"soledad lonsdale review"
I do not consider myself an expert on cigars, but I do know what I like. These Soledads are one of the worst tasting smokes I have had. I realise they are not top drawer cigars, but all things considered these are nasty. I have smoked about 5 or six and they are just as bitter as the first. I can detect no appreciable hint of flavor,the only thing I can say good about them is they burn evenly. Buying a drug store cheapy will give you the same smoking experience, possibly better. Your service at famous is great, I wish I could say the same for Soledad Lonsdales. Truly a waste of money. sorry guys. they are NASTY!

"off beat taste"
The burn and draw are fine but the taste was disappointing -- like a twice-lit cigar.

"Good Mild Smoke"
Soledad Lonsdale is a good mild smoke and a bargain at $35.00 a box.
For the best Draw, you need to poke these and leave uncut at the end. I smoked 3 Cigars so far and have enjoyed all of them. I will continue the solitude and add these to my Hummi! I also love getting my cigars in 3 days instead of weeks with some other smoke shops. Keep up the good work!

"Great Smoke for the Price!"
I was pleasantly surprised by this stick! I just went through a bundle and all of the smokes had a great, smooth and creamy draw. Plenty of smoke hovered in my patio when smoking them with a cup of coffee in the morning. This will become my "go to" cigar.

"need a cast for my neck"
firstly 3 out of 4 drew so hard that I had to throw them out after trying to unplug them. The fourth one finally gave me a flavor that I could identify. If they start to burn properly, they may not be too bad.

"Better than a soft shoulder to lean on?"
I gave up smoking 7 years ago. A herniated disc sent me out on the deck to lay back and heal. A cigar smoking friend suggested puffing on a smooth cigar to help relieve the monotony & calm my troubled soul. I stumbled on this cigar perusing F.S. web page. - The Londale is now as much a part of my day as my morning coffee; smooth tasting, great burn, nice aroma. This cigar has caused me to revert back to my tobacco loving self. Might even be better than a soft shoulder to lean on. For a short smoke I also enjoy the corona. Please keep stocking them...

I'm new to cigars so don't know all the terminology yet. So I will just say the Soledad's were fresh, smoked smooth, and were not harsh. I'm enjoying them in the evening while sipping a glass of Oban single malt. A great pairing.

"Great Everyday Cigar!!!!!"
I don't understand why anyone would pan this cigar. I think it rates up there with cigars that cost 3 and 4 times as much. This is my "go to" smoke. I love it. Only wish the wrapper was easier to take off.

These aren't an extraordinary brand, but certainly dependable. One of the ones I can count on. If you like a mild smoke that's not overwelming, give these a try.

"As Johnnie Mathis sang; "Wonderful, Wonderful"."
Love this cigar! For the price, I don't think I've smoked a better cigar. I don't understand the people who say it doesn't have any flavor. Sure it's mild, but it's also a great, flavorful smoke. Burn one soon.
