5 x 50 - Maduro - Single
Helix X550 Maduro cigars are a smart choice if you're looking for an affordable, medium-bodied cigar. Expertly handmade with a well-balanced, four-nation tobacco blend, and naturally-sweet U.S. Connecticut Broadleaf wrappers, the smoke is rich, smooth and satisfying. A solid everyday cigar.
I have tried the X550 natural and maduro, I am a 10 year veteran smoker and I LOVE these cigars. Beautiful construction, perfect draw, never a re-light and huge mouthfulls of delicous smoke all the way to the end. The only mark against these under-appreciated gems is they may be a little too light in body for those special occasions that require a full measure of cigar enjoyment. Make em your everyday smoke I guarantee you will not be dissapointed!
This cigar serves very well as my every afternoon smoke. It consistently produces a slow burn and never bites back.
Terrible draw. I almost sucked out a filling trying to smoke this. Meanwhile the end kept unraveling. I thought someone had given me a prank cigar so I put it down before it exploded in my face.
After hearing a friend comment on this "fine" cigar I decided to stop at the local smoke shop to give it a try. My first impression was a good one. This cigar is good for the "beginner" that wants a consistent, full-bodied flavor that isn't too overdone, with a nice aroma and good price. The burn was a bit erratic in one, but a fine cigar indeed. It's on my list and highly recommended.
