I love the gordos. I don’t know if it’s the thickness or the tobacco that makes them smoke so mild but if it’s a great way to spend a half hour with an adult sipping whiskey

I did not realize their condition until I had left on my business trip. My wife packed 10/12 without knowing. I called TC customer service explaining they were hard and dry. See said I could return them but that would have been difficult. The real reason for the call was to let your TEAM know the issue. I have never had an issue with TC.

way too many of the cigars I purchase from Thompson's have draw problems. I lose about 25 percent of all cigars I purchase from this site. I understand that there will, occasionally, be a cigar or two with these problems but the amount I experience with cigars from Thompson's is extreme.

I had only smoked a handful of cigars before trying these out and I had never really enjoyed any of them nor smoked a full one. The cigars I’d had before were dark and had a very strong flavor that wasn’t pleasant (to me anyway, I’m sure they were fine cigars). I tried one of these from my buddy hesitantly but ended up enjoying the smoothness and ordering a box that night. I wish this had been the first cigar I’d been introduced to. Pretty mild flavor, good burn, and easy to smoke. Great for folks just trying to get into cigars like me.

Thompson Cigar company is a rip-off. I used to buy from them years ago. I came back to give them another chance. I bought a humidor, two boxes of cigars and a torch lighter. They sent a broken lighter. I called and they wouldn’t sent me another one but gave me a credit. I called back to order another lighter but they said I had a “coupon” They wouldn’t give me the money back or a new lighter. I spent A LOT of money and they wouldn’t give me a new lighter or let me buy a better one with the credit from the first one. I asked to talk to a supervisor. They said they will call me back. They never did. I would spend my money elsewhere if I were you!!!!
