mild cigar, pretty much what you'd expect in a Macanudo copy. These burn very well, put out plenty of smoke, and the complexity of the flavor is very subtle. Probably in my top two choices of CI Knock-offs when I want something mellow.

I was a HUGE fan of the Casa De Garcia sticks. They were my foto everyday smoke. The last two batches were awful. This is my first bundle of these and they have a great flavor, mild through the entire stick. Wrapper stays together well, the cigar stays lit well, has a nice easy draw. A Macanudo it is not, but it is a really good cigar. If you take the price into account, it is an excellent cigar. Well done.

Try these. Trust me, it will not be a waste of time or money!
I don't know if CI reads these, but I really hope they do. I am a musician and have played guitar for many years. I own two very expensive Martin Guitars. Oh I didn't pay what the folks who I play with did, You see, I travel a lot and visit many pawn shops. The people who i play with have admired my guitars as well as those who i play for. My Martins cost me a small fraction of what the folks who I play with, payed for their guitars because I bought them in pawn shops. The folks at CI worked very hard to make a cigar taste like much more expensive cigars , such as this Macanudo knockoff and they got it right. I have smoked many cigars in my time including the Macanudo and I can tell you that this is a fine cigar and taste almost exactly like the Macanodu. If pride has prevented you from trying this fine stick, swallow it. You will be quite surprised.

Perfect for infusing with Auchentoshan single malt whisky
Bought these to try specifically since they are more mild and, of course, incredibly inexpensive. Tried one upon receipt and it was good. For the past 2 weeks I've had them sitting in a cedar lined cigar box with a dram of Auchentoshan Triple Wood and a hygrometer/thermometer... 71F & 75% humidity (hard to adjust down w/ the open dram of scotch) and they look, feel and smell incredible. Waiting for a guy's night out next week to smoke but from other people who have tried these knock offs, they're the perfect ones for a project like this.

Great everyday cigar
I've tried CI's macanudo knockoffs and monte Cristo knockoffs, and love them both. These are a favorite among the guys at work, too. Every once in a while you might have to re-stick the wrapper a little after you cut it, or once in a blue moon you might get one with a tough draw. But overall these macanudo knockoffs smoke very well and have a great, mild flavor far beyond their humble price. (My co-workers and I prefer keeping them a little "soft" in the humidor.)

Finally you are shipping the correct cigars, the Macanudo Knock Offs, length 7.0, ring size 50.
My last 2 orders were the Macanudo KO's with the proper length 7.0. They draw perfectly. The previous 5 orders were the supposedly the same but the length was 7.5. To make these draw properly you had to stick an ice pick down the middle!

Not near the real deal
Loosely packed cigar. Needs way more filler. You can squish it with your index finger and thumb down to 3/8 inch as you are smoking it. Nothing like a Macanudo.

Not what I was hoping for
Let me be clear - I very seldom get a chance to actually smoke a cigar. But I do spend a lot of time chewing on them. I love the taste of Connecticut wrappers and I thought that these might be a cheap way for me to indulge my habit. The problem with these is that the filler leaf used is very short and choppy. I spend all afternoon spitting out pieces of the filler. I am 100% sure that these sticks would be just fine if I were a normal person and just smoked the damn things, but that's not what I bought these for.

CI Knock offs are a great smoke
For a budget cigar and a nice smoke with friends, you can't beat these cigars for price and a quality smoke.

Also great
These cigars smoke great, very much like the KO -- compare Monte cigars.

You Gotta Love Those CI Knock-Offs
I've been smoking the Monte Cristo knock-offs on a regular basis. Recently I ordered the Macanudo Torpedo knock-offs. These are great smokes for the price. After a few weeks in the humi, they taste great, have an even burn, and he'll I go for them quite often. Too bad for the name brands, just keep supplying me with those generics!
