An airball of the highest order.
Gerant, like Rip Van Winkle, should have stayed asleep much longer, for smoking this offering will make you wish you were unconscious. Frankly, in comparison with other legendary sleepyheads Gerant is downright Olympian. Indeed, he must have been taking a Golden Siesta at the blending table because these 7"x50 Churchills are so mellow and straightforward as to lack any hint of flare. If airballs that are so calm and mellow as to be void of any complexity are what you're looking for - or you want to glom something off that looks good to your moocher buddies...then these Connecticut-wrapped cigars will fit the bill. If you are looking for actual taste, try something else.
Touted as a "mild" cigar and that they indeed are. At a buck a piece it is a decent stick to give to a non-cigar smoker so they have something to smoke while you smoke something stronger and probably a bit more expensive--they will never know! But really, for a dollar a piece these are nice to have around and with a really even burn, they will keep most mild smokers content.
Nice mild cigar. Burns evenly. Great for the person that smokes a couple per day. Can't beat the price. CI is too hard on this cigar in their description.
After reading the reviews from others, I am embarrassed to write that I liked this cigar. Mild smoke, pleasant taste, nice ash, no bite. Cant beat the price....
Ok I bought 5 bundles of some thrifty cigars at CI to try out. I put them all in my Humidor for a cpl months. When i tried this Cigar For $1 a stick I wasn't expecting a lot.
But WOW theses are a real nice mild pleasant smoke good even burn very nice construction. I have enjoyed several so far. I think I am going to order another bundle.
I threw a bundle of these in my last order to share with my novice smoking friends . After a couple months rest I smoked one today. Very nice construction, even burn, good ash, very mild pleasant smoke. Great smoke for a $1 stick.
AWESOME CIGAR FOR THE BUCK
Sounds like a good humidor mate for "Raji's Untimely Demise".
Might have to pair this with a good bourbon...you know, something in a plastic gallon jug.
Well, I agree that these are not the greatest stick I've ever smoked, but I'm on a limited income now and these are a pretty even and consistent burn with some flavor and are indeed mild. I re-ordered them twice.
PART II- I have let them sit for a while and they still have no taste. Great "looking" cigar with a good burn and draw on my 2nd stick. One positive note is their is no bad, rancid after taste which I have experienced in a many cigars 10 times the price of a "Sietsa". Save these for when you have cold and can't taste anything anyway.
As the description said, mild to the point of almost tasteless. Good construction, cigar stayed firm even behind the cherry. The band stuck to the wrapper when I tried to remove it and created a leak. But the burn was even and the draw fine once I got beyond the hole I had made.
If you are smoking 5$ Helix or 2$ Quorum, then you night want to try these 1$ churchhills.
These are actually SMOKEABLE. If you are short on cash, and need tobacco, these are OK. Great construction, but rolled too tight. I clipped an inch or two off the end of a few and they finished OK. Worth a try if your in need of a cheep smoke.
