Been ordering these for years and until recently were readily available. Thankfully they have become available again, but at a somewhat higher price. ''m not a smoker but enjoy chewing on these on occasion. They are a good natural unsweetened chew, occasionally on the dry side, but this recent box were perfect.

OK for a short light smoke I guess...but I made a mistake ordering them because I thought they would be dark maduros. Thanks for contacting me. I've smoked most of them already because I didn't feel like the hassle of returning them for an exchange. Perhaps you can send me a free sampler to console me. In any case stay healthy. RP

Good smoke but not great. What bothers me is how Thompsons gives you this great price then adds on a crazy delivery price and then a exsize tax and last the regular tax.......it adds up to an extra 20.00 on the cigar bill. The exsize tax changes from bill to bill. Just put on paper what it cost upfront and dont play games.

They seem dried out and don't burn correctly.I set up my humidor the day before with distilled water and put the jell pack in and when smoking ,the ends hollow out and then have uneven burn at the tip.The flavor is ok but the outer leaf starts to unravel.The first box I got was the conn. but some of them burned just like my last order which are the church hills.I not they are not premium cigars or they would be more costly, but I didn't expect them to burn so poorly.

Taste is smooth, and burn is great until about 3/4 way down. At that point might go out a few times because the tobacco is getting hard, sometimes where you have to roll between your fingers to break it up. The burn is pretty even , again till the end.

I read reviews and the ran the gamut. I am on a budget but do not want to buy cheap bad cigars and waste what should be a good hour. Did I detect subtle hints of gefilte fish, an after hour gambling casino, a sit with The Queen? No. But it has a great draw, beautiful ash, a mild subtle woody flavor that I so like in Connecticut wrappers. This is based on one smoke out of the box. I am well pleased and may buy another box this week as reserve.

What a great deal from Thompson on these 2004 robustos on a special invitation email sale at $ 22.50 a box. They are well worth the regular price at under 2 bucks. Its a good cigar. Has a nice wrapper. The only problem was they went glue crazy with the label and it teared the wrapper slightly when I removed it. The cigar is well rolled with a slow cool even burn. Mild to medium body and smooth. Tastes of toasty bread and nuts. Has a nice finish and pleasant aftertaste. I bought 3 boxes and will buy more. Subscribe to Thompson email to keep up on their sales and special offers.

good day My experience with Don Rafael Vintage 2004 Robusto Connecticut, has been one of the best I've had in my experience of cigars that certainly is not much, but its flavor and body, is something unique, for me the flavor that leaves the combination Don Rafael and a good coffee are censuses that my palate did not know, sometimes I also taste it with a shot of whiskey, which leave flavors that do not cook on my palate, specifically Don Rafael Vintage 2004 Robusto Connecticut, is a cigar that I recommend it for those who like soft flavors per intense.

These come close in quality compared to Ashton or Montecristo ... at a fraction of the price. Very nice flavors of nuts and toasted bread with hints of cocoa and a slight natural sweetness. Well rolled and burned slow, cool and even. Has a silky smooth texture which l really like. Affordable for everyday and I give them to mooching friends and relatives. And Thompson puts them on sale occasionally but the everyday price is still fair.

I find something I like and then compare it to others, thinking that the new choice may become what I am really looking for. This is especially the case with this cigar, thinking that the price is simply too low for it to be one of my top picks. But each time I compare it to a higher priced cigar, I always prefer the Don Rafael 2004 (Toro, as size does matter). So, while I have encountered others I also like, none have a comparable value for the quality. And, I must add that I am in the Caribbean and keep my cigars in a tropical wood box, that with the constant (ambient) 65-75% humidity, seems to favor the Dominican leaf.

This cigar is smooth and at a great daily smoker pricepoint. However, sometimes one of the cigars will have harsh flavors that wrap the tongue with yuck. Most times though it is a smooth, easy draw that has smooth, rich flavors and is highly enjoyable.

have been buying these for years but the last 6-8 boxes have all had draw issues. i can handle 2 or three out of 20 but now its more like 10-12 which are wrapped way to tight, and that doubles the cost plus its very frustrating. when their good their ok but when their bad they are worthless and 2 dollar cigar goes to 4 dollars. if they dont fix the problem i might as well spend more and get a usable box of 20. too bad they used to be my favorite bum around cigar. cant hand them out anymore and cant recommend them.

Don't order: Quesada Factory Overruns, #J48855. These are the worse cigars I ever ordered from Thompson. Had to use the poker on 23 of 25. Terribly hard draw. Terribly uneven burn. Constantly had to relight. They shouldn't charge for these. They shouldn't even give them away! Too bad because the few I was able to smoke were good.

Let them are for a week with no cellophane on them..smoked about 5 out of a box. All in all good all around stick for price point purschased....flavor starts out very mild 1/3 through you can taste the wood and pepper more and the smooth cream on the tip of palette, no touch ups..1/2 through the ousides of the younger are blessed by the rich tobacco and pepper more and stays, on that plane the rest of the way down to the nub....i like Nicaragua tobacco....but tried these out glad I did now I know what a decent domican long leaf taste like.....if you don't mind a little work to smoke your cigar this is a keeper...

About one third of the cigars are too firm to smoke and have to throw them in the trash. I switched to robusto from toro in the hopes that most if not all cigars would be satisfactory. I cannot understand why these cigars get 4 to 5 stars when I consistently get junk. I tried and tried these cigars all summer and will not buy them any more. I'll have to find another source of supplyf

I'll smoke a churchill in the car or at the end of the day with some scotch or bourban. I like the heft, ring size, mild flavor and price. But it can be difficult to light with matches alone and the filler tends to burn more quickly than the wrapper leading to an uneven burn and hot smoke the last third of the cigar.

I purchased this product some years ago and was disappointed with its draw, difficulty staying lit and uneven burning. The company has hugely improved its product. I have smoked some so-called every day cigars and they are no match for product. Having said that, taste is paramount and this one competes well with the more expensive SBK products.

My buddy and I spent over a year finding a good inexpensive cigar. Trust me the quest was difficult. Don Rafael was my hands down winner. I'm a Rocky Patel and Alec Bradley guy but I just can't afford to smoke these everyday thus my quest for an everyday smoke. Don Raffy was the hands down winner. Easy smoke and most importantly to me, no after taste, when I'm done with this smoke I'm done with it, it doesn't stay with you! I like to let mine sit in the humidor for a month or two, the longer they sit the smoother they are. Mild as Mild can be!

For the price, this long filler cigar can't be beat. I've ordered several boxes over the past few months and can't find any real flaws. Definitely a great smoke and because it's a long filler (not a 'combo filler' like so many low priced cigars), you're not spitting out small bits. Real Cigar for a small price. This is best buy!
