"An Excellent Inexpensive Smoke..."
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...

"Not worth the price."
Tried these because I heard they were basically La Gloria "2nds". Very disappointed with the construction, taste, burn, just about everything. Have had the balance of the bundle in the humidor for about 6 months now. A little better taste, but still overpriced for what they are. Save your money and buy the La Glorias.

"Hope they get better"
Just got in from work out of town.Had my orders at my po box.1 box of Henry Clay Habana 2000 &Partagas Black Label & the EL Credito rothschild.Been trying to find a cheap cigar,since i've been somking about 4 or 5 a day.Tried to smoke one on the way home and could'nt keep the wrapper on.Then tried a second one later and it fail apart,and would'nt even light.Guess i'll let them age a little in the humidor and hope they get a little better---and keep looking for cheaper ever day smoke.

"Fragile, handle with care!"
I know this is a popular cigar, so I'm not going to bash it here. I read a review that stated it's wrapper was too thin, but ignored it since there were so many good reviews. Well, I learned the hard way: the wrapper is too thin. Be VERY careful when removing the cellophane, or you won't be smoking. Overall, the entire bundle seemed a little bit dry, too. Taste is OK, mine was bitter sometimes, though. After finishing this bundle, I bought a box of Quintero Robustos, for the same price. My suggestion: give Quintero a try.

"great bargain for a full-bodied smoke"
These smokes are a great deal (under $2). They have good taste,
draw well and burn nicely. Wrappers are thin and easily damaged, but
not usually a big deal. Try one, you'll like it.
