This is one of, if not the worst smokes i have ever had. I barely got past the first third and then threw it out. When people say that conn wrapped cigars can taste like chemicals, this is the cigar that they have to be talking about. I barely tasted the tobacco, that's how strong the chemical taste it-almost metallic. Forget about tasting nuts, cedar, hay, or anything else-if you just taste tobacco, you should be ecstatic. My normal smokes are davidoff classic 2, ashton 898, diamond crown #6, or cabaiguan corona xtra. I don't expect anything at this price range to taste anything like those cigars, but this was beyond horrible. For a good, cheap conn, try the private stock cigars made by davidoff. Those are NOT factory seconds and cost like $3 a stick or less on a box. These are a complete waste of $ and i'll be giving mine away to people who dont usually smoke cigars. I can not even take the chance of smoking another one of these pieces of crap bc that horrible taste will continue to linger.
Got some of these in a sampler and it was a pleasant surprise. First of all, the cigar, wrapped in premium USA Connecticut leaf, is flawless and solid. On the medium side, but definitely a mild smoke that delivers a complexity not at all expected in a $3-and-change cigar. Some folks here compare this cigar to Occidental; personally I find the Occidental milder than the DT SE and the Occ's also got a much less complex flavor profile. Some folks here complained about the construction and draw; I'm on my third stick w/o any issues. I think most of the people who posted here with issues on the taste have a certain bias against milder smokes; one thing this cigar is not is full flavored.
I just received my Don Thomas S.E's,and WOW! what a great smoke.If you like a mild to med.cigar this is the one.Draw,burn & taste are excellent.I will definitly buy some more of these again!
I am a novice cigar smoker in that I have just recently started to smoke them ore than just once in a while. I ordered a sample pack to see if this wa something I wanted to do. I was greatly surprized I found them to be a well ballanced and flavorfull cigar that I have no trouble smoking regularly. I am placing an order for a couple of boxes in the morning.
