"Not so bad for everyday smoke"
Of course, everyone wants to know Ugly Coyote compare to Backwoods. Well, they're close.
First off, the construction. It is better than Backwoods. The cheroot is thicker, with one end cleanly chopped off, and another left "au naturale".
The draw is ok. No better an no worse than Backwoods. I only had to correct the burn once.
Taste-wise, the cigar is stronger. This is not your mild, gentle Backwoods. This is a stronger, potent cigar, albeit in a form of a tiny cheroot. If smoking on an empty stomach, this can actually take you for a ride.
Overall, yes, I'd buy them again. But, I won't stop buying Backwoods in favor of Ugly Coyote. They're simply that much different.

"Ugly is Right!"
I worked in a store that sold Backwoods when they first came out (those many moons ago) and these are reminiscent of those when they were worth smoking. Sweet on the lips to the very end and mild throughout. Not an everyday thing but nice to have on the patio in front of the firepit after a cookout while watching the stars to feel all outdoorsy and stuff. ;)

Well it was pleasant but not the best of Ugly Coyote!

"Still my everyday smoke after 4 years"
Hard to believe its been 4 years since these came out and I smoked my first 'Yote, but here I am 4 years later and they are still my favorite every day smoke. Great flavor with just a hint of sweetness, not put you in a diabetic coma sweet like Backwoods. I have never had a draw issue like some reviewers because I don't expect a 32 ring cigar to draw like a 50 ring cigar. Plus at the great Famous price, I can smoke 3-4 daily without breakin' the bank. I can throw a pouch in my truck, leave one in the garage and I'm good to go for the day.
I hope 4 years from now I'm still smokin' my 'Yotes because they have become one of my favorite cigars!!

"Great cigar for the money"
These are great little cigars! Great quality for the money and much better than Backwoods. I used to smoke Swisher Outlaws and these are very similar and much less in price,about
$0.40 per stick when you buy the $10 test flight offer per each 39.99 box purchased. Long term fan here!

"great for .50¢"
For .50¢ absolutely great, decent flavor not the best out there. Compared to bwoods coyotes are milder and IMO more true to a cigar in flavor and actual smell of the tobacco. Smell inside package of bwood you get sweet scent, coyotes smell like cigars, but still taste good and sweet. Also last much longer than bwood with bigger ring size. All in all NOT a high end cigar, but damn good for the ¢¢!! Try em!

For roughly .50 cents a stick (including shipping) it is really tough to beat these. Better than some cigars I have had at 10 times the price...I don't know what some people expected for .50 cents, but these have exceeded my expectations.

"Good Evening Smoke, But Not Perfect"
I liked these. They are pretty cheap, but they are certainly not top shelf. Nobody ever claimed they were Cuban Cohibas, but the draw was a little tight and the burn was a little harsh. However, they are cheap and can serve as an easy weekend smoke. Overall, I recommend them, but don't get your hopes too high.
