"Best of the lot"
New to cigar smoking, purchased five packs of Ashton, Don Diego, Macanundo, and Griffins. The Griffins were by far the most enjoyable. Smooth, even burn, good construction to the end. Will be buying a box of these!

"NO PRETENDING--THIS ONE'S TOP NOTCH"
Bought a few robusto singles to sample and my expectations were all confirmed: this is a rich, classy, genuinely premium cigar. It was never too strong yet never short on satisfaction. Don't smoke this cigar out in a breeze or you'll lose 70% of the experience! I smoked it in an alcove of my porch where the air is still and I could savor its perfect aroma. I imagined my porch to be an opulent smoking room at Chateau Lake Louise, and my plastic patio chair to be an overstuffed leather smoking chair No pretending at all with the cigar--it was all real! My wife even gave her limited approval.

"The Griffin Robusto of all sizes is best"
Tried these early in my cigar education and they've been a staple in my humidor ever since. Great flavor, consistent taste, burn and draw which is always complete, effortless and thick. Wow, excuse now, I have to go...

"I love this smoke"
The robustos are my favorite. A great anytime cigar. Of all the Griffin's I have smoked, I have never had a bad one. Every one has been consistent from beginning to end. Aged for a month or so in the humidor, fantastic. I always have a few Griffin's on hand.

The draw and burn were excellent. That's it! The taste was terrible. Nothing special at all - why does everyone like this cigar? I wasn't impressed at all - taste is bitter - I couldn't even finish it.

"I've found my favorite cigar...finally!"
As with most cigar smokers, I've always searched for that elusive "perfect" cigar. The Griffins has turned out to be mine. Perfect draw, construction, flavor, appearance, etc. I have none of that BS of "hints of nuttiness with essence of so-and-so". Just a damn good cigar!

The cigar is very mild but has excellent flavor. Burns evenly.
