Don Diego Reviews
The Don Diego Torpedo and an older brother sat in my humidor as I worked around them for years. The older brother was a thinner, shorter cigar, and with a claro wrapper no less. That cigar must have sat in my humidors for six years or more. It was cracked and flaking, but I finally girded myself to put the step-child out of its misery like I had its prettier cousins. I enjoyed that cigar thoroughly, and smoked it down to my fingers. It was very smooth, and perfect for a hot day working on the landscape. The torpedo the following weekend was equally superb for the same task. That too singed my fingers before I could part with it. Now with a two cigar trend going, I will surely smoke another Don Diego soon, and perhaps start buying by the box!
These used to be a good smoke but in the past year their quality has drastically gone downhill. Everything from poor wrappers, broken/punctured sticks, to inconsistent packing creating a hard draw.
For me, cigar this was non-smokeable. I gave 2 of them a try but could not finish it. It was slightly better than smoking a paper bag.
I m a big fan of Don Diego Lonsdales so when I had an opportunity to pick up a box of coronas, I took it assuming it would be just as good. Big mistake. I found these to be very inconsistent with over half being extremely harsh and bitter. I ll stick with mu Lonsdales.
Picked up one from a local smoke shop and wasn t disappointed. Smooth taste throughout. Good draw and even burn. Nice late morning 45 min. smoke. I ll be picking a few more.
I have smoked these for several years and they were very good but the last two boxes were awful. Can't put one down for 10 sec. without having to relight. Very inconsistant burn. Will be looking for a substitute.
believe it or not this little cigar packed a mouth full of flavor for one hour 45 minutes! This was probably one of the more value priced cigars I have ever smoked. Best bang for the buck!
Gave up cigs and moved up to premium purpose. This was one of my first favorites. Mild, pleasant smoke with consistent quality construction. Occasionally burns a bit unevenly, but not too hard to handle. Grandes hold a permanent space in my humidor. A great value for a premium smoke.
I found these in a local tabacco store that had a case of some higherend cigar brands. I saw these little guysin there and figured id try them they are a good mild smoke and as is pointed out some do have a tight draw but nothing to tight. plus they were inexpensive compared to the other ones and now have been my go to smoke when i dont have a bigger better cigar.
