A bad box. Usually a solid buy. This box (the whole box) would never stay lit. It’s a regular for me as I do enjoy the taste and previous purchases. Hopefully the next gets back to normal.

I have been buying this brand of cigar for a number of years. I am very surprised at the first box in this order is not up to the usual standards. They are constantly having to be relit. This has never happened before. I have smoked about half of the first box and the result is as stated.

The cigars received were VERY DRY & was difficult to revive in Humidor after 10 days & also the construction/draw was tight creating difficult draw. I refuse to puncture with long pick to improve draw. ??? are they machine rolled or hand rolled !

The cigars were very good-but will no longer order from Thompson again because of the Affinion charge. My AE account was just charge 14.95 on 7/6/20 which I will not pay. earlier I was charged and it was reversed. I want nothing to do with Affinion. L. Grayson Montgomery

These are a great every day cigar. I prefer the torpedo shape and even though the size is shorter than most torpedoes, I thoroughly enjoyed them. These embody the quality I've come to expect from Victor Sinclair cigars - superior smokes at a great price.

This is a great every day smoke. Very mellow, slightly sweet flavor. The first one burned a little hot out of the box. However after aging in the humidor for a couple of weeks this turned into a good daily smoke. Fairly good construction and even burn after time in humidor. Definitely well worth the price. Will buy again.

This is a great little cigar that will satisfy a quick light smoke out on the patio or working in the yard. Being a mild cigar it is a little short on flavor at first but gets better as it burns down a little.

I tried these after receiving an email advertising Thompson specials. I thought at the price I couldn't lose. I was right. With the harsh winters around here I was looking for an excellent smoke that wouldn't keep me out in the tundra very long. These were perfect for that. Thanks

While these are not in same class as the Churchill's, they are a good cigar for less then $2 a stick. I've never had a negative smoking experience with Don Rafael. I would buy these again.

While these are by no means bad, they are not all that great either. Flavor is very one dimensional. I get them along with one of the Victor Sinclair samplers I love. I order the sampler for the maduro cigars, as they alone make the sampler a screaming deal. These and the 55 Connecticut's are just bonuses. I tend to like my cigars a bit more full bodied, but these are decent for what they are. Construction seems very decent. Not sure what some of the other guys are having issues with. My guess would be a unmonitored humidor or lack of one altogether. All in all a decent everyday stick if you like mild cigars.

THESE CIGARS (PETIT TORPEDO) ARE A NICE SIZE AND NOT A BAD SMOKE. HOWEVER, THE WRAPPER ON ALL 3 THAT I'VE SMOKED HAS SPLIT. MAYBE THEY HAVE BEEN SITTING AROUND WITHOUT A HUMIDOR SINCE 2004. IN ADDITION TO SPLITING ON THEIR OWN, THE BANDS ARE SO TIGHT THAT THEY TEAR THE WRAPPER WHEN THEY ARE REMOVED.

Not only will I recommend; I already have. I chain smoke cigars; and these are smoe of the best mild smokes that I have enjoyed. Thompson ships quick! I usually recieve my cigars with in a few days. The Don Rafeal has great ash and mild flavor through out the entire cigar. I raerly get a bad burn like less than one in 20 usually do to a bad light and a little cigar trimming corrects the issue. If you like a mild smoke; I would highly reccommend you try this cigar. Sailor Man
