"Premium smoke at a great price"
El Credito Small Churchill
Maybe not the prettiest smoke or the best burn but the flavor is great. This is a bargain

"A daily smoke I can afford and Enjoy!"
El Credito Rothschild
Let them rest up in the humidor for a couple of weeks or longer, and be prepared for a pleasant surprise. Good draw, overall decent burn, starts mild, nearing full flavor at the end. Maduro wrapper just makes it great. Decent construction so far (#8) on my first bundle. Good flavor and the perfect size. I will be ordering more.

"An Excellent Inexpensive Smoke..."
El Credito Monarch
I purchase the Rothschild Natural 5x50 from my local B&M Valencia Cigars to try out and let it rest up in the humi for the last month. Easy draw, lots of smoke, no burn problems here, mild-medium body at the start and turning a solid medium body pushing full to the end. Ash held well for a good inch or so before tapping off. A couple of very mild crack issues in the wrapper but nothing to write home about. Decent construction on this stick and will now have to visit the Rothschild Maduro. Good flavor and enjoyed this size very much...

"FAST AND UNEVEN BURN."
El Credito Churchill
Looks like a lot of cigar, but it goes real fast and terribly unevenly. Any attempts to even up the burn with a lighter results in the whole thing torching.
Decent taste, though.

"Bad Burn and Construction"
El Credito Imperial
This is a very tasty cigar, but the construction and burn are consistantly BAD.

"Bad, Bad, Bad"
El Credito Super Habanero
I was really excited about getting these because of the rating, but when I got them they were a disgrace. They are all crooked and when I smoked one there was no draw. They are very tightly packed, have big hard knots in them and cannot be smoked. Now they have been in my humidor for about 4 months and almost still the same: hard, most have knots that prevent you from smoking them. I should have returned them but I didn't know better. Only 1 out of every 4 or 5 is smokable, but even then, they taste bad, harsh and are a total waste of your money.

"OK cigar but still undecided"
El Credito Small Corona
When another review compared it to the Montesino Napoleon Grande, it was pretty correct. Yes, they are very UGLY!!!!!!! Horrible veiny wrappers that are thin and can tear easily. Draw is good but they have plugged while smoking them but nothing to serious. Burn is good, no problems yet from them. Flavor is OK, not as good as Montesino Napoleon Grande. But for the price what do you expect. Overall the Montesino are better but these are an OK cigar.

For a cheap cigar these are great,strong and spicey.They get a bitter taste in the middle but soon turn sweet,a truly enjoyable smoke.I made this one last for an hour.Will buy a box to hand out after the birth of my first grandchild in November they are that good.Buy a 5 pack and see for yourself.

"Long-Time Go-To Cigar"
Have bought these on and off over the years. The more cigars I smoke, the more I appreciate this little cigar. I really like the nedium-full taste, easy on the pepper, that this smoke gives. A great 30 minute cigar, in the backyard or in a restaurant. Favorite is the maduro wrapper in the entire line.
