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.
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
Great small cigars with just a touch of vanilla!
If you prefer a smaller cigar, this is it. Great taste and priced right.
Overall my favorite cigar. I love them.
Marc did a fine job laying it out. Cannot do better than he. I ve not the pallet to talk about cedar and vanilla undertones type biz, just they are delicious to me. I ve tried heavy hitters, but honestly I prefer these.
Foil wrapped. Mild. These aways have an extremely easy draw. I ve had box after box of these, and have never had constructon issues on any of them. These are not some flimsy, loosely packed, lightweight cigar. They will not unravel. You will burn your fingers before that could happen. A very fruity cherry flavor. But what kind of cherry flavor? If you ever had cherry lipstick candy, the old fashioned one from over 40 years ago, well you can t buy that candy anymore, but you can enjoy these cigars. These stay cool all the way down.Perhaps one day, La Aurora will make these in cappuccino flavor. Five stars.
This is a wonderful cigar in the price range of $0.50 cents to $0.75 cents a pop. I get so many comments on the smell, as well, when I share a cigar with a friend, they can t believe the flavor and smoothness for the cost. If you like a strong bite from the smoke, you will not prefer these, but, you probably would enjoy the wonderful flavor.This cigar is exactly the same from batch to batch and they have the most flavorful filler that always pleases. I really can t believe how sweet and tasty the tobacco really is. It s unusual for a cigar that even costs $20 each to have anything close to the flavor of the natural principe cigar line.I ve even enjoyed a few of the flavored Principes including the chocolate blend, and, I do not usually enjoy flavored cigars as I think it normally ruins the great tobacco flavors quality cigar manufacturers produce.They sell a cigar like this in a CT wrap that I can t remember the name of, but, these cheaper cigars share the same fillers and they are all wonderful. They are a great , tasty cigar every time. I applaud Principe s fine authentic tobacco recipes, and I really don t think there is a match in quality for the price anywhere on the planet.Thanks, and enjoy these wonderful cigars. Principe is really the world s best kept secret for a cigar and I would recommend their more expensive cigars to those who don t care about the price.. They are really a world class tobacco and fine crafted when you spend the extra for the impressive flavors Principe really delivers!!Enjoy!Marc
