NEW from the makers of Astral and Helix cigars, Soledad Churchill cigars are also handmade in Honduras. Soledad Churchill cigars offer a mild and creamy-smooth smoke blended with earthy Honduran & Nicaraguan tobaccos. The Ecuadorian Connecticut wrappers are aromatic, silky to the touch and have an oily, golden patina. The filler is packed evenly and the cigars burn cleanly with a firm ash. Try a bundle and taste for yourself. Great for everyday at a nice LOW price.
These are simply the best cigars for the money I have ordered in years. Great tasting. Great burning. A deal at this price.
I rarely write reviews anymore because most of them ever get published no matter how hard I work on them. With that said, back to the Soledad cigars. You or should I say I would never expect too much of a cigar under a buck a piece. Soledad cigars really caught me by surprise. When I got my first bundle I opened the pack and went through my ritual and smoked the dark beauty. I love Maduro and Oscuro wrappers. The description on FC says the wrappers are Maduro but they could easily be passed off as Oscuro. There is a hearty earthy aroma that tells you you re about to smoke a FULL bodied cigar and that it is. For me the stronger the better. I m now on my fifth bundle and to my surprise again I only have seen maybe a 5% defect. They really taste great and burn even from foot to head. The binder and wrapper are very sturdy and I haven t had a single one break apart or unravel. I find this cigar to go great after a hearty meal with lots of steak and potatoes. A dry red wine is my beverage of choice when I smoke these cigars. These cigars could easily go for $5.00 apiece. The size is perfect when you have time to sit and savor the flavor. I also found its twin brother in Conuco cigars. If you took the cigar bands off you couldn t tell the difference. I keep plenty of these rich inexpensive cigars to be far beyond my expectations. Don t tell too many people about this little gem as I don t want them to end up backordered and have the price go up where it should be.
I bought a bundle sampler pack of 20. The Soledad Churchill was one of them. There were 2. I liked them so much I made them my regular smoke. I enjoy the taste, they are smooth and burn well. They have a nice smooth full taste. They taste great free hand. Great working smoke. Try them.
These are quite tasty for the price. The burn seems to be a problem though. I bought the 20 pack bundle and have smoked 5 or 6 of these. About half way through, the cigar starts to draw quite hard, and constantly goes out after sitting for only a minute or two. I had one of these in a previous sampler bundle, and it seemed to be fine, so maybe just a bad batch. I ll suffer through these to see if they get any better.
