Dark Shark

The Shark is back!

This top-selling handmade ain’t the prettiest girl at the prom but it may be the least worst option in this price range - especially if you like maduros. That’s ’cause this medium number really ain’t half bad. Crafted with a dark Broadleaf maduro wrapper and an all long-filler blend of Cuban-seed tobaccos, Dark Shark is indeed a lot more premium than it appears at a glance.

And that’s probably why I’ve had such a damn hard time keeping these things in stock. Expect rich, mellow maduro flavor for as low as $25 per mazo of 20. I’m done with the sales pitch....Dark Shark sells itself. Buy it or don’t - doesn’t matter to me - I’ve got a long list of guys waiting for their usual 5-10 mazos per month.

Dark Horse....no good.
For the price I thought I would try these out but all most all of the cigars are rolled really tight and very hard to draw. Even when used a poker, still hard to draw. Ruined a couple of cigars as well. You get what you pay for.

Just a great stick for the price. A nice late night smoke and it draws surprisingly well for such a low priced cigar.

Quite a catch!
Dark Shark has been my go to cigar for almost as long as they have been around. They are even burning with nice ash and have a consistent flavor and smoke that is hard to find for twice the price. This medium cigar will give you many hours of enjoyment and won't take a bite out of your wallet.

Dark Shark
Some sticks were rolled too tight making for a hard draw. With some Humidor time this issue was solved. Burn, flavor, and strength was as advertised. The draw issue is why I gave them a 4 star instead of a 5. My suggestion is when you receive them put them in the Humidor for 30 days before smoking. These are premium cigars in their price range, however they don't compare to long filler premium cigars IE: Mac, La Gloria, Partagas.

The best daily smoke!!
As a 2-3 a day cigar smoker I absolutely have to find something of decent quality I can smoke daily. Now don't get me wrong, given the choice is smoke San Cristobal all day if that was financially feasible. But it's not, and these aren't San Cristobal's which happen to be my favorite, but do you know what this is? Awesome, just awesome. These are fantastic I can't say enough good about them and the price!! I mean you really can't go wrong here! The dark shark Toro is a great smoke start to finish. Smooth at the beginning with some nice coffee notes to it. Down to some great shots of mocha flavor twords the middle. Sure, not all of them are perfect and may require minor maintenance during smoking. However that's a fair trade for the fact that the flavor is always consistent!! In the morning, grab you an espresso, light up one of these toro's and tell me if this smokes or tastes like a cigar under 3 bucks. Bottom line, it don't. Try it, you'll see.

Good smoke
I was pleasantly surprised by this cigar I've only had one bad stick out of the 4 5 I have smoked quite pleasing medium too bold Flavor isn't harsh does get a little hot towards the end but a lot of cigars do that but overall a good smoke for a great price I'll be buying more

Stupid good
Full flavored and smooth burning. I don't think you can get a better cigar at this price. Usually I don't like to factor price into my reviews, but because you can get some pretty foul sticks at this price, I feel it's important to mention. I've smoked better sticks, but I've paid 3x-5x for them. I've also smoked worse for more. The point is, if you're on a budget and you're trying to get the most out of your investment, don't be nervous picking these up. Only four stars because it lacks complexity. There isn't anything bad about what you smoke, but it also isn't anything outstanding.

Reviews finally got me convinced to try them. I was leery of these just because they were so cheap but I recently decided I would give them a shot and I wasn't disappointed. For a good smoke you won't feel bad if you don't have time to finish or you just ruin it because you're busy these are great. I also have a friend who never seems to have a smoke and likes maduros. These are going in the Herf-a-dor just for him. Not the greatest wrapper but more than worth the price.

I have been smoking these for a year and a half now. I cannot buy top dollar sticks very often so I spent time going through the cheaper side of things. These rank right up there with some of the high rated cigars I have smoked. I try and keep 60+ in the humi at all times. My daily smoke!

First time shark smoker
Not a big Maduro fan but thought I would try them because the dark shark name caught me. On my fifth one now and all 5 have been a good smoke. Nice even burn and good ash. Not real strong but not mild either. They ain’t a Macanudo but 10 times better then Palma Reals which might be worst cigar l ever smoked in my 50 years of cigar smoking. Would buy them again but wished they came in smaller ring size.

