"Reason to celebrate"
Brought home a '90 Miata today- 41,000 miles and great condition. Wanted to celebrate the occasion, so I went to the humidor for a 1916 Cameroon Churchill. It didn't disappoint. I've smoked a number of them, and enjoyed everyone. Good draw, even burn, clingy ash, great flavor. There will always be some in my humidor.

"Do not deserve such high grade"
I've never smoked anything worse.The cigars practically have no draw. Do not stay lit for a minute. As for the taste.. nothing to be excited about. To do the justice...- they do look good

"Not Sure"
I bought a bunch of these the other night to share with some of my buddies. The wives were out of town so we had a reason to celebrate!! The construction is great although the wrapper leaf tends to be pretty thin and starts to unravel when you cut it. This happened on all of the cigars. Also, 2 out of the 5 were plugged pretty bad. It wasn't that it was rolled too tight but they had some hard spots that we couldn't "massage" out. Also, I'm not to sure about the taste. I really couldn't nail it down but I just didn't like this blend. I tend towards medium to full maduros and this one just didn't do it for me. I also bought a CT Signature Perfecto Maduro which is supposed to be pretty good based on everyone's reviews. I'll give that one a try and see if I feel any different.

"Very Good but needs Strenght"
Well made,great wrapper,a little weak for me,expected more Cameroon taste also,overall good. If the company brings up the strenght to full trottle no cigar will beat it,no cigar.

"Great Smoke, Fantastic Price"
For less than 3 bucks a stick this is a fnatastic deal. I've smoked at least 3 boxes and have never had a plug or lousy burn. Great flavor, great value. I've spent lots more on cigars that deliver far less.

"slow and satisfying"

"excellent cigar, maybe? ...tight draw, Yes"
I bought a box and have smoked two within the 1st week. The initial cigar's draw problem was immediately apparent and the fragil wrapping was hard to keep in place. Several days later the 2nd smoked a bit better, but wrapper came apart and the draw was still too tight. Maybe letting these puppies rest peasefully in a humidor for while helps their cause... considering their price, I sure hope so.

Excellent by every measure - perfect burn, easy draw and conistently smooth medium flavor from beginning to end.

"One Fantastic Deal!"
I was checking these on the auction site and was appalled at some of the negative or "average" comments. I don't doubt the guys were describing their experience, but I've found these to be superb smokes! I've smoked them within days of arrival, and have some that have aged over a year, and they are always reliable, smooth, and flavorful. Construction is excellent -- they are handmade agricultural products and maybe one or two per box has flaws with the wrapper or canoes a bit, but I can accept that if the rest are excellent and these always are. Flavor is slightly sweet (the Camaroon wrapper coming through), rich and varied. In short, I love these! I'm always tempted to reach for a "better" (that means more expensive) cigar, but the reality is that when I really want to kick back and enjoy a great cigar, an adult beverage and good conversation, this is what I reach for almost every time. Highly recommended!
