The La Paloma Vintage Reserva Churchill Connecticut (7 1/2" x 50) is a premium cigar that produces a wonderful, long-lasting, silky smooth experience. The word “La Paloma” means “dove” in Spanish and reflects the easy-going, peaceful smoke generated by the La Paloma Vintage Reserva series of cigars. The high quality of La Paloma cigars turned them into a popular brand of cigars soon after reaching the market even though they cost much more than they do at present times. The current lower price of these excellent cigars stems from the fact that more of the high quality tobaccos used in the Vintage Reserva series have matured and are thus more available than in the past. This is great news for the aficionado because it results in more high quality cigars for lower prices. The select Dominican tobaccos in this excellent Churchill deliver a pleasant, long-lasting smoke that gets topped off by a gorgeous, wonderfully smooth American Connecticut wrapper.

I've been ordering cigars from Thompson since 1973. You do the math. I have tried other cigar companies, but always come back to Thompson. Over the years, I tried many different cigar brands, but I have settled on La Paloma as one of my my top smokes. It is consistent. It is just what I like and every time I open a box, all of the cigars are wrapped consistently. That's why I keep ordering them.

So I play tons of golf with a group of guys who smoke. They only smoke inexpensive cigars since they smoke 3-5 per round of 18 holes of golf. I used to smoke the high end cigars but could only enjoy 1 or 2 per round which still costs a lot of money at the end of the day. So to make a long story even longer than needed... I started exploring with cigars that cost under $3 in order to smoke more in a day along with pass them out to others to experience. I decided to give the La Paloma cigars a try and man was it worth it. Every person I handed one of these to said they were excellent and had no bad comments about it. Once in a while you will get some that don't draw right or burn from the inside causing a bad draw... But that can happen to any cigar. The bottom line is that this cigar on a scale of 1-10 would rate in the 7/8 range by all means. I have a total of about (5) other brands that I recommend under $3 so between the La Paloma and other 4 brands... I have a nice rotation of great bargain cigars that I enjoy just as much as the $10+ brand name cigars that are out there. I hope this helps anyone on the fence post about trying them.

Everyday cigar for golf or fishing. Good to smoke if you want a simple smoke to drink with a beer. Simple straight forward flavor. Mild to Medium strength. Pick ups with strength and spice in the middle section then goes back to mild. Lacked some of the smoothness and creaminess expected in a mild blend. Some aging would help. I have smoked them from 2 weeks after getting to 8 weeks and they have smoothed some in that time. Fair deal for the price I got on sale.

Bought a box of these "deal of the day" smokes on impulse, as I had not tried them before...not what I expected. Perhaps a personal taste issue, but these were a fairly bland/average smoke to me. They are not bad by any means, but I expected more for the relatively high price. If smoke with minimal flavor is your game, you might like these.

I first bought Thompson's when I was in Service living in Florida. Then in 1960's I ordered regularly. I didn't smoke for a long time, then reordered when I retired. Never smoked cigarettes. Cigars are easier than a pipe. Non-smokers like pipe smoke better however.

The flavor starts off a little uneventful, develops some character, but ends about the same as it started. It was well constructed, kept a long ash and had a consistent burn. I received this in a sampler package and believe you might be able to find something with more character for the same price. It is not the worst I smoked and not the best.

I likek to sit outside and enjoy a nice cigar usually completmenting a drink. These cigars were fresh, good draw, however very disappointing flavor. I've had mild cigars with a good flavor before, but this one tasted like I was smoking an oversized cigarette. Based on the description of the cigar I did not think it was even close. These were not worth even the discounted price.

Most cigar purchases were great. Some of the cigars were not rolled very well and would begin to unroll approximately one-half the length of the cigar. And, some of the cigars did not have the full leaf pieces as designated, not broken filler pieces.
