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.

Tight draw/Low smoke
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.

Nice stick..
I love these sticks as I am an up and coming ethuiest cigar smoker I have enjoyed these. Nice draw nice oak and earthy taste and not to mention the $ can't go wrong. Will expand my collection w/these gems.

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 Author; Even Better Cigar
Always wanted to try these, and delighted I did. Just a very enjoyable smoke at a reasonable price. I intend to always keep a stash in my humidor.

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!
5 out of 5
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.

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!

Good Mild Smole
I like to start the day with a mild smoke and the Mark Twain fits the bill. It is an inexpensive everyday smoke and one I enjoy whenever I am working outside.

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!

Sort of dry and easily flaked apart. Other than that it's a solid smoke. Hopefully my humidor can revive them a bit.

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.

Consistent blend
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.

I call them my " Goldilocks " brand.
Not to strong, not to weak, but just right. Great construction, easy to smoke, and a good taste. And last but not least a good price. Get some!

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!

Surprisingly good
This stick was a pleasant surprise. Good burn, plenty of smoke, medium strength. Good tobacco flavor with a little sweetness on the finish. A good everyday smoke.

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.

A nice long smoke. A little hot toward the end but by then I am pretty well finished with it. Well worth the money!

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

A good Value
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.

I got the Mark Twains in the honest pour sampler, and I must say I was truly impressed. I am a fan of the Maduro wrapper and Mark Twain's Memoir smokes don't disappoint. A flavorful and enjoyable cigar that fits perfectly with a nice cold Guiness and easily affordable enough for an everyday smoke. Thanks, Shawn C.

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.

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.

Mark Twain Memoir No. 2
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.
