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.

What can you expect for the money?
They're OK for the money. Every once in a while, one runs, but what can you expect for the money? They provide me with pretty good stress relief. Thanks for keeping the price down.

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.
5 out of 5
Love these!
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.

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.

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...

A dark delight!
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.

Not my favorite by any means, but at that price, they are ok so far. Haven not had any dried out or cracked wrappers yet and that is a plus on lower priced smokes.

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).

Rocky Patel Strada wannabe. Nice firm construction, starts peppery and finishes in a bouquet of creamy cedar. Miss my Stradas? Yes, the wrapper is slightly better here. The filler is a push. Wish my Dad was here.

Dark Shark good Value
Recently ordered Dark Shark Churchills. pleasantly surprised for the good price I paid for this bundle. Very good value, and worth the money as a "Project Cigar" only issue I had was the caps come apart fairly quickly into the smoke.

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!

BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!
Good smoke at a great price!, not the best but far from the worst, would get these all day!

For the price, this is the best cigar you will find on this website. Decent mild taste. Not really any strong tastes that stand out. Just a good mild cigar. Great construction, great burn, and the toros will burn about an hour. This is my new go to
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.

Size isn't everything.
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! I find myself grabbing one of these before a $20 boutique stick on the merit of the flavor and quality alone. I enjoy these that much. Just don't buy them. Leave them for me.

Good Value Cigar
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.

Really? The perfect stick for cutting grass, grilling steak, detailing the car, watering the garden, and relaxing by the fire for this price? Just hush up and buy them.
3 out of 5
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.

Great buy, great taste
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.

A new day to day cigar!
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.

Chumming for Sharks
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

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.

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.

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.

Very mild with some artificial flavor
This cigar offers a taste of some artificial favor I suppose because the tobacco flavor is very weak. I found myself smoking more trying to get satisfied and it did not help. The draw is easy, the color looks good but not satisfying.

Great cigar for the price
I have been smoking cigars for about 20 years now. I am not loaded with $$ so to speak but have stepped up and bought some fairly pricey cigars before just to see what it's all about. In the end the Dark Shark wins for me for an every day cigar. On holidays and special occasions when I get out a 5 buck stick to be honest with you I don't think the price difference is worth it. The Shark is a winner for the working person who likes a good tasting medium madura that doesn't cost and arm and a leg.

I noticed that there were flavor notes that I couldn't quite put my finger on so I had a friend come over and try to help me identify them and he thought leather but I later discovered that the note I couldn't peg was actually white pepper. I think the mistake I made when I had the first one was that I expected Mauro but it's not, it's just really dark and robust.

Good Value
This is a good stick for the money. I have a pretty heavy draw and I'm a biter so the bigger ring gauge is appealing to me. My preferred stick is the Brickhouse Maduro but those are a bit pricey. This burns a bit quicker and is a bit less bold in flavor but I can get three good hours out of one cigar. It burns surprisingly evenly and rarely requires a relight. I highly recommend it.

A substantial smoke with enough body for my taste . I smoke two or three a day which can get pricey . They stand up well to a relight which i find myself doing my commute, they also burn relatively straight and are well filled and produce quite a volume of smoke. Think of like a poor man's Hoyo...they should just lose the ludicrous name

DS are a good cigars for a round of golf. They are inexpensive and can be passed around the foursome. Everyone seemed to enjoy them -- mild but they are flavorful. The band is a bit tacky but you don't smoke the band (I hope not??). If you are looking for a cheap stick for the links, this is the one.

dark shark gordo
The Churchill has been my only cigar to years now and I was never disappointed.A 60 gauge has always been my preferred ring size.Now, at last , the best of all worlds! The flavor of the gordo surpasses that of the churchill and makes for a totally different and very satisfying smoke.This is a long overdue, welcome addition to the dark shark line.

Dark Shark Smoker
I like the Dark Shark because of the way it taste and the way it burns. I've smoked more expensive brands, but I didn't like the taste nor the way it burned. Dark Shark burns pretty well all around with the tobacco burning down evenly. I've tried more expensive brands where the top burned down and the bottom didn't, what a mess. I also like the taste, it's not too harsh, but does have a taste I like. I'd recommend Dark Shark to anyone that likes Maduros.
5 out of 5
Cheap cigar with an expensive cigar taste
I reviewed my first Dark Shark in a sampler. Initially my thoughts were that the silly name meant low quality. The truth is that this cigar is surprisingly high quality. The construction is less than desirable. I purchased more of these because I can smoke them daily and be as satisfied as if I was smoking a good Romeo Y Julieta or Alec Bradley. Very nice stick.

