Smooth and flavorful is what you can expect from a Connecticut wrapped cigar from Drew Estate, but the wrench we’re throwing in the mix on their latest blend that you’ll be surprisingly pleased with is the price. Factory Smokes Connecticut is a bundled cigar that comes in at just under two bucks a stick. And no these beauties are not seconds or fumas, they’re nicely constructed cigars crafted to offer the same flavor and consistency from Drew Estate without the high-end price tag. A golden Connecticut Shade wrapper covers Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos bound by an Indonesian binder producing a creamy profile accompanied by notes of cedar, leather, and a hint of pepper. Enjoy the flavorful, everyday Drew Estate’s Factory Smokes Toro Connecticut cigar while saving some money – it’s a win/win for you.

Great cigars at a value price! I have had these cigars in other varieties and have settled on the shade as my favorite. I have found them to burn evenly and to be an enjoyable smoke. I go back and forth between a traditional straight cut, V-cut and punch. These cigars have never failed to produce a steady and even draw regardless of the cut I use. Highly recommended!

Description said 'long filler' but the filler is chopped up and tends to fall out easily. Wrapper is even and smooth, but not very adherent (tends to unravel). Binder is thin. Cigar burns hot of course because of the loose and chopped filler. Taste is mild- nothing interesting- but fine except for burning hot. The description of 'long filler' was completely wrong. If you can't make a decision on information TC provides, why bother reading it? Either be accurate or put nothing.

Flavor is ok, smoke there is plenty, and the draw is great. Cigars aren’t too soft, but the 2nd 3rd I seem to get a rancid taste. It’s almost like a sour bitter taste. Good for the price well constructed not too soft. Thompson delivered fresh, fast, and well packed. May, or may not reorder. We’ll see as I get to the end of the bundle.

The draw is good. Since they are a pack, I found it is best to put them in my humidor for at least three weeks before smoking. The only negative I found is that sometimes the burn is a little uneven.

Bundle of 25 was a great deal cost wise ! The cigars seems to burn well but towards end had relight again twice . The flavor was pretty good , not too strong but not wimpy or weak. Overall , I enjoy each cigar I have smoked and will definitely purchase more of the same to enjoy in the future. !!! Dick C.

Although I am but just over a YEAR of enjoying the STOGIES..I "AM" Honest and will offer the COMMON MAN'S views. I suffer the drawback of being on DISABILITY, but I try to afford what I CAN ONLY afford.The DOMINICAN REPUBLIC 2-FER CHURCHILL'S WERE BETTER than NOT, MAINLY because of unraveling wrappers & the FOOT being SUB-PAR. 45% AVG% of the 40 pk. I "AM" trying to be a PROMOTER of your PRODUCT... BUT I need HELP when possible (lower prices when can).

The taste isn' Bad. BUT the construction is so poor that it doesn't matter. They arrived in bad shape (some split), the wrapper quickly became undone, and since the filler appears not to be long filler but chopped tobacco, the cigars all fell apart. Ridiculous.

This bundle is not worth the money. They are not long fillers and burns terribly. The taste is not good. These bundles will certainly give Drew Estate a bad name. I'm a big fan of Drew Estate but this is below them.
