Mark Twain Memoir

I’ve made it a rule to never enjoy more than one cigar at a time.


Mark Twain was a prolific novelist, satirist, cigar enthusiast, and the originator of the ‘that’s what she said’ joke. While that last part may require some additional verification, Twain’s love of tobacco, and his particular devotion to the cheapest cigars money could buy, is an established legend. Mark Twain Memoir is the newest addition to the line, and ratchets up the intensity and flavor while still staying true to its core.

Mark Twain Memoir jumps off the page with a dark Pennsylvania Broadleaf maduro wrapper blanketing a hearty blend of rich Nicaraguan premium long-fillers. Medium to full-bodied, expect to be met with a dose of pepper and spice from the get-go, with notes of cream, cedar, hay, and coffee settling in to round out the blend. Pick up this big-ring premium handmade at a price that even Mark Twain himself would approve of.

The Best!
These are definitely some of the best cigars that I have ever purchased. Smooth, even burning and easy to relax and enjoy.

Medium body one tone flavor, but the price is right
An ok cigar. The burn is not great. This cigar responds better to lower humidity because if not it will got out often. The flavor is still decent and its not a bad stick. If you are looking for a long smoke with decent flavor at a good price this could be for you.

Nice smoke for the price and quality
nice construction toothy brown wrapper burns nice smells nice tastes good. medium and spicy with that Nicaraguan taste i was impressed and surprised for what i paid for it. long smoke so be ready to smoke a bit. worth the few dollars. best smoke for the brand and price by far.

I guess for the money it’s a fair cigar, but don’t think I’ll buy anymore, can be bitter, harsh and inconsistent.

Great cigar!
Got 5 of them in a sampler and I was VERY pleasantly surprised! Easy draw, starts spicy and mellows out a few puffs in. Somewhat of an uneven burn at times but holds a beautiful white ash throughout. 2 hour stick for me and I loved every minute of it. Great cigar a great price!

Not impressed...
Hardly any taste. Leaves bad after taste of ash. Had to quit half way and use mouth wash to cleanse my pallet. Would not recommend. Now I have 19 left and would honestly rather toss them.. got drawn in by the artistic band. Win some lose some.

hearty and tasty
This is a nice heavy cigar. construction is visually nice but they have all required frequent touch ups to keep burning straight. flavor is great with very malty earthy thickness with a medium body smoothness. I am a relatively fast smoker, yet they last a full 2 hours at which point there is 2 inches left but i need to get on with other things. definitely recommend. also the band is fantastic with nice embossing and graphics

Get good one, and you got a really good one ... but
Generally, Mark Twain Memoir No. 1, a good long-lasting smoke. If you smoke while driving, one stick will get you from Buffalo to Cleveland. Nice mild profile. As one might expect, there is some inconsistency in construction, draw, and blend (for a mixed-filler cigar) ... but overall, well worth having a 10-pack in the humi. On the other end of the spectrum, there's occasionally one or two (out of ten) way better then the rest. Go figure, eh?

Love it...
I had been want to try these for a long time. There was a deal I couldn’t pass up and I took a shot and bought 2 deals...wonderful cigar for just sitting on the back porch with a nice Bock it Porter and listening to the birds. I don’t really know the lingo but for me it bites nice on the first drag, settles in for a crisp but mellow long burn and finishes with a gentllemenly been nice talking I see you next time kinda thing...y’all know what I mean? Good stuff here...

Good price for a decent Churchill cigar
Full of tobacco and flavor. Fairly slow burning. Molasses and curry. Compared to similar Bahia Maduro Churchill this has a bit more flavor and a better cap construction.

Good flavor but uneven burn
These are a good cigar for the price with good flavor and a nice look. They keep burning even if you set it down for a while. I'm about halfway thru the bundle, and several of the ones I've smoked so far have burned unevenly, faster on one side than the other. I've had to trim off the longer side and relight to get it to burn straight across. Also some were very easy on the draw, but the last one I had got very hard to draw about two/thirds gone. Overall, a good smoke for the price. The things I mentioned aren't a biggie to me and I'd buy them again for sure.

Smooth and flavorful. Well put together.

