"What have they done with my favorite cigar?"
I read the other reviews before ordering, but I've
been a Don Thomas SE smoker for years and have always
loved their flavor, aroma, burn, and total enjoyment,
so I didn't pay much heed. However, I don't know what changed (the wrapper),
but they are actually quite terrible. They're painfully dull tasting and harsh. What have
they done with a great product? I dare say this will
have to adversely affect the sale of this cigar.
How sad. I'm contacting Famous to return the box
and also request they don't send the back ordered 5 pack sampler.
If you order this cigar, don't say I didn't warn you...

"Good........But not that good."
Dissapointing. Expecting a great cigar, I found the Don Tomas Special edition to be only an average cigar. I liked the taste, mild and perfect for any time of the day, but the burn was terrible, often burning down one side of the stick. If they had been constructed better, these would be my favorites.

"Some are inconsistent, but still a good smoke"
My first experience was a good one. After ordering a box, I found many of them rolled loosely with too fast a burn. Taste is relatively mild, but some may find the taste a touch harsh. A very good value from a solid premium cigar maker.
