A bold return. From the late 19th century through the early 20th, Red Lion, PA was among the largest cigar-producing towns in the country, with 30 factories producing millions of cigars. Among their most heralded brands was their namesake, Red Lion, and now it’s back with plenty of old-time charm. Don’t be fooled by their small size, this handmade cheroot combines Pennsylvania Broadleaf and Kentucky fire-cured tobaccos to create a hearty, robust profile filled with spicy, smoky-sweet flavors.
I haven't tried these, however, I do smoke Parodi Kings. Just 4 1/2". These are not designed to smoke like a regular ceeegar. These are dry wrapped so no humidor!! They can be smoked over a day or two with multiple relights!! This is now my daily go to. Can't wait to try the bigger brother!
Amazing right off the truck! Can wait to see after they rest!! Great everyday shortie! Side note: comes in a very nice box and in plastic which is perfect to avoid mess in humidor!
These are tough to keep lit, but well worth keeping the lighter around. Great smokey taste with some heat at the end. I'll be getting more of these for sure! Really like the taste, and perfect timing for a quick smoke. CI does it again.
Great smokey flavor, much like the Drew Estates MUWAT KFC, although I believe the KFC to be a bit more robust and aromatic. I love the fire cured sticks! I have found a very inconsistent draw with these sticks though. I've only had about ten out of the box and have found they run the gamut in the area of draw. Three of these were tossed so far because there was no draw at all no matter how much I pinched or rolled it. Maybe I recieved a bad batch. Flavor is exceptional for the price when they would draw.
When I received my CI catalog and saw the Red Lion Cheroots and saw they were made with maduro P.A. Broadleaf and K.Y. fire cured tobaccos, I thought, what's not to like! So, I went staight to the computer and ordered a box.
These little Cheroots pack a punch, with a robust, smoky campfire taste and aroma that I enjoy, and at CI's price I can enjoy them all day long without breaking the bank. My wife even enjoys the aroma of these little guys.
My only gripe is why in the world would the factory cellophane a cigar this small. Other than that and wanting them to be a little bigger, this my new go to daily smoke.
Pretty decent smoke. Good flavor, although the description is slightly misleading. I read "fire-cured Kentucky" and thought Dark-Fired Kentucky(my fault). Consider these a cheaper alternative to the Drew Estate KFC delphinas. Nearly identical in flavor. Short-filler, single binder, and a wonderfully thick and tasty PA Broadleaf wrapper. At $40 for a box of 60, you can't go wrong.
Hey you old time tobbaco buffs! Full tobacco taste ROTT. After 2 days in the humi, tastiest smoke you can buy or try! Thanks CI for bringing back an old-fashioned (Clint Eastwood) type smoke! Get'em now! Taste the old tobbaco flavors. Not a modern day or top shelf smoke, but well worth what you pay for...:)
