Quick, tasty, and an incredible value!Shrapnels are a great quick-fix when you're looking for the full cigar experience and don't have a lot of time. Comprised of quality, aged leaves these short cigarillos come in two varieties. The Naturals are traditional short ones offering a crisp, smooth flavor when time is of the essence, while the Sweets give you a great, sugary-sweet break from the norm. Perfect for 15 minute car rides or work breaks, these little guys rarely disappoint!
Buyers Remorse! I regret only buying a 50 pack instead of the 100 pack. These little guys (sweets) are a great smoke for around 15 min. Overall good times.
Great mini cigar, especially for golfing! Nice taste, nice burn, and great price! I highly recommend you try them out!
I have been buying these little tasty cigars for years. They are the perfect size for golf, poker, and going to Seahawks games. My only critique is that they are no longer individually wrapped.
Good short smoke, although some were broken.
Good little smokes. I'm always on the lookout for good cigarillos. These have definitely made the reorder list.
Good for a casual smoke. I got a few of my friends into cigars with these. Nice light flavor with a sweetness that is not overkill. Just remember to take it easy, it is easy to over heat them as your draw will heat these up more due to the small size.
These are great little smokes. Only had to cut a few to help the draw. Very sweet tip that goes away quickly. Don't leave a bad taste in my mouth like the Cuban Honeys. Just ordered more. Well worth the try.
Was hoping for a quit, decent, mini-cigar to enjoy during intermissions of sporting events or whatnot. I was very disappointed in this product. Taste at most times, was lousy. Very inconsistent as to the fill of the cigar. At most times it was as if you were smoking only the wrapper....
Quite disappointed in these little guys. I am a frequent smoker of the Banditos and figured I give these a shot. They are so small and skinny that I can smoke one in less than 3 minutes. The taste is okay, nothing special, but my banditos last me about 10 - 15mins and I was hoping for the same.
Very good little smoke when pressed for time. Not as sweet as expected but still worth having a box around.
A tasty and great short smoke, I have been enjoying them for years!
Unbeatable for a short smoke at work
Amazing! These are a great "quick smoke"...wonderful flavor!
Very good for a quickie!!
And, I might add, they are loosely filled, burn my throat, smell funny, and burn hot half way down. And don't stay lit? Too bad, because they used to be a great little smoke!....
Wow very impressed with these little guy's great for a quickie . I would definitely recommend them.
I'm not much on cigars, but prefer a pipe. Thought I'd try these, though. They are not bad for a quick smoke. Better than Swisher IMO. They have a slight sweetness and I'd put them at mild to medium body. Much tastier than a lot of more expensive larger cigars. Nice for a little cigar and pretty smooth to the end. I get about 10 minutes smoke if I don't let it go out, relights are still good to. I think they are dry cured. I've kept them in the original box for about 3 weeks now with no ill effects noted. Nice for when I'm on the bike or working in the yard. Nice price, too. I will probably order some more. They are not as sweet as Backwoods, but are better made.
Pretty darn good for what they are!
I got the Shrapnel Sweets and they are a great tasting little smoke well worth the price.
Shrapnel cigars are a great smoke. I love them.
Pretty good initial light and puff. I'm talking about the sweetness you get from this sucker. It's a great smoke after a meal because of the sweetness. The Tobacco isn't too weak or too strong.
Other than that, the heat isn't to harsh and the tongue bite isn't noticeable. Like I said, smokes well after a good meal.
Go try one out your self!
Good quick smoke not the best I have but still good for the price.
Great tasting little sucker. Keep a box nearby for quick fix, and in the car for break time
Good quick fix, nice flavor, sweet price.
Very tasty, smooth to the end, burn quickly, maybe smaller than stated....More like 26 to 27, but still a deal. Nice with coffee after breakfast.
A mini with some flavor! Well worth the mmao bid...
Not a bad little stick... good value for the money....If you're looking for a good value on an average stick you can enjoy in a short time frame... get this one.
The draw is a little tight, but the taste is great. I had a cigarette smoker and a Black & Mild smoker both ask me what these were because they smell so good. They are cheap, so I was like, here you go, try one for yourself. Apart from having to trim the butt a tad (to help with the draw), neither I nor my co-workers have any complaints with these little guys. I've also been using these in some infusing/flavoring experiments. Good results so far.
These came in very handy during my deployment in Afghanistan. I didn't need an hour or more of free time to enjoy a smoke. The sweets were by far my favorite. Smooth & good consistent flavor with no strong aftertaste.
Great little smokes, been sharing them with family and friends. They're a hit all around. Anyone who likes cigarillos is likely to enjoy these.
These are great little cigars. I bought a box to try and I loved them so much I bought several more and even gave one away to a good friend as a birthday gift. Very mild, sweet and well rolled, they are great for short car trips and for the price! Awesome!
Tried about a dozen different little cigars looking for good flavor and smooth smoke without the bitter or bite. These do the trick nicely and come in at medium flavor of La Aurora clippings. Its a small length of full leaf wrapped with a spiral of what looks like a maduro of heavy dark leaf. These are very smooth and have great Dominican flavor. You will have to clip at least half of them as they terminate into a twist with various draw holes or none at all. Of course a twist of leaf and wrapper needs puffing to stay lit but its worth the mini me of a bigger tasty cigar. Better keep a bunch in your pocket as you will smoke em like a couch potato eats doritos.
