I wouldn't have minded the switch to a 5 pack from the 8 pack causing a price increase if the quality also increased. The wrappers are disgusting with loose wraps, holes, etc. The only positive is the flavor if a person is able to keep it lit. The last 5 pack, I only got 2 that were able to be smoked without a hassle.

"THIS IS A SAD DAY!!"
I HAVE BEEN SMOKING BACKWOODS FOR 12YRS. I HAVE ALWAYS ENJOYED THEM AND EVEN BROUGHT OTHERS TO THE BRAND. HOWEVER, AFTER READING THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS LATELY, I AGREE! THE QUALITY HAS GREATLY DIMINISHED AND TO GO TO 5 IN A PACK IS MORONIC AT BEST! I WILL NOT BE BUYING ANYMORE. HOPE TO FIND A GOOD REPLACEMENT.

I have to agree with the majority. Backwoods have gone backwards. Poor QC has turned me from my favorite smoke.

"Kick back Smoker"
I have smoked Backwoods for 25 years I am 48 today. That is half my life smoking the Sweet Aromatic. I hate to say but due to the price at my local store after the 5 pack came out I can't afford to pay more for less. I have been trying other cigars to replace these I pay $6.50 a pack for backwoods in my city and now 3 less cigars. Backwoods is doing us wrong and we need to let them know some how. I will buy them here at FSS because there priced right. I love the cigar, it is a pleasant smoke; mild and my wife and kids love the smell.

I am normally not a complainer but I am extremely disappointed in how Backwoods handles its consumers!!! 17 yrs as a LOYAL customer !!! Can you all please at least get the places we make our purchases to go down on the price also!!! What a slap in the face. You take one out the pack and you are half way done with it! It is not right. We aren't making more money but everything costs more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Out of all the machine made cigars ive tried, Backwoods cigars are the best by far, Rustic and rough, sweet smelling but mild, similar to pipe tobacco, only dislikes are the draws and the five pack idea

"LOST ANOTHER CUSTOMER"
Very disappointed in the declining quality of construction and the change in pricing and packaging strategy. Like many others, I am looking for an alternative. Backwoods has ruined their reputation for a good smoke with nice flavor and aroma.

It is too bad they have ruined a good deal. I agree going for 8 to 5 is a mistake since one or two in a pack are not really smokeable.