Cigar / $... New king
I have never had a cheap cigar hold up to my expectations until this. It is playing in the big leagues without the price tag! (yet). Bought a 20pk and getting more. This is the cigar/$ you've been looking for, and I doubt there is anything better. Just don't tell your friends what it cost you when handing them out
3 out of 5
Burned smoothly enough. But a heavy after taste
I liked the Cigar as a whole. But only liked it. I could taste the residue it was left behind after the first draw. Then after I finished it was a taste that never left.

An old friend that will never let you down.
The Shark is one of my favorite cheap-o's. I have an affinity for maduros. For a cheap everyday smoke, Dark Shark serves well. A medium body delight, with a pleasant aroma and leathery, nutty undertones. Seventy percent of the time it keeps an even burn. Now the Shark isn't anything mind blowing, but it is certainly a pleasant stick in it's price range.

Shark with NO bite
Ya get what you pay for. Inexpensive stick with NO flavor. Lots of smoke when it stays lit but NO flavor. Hoping the flavor would improve as it sits in the humidor...no luck. I would avoid this stick since their are other fish in the sea (ok, I know a shark isn't "technically" a fish but it worked with this analogy).

Why do I feel guilty?
I love these cigars! They're inexpensive but they burn well, taste great and last about an hour. What more can you ask for?

Not terrible - great yard work stick
While the Dark Shark Toro cigars lack a bold 'barnyard' smell, an oily, spicy to the lips & tongue wrapper or the greatest blend, it does have good draw and burns OK. The blend isn't rancid or harsh but, it seems a bit one dimensional. Nice aroma, however and it does have a bit of 'the' smell. Seems a bit more Med-Full than as described. After over 28 years of smoking cigars,for the most part, the ones I like best have the pre-light spice and that 'smell'. It can be done for cheap as well as expensive, but it's getting harder to find the inexpensive anymore. Hoping I can find something soon.

Great Price, Good Value
For the price, these are great cigars. Obviously, they're not going to stand up to cigars 10-20 times the price but for an every day or casual smoke, they hit the mark. I like having these around when trolling for salmon on Lake Michigan, doing work outside or even just relaxing on the deck. Also, they're great cigars to hand out to both seasoned smokers and complete novices. The construction is solid, they smoke well and hold up. As a value, they're easily 4 stars. As a cigar, they're probably closer to 3-stars. Good flavor but a little bitter aftertaste and the lingering smoke might be distasteful to some (especially non smokers). Worth a try for sure and I know I'll be ordering more.

Dark Shark Gordo cigars
Since I am a cigar smoker who prefers the dark leaf cigars, this was a very good cigar for the money. I will assure that I will purchase them again and again. Since I tend to draw on a cigar rather hard so the one draw back for me is they tend to burn a bit uneven. I have smoked them in a leisurely setting and the burn a little more even. They have a great taste and are very satisfying for me and again I will purchase more of them.

A VERY big surprise, this stick is WELL worth the money it is now my everyday smoke. It burns steady and evenly start to finish. It is not over powering, just a good cigar period.

Fantastic sticks
Picked up a bundle of these on sale for 20 bucks not expecting a whole lot more than an ok yard smoke. I was amazed at how good they were for being a "budget stick". Perfect construction, zero burn issues, and very flavorful from start to finish. These have become my go to cigar. As soon as they aren't backordered I will be getting a couple more bundles to keep on hand. These cigars could easily fetch 6-7 bucks a stick in a shop.

Robusta is correct
If a full everyday cigar is what you are looking for this is right up your alley. The cigar burns well and is full flavored.

A very impressive reasonably priced cigar. Out of my first 20, none had the slightest construction problem. Every one had a great draw, stays lit, tons of smoke, wrapped very professionally and stays wrapped, a slightly dark oily look, pleasant taste from start to end, mild but not too mild. I've tried 25-30 different brands, some cheap and some expensive, and these are my favorites.

Great cigar
For the price, this is one of the best tasting cigars I’ve ever had, I was skeptical seeing the dark wrapper as I don’t like a heavy taste. This cigar surprised me & I will buy again

Dark Shark=Good Smoke
For the price this is a really good cigar. Lots of smoke and a spicy taste. Burns evenly and smooth, never needs a touch up. I recommend you try them and don’t let the silly name put you off.

