MISTAKES

Description

As smooth as they come, MISTAKES is a wonderful everyday cigar.

This “smooth operator” is a dynamo that I can barely keep in stock. In fact I’ve got tons of customers who order nothing but this cigar. It’s easy to see why. MISTAKES give you premium flavor and terrific construction at a bargain price. They’re super-smooth, nice and mellow, made in a top-notch factory, and darn cheap. A beauty that’s simply a great everyday cigar. Have I mentioned how inexpensive they are? Made in the Dominican for CI exclusively, MISTAKES are gorgeous cigars rolled with Connecticut-shade wrappers and Dominican mixed fillers. Trust me, if you like pleasant, smooth, well-constructed cigars with a perfect draw....not to mention a cheap every day price, then this one’s for you. Overall it’s an extraordinarily compelling cigar for the money.

Good light cigar for the price. Burns for about a half hour. Nothing fancy, but they do get dried out pretty fast.

After trying various factory second smokes which always disappointed, I tried a pack of the CI Mistakes Churchill size. I was plesantly surprised. They are a nice smooth smoke. Perfect for mowing the lawn, playing a round of golf or just sitting around a fire pit with your buddies. They have a god draw and a nice mild flavor from start to finish. I immediately order two more bundles. You won't be disappointed.

"MISTAKES"

Gonz
Do I look like a guineau-pig? Well, I sure feel like one. This month, I've been given the "pleasure" to try a brand that got messed up. Yes, this thing was destined for the dumpster and it gets put on my desk. Gee thanks!

You can read the story of how we got these by clicking the link above. In short, it's designed to be a Knock-off of the Dominican Montecristo in flavor and appearance. Unfortunately, they goofed (b/c we could really use an alternative to the high-priced Montecristo.) It's a a mixed-filler cigar with a slightly burned CT-shade leaf (that looks like a Sumatra instead), loosely filled, but pretty. Yes, I said pretty. It's not offensive in appearance, the name is offensive - Montecristo "Mistakes". I can't smoke a friggin mistake. With great hesitation, and a mean-ass look from the higher-ups, I look forward to this like I look forward to preparing my tax returns.

I'm trying the torpedo "Mistake" at 6" and about 50 ring. It resembles the Montecristo No. 2 in shape-only. The wrapper is somewhat silky like the Montecristo, but it's too damn dark. It lights up like a torch - keep your arms and legs inside the moving tram, this is going to be quite a ride. The cigar is lit in 2 seconds MAX. Whoah!!! The smoke that bellows from this baby just smoked out my office mate. Sorry Larry - mucho smoko! I wasn't expecting it, my office cube now looks likes a head shop. I could really use a lava lamp to add to the ambience. Anyway, I digress.

The smoke is fulfilling (and a little overwhelming), but quite easy going in flavor. The burn is perfect - dark grey ash that holds surprisingly well for a mixed-filler cigar. The flavor holds its own, but won't knock your socks off. It burns fast and smooth. With the ridiculously low temperatures we've had up here in the Northeast, you can get in and out without freezing your butt off. I warn you, don't light this inside, your wife will flip - I'm not kidding about the smoke. The taste leaves a slight tingle in the back of the tongue. I can't identify it and it's not offensive - it actually adds a bit to the flavor.

I can't emphasize enough how well this thing burns. I only have 1/4 left and it has held very well. Other than the loose-fill, you would never know this is a mixed-filler cigar. It's a shame this was a mistake. We could sell these for $60 or $70 a bundle if it wasn't a "mistake." I need to talk to management, we need to change the name.

I just found out they're selling these for about $30 a bundle. That's a good deal. Since I lost my shirt last week at poker, I'm going to bring a bundle of these, take off the bands, and tell them their Cuban Montecristos. They'll never know the difference. Don't think of this brand as a "Mistake" and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Oh, how do I summarize thee:
- mucho smoko! Don't smoke this in the house
- silky, Sumatra-looking Connecticut-shade wrapper
- quick smoke
- good theory, bad execution
- well worth a $1.50 per stick
