I ordered 5 just so I could try these. Boy am I glad it's all I wasted on them! It's not a cigar but a some weird kind of flavor stick, a bubble gum cigar is better.
When I first smelled it I got whiffs of cheap cologne, Old Spice came to mind but then I tasted it an it was sweet.
Sweet would have been ok except the smell of the "Old Spice" ruined the cigar. After smoking half I threw it out and figured I would try again later. Later came today and this thing was actually worse than the first, smoked about half again and almost puked.
I'm no cigar rookie and mainly smoke full flavored sticks but this was beyond bad for me. I want to taste tobacco but not with these smokes. I guess I should have known better but I'll try anything once plus a lot of positive write-ups and a 90 rating.
A few good points, nothing can be bad all the way around! The cigar is rolled perfect, nice cap, soft but not too soft, sweet label printed perfect. The smoke you can get from it is unreal as well for a mild/medium stick and that's with just a light pull.
My experiment with infused cigars being done, I may still try a grape King Edward blunt. It couldn't taste worse!

"My new favorite!!!"
WAO! It's the flavor, the aroma, the burn, the draw. Everything is prefect! Will buy a box!!!

"Good but great"
This is the kind of cigar you might want to smoke while playing golf or engaged in some other activity. It tastes better if you have some pause between draws, otherwise the cigar gets way too sweet, especially in the first third of the smoke. Overall it's fairly mild, nice blend, but the flavoring the leaves were soaked is it bit too artificial tasting for me. All that being said, if you wait about 30 seconds between draws, it's a nice smoke. Would probably buy this cigar again, the next time I play golf.

"Great Mild Cigar"
Great mild cigar for after dinner or any time you don't want to be permeated by the smell of a full-bodied stick. It's nice to have a pleasing aroma that doesn't scare off the kids.

Not impressed at all, i found it to be overpriced and dull. I was very turned off by the sweetener on it and couldn't detect any redeeming qualities in the flavor of the tobacco. I also found the burn to be much to fast and the wrapper leaf was terrible cracked in two places. I found the cigar to be an inferior experience to any cigar in its price range

I got these in the "best of drew estates sampler #1". The aroma of the unlit cigar is misleading (fruit loops or smarties)as it doesn't really carry over to the flavor very much. This is more about a sweet cigar with a very nice aroma. It is very mild and smooth and is obviously a quality cigar, it just isn't something that I would seek out, but I do think that if you haven't tried one, you probably should you might like it.

"Not a real cigar -- swisher sweet"
Was very excited to try this based on the ratings, but quickly discovered this is a cigar for folks who don't really like cigars. Tastes like it was dipped in a pool of liquid smarties or fruit loops. Tobacco itself seemed of good quality but could not get past the overall grossness of the fact that it was dipped in a sweetener.

I thought I was getting a great deal for 10 cigars when the Drew Estate sampler was offered for $29 when ordering Oliva Double Robustos and Rocky Patel 1990s. I didn't know they were spiced. The Kuba was awful with a sweetness like putting too much sweet and low in a cup of coffee. I guess it may be OK for kids, but not for people that like a fine cigar.

"Not a fan"
Not a cigar for me. Taste was mild and ok. I thought the construction was poor and the burn was terrible. I was disappointed with the overall experience.

Got these in the mail from the family. They lasted the week long trip to afghanistan and still were perfect. The aroma was top notch, taste was superb, and just the overall feel of the leaves its rolled in was great. This cigar is by far a Favorite at the top of my list.