I must explain......
The beautiful cigar, has an excellent construction. Draw is medium wrapper is text book. All around this is an excellent smoke especially for the price and here is my “explain”. There are 3 levels of cigars in my book, economy-premium-and vintage, all progressively complex and expensive. Science this forum doesn’t distinguish between them I gave it a “2stars”. After all it’s against some mint cigars. If it was rated as an economy cigar? 5 stars all day long. Great smoke for an 18!

Fitting Cigar
I've ordered these a few times now and have had pretty good luck. I really like the flavor and it is a great cigar for 18 holes of golf. Occasionally, I'll get one that has some burn issues or the wrapper starts to separate after I remove the label, but overall it's a very good, affordable stick. I think Mark Twain would approve.

A nice stogie
It really is a nice cigar, not great, but for under $3 it is the best value out there. Lots of smoke, not harsh unless smoked too hot and a good cigar taste. Solid construction, occasional draw issue but I can deal with minor issue.

Mark Twain Memoir No. 3s
A friend of mine had given me a Memoir 2 and I loved it! He told me about a Memoir 3 he had that was way over the top for him. Almost too much cigar to smoke in a sitting. I immediately wanted it. Ordered a box. They do not disappoint and I am not of the same opinion as my friend. I love this cigar. Long lasting smooth and a big strong smoke. Flavorful and just satisfying!!

Love this cigar.
I was gifted one of these cigars and enjoyed it so much I ordered a box that very day as I smoked it. Tasty and smooth, Great draw and plenty of smoke. I have gifted a few of them myself and have heard back that they really liked this cigar. I will let half of them age for a bit and enjoy them very much.

Surprisingly good smoke for the $
I've been searching for an inexpensive, everyday cigar, and after having several cigars from this box, I think that the Mark Twain Memoir will be definitely be on the short list! It has a smoothness and richness I expect from a Maduro, but it was much more refined and complex than I expected. In summary, if you're looking for a good, inexpensive everyday stick, I strongly suggest you give this one a try.

Mediocre in flavor. Construction was by comparison pretty good; no wrapper problems. Stayed lit but halfway through I was tired of the taste and this continued cigar after cigar. I still have half-a-box left; don't know who will want to take a chance.

Number 2 Gets 2 Stars
My first Mark Twain cigar needed to be worked to get a decent draw. It was wrapped too tight and the tobacco itself, though of good quality and taste, is high in resins as if the leaves were pre- soaked in molasses. Once you have a good draw the smoke is quite enjoyable but at the midway point I had to use a tool a number of times to clear the draw and relight it. The cigar will not hold a light. I am now halfway through the box and have not had one cigar that did not need work to be able to light it and smoke it properly. All the cigars so far seem to have trouble holding a light toward the end. So there are things as far as the smoke I like, but this particular cigar takes too much work to enjoy it properly. I won’t be ordering another box, and would not give them as a gift to a smoking friend.

Twain spins a good yarn
Fairly simple and straightforward flavors throughout. Nice even burning stick with a smooth draw. Sits nicely on the palette. Enjoy this one with a nice bourbon or whiskey and you can’t go wrong!

Worthy of the name
This cigar has definitely earned its namesake. Being named after a man who is known to march to the beat of his own drum, not caring what others thought, and being rather simplistic, but bold. This cigar embodies that in spades! It is not going to win numerous awards, or load your palette with false flavors and nuances that have become today cigars. What this cigar represents is pure simplicity. Creamy earthy notes followed by pepper flavors towards the end, outstanding draw, large volumes of smoke and good solid ash. Smoking these reminds me of the flavors I enjoyed when first becoming a cigar enthusiast. I'm sure Mr Clemens would agree, that taking a step back and enjoying a simple thing is much better than overpaying for the next latest and greatest gimmick to come out on the market. My only regret is that I did not buy more than one box when these were on sale! Truly a great cigar representing flavors from an earlier time. Do not hesitate, buy these as fast as you can! As with all things once the secret is out, the price will go up.

Update of 11/3 panning.
Update of Nov. 3 bad review. First one had serious construction, hence taste, issues. Next two drew and smoked well and displayed a pleasant mild to medium taste. 4 and 5 had some draw issues which were corrected with a corkscrew and a big of draw pokering. I could have smoked them with tight draw, I guess, but they taste better with more smoke. Having had a good example of the cigar, I raise my rating to 3 stars.

