"fewer cigars, less quality"
I too have enjoyed Backwoods for many years, since they switched to a 5 pack instead of a 8 pack, the quality has gone down hill very fast. Many holes, loosely packed, just kinda of crappy craftsmanship. I wonder what ever happened to quality control.......I just wish they would make the cigars as they used to.

"Love the cigar, Hate the 5 Pack!!!!!!!!!!"
I love your cigars,I used them to quit smoking cigarettes!! When y'all went to the 5 pack & couldn't find them anywhere I went back to Camels, believe it or not they are harder to get away from the 2nd time Thanx!!! They were hard enough to find in an 8 pack, now ya have to track them down more often!! Thanx again!!!!!!!! Bruster B. P.S. Y'all need to put a little more time & effort into Quality Control, 1 in 5 either are throw aways or have holes in them!!!!!!!!

"5 is not ALIVE!"
Boy...used to be good when they were 8 in a pack, now they went to 5 and I think the quality control people left town.....NOT GOOD.

"gone downhill badly"
quality control is horrible,2 out of 5 in new packs are throwaways, going back to chewing Redman,same construction.

"Smaller pack, but very fresh and juicy!!!"
not too fond of less cigars per pack but ive had really good luck with the cigars being flavorfull and moist. nothing beats a fresh Backwoods!!!!!

I will not participate in the downsizing of what was a great cigar. I have been buying Backwoods for years and this is just a smack in the face. Go back to the eight pack and raise the price a little if you need to.

"why did you go to a 5 pack! DUMB"

"Oh, Backwoods...what did you do"
I have been smoking backwoods for years. Favorite flavors are Honey, Honey Berry, and Rum, but since Honey is hard to find and they stupidly discontinued Rum I've been sticking with Honey Berry.
I thought it was just back luck that so many cigars lately seemed to be very loose but I guess it's not just me! I haven't noticed a big decline in quality otherwise but the carton price is BS. I can get the 5 packs at a local tobacco shop for $3.55 each which is just over half what the old 8 packs cost...not too bad I suppose?

"quality going downhill"
The package quanity & quality have both decresed.
I tried the Ugly Coyote as a possible comparison.They do not compare in taste or smoothness.I will stick with Backwoods for sure.