Its like someone exploded a table of super tasty La Aurora big guys and then took the shrapnel and twisted the dark leaf wrapper around a remnant of a tasty matured Dominican into these homemade smokes. Each one is different in the termination and they are twisted in a tapered fashion. Your smoking mileage may differ as you puff to keep 'em lit and you will want to have clippers to cut end and tweezers to smoke these to the very limit. Best smoke of a dozen brands tried and as strong as the VS series 55 mini Corojo thanks to the dark wrapper
Nice throw-down smokes. Price can't be beat. The smoke is really nice out of them, taste is good, burns fast but not a surprise given their size. Smoked a handful of them so far out of the pack and have not had any problems. Some have to be cut others are already open at the end for quick smoking. Each is individually plastic wrapped for on-the-go smokes. No complaints, well worth the price to stock up for when hunger strikes.
These little guys are great. I've found that a select few of the box of fifty were too tightly packed creating to strong of a draw (making the cigar useless). I guess you get what you pay for. The cigars that had a good draw however were great. I'll still buy another box!
lets see where to begin. These are great little cigars packed with flavor. burns nicely except they burn hot. other than that great buy and going to get some more.
Aroma and taste were pretty decent and I liked them for that quality. But, draw on the few I have smoked has been the pitts. Got to keep drawing hard to keep it going. Does not produce a lot of smoke. I am smoking one right now as I write this review and I am not a "happy camper" because of the draw, way to tight. But, maybe this is just a bad one (draw wise) and others may prove to be OK. For taste and aroma pretty decent and would buy again. But, if follow up smokes prove to have the same hard draw, I will not buy again.
For the price of 20 beans for 50 (Shrapnel natural) these cannot be beat. Decent tobacco taste and aroma, burn nicely, and are all tobacco. For my money, Schrapnels, the Don Lino Habanitos, and the Cafe Creme offer the best bang for the buck. One of the best little cigars you can by IMHO.
I just got these little superstars and fired one up and was really,really pleased in the sweet taste and all tobacco, no paper! I liked them so much, I gave away most of the first box of 50 to several friends. For me, the only downsize was how fast I go through smoking them, I get maybe 5-10 minutes and it becomes a little nubby thing you would see in a spaghetti film with Clint Eastwood. I would definitely recommend these to anyone that likes flavored cigars and short time to smoke them like a work break. I will buy these now each time my humidor gets empty of these. Thanks CI for selling at a great price!
The package came on right on time today. It was neither too fast nor too slow in coming. After opening it, I beheld the little box and smoked my first two sticks from within. The first one was fair-tasting and the second would probably have been too, were it not clogged. I don't have the device for fixing this so I tossed it.
"Shrapnel" is cheap and better than gas-station or drugstore cigars, and I'm satisfied. I'll probably try the flavored variety once I run out. 7/10
I bought a box of the naturals to try them out. Not bad at all. I will be buying more in the future. They don't taste like the premium cigarillos, but for the price they are close enough for me.
Big fan of the Sweets. Nice hint of flavor. Quick little smoke for when you don't have the time or don't feel like a full sized cigar.
The small cigars taste great. Kind of strong but very nice 15 mins smoking break. Get this if you always don't have time for a Churchill.
I was expecting a smoke the size of backwoods, these are about half that size. Not a bad smoke but entirely too quick for my tastes. SAs always though CI delivered them with lightning fast speed.
Taste great less filling
Just received my box of these guys, naturals. Smoked my first right away...the taste is different from the other small cigars I've tried...somehow much better...hey, it actually tastes like a cigar! I've tried many jr's, and so far these are the best. Try 'em, you might just like 'em.
These little lip smackin baby's are friggin great. No time to smoke a big smooth full bodied, this little bugger doesn't disappoint. Plus you can't compete with this drop dead great deal. I highly recomend it to all of my military buddies!
Compared to black n milds, these little beauties trump them in price, taste, and just about anything else you can think of. If you are looking for a nice cigarello, Shrapnel Sweets are perfect.
Hey, these little guys arent half bad. A good lil 15-20 min smoke for those "fixing something in the garage" times. Here in Wisconsin its 20 degrees outside, I can usually gulp one down before my fingers get numb.The sweets are really mellow and not overwhelming.Well anyway time for me to walk the dog, fix something in the garage, or work on that birdhouse again. (Wink Wink).
These little guys (Shrapnel) are great for a quick smoke. I ordered these last month and am loving the natural flavor. I now need to try out the sweets next time.
Mmm these are really good (Shrapnel), short and sweet like candy! It's pretty amzing how such a good small cigar can be as cheap as it is, definately worth the money. You will like these:)
A little smaller than i thought they would be but still very good in taste and even better value (Shrapnel)! go for the 100 deal, its a no brainer and is worth it.
This smoke is no joke. I have smoked almost every brand of small cigars, and these are by far the best. Great taste and smooth draw are rare in the little guys, but this one hits the mark on both. When time is short, Schrapnel Shorts fill the bill.
Just got my box of these short sweet and mild smokes (Shrapnel Sweets). I really thought I was getting a bigger size cigar, but no matter, I Like the taste but the smoke is too short for me.The speed in which I got my product was unreal ordered on monday AM and got the cigars on Tue way to go CI.
You sure got my Attention and My future buisness.
These little guys (Shrapnel Sweets) are great! Best small cigar out there for the price, in my opinion, anyway.
Good flavor with just a hint of sweetness. I'm pickin' up two boxes this trip!
I'm a hunter and got involved in a bit of a fire fight. After all was said and done I escaped with my life and loins intact but took a good amount of bird shot in my legs and keister.
So for the next 11 months I couldn't get around all that well. My friends thought it'd be funny to buy me a box of these here Shrapnel Sweets as a joke. Well no joke - these are good. They are sweet not like the big stinkers my Old Man used to smoke, and since they are so small you can smoke 20, 30, 50 a day! Short and sweet!
