Was real nice of this company to screw their customers over recently. They used to have 8 cigars per pack but now have 5 per pack and are still charging the same price if not more. I think it is time to find another cigar company that isn't out to take advantage of its customers in this economy. At least I might be able to find a decent replacement on this good website.
good taste very very poor construction and consistency, throw away 3 for every 25 i smoke. the company needs a good jack up and start improving their product. been smoking these for 10 years or more they were excellent 5 years ago and you got 8 to a pack.
The old vanilla cigars were great. They stopped making them and I reluctantly stayed with the honey cigars. I think they got so many complaints about seeds, loose wrapping and holes, they upped the quality, but started making them smaller and smaller. Now, they are only half as thick and burn twice as fast. If I can find a replacement for the flavor I ve become ucustomed to, I ll switch.
Good cigar just wished they were more consistent!
I have been buying and trying to smoke these cigars for years. I AM DONE!! I have spent a smooth fortune, and the quantity and quality have gone down tremendously! I have written to the manufacturer on numerous occasions, and I always get the same reply...we re sorry. On the average, 50% or more of the cigars are unsmokeable, whether it be due to small holes in the wrapper so the cigar won t draw, or hard tobacco and the cigar won t draw. I have spent my very last dollar on Backwoods cigars! When I actually get a cigar that smokes, it s a smooth tasting cigar, however that amounts to, on the average 2 cigars at most to a pack!
I love Backwoods, I wouldn t roll anything but. But they do have a tendency to be hit or miss on the quality. I buy them by the box and sometimes half the box is stale and or has holes throughout each Backwood. Considering the price over swisher one would assume this shouldn t be an issue. I refuse to smoke anything other than Backwoods. I collect all my empty packs cause I was told if you send in 60 you get a free pack. I m close to 200+ packs so I think its time to test that theory.
We need these in augusta, ga we do not have this kind or the honey an the limited edition honey buroun should not be limited they r the best I ve have an a lot ppls favorite backwoods
Remember the good old days when Backwoods was a proud make of cigars; Where you could get 8 Great cigars in a pouch. NOW you pay a premium for 5 consistently poorly made cigars; What the hell happened over these last 6 years. Why did Altadis think it was a good idea to ruin the brand? Is that the business model that makes the most profit for Altadis? When do you think that Altadis will think it s within it s corporate interest bring back the value to the consumer that Backwoods once had; How SAD.
Have been a Backwoods smoker for 20+ years. I have noticed, in recent years, how the quality has plummeted. You had a great product. What happened to the pride that you took in making your cigars? 1st to go from an 8-pack to a 5-pack, then the consistency of quality is GONE! Either rolled too tight to get a good draw, or using such a poor broadleaf that the outer wrapper is filled with tiny holes, again preventing a good, smooth draw. NOW, just to get an even light, I have to clip the end with my cutter before I light it. What a shame the pride is gone! I guess greed has taken over. We would rather make more $$$ than a great cigar. I say we look elsewhere for a great cigar because it can no longer be found here.
I must agree with all the comments I ve been reading. Every time I buy a pack it s a crapshoot. Sometimes the whole packet is unsmokable because they re stale and crack in your hands or they draw way too hard. Going from 8 to 5 is a real kick in the rear. It s a great smelling cigar when they are fresh and don t have holes in the wrapper. I often have people commenting on what a sweet smelling cigar I have, but the manufacturer has to get their consistency together and go back to the 8 pack. However, I don t want to buy eight cigars at a higher price and have them all be crap.
