"They're Kidding, Right?"
I'm amazed that anyone could like this cigar. Before I lit it , I put it in my mouth to taste the wrapper and got a mouth full of off sweet taste that won't go away. I decided to be brave and light the thing and put it down after one puff. I knew if I continued I was gonna be sick. I may try lighting the wrong end, but not until this taste goes away. If you like diet cola syrup, you'll like these.

"REVERSE THE CURSE"
Like some others who have tried "Dirt", I found it to be almost sickeningly sweet & was going to throw the rest in the trash, before my wife came to the rescue. Not being a cigar smoker, she mistakingly lit the wrong end of a dirt while I was not home. just for the heck of it, I took a few draws, and to my great surprise, when smoked from the wrong end, this is a very good cigar, & avoids the overly sweet candy taste. I know it sounds crazy, but try it & I think it will change your mind about this cigar.

This is by far one of the best cigars I have had it is very rich but not over powering.The smell of this cigar remindes me of a pipe and the tase is just wonderfull, people seem to think this is a flavored cigar just because it is from Drew Estate but it is not, so if you like rich, chocolatey and wet tasting cigars with no dry or harsh aftetase this is one you should try.

"The best small cigar EVER !"
Tried this when I picked one up in a small shop and have been hooked ever since, my humidor is always full. Above any I have had the BEST, including Cubans'and it is great with coffee.

"Dirt? More like mud."
My last order from Famous came with a sampler of a Natural Dirt and a Natural Root. I lit up the Dirt the other night, and nearly spit it out on first light. It had this off-sweet taste to it, almost like there was a cross between sugar and Sweet N Low in the entire wrapper. I hoped it would go away after a while, so I gave it a fair try. It didn't. This is the first cigar I have tossed away in under a half-hour of smoking and not even tried to finish. Avoid at all costs.

"Quickly became my favorite"
I picked one of these up when my friends and I went to the local cigar shop on a nice afternoon to sit outside and relax. I had Acid cigars before, and love the Drew Estate company, but they COMPLETELY outdid themselves with this one. It is a smooth, creamy smoke, tastes delicious, and lasts just about the right amount for me. I like petit coronas and robustos, and it is just the right size. Burned perfectly and drew quite nicely. I am hooked.

"Different Type of "Flavored""
A customer of mine gave me a Natural Dirt to try. After a meal, I sat down with a coffee, and fired this stick up. The taste from both seem to compliment each other. Smooth, and somewhat creamy, I would recommend this for a once in a while "change".
Like other products I had from Drew Estates, they are, to me, smoked once in a great while. As with all of their products, I found out that over indulgence is a bad thing.

"Terrible...perfumy if that is a word"
Bought because I heard they were pretty good and different. I couldn't finish it fast enough. I guess I shouldn't criticize it for what it is an aromatic, but it is almost overpoweringly so, the flavor is nauseating and ruined the Guiness I was drinking with it.
