La Paloma Vintage Reserva Lonsdale Connecticut (6" x 46) are a premium smooth cigar that makes a mellow and satisfying smoking experience. La Paloma Vintage Reserva cigars are smooth cigars that would hold a treasured spot in any humidor. The meaning of the word “La Paloma” in Spanish is “dove” and this peaceful word reflects the easy-going, top-shelf experience that comes from enjoying one of these smokes. La Paloma cigars turned into a hit shortly after they first became available despite being sold for a much higher price than the ones available today. These quality cigars can now be had for a bargain because the choice tobacco used in the making of these treasures has finally matured and become more available. As a result, the price is lower while the quality smoking experience stays premium. The select Dominican tobacco in this Lonsdale results in wonderful, complex flavors while the silky American Connecticut wrapper gives it mellow character that goes very well with waking up to a beautiful sunrise on the beach or enjoying a gourmet cup of coffee.

mild to medium, well constructed, even smoke and good flavor ... hard to beat the price for a premium hand rolled cigar of this quality if you are not a full bodied smoker

I realize that Thompson has many "house brand" cigars, but La Paloma Connecticut cigars are truly Top Shelf! I can only hope that Thompson keeps these cigars in production. I prefer them over any top brand!

Has a good draw a very smooth smoke. Burns light and last long with a good brandy or glass of Italian wine. I prefer a fine red or white lightly sweet.

I purchased the short Perfecto in CT wrapper and found it medium in body with okay flavor. Didn't see them offered in current listing so apparently they've been discontinued--or not. (Very few cigar makers seem to offer smallish to medium-sized cigars any more. C'est bien dommage!) Considered them to be a less than special brand but a fairly good smoke for the price.

Good smoke for me as a new smoker with an average budget. Going to invest in a Draw Poker as some in this box were tough to draw. Looking forward to learning more and trying more samplers!

I am usually satisfied with the La Palomas, but this box contained some duds. They didn't draw well, burned unevenly, and wouldn't stay lit. Well below Thompson's usual standards.

OK, 2 stars- BUT!!!!! understand that my hummi's are filled w/ Tempus, Oliva V series Melano/figardo, Perdomo Anniversary/Champagne, Flor de las Antillas, La Aroma De Cuba Mi Amore, Padron Ann., Casa Rustica, R.P. Decade's and so on,,,These are the 4-5 star cigs. So don't take the 2 stars hard here. Note, this smoke was aged for 3+months before smoking. they are $2 cigars, they need a bit of aging time to bring them around, so unless you plan on giving these some time, your tastes and experience will not be the same as mine.At least I think these have some value to take space up for the aging. Onto the smoke, very mild, easy light, Perfect burn- no touch up needed. Smooth/light flavors. Hints of cocoa thru the smoke building up towards the end. NO bitterness, draw very nice. Overall, not bad, but prefer the La Paloma Vintage Reserva No. 1 Maduro Perfecto. Bit more flavor. Also try the Nica libre 1990 box pressed for ~ same $, also light/mild inexpensive cig- AGE it too!!!!!

I normally smoke Warlock. I had to buy this for a customer of mine he loves them. I gave some to other fellows I work with they seamed to ask for more! It's a great smoke because the woman in my life didn't complain. I do prefer a maduro smoke it was to light for my pallet. Also a great buy!

This was suggested to me based on what I like and these are less than half and just as good so I can afford to smoke them daily. An added thing is the aroma I smoke in bars often and no one ever complains about mine. everyone I have given one too bought a box.

Cigar has too soft/mushy (rolled loose) feel and that is why cigar splits. Burns quick and uneven because it is rolled loose. Needs help. Roll it tighter and you might have something there.

This is just my opinoin. The cigar is a decent smoke. However, cigar has too spongy-mushy of a feel (loosely rolled), burns fast and can split easy on occasion. Also, it has a slightly bad aftertaste. With better construction (a tighter roll), this cigar would be a winner. As-is it's a runner-up.

For the money, this is the best buy I have found. Mild flavor with a rich aroma. I have paid three times more for other brands and this is absolutely an incredible cigar for the money. I will reorder.

There are occassions where the burn is lopsided and there is a huge hole in the center. the uneven burn gets to be troublesome and heats up the cigar wrapper causing it to dismantle. But not all the cigars are like that,and the good ones are enjoyable.

Decent cigar. Pleasant aroma. A mild enjoyable smoke. However, it burns fast and sometimes uneven. It has a too spongy-mushy like feel. It can split easily. In my opinion, they're trying to make the cigar out to be something it's not (a big dollar smoke). Starting to cost more than they're worth.
