Very nice everyday smoke
This is a nicely made, flavorful cigar. It comes in a nice box so it is appropriate for occasions, like giveaways to the wedding party. At the price, it's a bargain. They only thing that keeps it from 5 stars is that my toros burn kinda fast. Took one on the golf course and it was only good for a few holes.

Smooth as silk stogie
Simply a great cigar from start to finish, smooth as silk , flavor wonderfully consistent throughout. In my personal book, would rate it as mild side of medium. And don't forget the price range, very affordable. Easily compares to sticks costing two or three times more. I would definitely buy again. Master blender Jose Dominguez delivers once again. Thank you.

Great price cigar when you're smoking 3 or 4 a day. It's nice to find a quality cigar that doesn't break the budget. I'll smoke a couple cigars a day, and 4 or 5 on a day off working in the yard, 3 of these is still less expensive that smoking 1 $10 cigar.

Good mild cigar at a nice price
This is a nice mild cigar for everyday. My cigars came in pretty dry. I tried one and it burned way too hot and harsh. After a couple weeks in the humidor they shaped up to be really good every day mild cigars. I will buy again. They are single dimensional in flavor but I'm ok with that.

These cigars are well made, easy draw, stays light and burns even. I continue to buy these because of their consistency.

Smooth, well-built, and quite pleasant
For an infrequent smoker, it is always best to choose a cigar that is dependably pleasant to spend some time with and displays consistent quality features. This is certainly not a fancy item, but for the money I cannot imagine finding anything better. Furthermore, living in the Caribbean, this cigar responds positively to the ambient humidity levels and temperature. Having just purchased three more boxes (shipped to Florida address), I may buy more for gifts and the coming year.

pretty good sometimes
these toros are a good goof around smoke and a good hand out smoke. out of 20 figure on having 3+-5 that are too firm to smoke. the robustos have a failure rate lately of 7-10 per box of 20. its a good cigar for cheap friends, mild in strength.... could be a 5 star for the price but they would have to pack the tobacco in it properly

Nice inexpensive cigar!
This cigar lights right up, has a great draw, smells good, tastes good, and definitely tastes better than the MonteCristo's that I paid more for....real nice cigar!

Not my cup of tea...
I've had two Vintage 2004 Conn toros sitting in my humidor at 65% for about a year that I got in a combo/sample pack. I just smoked the first one last night. I wasn't hanging onto them for any particular reason other than that they seemed? to be a generic nothing special kind of cigar: and last night was a "nothing special" kind of cigar evening. From the odor I got from a quick light I gave to the foot to the taste of the first puff I knew it was going to be a rough hour or so. My wife immediately complained about the odor, which I knew was not a good sign. The first third of the cigar had a draw that was too firm; giving off an unpleasant odor and taste like a mixture of burning grass clippings and a well used port-a-john on a hot day. The second third was smokeable with a pretty generic mild el-cheapo taste, but the previous odor remained. By the time I got to the last third the cigar became increasingly tannic and toilet-y so I snuffed it after about the third puff. I'm glad I stuck with it because there was a glimpse of par, but I'll probably just chuck the second and never order them; or maybe I'll keep it as an exercise in masochism. Some people seem to love V'04s, and if that's you more power (and cigars) to you!

Not my cup of tea...
I've had two of these from a combo pack sitting in my humidor at 65% for about a year and just got the urge to light it up tonight. As I stated in the title, it wasn't my cup of tea. From the foot through the 1st third it had a cannabis/musty wet grass/chemical toilet on a hot day taste and odor. The second third had a standard el-cheapo mild cigar hay taste. The last third was a mix of the first and second third, becoming more and more acrid and tannic until it became unbearable. The whole cigar was tannic and left a lingering cheap cigar taste in my mouth that has yet to subside hours later. It reminds me a lot of the super cheap floor-sweepings cigars I used to buy when I was young and broke and knew nothing about cigars. Some people seem to like them, but you can do exponentially better for the price, imo.

