"As nice as the Occidental Gigante (nearly)"
A good cigar and a brand I smoked 20 years ago.Still a pleasure but just behind Alec Bradley's Occidentals.

Ordered a box of these and received 20 free of
various lengths and ring gauge. Everyone I have smoked has been excellent. Very smooth draw, great gray white ash, construction was flawless, appearance excellent, taste good. These have to be the very best value available. I have not been disappointed with any of the S.E. or the cameroons, or dominican selections. If you don't like these cigars then you are just too hard to please. I will stack these up against other premiums that are 3 and 4 times the price. Thanks again to Famous Smoke.

This cigar has become my main smoke. Very consistent, mild, good burn and ash formation. Can't beat the price.

"BEST OVERALL VALUE AVAILABLE"
I HAVE BEEN SMOKING THE SPECIAL EDITION 300'S AND 600'S FOR ABOUT 5 MONTHS. I FIND THEM TO BE ABOUT THE BEST VALUE YOU CAN FIND IN THE CIGAR WORLD. THE COLOR AND TASTE IS EXCELLENT. THE CONSTRUCTION IS VERY GOOD AND THE BURN IS QUITE CONSISTANT. THE THING I LIKE THE BEST IS THE SOFT, SMOOTH, EASY DRAW. THE SINGLE WORST THING A CIGAR CAN HAVE IS A HARD DRAW. I HAVE DUMPED $40- $50 DOLLAR CIGARS THAT WOULD NOT PASS SMOKE WITH A SHOP VAC. THE DON TOMAS SE IS THE BEST.

"Excellent Cigar no matter what the price"
Keep those over priced cigars! I'll take a Don Tomas SE Connecticut any day of the week! Excellent quality, smooth draw and exceptional flavor! BY FAR my favorite cigar.

"Easy Draw, Mild taste, even Burn, No after taste,"
I ordered the sampler pack. Smoked the #600, what a smoke. Mild to the taste. The cigar burns even and leaves no after taste. It has a silky smooth smoke, easy to draw. Great smoke. I'm ordering a box.

"A very pleasant cigar!"
This is a nice cigar especially for the price. The only bad thing I found was a little too easy draw.

Flavor was hard to describe - terrible, horrible, and awful come to mind. Couldn't finish it - hung in there till the half way point. You have to be a crack smoker to appreciate these. Another dissapointing Don Tomas - I give up.

"DON TOMAS SE 600"
I just broke open the box of 600s and was extremely pleased. I don't know if the previous reviews were done by crack smokers not familiar with cigars or what, but I'm finding them to be just as I remembered them...delicious.
Really, a great value for the price.

"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...
