A true milder cigar. Compared it to Macanudo Hyde Park and CuAvana. This cigar is the mildest of the the three. Typical sweet Honduran Connecticutt aroma. Even burn. Not a lot of flavor, but some. Would buy a box for a good morning smoke.
Cigar had nice appearance and aroma. Really nice draw. The trouble started when I lit the cigar. Could not keep it from tunneling. Could not keep it lit, either. Was in my humidor for two weeks at optimum humidity. May have just been the occasional dud, but wont chance it when there are so many other great smokes.
... is nicely constructed, smooth tan, almost biege wrapper with a very mild pre light aroma. But it lights easily and evenly and immediately develops a mild, sandy slightly spicey flavor, not complex, but quite pleasant. The first third smoked evenly, growing steadily richer, until the middle third was thick, creamy and rich, almost like a french vanilla ice cream, only without the sweetness and still dry. The last third developed the slightest buzz, but not enough to prevent immediately lighting another!2 2

A friend suggested this cigar to me, and I had reservations. After trying it, I must say it was great, smooth draw, nice ask, and a nice mild flavor. I plan on buying a box to make it my everyday cigar. For the price, and great cigar2 1
This is a great quick smoke. It is mild and smooth.2 2
I m relatively new to cigar smoking so take my review for what it s worth. I got 2 of these as part of best of mild cigars sampler # 13 . I really enjoyed this smoke. Draw and burn were great. Perfectly symmetrical burn the whole way to a 1.5 nub. I started this thing out with about 2 solid inches of white round ash. Draw was a little tight, but I like a tight draw. Construction and consistency are solid. Taste was uneventful, neither impressive or offensive. No after taste to speak of. A little spicy in the middle. I fully intend to buy some 5 packs of the other helix sticks. I d like to try the 550 Maduro and the 652 natural and Maduro.0 0
I was looking for a mild cigar to add to the humidor full of medium strength cigars. After the intial light up, the cigar burned a little harsh and peppery, but after a minute or two it smoothed out nicely with a smooth tasty easy draw. Good smoke, good draw, good ash, good burn. Held up nicely. I enjoyed it all the way to the end.A very good, smooth inexpensive cigar for a daily visit. I recommend it.0 0
A mild cigar that has a good taste of tobacco. Nothing special but none the less not bad for an easy smoke. Draw, burn and construction was good and had no issues.0 0
A lot of hype surrounded this brand upon its release a couple of years ago. Had little to no flavor then and still lacks any depth now. It's like smoking a cotton ball !1 0
I have had the pleasure of trying several lines of Helix. My favorites are the 652 Natural. I have smoked at least 3 boxes and each and every one has been a pleasure. The Helix XP for a Maduro has outstanding burn, consistency and flavor. It does not smoke as a Full Bodied cigar as most. For a shorter smoke the Cylinders and Tubos are simply "Outstanding". Helix has become my evening with coffee outside on the deck "special".0 0