Update on Memoir review of early November
An update on a negative review I wrote early in November. I have now smoked all five Memoirs that I had. The first one was not good, as you know if you read the review. Two of the remaining five required some "opening up" (as in 'draw poker') as the draw was reluctant, after which they were acceptable companions. The other two drew and smoked well and had a pleasant mild to medium flavor. I often read reviews of people who intensely dislike a cigar everyone else seems to enjoy, and construction is usually a main problem. This tells me that rollers have good days and bad, and that you will always get the occasional bad cigar, or rarely, bad box of cigars. On the other hand, sometime you get one that is head and shoulders above the rest. Those days, a two dollars smoke tastes like cigar of the year.

Maybe I just got the clinker.
I received these in the "Honest Pour" sampler. I have only smoked one. I can honestly say this was one of the five worst cigars I have ever smoked in my life. This was a totally tasteless cigar. The draw was one step away from plugged. The construction was awful, as it burned up and down the side and needed constant evening and relighting. All this came as a great surprise as I have smoked the the natural Mark Twain and found it to be a consistently decent, good smoking cigar. Even the 8" variety. I also notice the Memoir regularly brings a better price on C-Bid. than the regular Mark Twain issue. I weighed these cigars out and found a considerable variance in weight between cigars. I am hoping for better things from the rest of them as I have to get through nine more. I hope you have a better experience than I did.

Memoir cigars are one of the best cigars for the money.
I was introduced to the Mark Twain Memoir cigars when I purchased some through CI awhile ago. I was very happy with the Cigar immediately. Great flavor and a great burn. I smoke these cigar very often. Get them a try, you won’t be disappointed.

The cigars were shipped on the dry side. A few days in a humidor helped the smoke. Nice looking cigar, starts out smoother than expected and picks up more flavor about a fourth of the way down. Draws good with an even burn. Great relaxing smoke.

Highly disappointed
I wish I could chime in with a good review of this cigar because I picked up the original Mark Twain and loved them. They were the best mild bodied cigars I've had, so I was expecting this to be heads and tails above the former. Unfortunately, I have to honestly say that these are the worst smoke I've had since I started smoking cigars. Right away, I felt some extremely tight spots up and down the cigar that I tried to roll out and loosen up, but to no avail. I had no luck in getting any more than a small puff of smoke on each draw, and it wasn't for lack of effort; and the effort I had to put into this ended with a small portion being "snoked" before I had to pitch them. So far, I've attempted to smoke 5 of these (out of 10), and I had 1 that was halfway decent. Overall, I'm just really disappointed because I wanted to enjoy these as I listened to a Mark Twain audiobook and apparently ended up with a bad pack. I would still recommend the original Mark Twain's, but it would be a gamble, in my estimation, to risk purchasing these when you can count on any other number of other cigars for your enjoyment

Decent, but just average maduro
Not terrible, but the original Twain is one of my all-time fave cigars amongst Connecticuts, and these just don't stick out amongst maduros the way the originals do amongst Connecticuts (in fact, I'd argue that the originals have more flavor than these, imo). I've now gone through the 20 I got on a flash sale. Two I smoked last summer right off the truck, the rest I let age until this spring. No major construction issues (some light canoeing here and there, but not usually), but even after aging these don't stack up to other maduros in the price range. Glad to have tried them, but wouldn't buy again. There are too many other maduros that I prefer for the same or similar price.

Worst cigar I have ever ordered from CI.
I really wanted to like this cigar. It looks good, the packaging is great, and it is a fun size. Problem is that it doesn't smoke well. Tough draw, wrapper cracks and unravels, and canoes badly. I have ordered a variety of cigars from CI ranking from great to good. This one is the worst I have ordered. I would not recommend it to anyone!

The band ruins the stick.
Good blend, well constructed, even burning stick is spoiled by the band being glued to the wrapper. $ boxes I bought recently all had that problem, and if it was a small, narrow band, it wouldn't matter, but the MT band blocks the entire last third of the cigar. Removing the band causes the rest of the wrapper to shed like a snakeskin.