Had these a couple of weeks now. Not too bad. Probably more of a yard cigar than anything else.

The construction was and is absolutely terrible.
Every time I cut one of these cigars, the flag, and caps fall right off or unwind.... I tried sending a message to CI, but nothing. But still, it is a good smoke and a bargan. Maybe this was just a bad batch.

For the price you can’t go wrong. The caps come off early while smoking making it difficult to smoke.

Should have tried earlier
I have smoked cigars for 8years. I've seen Dark Shark in the CI catalogue for those years. I thought the name was silly, so I never ordered them--until recently. Now I wish I'd tried them 8 years ago! These are my new everyday smokes. They usually burn evenly and the taste is great! I just ordered 2 more of the Gordon's. Hope they come soon, because I am out. I have others, but I want the Shark!!

Nope...Not Yet, Anyway...
The good taste of this stick cannot make up for a host of construction problems. The cap came off in my mouth immediately each of the first five times I lit up. The cigar then began to de-laminate from the top down. I was able to use the band to keep it in place for most of the smoke, but it's a major distraction. And I won't really gig you for the uneven burn. Honestly didn't expect all of this from a good Nicaraguan. Fix the construction problems y'all, and you'll end up with the best value in the book...

I bought these along with Torano Noventas in my last order and much to my surprise I enjoyed the Dark Sharks more than the Toranos! A delicious and good smoking cigar for a good price! What more could I ask for?

Dark Shark Gordo
When I purchase a premium cigar, my focus is not as much about price as it is about value. I have found that some cigars with hefty price tags don't deliver on the value in the quality of the smoke and the overall experience. I have also discovered that some cigars with low price tags do deliver, and the Dark Shark Gordo delivers. It is by no means the best stick in my humidor collection but it carries a high per cost value and serves as a good common smoke stick for someone who smokes regularly. As long as the price remains in that same range, this will not be my last purchase of the Dark Shark Gordo.

A good smoke and a good value
The Dark Shark Gordo is a large ring, robust, maduro smoke. It is pretty well constructed with a nice slow burn. It’s not perfect, having some minor wrapper issues near the tip, but overall a good everyday smoke all around. Will order them again.
5 out of 5
I purchased them for the size and price. I was surprised at how good the quality of the cigar is at that price. nice even burn and stay's lit. It's robust but smooth. I only smoke one to two cigars a day, so I'm no cigar aficionado but these are great especially for the price. The Dark Shark Gordo will definitely become one of my regular cigars.

Buyer beware; this is not a good tasting cigar.
I had to return this variety. It was awful despite the positive ratings. I love maduro cigars on the cheap side of the spectrum. I love fumas and seconds so I wasn't expecting the taste of a high priced LFD, Perdomo, or MFC. My regulars are Brickhouse Fumas, Nica Libre, etc. In contrast, this cigar was awful.

Good Value for the Money
Nice colour, decent construction and draw and. Nice flavour. Milder than I expected. The burn is reasonable, needed some retouching, slightly uneven but no tunnelling . One odd thing is that the wrappers occasionally fizzle and pop like mini fireworks, even after two weeks in my humidifier.. Better than the much more expensive Rocky Patel Ligeros I recently bought. A good Yard cigar.

Nice sticks, but needs a little TLC
I've recently purchased 2 different sizes of Dark Shark. Really nice everyday stick. The Toro had a problem with their caps. They seemed weak and would break easily. To fix this, just cut the smallest amount necessary. The larger size didn't have this problem. I would definitely purchase again (and have).

Great Dark Shark bit my heart
3.5 stars of I could. These would be just about a everyday smoke for myself. Sharks have their own Maduro flavor which I like. Strength medium, medium full. Last fifth of Gar usually starts crappin out. Out of bundle 14 to 16 are excellent smokes. Burns bout right for the price. Ive had Toro size before as well same can be said, mayb Toros a little more tasty its been a while. Tip of cap unravels a tad generally after the first snip but usually a little saliva takes care of that. Havnt seen these anywhere else. Glad C I has them in stock just dont jack the price up C I.

Just the facts
I had been to my friend Jack Webb's daughter's wedding a few years ago and he had died, but at the reception they had his humidor there for us to enjoy a cigar. It was cool as he was there in a way. So, I decided on the Dark Shark and been a fan of it. It's a nice smooth economical cigar. We're not all made of money. So if you haven't given the Shark a try you won't be cut by it and that's a fact!

