"Latest batch stale,dry and unsmokeable!"
For the last month I have bought buy one get one packs at to different convenience stores and the cigars are old, dry, won't draw, over packed, and when broken in half out of frustration, almost turn to dust!!!!

Mild cigars with aggravating wrappers. Pull tabs frequently fail. Very frustrating when on the golf course and have no knife available. May have to switch brands.

"Wrappers are disgsting!!"
After 30 years of smoking Phillies Blunts, I am disgusted with the wrappers and having to make the hole larger just so the smoke can come through!!!! What is going on???? If this keeps up, I am switching cigars!

"It's the lousy wrapper!"
I couldn't agree more than with what "John in Nashua, Nh" said! I truly like the cigar and have been smoking them for several years .... but the wrapper can be a real pain! It's better lately .... but still very unpredictable! As for the cigar itself, very mild, goes well with a glass .... or two .... of a good cabernet! My wife and I share many an evening on the patio winding down the day with a Phillies blunt and a glass of wine. Yes, my wife smokes cigars! She gave up cigarettes over 5 years ago when I introduced her to cigars! That's a real PLUS!

These things are a pain to get out of the wrapper.Where it has that little tab you pull to unwrap. It will go so far then it comes off without finishing completely leaving you to go get a tool to open it I got a knife and a pair of scissors to finish the job not just once but many times.Nobody give a damn about packaging. I've broken a few of these cigars just trying to get them out of the wrapper. Good smoke but lousy packaging.

Not for everyone except for those who like sweet cigars.

I have tried several cigars over the past couple months. Those include the Garcia y Vega Elegante, Dutch Master Palmas, Phillie Chocolate Blunts and the Phillie Blunts. I did not care for the chocolate blunts. I smoked a regular Phillie Blunt today. The taste was good. The burn is quick. It is a sturdy cigar. The smoke have a good aroma to it. But in the end, I will be sticking with the Dutch Master Palma. I will smoke the Phillie when I need a change.

I'm always on the look out for the best cigar I can get for a low price, don't go with the Phillie. The first draw is good but then you find yourself smoking just pure crap. Don't buy.

"Not a bad cigar"
I tried a chocolate aroma first and didn't appreciate it, sweet smoke, sweet tip, it was just too much, but I DID like the underlying cigar flavor. I took a chance and ordered a box from famous, a very nice mellow slightly sweet cigar perfect for a quick smoke or while working in the yard.
I have to mention that the cigars from famous were MUCH fresher and in better condition than the ones purchased at the local smoke shop. Thanks Famous.

A decent smoke for the money.Don't like the flavored ones but the regulars are decent.