I purchased 10 of the Mark Twain Memoirs on a CI Cigar FU sale recently. They have a pleasant aroma and flavor, but I noticed the draw was tight for some reason. They subsequently had a lack of billowing smoke which I really enjoy in my cigars. I had to really work on each puff to get much out of them. I thought that it was a humidor issue, but I let them sit for a couple months and still smoke output was disappointing along with the tight draw. I will not be buying any more of these.

MARK TWAIN MEMOIR NO 2.
Had it b-4. liked it and tried it again. very good draw, burns good. A very good almost 2 hour cigar.
5 out of 5
A great deal for a great cigar!
A most excellent cigar for the special price offered. A very rich and smooth draw that's intoxicating both in aroma and flavor. The texture is leathery and a bit peppery towards the end which makes for a great "stogy" to chew on. I can make a single cigar last all day by smoking it for a minute then letting it go out only to light it again later till finally I end up with a 3" stogey as a pacifier. Lol!!

Pretty good cigar..Memoir#1
after 3 of the first 4 were duds and would not draw, I was preparing for disappointment. After that, the rest of them burned well and gave an hour of good smoking. A couple of loose rolls but decent construction overall. Would buy again, maybe, but CI offers a lot of $3 cigars that might be better.

Great Cigar
I enjoy the Memoirs and they are a decent cigar. I think I could do 5 stars just for the taste and the value. The 4 star is because they don’t burn right on occasion. You sometimes have to work pretty hard to keep one going. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not often. The cigar has a great taste and a bit more body than the normal Mark Twains.

Good value for an everyday smoke!
Really enjoyed the taste. Great way to spend more than an hour. Pretty consistently, had to touch it up a few times. Overall, great value smoke. CI allow great service!

Good everyday smoke.
The Mark Twain Memoir 1 is a solid everyday smoke. Solid construction, keeps a nice long ash, lots of smoke and a nice med-full flavor. I get at least an hour and a quarter of satisfaction from this reasonably priced cigar.

Unexpected surprise.
I received these with a sampler pack and they ended up being my favorite of the bunch. Easy pull and great flavor. They are now part of my monthly order.

My new Favorite
If you like a "meaty" cigar for a seriously good price - this is it. While this may not be everyone's cup of tea, the serious leather/earthy/coffee flavor is there at first light. Cons: well some of mine have had a bit of a problem toward the end. Maybe one in 10 either had huge uneven burns or the outer wrapper broke. Suggestions on this would be to have them WELL cured in the humidor and not leave the suckers in the car for 2 days (face palm).
5 out of 5
Fantastic!!!
these sticks burn great! Nice and even draw with a consistent burn, leaving a nice white ash --- doesn't need re-lit every few minutes either! Nice smooth taste thats not overpowering for a maduro!! i'll be buying these often in the future!!

This cigar has a good even burn with a solid ash and Well constructed. The wrapper does not have great taste but a good buy for the price point.

5 out of 5
Mark Twain Memoir it is
These are nice smokes. Since I enjoy sometimes up to four cigars a day, these will keep me from visiting my loan officer and at the same provide me with a pleasant experience. Nice flavor, subtle coffee, I frequently pair this with my morning espresso.

Bang For Your Buck!
Very good cigar to the last puff! It's been a mainstay in my humidor, Has more of a kick(med-Full,which I like best) than the conn. wrapper.

smooth smoke with a good body
Well, I didn't expect much from this cigar even though I'd read some favorable reviews. I am pleasantly surprised! Just a couple days off the truck, this is a smooth smoke with a good body. I'll let the rest of them nap for a while and see how they mature. Happy with the purchase. It's none-too-complex but easy-smoking and enjoyable for a maduro lover who doesn't want to be bowled over with spice... Cheers!

A Novel In The Making
I've been eyeing the Mark Twain brand for some while and have been skeptical about pulling the trigger on these up until now. I got the no. 3 and I have to say boy am I glad that I did. I just couldn't pass up the girth of this Gordo or the yummy chocolate PA broad leaf that engulf the smooth, creamy goodness confined inside. A+ for appearance, construction, ash, draw and a stellar A- for its taste profile. Trust me when I say guys that this gar is one fantastic huckleberry!

