Give J.C. Newman credit for calling these Factory Throwouts cigars what they are instead of something more enticing like Blender's Best or far-fetched like Sloppy 2nds. Whatever, at little more than $1 apiece, these mild, machine-made cigars are SO cheap you're going to buy them anyway. They're rustic-looking as hell, but the aged Dominican filler and Ecuadorian sun grown wrappers offer you a deliciously smooth and flavorful yard gar in sweet and unsweetened caps. Order your bundle NOW!
Didn t know what to expect. These came as part of a sampler pack, and was pleasantly surprised by the taste! Great draw, slow and even burn. Will definitely order on their own to add to the humidor!
If you hate candela you still might want to try these. Rather moist and somewhat difficult to V-cut but using your upper-body strength will cut clean. Good draw, even burn. Pleasant candela bitterness depending on how fast you smoke it. One interesting anecdotal incident: They turned my Drymistat a shade of green. So what? Bottom line; I ll probably order again. I m already missing them as my morning get-to-work smoke.
Like trying to smoke a stick of wood.
First let me say that my priority in cigars is good burn and draw. I can put up with a mediocre tasting stick if it smokes well. That said, these cigars consistently had very poor burn and about half had bad draw. The taste was okay, but if I can t smoke it, what good does that do me? I see the previous review was good - here s hoping I just got a bad batch. I will allow these are Factory Throwouts; however, there are many other seconds that are far and away better than these.