A spicy and nutty smoke with the spice making its presence first with a nutty finish. Medium draw, not difficult at all but enough resistance. Draw seems much more dependent on humidity than other cigars Ive smoked. When they arrived I couldn't wait to try them but their humidity was VERY high from shipping and the draw was too tight to enjoy. Let them stabilize in my humidor for a week and they smoke like a dream. We definitely buy again!

Don't waste your money
I guess I could have gotten a bad batch. 3 out of 20 sticks had a decent draw....the rest were pretty much throwaways. Will not be buying these again. They are cheap but I still felt like I threw my money away.

Get rid of the shark save the stick!
Great buy for the money. Fortunately you don't smoke the label as it is the only detraction.

Decent Cigar , Decent Price
Dark Shark is a hefty and hearty smoke. A few in the bundle burned inconsistent , but more often than not it was an enjoyable smoke. It starts off strong and continues to the nub. I recommend this to anyone who likes Honduran cigars.

A nice "everyday" cigar
I don't smoke these when I want to sit down and enjoy a cigar, but they are great to occupy my time while I'm mowing the lawn or doing other chores.

Bargain cigar that just ain't bad
You know... I've been a bargain cigar buyer for a long time. Frankly there's only so many recipes for a cigar so it comes down for me if the cigar is rolled well and uses good tobacco. The issue with some bargain cigars is just that. You sometimes get a cheap cigar and it might as well have been rolled in a puddle on the side of the road with that tang that just hits the top of your mouth just right and you get a Daffy Duck look on your face. I've enjoyed 6 Dark Shark cigars and I must say that they were actually a pretty good cigar. No, it's not the greatest cigar but so far they have all been a good smoke. I've enjoyed them with a plethora of beverages from coffee, scotch, beer, and kool-aid (kool-aid is weird with any cigar). No complaints. I would recommend Dark Shark for a kick-around, bargain cigar that you can enjoy and not be a Daffy Duck face on a regular basis.

Dark Shark . . . this Shark Definately Doesn't Bite . . .
This is my everyday cigar . . . it's hard to believe that these used to be on "the Unsmokables" list. the price still isn't bad for these cigars . . . and they are not a mild smoke by any stretch . . . all i know is i like them and always order two bundles at a time. these are worth a try . . .

Good cigar at a great price!
Good cigar for an every day smoke, easy draw, good smoke and flavor. Others have complained about bitter cigars but after 100+ Dark Sharks I have not had a bad one yet.

Dark Shark Churchill
In the glory days I could afford the best smokes but retirement and other things bring humbler times. These are acceptable everyday cigars that serve the purpose OK. Quality is subjective and these are not my beloved Fuentes… but, sigh, they’ll do.

Great bang for a less than a couple of bucks each.
I love a good madura churchill cigar. A few motnhs ago while trying to find a bang for my buck so to speak I ran across the Dark Shark. This is truly a great cigar. I have been buying them since as my every day and sharing with buddies smoke. Can't beat them for 1.50 each. I'm hooked.

Good purchase
I like to write reviews after trying a few. This cigar is very relaxing and enjoyable to smoke. Stays lit very well, I liked the price I paid, and as a young college student on a budget price is everything. Cost to taste ratio, great. Especially for something of this size. Smooth taste, I even enjoyed it over some of the Man O' Wars I have smoked (And AJ Fernandez is a MASTERMIND!)

Good
Dark shark is a good, basic cigar. Well made, few problems with them, smooth full flavor; but nothing extremely special. A great every day cigar.

Great cigar for the buck!
I usually Smoke Monte's or Oliva V series cigars. While chatting with my bartender and friend Sean he recommended this cigar. I was very reluctant to smoke a sub $2 stick but as soon as I brought my first shark to my lips I was PLEASANTLY SURPRISED! The draw is extremely fluid and that taste is very nice. The structure is amazing for the price and the ash holds for at least an inch. For those blow hates that say this cigar is un-smokable I say BS. This is not a $10 cigar but it does smoke like a good $5 cigar. For daily or multiple cigar days I highly recommend the Dark Shark. Very good cigar that won't take a bite out of your wallet "pun intended"