4 out of 5
I had reservations but...
Lots of times hype is hype. Bought a bundle of toros with a sceptical eye. Smoked a couple when they arrived. Dry and crackly. Should have known better. Couldn't punch the heads because the caps came loose. After a couple weeks in the humi they became a pleasant surprise. Had some cap trouble even after that, but bottom line....I'll buy them again. Pretty decent smoke for the cost, just be a little patient and they are what they say they are; good stick for the cost.

A swing in the Dark (Shark).
I was looking for an inexpensive smoke that was enjoyable and without trying one, I ordered a bundle of the churchills and hit a home run! I gave one to my neighbor to try and he bought himself some. Do not hesitate to try them for yourself. You won't be disappointed!

What A Surprise!
I have seen these El cheapos, with great reviews for a few months now, and finally decided to give them a go. Aside from the Original Cubans Rereleased, I don't think there is a better bang for your buck if you are looking for a good budget cigar. Solid taste, tons of smoke, perfect draw, and a nice slow burn. Is it high end? No. The first one I smoked had construction issues toward the bottom that became a little bit of an issue getting to the finish. But that's nothing that a little adjustment in the hand to hold it together didn't fix. That being said, I'm not sure I would buy the Gordos, as a bigger ring size might be worse. I always keep high ends in the humidor. But I also like to keep a bundle of budget cigars around for times when I have a bunch of friends over, or when I'm not sure I have the time to get all the way through a good smoke, but want to light up anyway. I think these will be my go to budget cigars going forward.

Very Suprised
The Dark Shark is a very good smoke with good flavor and definitely a lot smoother than I thought it would be. The entire batch that I received had top cap issues. When ever you snip the cap there would be unraveling issues no matter how high you snip above the shoulder so I would definitely recommend using a puncher.

My personal preference is for tasty vitolas between 5 and 6 inches with ring gauge between 50 and 58. The Dark Shark churchill 7 X 50 misses the mark. Inconsistent construction...too tight in spots and too loose in others...in the same stick. Other than that, good aroma, good taste and fantastic price point. T. Vista, Ca

This stick has taken over my rotation entirely. What a fantastic dark, leathery, oily smoke. I am astounded how excellent these cigars are - especially for the price!

A good, lower end, cigar that is fine for the yard. One or two out of a batch may not burn just right, but for the price, it's not a big deal. I've ordered them a few times and never had to toss one. You do get what you pay for, but in this case, you get just a little more.

Just OK...
These Cigars are not great, but just ok, or mediocre at best. When I received these, they were a little too dry, so needed some quick tlc with a couple raw stones. After about a week they were moist enough, however a lot of the end caps were weak, peeling away at about a quarter of the way through, and some various leaks through the wrappers. Otherwise, they are a good everyday smoke, if you are not looking for much flavor, and affordable at gordo & Churchill sizes.

Honest Cigar
The Sharks were an honest cigar. I am a newbie, and they are exponentially better than the convenient store cigars of the same price, that I had been smoking. That was without benefit of humidor time, as I had to wait until my proplylene glycol arrived. Two of the 20 had a motor oil scent/taste, two had an exquisite chocolate/leather taste, and the other 16 were just very pleasant smokes. I had construction issues with about 4 of them, again..humidor time would probably help in that regard. I will be ordering more soon.

Not just a giveaway.
bought these sticks for the novelty value. Our neighborhood has a swim team for the kids called the sharks. I thought they would be fun to had out at adult gatherings around a campfire or such, given the name. When they came, I lit one so I would at least know what I was handing out. Now, I'm ready to order my second bundle, and I haven't given a single one away. Perfect smoke for working in the yard, walking the dog, or a Tuesday evening with out the mild guilt of a more expensive blend. Great burn, wonderful complex flavor, and amazing price. Gotta love it.

I stopped by the Easton store 2 weeks ago and picked up two bundles, one for me and one to give to a friend. Was I surprised by these. I asked the clerk for some good medium strong cheapies and he said we sell a lot of these. I now know why. They are a great cigar for the price. The flavor is full bodied and lasts throughout. Hints of spice and wood. I will definitely buy them again when I get home to Florida.

