Being somewhat of a Cigar Snob I have to admit Principes are my one machine made guilty pleasure. I love these sticks especially the Natural and Vanilla flavors. They dont have that harsh taste that other machine mades do and smoke/look like handmades and as a matter of fact La Aurora uses the table scraps from their premium handmades as filler for these beauties. At less than a dollar a stick you cant go wrong with these as an everyday smoke.
When I read the reviews for these cigars I was expecting a very good cigar for a cheap price. Unfortunately, that wasn't so. These are decent cigars, but the vanilla taste is very faint, and after getting about halfway through the cigar, the taste is terrible. Not recommended.
These are a great inexpensive cigar. Tastes like a much more expensive smoke. Very pleased with precut, taste, smooth draw, and even burn. Would recommend for the smoker wanting an occasional cigar. Wish they were to have a rum favor also.
I m not a cigar critic by any means but, I know what I like. I bought a box of five of the Principes Corona Red cigars when I was vacationing in the Dominican Republic and thoroughly enjoyed everyone of them. I went searching to buy more after my return home to South Carolina and found the La Aurora Principes Masters Cherry to be touted to taste identical to them through some research. I purchased a box of the La Aurora Principes Masters Cherry cigars and found them to be identical in flavor to the Principes Red s I bought in the Dominican Republic. As far as I am concerned these are great smokes. I ll smoke one for me to relax and wind down my day with in the late evening while setting out on my deck enjoying being outside in the backyard with a good stiff drink.
This is another very good cigar for the price, a little stronger than the blond flavor.
I m A lady and it is a great cigar
One of THEE best inexpensive small cigars ever produced,bar none........Nice , mild small cigar
These cigars are a real surprise for the price. They have an outstanding flavor, they are smooth enough to inhale without getting sick or choking, and, their aroma smells like the greatest cigar on the planet.I rate these cigars higher than some of the most expensive cigar and these are consistently the same. After tasting these for the first time, I could easily say that for $ 0.50 cents per cigar, you could beat any other Cuban or Dominican cigar that you ll pay $10 plus each cigar. They don t have an expensive appearance or wrapper/packaging, but, I have to say they are excellent, they draw nicely, flavor is spot on for a great natural flavor, and, Principe has always had a great flavorful fill based on the Cuban seed mix they use.They are an award winning blend to me that really can t be beaten unless you pay top dollar for a cigar. There is no aftertaste that sucks with these, they taste the same from beginning to end and they somehow stay fresh in a slimline plastic wrapper they come in from the box of 55 cigars. They burn slow and many people comment on the smell of the tobacco. The tobacco has a rich distinct flavor and is definitely one of my favorites now that I tried them. I won t waste my time with other cheap cigars as these easily pass the nice flavors of other stogies. They taste similar to fresh Connecticut cigars that use cuban seed fillers, but, like I said, the same everytime so you certainly buy more! These cigars are precut, which was the only downfall, but, they certainly do not dry up for whatever reason and they do state these are all natural cigars.Gas stations usually sell these for a couple dollars each, so, before you waste your money, come here and find them for $35 a box of 50 when they are on sale!Please let me know what you all think of these. They are very easy to change with a friends expensive cigar , telling them they are way more than they really are. When you tell them they are 50 cent cigars, they definitely won t believe you unless you hand it to them in the package!Enjoy!Marc
Had not smoked for years and a friend was smoking this cigar, the aroma was great. Bought a box smoke 2 a day.
Great small cigars with just a touch of vanilla!
