"Used to be a good cigar"
Used to be a good cigar but, anymore I use a cigar cutter to cut enough off the end so it doesn't end up a tarry mess. Seems to have happened about the same time they stopped using a nail to keep the box closed. Wonder if their accountants smoke cigars?

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

"What Happened"
I used to smoke these in 2011 they tasted good and the draw was not bad, good for the price! But in 2012 the cigar is so wet it turns to a mush and tar just drips out the hole, Wow what a bitter taste (Bought at Fred Meyer) Now I have to leave the cigars out for 2 days to dehumidify and cut the ends off so the tar won't concentrate at the end. Another thing the wrapping keeps unraveling so I just peel it off at the beginning.

"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.

"Once great, now terrible tast"
What happened? These were once the best cigars sold in country stores, now 75% of them are so bitter in taste soon after lighting them they cannot be smoked. AyC needs to correct this sooner than later.

"Taste has become awful"
These used to be the best cigars sold in country stores %26 gas stations. Now at least half of them develop a terrible bitter taste about 1/3 of the way into them. Please check this out AyC, and get it fixed! Don't let a good cigar go away.

"Not bad for a Drug store gar"
The AyC Grenadier cigar is, as far as drug store or gas station cigars go, in the upper end of the category. Like most well made machine cigars the flavor and burn and construction are almost always consistent. Sure once and a while you will get a cigar that is plugged, or the hole is punched incorrectly, but that is not often. The flavor is a very mild, almost blandish, dry tobacco flavor, with a hint of flavorings added to the homogenized sheet binder. The flavors in the binder taste a bit like chocolate and vanilla. This is not a sweet cigar, but as I said dry. The finale fourth of the cigar can be bitter at times, I think this is caused by the binder. Over all, as machine made cigars go, this is better then a Phillie or Dutch Masters, but not as good as a Muniemaker.

"Were once excellent. Now are horrible."
I started smoking the AyC Grenadier darks in 1983 and have LOVED them up until now. There would always be a low percentage of them that would deliver a bitter, ugly tar to your mouth after smoking it down a way. Recently, they are nearly ALL bad. You have to throw them away in the middle of the smoke. Something seriously wrong at AyC on these.

"Used to be a decent cigar"
These used to be a decent in between cigar, now it seems every other one is plugged or has holes in it making it unsmokable. They are in need of some serious quality control.