Cheap Smoke But Reasonably Priced Everyday Cigar
Okay cigar for the price--good smoke for mowing the yard or bush hogging fields on a tractor. Not a cigar to sit down and savor with a good glass of whiskey.

Daily smoker--one each day. Have nothing negative to say as this cigar never disappoints.

I enjoyed these, even burn, good draw, easy to keep lit, mild flavor. Only problem was the wrapper tore a bit, but was probably due to my cutter. I think it's dull and needs to be replaced.

Third box in three months...becoming my "everyday" smoke.
I keep coming back to this as my "go to" cigar when I want natural tobacco flavor. My humidor's full of all types of expensive cigars and I keep grabbing one of these. Just opened my third box in three months. Mild, smooth, well constructed, burns evenly and rarely needs to be relit. A real super deal for the price versus the quality. Everyone who likes a mild cigar should try these....and at the price take a chance and get a box.

My Favorite Golf Partner
I have been enjoying these cigars for years and they never let me down. I only smoke on the golf course and when detailing my cars. My golfing buddies and I enjoy a nice cigar when we tee it up. Even after a bad shot or bad break we can still laugh it off with a great cigar. Very mild smoke and has an even burn when outside in the elements.

Buy it! Great daily smoke.
I bought two boxes for my son's wedding ...not to pass out to everyone but we had a cigar bar set up for anyone who did smoke and there were a dozen or so cigar smokers there. Everyone really thought that this was a really good smoke. They had never heard of it and didn't have a clue about the price but even the guy who is a real aficionado said it was a really good smoke that he'd like to have on hand for daily use ...especially after I told him the price. I've made this my "every other cigar" smoke and keep a box on hand. A friend who was an 8 cigar ($10 each) a day smoker who has since backed off his habit really thought this was a good daily cigar.

A nice cigar for and every day used
So looking at the box it came in. For the cost it's not badly made. As I open the Cigarbox. I noticed that they where individually wrapped. I punch instead of cut the cap did hold. Was a late cigar to enjoy. Did not burn even. Was there in 45 minutes. Overall I still enjoy it

An everyday smoke but the packaging was very poor and cigars were in bad condition. Still bringing them back to life in my humidor.

Cheap and worth every penny
I smoke 1 cigar a week. This is an okay cigar but good for the price. I found a couple of them to have an acidic or chemical taste. Overall, not bad.

2004 Rafeal Vintage CT
When this cigar was first offered a few years ago, I gave it a 5 star review. Now I've downgraded it to 2 stars because some are wrapped too tight (and useless) and many moderately tight. I look forward to finding one in the box that has the great draw that I was use to. Now I looking around for a great priced cigar with a smooth draw.

A Great Anytime Smoke
Let me just say that even though this is a great smoke the bands are a major hassle. They're supposed to either peel off or slide off with ease and they do neither. It ends up either with a couple small holes in the wrapper or tearing off large chunks of it. Aside from that this is one of my favorite cigars. I had some Acid Blondies in the humidor at the same time and they picked up a little bit of the spiciness which was nice. But by themselves they're a relaxing smoke after a long day at work and affordable.
4 out of 5
Very nice, good burning every day cigar.
Great every day smoke for the golf course, on my lawn tractor, or after the kids go to bed.

lousy smokes
Ugly wrappers. Draw is usually fine, but won't stay lit. Smoked about half the box so far. One tasted decent, but the rest have been flavorless. Spend a few more bucks and get something you're not tempted to throw out.
4 out of 5
Good "go-to" smoke!
Comes in nice cedar box, however, do yourselves a service, let these bake in your humidor as long as possible; they just get better and better. Smooth and moderately tasty, good both for work and to relax with a drink. Much better than expected. DEFINITE buy at the price!!!

Very good for the price
This is a good consistent cigar. It is very very mild and one of the best cheap cigars out there. However, don't expect this to be a substitute for more expensive cigars. The DR has an easy draw but the smoke is more like a cigarette than a cigar. But the DR line does use long leaf tobacco in their products which makes it better than their competitors.

