So one night, a couple buddies and I decided to taste a couple of our cigars without the original bands and numbered bands instead. Non of the numbers were the same for each smoker so we couldnt smoke the same cigar at the same time- we did this independently I should mention- Don Tomas was one of our smokes that consistently among all of us was rated among the top 2 out of 6 premium handmade cigars. Excellent smoke, consistent, light start strong finish, and very aromatic even to the nonsmoker. And well priced.

"Very good cigar for the price"
Im a newbie in the cigar world, about a year now. Have been in search for the best everyday cigar since day one and I may have found it in the Don Tomas Classico. The Flor De Oliva Gold Is a close second for me.

"Yeah, don't but them!"
I'm with Bill of MD. Hate on these BIG time so there are plenty for us. Got one of these in a sampler and bought a box straight away. Mine have been consistent in performance and flavor; staple smoke quality. I like the DT Cameroon line as well and I?m trying the maduros next, so don't buy any of those either!

"Would not purchase"
The taste of this cigar was awful. Looking at the appearance, how it smelled, even burn, I thought this whould be a nice cigar. But after a couple of draws, the flavor was awful. It was so bad, I had to throw it away after a few minutes. The problem was I didn't get rid of it soon enough, the taste stayed in my mouth to the next day.

"Good flavor, but rolled tight"
After seeing some good ratings, I purchased a few of these cigars while on a trip. I thought they were great, with a pretty complex flavor for an inexpensive medium cigar. I bought about twenty of them in two different sizes, but they are so tight that it's a struggle to smoke them. I've aged them and experimented with different humidity levels, but can't get them any looser. I'm hoping I got two bad batches in a row, though it seems unlikely. Still, I plan to buy a five pack and give them one more try, especially since my wife likes the aroma.

When I read some bad reviews of a good cigar, I feel compelled to make my own review to set the record straight. When you have a great smoke, like the Don Tomas clasico,(highly rated by the experts), and it gets a bad review from some of our inexperienced,(or in some cases "experienced but ignorant" smokers), the bad reviews are ussually due to a poorly calibrated hygrometer, poorly kept humidors, or as we all know a poorly timed smoke,(empty stomach, wrong drink paired, etc). this cigar is one of the best value cigars out there, very complex for a medium bodied cigar. Keep these in your well-kept humidor for a couple of weeks after buying and enjoy!

"Don Tomas Classico"
Not much oil on the wrapper but otherwise a good looking cigar that has plenty of cedar flavor,a good burn and a very good finish.They improve even further with about three to four weeks in a well kept humidor.This cigar has certainly became one of my favorites.

"These Cigars are outstanding considering the cost"
I think this is one of the best bargains known to man, at this time anyways. The reason I tried these, was because they were listed in the top 25 cigars of 2006 via Cigar Aficianado, The Presidente was rated a 91. Plus the value at my local shop was about 6 bucks for the Presidente. When I lit it up it did have a woodsy (almost leathery) taste to it. I don't fancy myself as an aficianado to recognize all those flavors listed in the magazine, but much to my surprise was an awesome cigar experience. I have now had the Robustos and they are as well as good as the Presidente. The draw is absolutely amazing. Do yourself a favor and at least order a 5 pack sample of your favorite size. Guaranteed not to dissapoint..........

"If it ain't broke........"
I prefer the old blend! The Classicos were a dissapointment. The old Don Tomas Robusto in the natural wrapper was my favorite.
