I ordered a box of the Principe Palmas Naturals just over a month ago, as I had heard about them and saw that they had good reviews. I really wanted to like these, and the first one or two was just like everyone else said, smooth, easy draw, and good flavor. I really enjoyed them. However, after the first couple, they changed. I don t know if I got a bad run , or if the box was old or...what happened? But All the rest that I have smoked after the first couple, which at this point I only have about 15 left, they start off ok when I first light them, but then pretty quickly the mouth end of the cigar clogs up making it impossible to draw. I have to roll the end between my fingers to open it back up again, and I have to do this every few draws. I have also found I have to relight them fairly often as well. On top of this, most times the last half of the cigar gets a very bad bitter flavor too, at which point I usually just give up and put it out. I kept smoking the box, hoping that it was just going to be a few like that, and they would go back to being like the first couple. But so far with only a few left, they are all the same. Like I said, I don t know if I just got a bad run or what happened. When I ordered this box, I also ordered 4 of the Principe Palmas Vanilla, just to try the vanilla flavored ones. I lit one of those up today, and it was great. Had an easy consistent draw the whole way through, the mouth never clogged up, and it had a good smooth flavor throughout the entire cigar. I may try these if I order again, but I m a bit hesitant as I don t want to end up with another whole box of one s like I have. If they had all been like this last Vanilla one, for the price they would be a great cigar to smoke every day.
Great aroma and taste, excellent value!
Machine rolled just like a Dutch Master or Garcia y Vega Game, with an outer leaf wrapped, and an inner paper glued together. Outer leaf thickness is right in between dutch thicker than and Game thinner than . Good even burn, not too much glue used on inner paper. Something to note, this does not have the extra thick paper between the leaf and inner paper on the mouthpiece like a Dutch or a Game.
These cigars have everything I like in a machine made,the burn is always even,the draw is easy,the taste is complex and mild,I keep these on hand at all times.
I enjoy these as my Everyday Smoke Great smell, Good burn, Great price,and Good quality. Went to the factory and learnt about their company and process. Ive bought many of these boxes over the years .
when do you expect to get more in stock
A nice fast smoke, it tastes good, draw is flawless as well as burn and consistency.
These are one of the best machine made cigars I have found. Ordered another box today to take on vacation. The price is good on them also, try them, give them a shot.
The draw is excellent, burn is excellent and no complaints on flavor, a great value
No vanilla flavor, but I liked the taste, very mild smoke with a hint of sweetness. All the 55 box are exactly the same in terms of construction, taste, draw and burn.