This cigar does not fall into the "MILD" category. It's more medium to full and the wrapper is bitter to taste. The description on the website does not give the correct information. Very disappointed.

Go-to economy everyday smoke
Great everyday smoke without breaking the bank. Long fillers mean they won't come apart in your mouth with every draw as other low priced stogies will do. Even burn and mild flavor so everybody like them. The only drawback is the wrapper comes loose on every stogie. Not that big of deal, just annoying. I'll put up with it for the price. These also burn a little quicker than higher priced stogies.

New and Nice
This cigar can be smoked all day long. The pleasant taste and easy draw make it a pleasure to light up. From the first puff to the last, this is a great beginner cigar.

Pleasantly suprised!
I was very pleasantly surprised by these. They are rolled much better than many similarly priced cigars, they burn nice and even and have a great taste to boot. Cant beat the price. I have paid a whole lot more for sticks I like a lot less. Great for new smokers too. I give them to friends, who all enjoy them too.

1 to 10 10 being the best this is 8
Your cigars are pretty good. That is not your problem. Your problem is the left hand does not know what the right is doing. Your staff sometimes cannot find the current sale that is going on online. Also when you buy on line and I buy your sale item it says discount will be done at checkout and it does not happen. I had to call for a adjustment. I was not happy about this. If I was not paying attention I would have over paid. I wonder how many of your customers did not catch this and overpaid. Could have been me
4 out of 5
A great value.
This is a great value for a very consistent, quality cigar for everyday use. Equally enjoyable as a night cap smoke on the patio, or on the golf course. At this price you can easily treat the other members of the foursome to a nice "19th hole" smoke!

Don Rafael Vintage 2004 Toro CT
Very mild cigar, smoke them in the mornings and afternoon. Very well contructed and smokes great!
5 out of 5
Great Buy Get One ASAP!
Once in action, the Don Rafael had a decent burn, the ash was gray and long. The draw was good, and there was more than enough thick smoke. The burn acted a bit fickle at times but no re-light was necessary.
5 out of 5
Good Buy
I have been using these as an everyday smoke during lunch break. Have been through several boxes so far and am very happy with these. I have had the wrapper glued to the ring and tear on one and had one run on me out of around 50 smoked. Will continue to buy these until I can't get them. Best cigar that I have found at this price point.

Worse cigars I have ever bought
I bought a box of these cigars based on the reviews but when I tried the first, I was dumbfounded as to why there were any good reviews. After smoking cigars for 50 years, these have got to be at the top of my DO NOT BUY list. At first, I thought the taste was as a result of the cigars not being in a humidor long enough, but after 5 months in my humidor, they consistently taste as bad as in the begining. The other cigars I bought at the same time (DOMINICAN TORO SAMPLER and A/F VS THE WORLD 10 SAMPLE) were great. I dread picking one of these out to smoke but am determined to finish them. Them seem to burn hot, like they are dry. I do have to give them credit for being consistent though - each one is as bad as the first!
5 out of 5
Don't let the CO$T fool you!!!
This cigar is very impressive coinciding the value, it resembles and has characteristics of big name brands... It's like the Hyundai Sonata of cigars!

I got a super deal on these from Thompson's since the cigars I originally were back ordered twice.

Maybe I just got a bad box..
I hate to give these cigars such a bad review, but the box I got was a nightmare. Not a single stick was smokeable, Wrappers were coming undone, caps were falling off, mold, and the killer of any cigar Tobacco beetles! From all of the other reviews on here, I am 100% sure it was just a bad box that I got, It happens. I just wish I could have at least found one stick that wasn't a total train wreck so I could give them a fair review. I have not contacted Thompson yet, but I am sure as usual they will take care of this.

I do enjoy the flavor of these smokes. Good value. I have smoke about 8 of them so far and 3 have had wrappers come undone (keep the label rings on!) and 2 tunneled. The others smoked evenly with no problems. I like them after a week of work by myself and I have a buddy who really, really likes them and bought these as his first box of cigars.