Hidden Gem for sure
Solid smoke; I count myself as lucky to have found a solid go-to cigar for a price that doesn't destroy your wallet. It's a full bodied smoke, thick and hearty. And it has some punch, especially the last third. It's a good hour, 90 min. smoke easy. But it's a steal at this price. I'm a big CAO and Kristoff guy normally, so if that's you too, don't wait any longer.

I was a little skeptical at first, but looking for an everyday stick after stick smoke. I was pleasantly surprised when I lit these little beauties up. Absolutely amazing cigar for the price, smooth, even burn and a wonderful taste. I will keep a bundle, or two or three on hand at all times from now on.

Good Luck with these
while they taste pretty good, that is where it stops. about half way through, they begin to fall apart. wrappers split and quickly become un-smokable. what i found helps get thru these, is to push up the ring and add 2 more to the bottom, removing when needed. while they are a fairly tasty cigar, i cannot recommend buying these and i will not buy them again.
5 out of 5
Great smoke
The flavor is in the wrapper, and this one has flavor to spare. An excellent cigar, especially at the rock-bottom CI price. I smoked about 3 out of the first 20 and immediately ordered 40 more. Burns evenly, smooth draw, great lingering flavor, zero wrapper problems.

I gotta admit I was just a little skeptical reading the blurb on the site for Dark Shark. I hesitated several months, read, reread reviews and testimonials and decided to take the risk. been burned a couple of time with glowing reports from CI or the manufacture. First the consistency, 8 outta 10, maybe 20% had really hard spots. Secondly they are just what your description said: almost a premium at discount pricing. I'd rate this 4.75 stars. A very good medium bodied maduro. OldPoetMan

Definitely Wouldn't buy again
should've stuck with the Churchill dark sharks, these are brutal I wish there was a way I could i could swap. Never again I'll stick with my other regular dark sharks, will give these away ...so disappointing

Good smoke, great price
Great smoke for the price. This is now my humidors filler. I would have rated a 5 but had 2 split on me. 2 out of 20 for under $40. I'm not complaining about that one.

Not sure anymore
First order was a great cigar but second order they have thin wrapper that falls apart and ruptures during smoking. Not sure I would order them again.

Dark Shark Churchill
Dark Shark Churchill BDL OF 20. This is my 1st cigar I have ever bought on CI and just wanted to try something new. It has a leathery smell, pepper taste to them, and burn nicely. I found them really great. The only problem I have with them is that the wrapper comes apart at the end sometimes. Other then that, the price in my opinion is awesome. Highly recommend giving this one the shot! Will be buying this one monthly to share with my bothers and father. Thanks CI for your amazing service.

Get R Done
Great gar for the $$, burns even, nice white smoke and ash. Medium strong with earth and spice. I've only ordered the gordo's and not been disappointed yet. I recommend giving them a few months in your humidor before you partake.

Good
Full flavor. Great smoke. Only draw back is that the wrapper leaf may be a little fragile.

Worth it
For the price, well worth it. CI service great as always. I've had problems with others at this price point not staying lit but no problems here. Only drawback is that it's not as smooth as others for slightly more so I'll be getting those instead next time.

The best inexpensive cigar I have found
Dark Shark cigars are a great value and taste as good as many more expensive cigars.

Not a bad stogie considering the price.
Peppery, leathery and a hint of pear. Ok so I don't know what I am talking about. They burn evening with a smooth draw and the taste ain't all bad. They go well with a glass of whiskey.

Try This Stick!
Very toothy, good draw, medium strength which got a little spicy towards the end. Burn was perfect all the way through, only problem I had was the wrapper came apart on the last third. You just can't beat it for the price.

My second bundle
I smoke alot of cigars and cant afford higher priced brands. if it weren"t for the Silly band you wouldn"t now it it was so cheap. I've tried the robusto, and now the the toro. Great smoke for the money. Not a real fancy. all well constructed, good enough all the way to the nub. They have a solid femented flavor all the was thruogh and don"t get real hot at the end. i will get a bundle of these every time I order

Not Bad!
'Not bad' sums it up. Nothing overly flavorful, but an OK smoke. Three stars for the smoke and the whle the extra star for the price. A great choice for a knock around stick that you won't feel bad snuffing out if you run out of time to smoke the wholething. Need something to smoke while mowing the lawn or fishing? This is a good inexpensive option.
