Terrible burn. Draws ok until burn runs. Awful taste, mixture of barnyard and molten metal. Leaves a barnyard/burnt peppermint aftertaste. Yuk!!

The draw is great from it being 60” ring gauge. Smoke is great lots of smoke until the final third for me. Burns evenly, thin wrapper and binder so be careful and take your time smoking. You will love it.

As a daily utility cigar, this beauty us one that should be in every humidor. It has a good taste and Burns well and usually evenly. It has adequate smoke that is pleasing that dissipate adequately. Properly smoked, this baby can stretch your morning coffee into a two hour session. If you set it down to do a chore or two, it relights nicely. I am most happy that this Drew Estate offering is sold at a very nice price point.

Thompson is the only place at the time of this review that sells the Candela (Green) Factory Smokes. It burns great, smokes great with excellent draw and very consistent. Best under $2 smoke that you'll find and that goes for all the Factory Smokes line up.

Decent flavor but poorly made. The wrapper comes undone and the loose tobacco consistently comes loose in my mouth. I am very disappointed.

I ordered these cigars online. Only a partial address was printed on the shipping label. Our Post Office sent them back. When I called the young lady continued to tell me that was the address I gave. I asked for a supervisor, and she hung up on me. I called back again and got a very helpful young man who agreed the address label was incorrect and reshipped the cigars. BTW I waited on hold a total of 1 1/2 hours total to resolve this issue.

The candela leaf is tasty, but delicate. The tobacco is packed with small scrap cuttings from more expensive sticks. Since a 6 X 60 burns for a considerable time, care must be taken to keep the end intact, otherwise you can easily get a mouthful of tobacco bits. That is the primary reason these smokes are affordable. Other than that they burn well and taste like something costing more. There is a contrast in the taste of the Candela leaf vs the filler leaf that makes it an interesting rotational smoke, but it is by no means a finger burner. If your playing golf it will last most of the game or walking the dog for 2 to 3 miles. I have had factory smokes in all available wrappers. This is not my favorite, but it is an interesting change in taste from the traditional flavors. When I was younger, I refused to smoke Candela because it reminded me of heaving on a Jamaican beach after smoking a green fake Cohiba purchased from a beach vendor.

I like candellas so l was excited to find this new offering. And l admit this is a pretty tasty cigar. But of the hundreds of stoggies l have smoked over the years these are the WORST about burning down one side. I bought 2 bundles, different ring guages, and both of them, vertually every stick, canoed.

Average at best. I had much higher expectations - probably because I like the Maduro. These didn't burn evenly and flavor was very bland.

Basically what I expected (and maybe a bit better) from a "value" cigar. Not thrilled with the smell, but the draw was fine, and certainly mild.

I usually smoke something much stronger, but I consider these Kind of cigars an occasional treat as a change of pace. They have an exceptionally smooth draw.