Mild and Easy to Smoke
Well this is just a very mild smoke. If your looking for a full bodied smoke, this is not it. But they do run consistant flavor thruout. They have a nice even burn, with only slight over burn.There is not harshness what so ever in this one, but is a bit mild on taste ( for Me) I much prefer a medium bodied smoke.

A Value Cigar
This is 3.5 star cigar but I rated it a 4 star because of valuation. I thought the construction & burn were well done. My biggest issue is the number of reviewers rating this a 5 star which you'd think would be reserved for the best of the best at any price. The cost in relationship to product is favorable which is why I gave it 4 stars but find this cigar would never be a 5 star even if it were free. Gentlemen, please pause before you rate.
5 out of 5
Great Cigar!
This cigar is top notch! It burns clean and even, tastes great, and even has a nice after taste. I would highly recommend getting them before they sell out. It's great being close enough to Thompson to drive by their retail shop and pick some up on the way home!

Well Worth The Price
This cigar is great. If you like a mild smoke that won't break the bank Don Rafael is for you. The wrapper is slightly oily that to me adds to the flavor and insures an even burn. The draw is smooth and you can get a nice ash on it. Buy this one you can't go weong

Fantastic Mild Cigar
After sampling cigars for 2 years A to Z i think i have found my go to stick.Always tastes good, never a burn issue,and if you set it down for a later finish it is not bitter tangy or harsh on the re-light like so many others even the more expensive sticks.Having one now. Enjoy
5 out of 5
Trust The Reviews
I took a chance on these and bought a box based on the positive reviews. Typically, a mild cigar means no flavor. Not true with these. A creamy smoke with hints of vanilla and smooth down to the nub! I've smoked several and they all have burned at a slow to moderate rate with no relighting ever required. You can smoke them to the nub without it getting hot or the flavor turning ugly or harsh. The conneticut wrapper stays put and you'll swear you are smoking a cigar that costs five times as much! If you like Mac's or R&J's save your money and try these. If you don't believe me, believe the other 18 reviews below this one!

Awesome every day smoke
I purchased this cigar because it was mild, not expensive and I was looking for an every day smoke. I was extremely sceptical since I haven't been real impressed with Victor Sinclair cigars. I was pleasantly surprised. This cigar is just the right size and it is mild enough to be an every day smoke. It has an even burn and good ash hang. It does tend to burn faster than I would like but its taste is even all the way to the butt.

Buy the product; not the advertising.
I am a knowledgeable cigar smoker who has actually dealt with several "Big Names" in the handmade cigar industry. One of the "biggest names" once correctly remarked that there is often less than 50 cents a stick actual difference in the production costs of an inexpensive cigar and a so called "super premium", boutique cigar that may cost ten times as much as the former. Often the only differences for two such cigars produced in the same factory, on the same day, are cosmetics, the band, and the packaging. The Don Rafael Vintage 2004 is one of the best mild bodied cigars that I have ever encountered. While my personal taste usually runs to heavy, or very heavy, bodied Habanos style cigars, the Don Rafael has always been a well constructed, smooth, mellow, mild bodied smoke that actually tastes and smells like a fine cigar and not one of the cheap cigarettes that looks like a cigar, that became very popular with yuppie cigar newbies during the 1990's cigar boom. Bottom line is that you cannot "go wrong" in selecting this cigar.

will not purchase again
was very dissatisfied with this cigar. did not burn well at all. the end of the cigar is really loose and that is very annoying. to me it just wasn't very good. i used a punch and the draw poker on this cigar and the end ot the cigar was a bad issue. several weeks ago i purchased 2 draw pokers from thompson cigars, one for me and one for a good friend as a gift. the end that you use to draw it back out of the cigar broke on both draw poker tools. i love the product but it isn't built very well. i will have to find a glue to make the end stay on so i can continue to use it. you do have some good deals and some descent prices. i used to shop at a competitor and got some good deals from them also. i recieved follow up calls from your reps and one day i talked to a guy that made me a very good deal on a bundle of 20 Vintage Especielle cigars that were just a great cigar, and the fellow got me hooked up to the club you guys have and the guy said that i will be able to get the very best price offered on that cigar and that i will soon be able to be on a term where i will have them sent to me and have a month to pay the bill, so i said that sounds good and he fixed me up on the plan. your customer service people are awsome and like to try hard to please a customer. they are to be commended. i am going to stay as a customer for now. just wanted you to know that i had a couple bad experiences with the last bundle of cigars i ordered and also on the 2 draw pokers that i ordered. thanks for listening Stan Hendricks

