"Mild and Smooth"
These are attractive cigars with a very mild smooth flavor. I find that many of the cigars I buy will go harsh or bitter during the final third, especially if I have to relight. I had to relight these a few times which was annoying but no bitterness; just mild and slightly sweet all the way to the end. I think what caused the relight issue was the soft spots in two or three places along the cigar where it felt like some fill was missing. I you are in a store and are buying the packs, I would recommend giving each cigar a slight squeeze through the packing. If they all seem firm and tight then go for it, otherwise try to find packs with the least amount of soft spots. Definitely a quality control issue but not something that would drive me away.

"Poor Product Consistency"
Each cigar is a coin flip, either enjoyable or horrible. I have switched to the dark version which has better consistancy.

"Very mild and easy smoke"
For a light weight like me these were excellent, very mild and easy to smoke. The wrappers have some inconsistencies in them and starts to fall apart in you mouth usually before you finish it all. However for the price, a great value for a casual cigar smoker.

"great and inexpensive"
I'm naturally a bit of a snob so I got a single on a lark. It was splendid. Just as nice as a cordial sized Ashton might be better. I liked it more.

"best sub dollar machine rolled"
All tobacco with a paper binder. I've smoked a lot of minis that cost as much, don't last as long or taste as good. Really like the natural sweetness and green color of the candela wrapper. Not sure why they call it light. 1st third is on par with much more expensive cigars & very mild. Middle third is more medium bodied and rich. Last third is often bitter. I keep a wood screw handy for reaming ones that don't draw well. Fairly consistent quality with about every 12th pack of six having one or more rejects. Just wish these 50 boxes were easier to find.
