Pinar Del Rio Value Bundle combines double fermented Dominican mixed fillers with a Dominican binder and a Connecticut wrapper to create a smoke worthy of a fancy box, but frugally wrapped in 25 count bundles and sell for a fraction of what they're really worth.

Unraveled quickly (even after days in the humidor), hard to keep lit and got harsher the more I lit them. Would not purchase again or recommend.

These PDR VLR cigars have become part of my daily routine. If available, I have a Connecticut torpedo with morning coffee and a Cameroon torpedo when I come home from work. When torpedoes are unavailable, I substitute toros, which is why I'm reviewing these today. Dollar for dollar, these are the best everyday smokes I've tried so far, and I plan to continue ordering PDR VLR.

I like to start the day with a mild cigar that pairs well with coffee. These definitely fit the bill. Get ready for a pleasant, creamy smoke which suggests vanilla and cinnamon to me. I also enjoy the slow, even burn. You will probably also love the price.

I try to keep this cigar at the ready at all times. A pleasant aroma according to my wife, pleasantly mild flavor, and well-constructed. This is a great value for the price with a full 25-cigar bundle. Because of this, I've explored costlier PDR lines, and find PDR to be a quality label. I can afford to smoke one of these VLR cigars every day.

I've been an occasional smoker for a few decades and recently took advantage of a Thompson special that contained a Connecticut. I was pleasantly surprised by the tasty flavor and mildness for price. I would be comfortable sharing or giving to friends, definitely on the list for my next order.

I understand this is a less than $1.50 a stick, but I have had better cigars from a convience store. It had a serious uneven burn and I got a headache getting it to draw.

I like to keep these on hand now that I've smoked a few bundles. They benefit greatly with aging in the humidifier. For me, three to four weeks minimum results in a smooth and consistently enjoyable smoke.

At first I was amazed on the price of the bundle. It was a bit hard to light.The flavor was not impressive. I actually did not smoke the entire stick in some occasions. I usually leave a little less than a 1/4 of it.This is how I knew it was a respectable cigar, but not the kind you take to classy events or share with more seasoned smokers. I like it very much as an everyday cigar and will buy more and save my good ones for the special occasions.

The PDR Value Line Reserve works well for a cigar to puff on while playing a round of golf but this would definitely not be my cigar of choice for an evening out on the town or special occasion. But, hey, what do you expect for a couple of bucks!

PDR VLR Connecticut Review: The PDR VLR Connecticut is a very smooth/mild every day cigar. But from the first 15- smoked (bundle of 25- purchased) 4- have been hard as a rock with little or no draw and next to impossible to enjoy. So thus far 27% of my purchase has been disappointing while 73% has been enjoyable.

I use these as an everyday smoke. They have good flavor, a decent draw, and good body. The only real negative I can give is the tendency of some sticks to come undone up by the tip. Otherwise, this is a good, solid smoke that I would recommend without hesitation.

Unfortunately the taste/flavor did not match the description. I had purchased 5 cent cigar bundles from Thompson that had better flavor. They were not mild and actually had a tinny aftertaste. This is the first time I had to return a cigar.

Bought the toro natural. Barely worth half as much. They are short filler [*] cigars with overly fragile wrappers that shed chunks of tobbacco into your mouth as you smoke it. Some cheap cigars are better than others. This is one of the others.

I've smoked 5 of these so far. After a lot of years of cigar smoking this was my first (and probably last) short filler buy. All of the other PDR cigars I've smoked were very good, so I decided to give them a try. These cigars have a nice aroma when burning, light, draw, and for the most part taste OK, but... All five burned very unevenly, needing constant attention. All five also had the additional "Connecticut" band glued to the wrapper, which was damaged upon removal. I think the "floor sweepings" mantel put on short filler cigars may have some validity here. I found a small pebble in the second one I smoked when I was getting ready to light it. I'm glad it was visible. I also found what appeared to be a large dried piece of the end of a leaf stem in another when I clipped the cap. Pulling it out caused a bit of damage, so I clipped off another 1/2 inch and it was OK after that. There were spots of harshness that lasted a puff or two, but didn't stay, and in every case there was a deep pit left in the ash where it occurred. I probably should have returned them but it's not worth the postage and hassle.

I was looking for a bundle of cheap cigars for an every day smoke, so I decided to give these a try. As mentioned in other reviews, these are very mild. Almost too mild. They really aren't bad for an every day smoke and much better than others in the same price range. They are packed firm, smoke for a good amount of time and burned evenly with no problems. For the price I really can't complain and would recomend these as a descent cheap smoke.

I ordered this bargain expecting lackluster quality, a hard draw, or poor taste; to my delight none fo this was true! I have been burned (pardon the pun) on cheap cigars in the past but this one is a keeper. Its not spicy or extravagant but it is a solidly built smoke with a mild flavor good for any time. This has become my go to smoke for poker with the boys