Great value smoke!
Helped a friend by getting a couple of boxes for his daughter's wedding reception. The Don Rafael's were a big hit with regular smokers and rookies as well.

I would buy this product again
This product was recommended by Thompson cigar as a good everyday cigar. It has been that. Good flavor and easy draw are pluses. Has a tendency to burn unevenly and will go out if not puffed regularly

Excellent smoke, well packed, good ring.
Smoke when there's time to enjoy, not to be rushed.

Mellow Smokes
These are decent smokes for the average user. Nice to relax with for the evening. Had good comments about the smell from others. I would recommend these to the one a day smoker.

Great buy
When it is time to relax, I smoke one of these cigars. They are an even draw with no "exercise" needed. I have received many compliments on this cigar. In fact I am getting several boxes for my niece's wedding soon.

Constantly relighting
Flavor is good. Very nice and I was very happy with them, until the first inch is burned then you can't keep them lit. They burn down inside leaving the wrapper. After the first inch I like to smoke them in the garage so I can use my torch for relights instead of wasting my lighter. I was hoping that first cigar was a dud, as happens, but no, they all burn as I described. Waste of money, however, they were not expensive. I can not afford the really good smokes and I stay under $30/bundle. Yes, that amount of money is not going to get me much, but I have found some quite tolerable smokes in my price range and this cigar is not one of them. I would not give one to a friend much less suggest she/he purchase them.

Great Cigar at a Great Price
At [$] a stick I can afford to be generous with my friends, while being proud of quality and flavor of the Cigar. These are very smooth and I can smoke two or three on the golf course without feeling like I have been run over by a Semi-Truck.

Too bad it's a limited production
I was really impressed with this cigar at the price point. My only concern is that I won't be able to get these in the future.

Okay cheapie
You get what you pay for. Decent handmade cheapie. Good construction and some unobtrusive, pleasant flavor. Occasional harshness encountered. If you go through a lot of cigars like I do, you might want to alternate some of these with your $5-7.00 premiums.

Horrible Wrapper
I like inexpensive everday cigars to go along with my better quality weekend cigar selections. This is a cigar that will stay in the bottom of the humidor until I'm desperate for a smoke.

Great smoke for the price!!
Smooth mild flavor...even burn & draw...constructed very well (no splitting/cracking/dryness)...for the money it's a GREAT smoke!! The only drawback i found is that it's a little quicker burning cigar, but for the price i have no problem lighting up another one.

Unexpectedy Great Smoke for Money
I hope they keep offerring these for the same price. Unexpectedly good smoke that burns even.

Great bang for you buck
I was very surprised when I smoked my first cigar, but after a week in the humador I was extremely excited about the aroma, draw and taste of this [$] cigar. I have spent a lot more for a lot less, I am surprised that this cigar is available at such a reasonable price.

You wont be dissapointed
I like a cigar after supper. This cigar is as good as some 90 rated I have smoked, perhaps better than some. Easy to light, great draw, even burn. It coats the pallet with a fine medium flavor. I was shocked to see how good an expensive cigar could be. You should try this one its a winner

GREAT
Funny how a "cheap cigar" can be your favorite. I guess I lucked out. Don Rafael cigars have always been my favorite I owe it to my taste buds for not having an exspensive taste. These did not disapoint, I will be buying another box to store for quite some time.

1 in a sampler lead me back!
Picked up one of these in a sampler pack. Now it's one of my favorite everyday cigars. Easy to light, keeps lit, smooth draw all the way through. Highly recommend this for early cigar smokers like me. A great value for the quality you get!