Memoir No. 3 is A-OK!!!
Bought a box and had to try one right off the truck with no humidor time. Very nice! Easy draw, lots of smoke, nice taste, oily on the lips. If I had humidor room I would order another box. Oh, and the nice box...good looking graphics.

Nice smoke, good even burn and a great value. Will purchase again. Only complaint is the sealed box came broken two cigars were damaged. Unfortunate because I save my cigar boxes. Don't know if this was done during shipping or not. Others appear fine and smoke great. Otherwise I would have given 5 stars.

Good blend, consistent overall from box to box. Good, sturdy wrapper that holds up well to the ridiculously hard to remove band. This is one of the few cigars I've kept buying after the sale was over. I may still be buying them the next time they go on sale.

Great Maduro (really!)
So this is a great smoke; really. To give you some comparison, some of my favorites are La Goria Cubana Serie 2, El Rico Habano Torpedo Oscuro, Bolivar Cofraida Oscuro, El Rey Del Mundo Oscuro.....So I like Maduro/Oscuro with Penn. or Conn. wrappers and Nicaragua / other filler. These Mark Twain Memoir Maduros really hold their own. I'm waiting for them to come back in stock!

Alright but not Spectacular Smokes.
Not a big fan of these. I usually find nice cigars for bargain prices at CI but these were not among that group. Heavy, flat, no nuances. WOn't order them again. Liked the price, but toward the end kinda dreaded lighting one up. Not spectacular.

Sour
This smoke was a disappointment. It had a terrible bitter flavor. Also, the size is gigantic. I smoked the 64, my jaw was tired almost immediately. Gave is some stars for good draw, good amount of smoke, and even burn. Horrible flavor though.

they were smooth for most part, many were dry even with weeks in the humidor. i enjoyed the ones that moistened up and the wrapper was firm on the lips and slightly sweet for the most part. a great experiment, but I'll try something else next time

The first cigar I smoked was excellent. The draw was good and it had a great flavor. I just smoked the second and the draw was ok but the burn was a bit inconsistent. I find when the the draw and burn are good, the flavor is great. I suppose that I need to smoke a few more to evaluate them.

TWAIN HITS THE MARK!
Although I smoke mostly 60 ring or better fatboys now I was interested in trying Mark Twain in the 8x54 size...Then they released the Memoir and I jumped at it. Glad I did! The Memoir is a great cigar! Medium to full in strength encased in a sweet maduro wrapper and boasting a beautiful smooth draw and a flavorful bouquet. All this along with a very reasonable price make Memoir a winner. I highlt recommend it!
5 out of 5
Delightful day, night or on the road.
I ordered a bundle on a sale.Thoroughly enjoyable with an evening glass of bourbon or scotch. nice mellow evening. I shared with a few biker friends that consider themselves aficionados and the were impressed. I'm about to order my second bundle, I'm hooked.
5 out of 5
Best everyday smoke ever
I can't believe how good this cigar is at this price point! I've smoked 26 of them to date, never a bad smoke among them. Well constructed, perfect moisture and draw, and solid never-overwhelming medium-full flavor. I don't have many finger burners in the rotation, but the memoir is certainly one. Hands down, it beats out many fine maduro competitors at higher price ranges. My current personal favorites are still the La Herencia Cubana Core and Oliva MB III, but I save those for special occasions. This is one heck of a smooth, creamy flavor-filled daily smoke! And the price keeps the wife happy to boot. Planning to stock up majorly on this one.

I first purchased this cigar when you had a sale and was hooked. I recently purchased my second batch. I am not a heavy smoker, and smoke about 2-3 a week. I find this cigar very rich and smooth. It does not burn hot, but burns evenly, and long lasting. It has become a favorite. There are beer cigars and whiskey cigars, and this is a whiskey cigar.

Fantastic Bargain!
The Memoir is a very enjoyable smoke. The wrapper is a little spicy until after that initial draw. It smokes nice and even with quality filler as the ash is far superior to that of the Connecticut Mark Twain. The Memoir smoke has definitive but mellow flavors of chocolate, coffee, and earth; and can be smoked well beyond the ring without the typical excessive burn or accompanying bitterness encountered in most Maduro cigars. Definitely worth keeping a box around at this price for everyday enjoyment.
