Wrapper stays on even after burning, turns off after several puff, needs constant re-lighting. Very bad cigar.

The first thing I noticed was the wrapper flaking off, when I went to cut the end it fell apart, easy to light because it's not wrapped tight, a quick burn. I would be embarrassed to give one of these to a friend, I'll reserve these for munchers.

Shared these cigars with friends at work. They all enjoyed them. We would cut them in 1/2 for that nice little smoke break. Would definitely buy them again.

Easy to light but keeping it lit was something else and to get it to burn even that happened once out of twenty cigars. I will NEVER order these again!

I would call this vitola a Panatela, or maybe a Lonsdale, and the first I've ever even seen from the Philippines, but 20 smokes in a box for $20 definitely piques my interest, and right outa the box I have to say, this is pretty darn good. I'm not one those guys who thinks mixed filler - aka "Cuban Sandwich" - smokes are beneath me. My exposure to them is somewhat limited, but I may actually prefer this type, bc this 1898 is terrific! I've read that mixed filler burns faster and therefore hotter, and that may well be true in some cases, but both this and the others I've had were certainly not hot burns. And I think the mix might actually help a stick burn more evenly. This 1898 certainly hits all my buttons: mild-to-medium bodied, good draw, even burn, nice cherry, smooth pleasant flavour, attractive band art (yeah I know ya don't smoke the band), and really cheap! I got free shipping on these from Thompson, bc they do that every now and then, so if you can be patient and wait for those promotions to come along then those are perfect times to try out something new, and I'm very happy with this one. I'll be getting more of these 1898s in the future. I've already recommended them to several friends. I think I'll try the Robustos nexr.

I was looking for a mild value cigar. Usually smoke Gispert and Macanudo. I enjoy a cigar on a lazy afternoon with a glass of bourbon. The flavor on these are good and mild but several per box were wrapped a little tight and had a stiff draw. I have bought a couple sizes of this cigar and will definitely buy again despite the issues.

this cigar is a good smoke, but does not burn correctly. keep a lighter on hand to keep it burning evenly.

These cigars are just terrible. Either they won't stay lit or they burn up the side. I sent more time trying to get them to burn correctly than I did enjoying them. Stay away.

Very disappointed. Wrappers were loose. Over two thirds of the cigars had insect/worms holes. Some of the cigars had such bad insect damage that I had to throw them away. Others I tossed over half the cigar. DO NOT BUY THESE CIGARS.

I took a chance on it because it was on sale and was very surprised. This is a great tasting cigar for the price. I will buy again once I'm out.

You needed a vaccum cleaner to get a good draw. It would not stay lit.

New to Thompson. Looked at catalog and ordered 2 different cigars. The 1898's did not impress me at all. I realize a "cheap" cigar, is a cheap cigar. That is exactly what they tasted like. They are on par with any drug-store brand which I stopped smoking 20 years ago.

I didn't have Hi hopes for this cigar. I was just looking to find a nice smoking cigar that wasn't bigger than my mouth and didn't make me rethink smoking a cigar.I am kinda new to smoking cigars and not many people around me do smoke.So I said let's give this a try it was fairly affordable. Man was I totally surprised. I got the nice box with each cigar individually wraped The cigar was about as big around as a dime and as long as a dollar bill.The taste was well enjoyed with it's easy lighting and even constant burn.I think it is a very nice cigar with the ability to never disapoint.

Very inconsistent in quality. The band is just about 1/3 the length of the cigar, can only smoke about 2/3's of the cigar. Very loosely packed. Probably will not purchase again.

I have both of these. However, I especially love my 1898 Independencias. Philippine made, mild and smell good. Both are good with different tastes and mild. No strong stinky bad smells.
