Pretty good deal price wise and the flavor is nice but the downside of the low price is that construction is not very consistent and sometimes you'll find things like stems in the filler or cracks in the wrapper. The other issue is uneven burn in a significant percentage of the cigars. But all in all, for the price, they are a decent buy.

There's just something magical about a Connecticut and coffee. Be prepared to impale them with a screwdriver or pipe-reamer to get the draw where you want it. They taste and burn as well as other cigars that cost much more, making them an ideal choice for everyday use.

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.

This is certainly the cheapest cigar I've had and it shows as it burns like a cigarette with its super short filler. For the price did you expect quality. On the good side, the cigar had a decent flavor with a mildly sweet taste left on the lips. Certainly not bad for the price. The wrapper may have some issues as it is the delicate Connecticut wrapper, so don't hold that against it. Ashes will fall at will due to the short scrap/cheap filler so do not smoke over nice clothes or in the car/boat.

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.

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.

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
