RG Santiago Churchill Connecticut cigars are little known premium smokes that provide a seriously top shelf experience. The two men behind the fantastic RG Santiago Connecticut only make limited numbers of this fine cigar and prefer to stay out of the limelight. The result is a very fine smoke with a growing number of fans who would love to keep this secret to themselves. This excellent Churchill is a smooth to medium-bodied smoke that uses a very select blend of premium Honduran and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. The flavors in this fine smoke are rounded off by a creamy, quality, golden Connecticut wrapper. Given the price for these high quality Connecticut Churchills, they just might be one of the best cigar deals around.

Three years ago when I first smoking this cigar, it was one of the best for the price. In fact, I wondered how it was sold so cheap?? Fast forward to the beginning of this year and I tried to order this cigar but it was out of stock. Finally, a couple of months ago, it was restocked. I ordered a box of the maduro wrapped. The first one I smoked was not good and the next four were progressively worse. I sent them back and ordered the connecticut wrapped. The first one I smoked was probably the worst cigar I have had. There is something definitely wrong with this cigar facility. They have gone from one of the best to the worst.

For the price, you cannot beat this cigar. A full 7 inch Churchill that will give you enough time to sip that favorite whiskey, bourbon, or scotch. A satisfying taste and draw. However, once you have moved on to a better brand of cigar at considerably higher price you see that the RG is not as well packed and wrapped as the higher end brands. With the RG you have to watch the ash as it may falloff prematurely and burn your clothes. if you are aware of this you can have it as a nice everyday cigar that won't break the bank!

I have been a loyal Thompson Cigar customer for many years. Most of the products have been very good. But this cigar has to be among the worst ever. Let me be specific: First of all, the leaves begin to unravel very quickly. Secondly, it does not burn evenly. I continually have to cut off the burnt ends. Yesterday I had to discard 3 cigars because of the difficult draw. I have to dispose of them 3/4 of the way after they are lit. The write-up on this cigar is a hoax. Tom should be ashamed to sell this item. He should know better.

I first bought a batch of these maybe 5 years ago when they were like one dollar per stick. They were great daily smokes with maybe 3 out of 100 "throw - aways". Since then the prices have kept going up. When they got to about a buck twenty per stick they did not perform as well. The last 100 batch that I recently bought at a buck and a half per stick are just about impossible to smoke. They burn up the middle, they run up the side, and they are full of stems that make them taste like smoking camel dung. I finally threw them away. I guess you don't have to live in America to be a capitalist pig. I will have to find another daily smoke.

This smoke is a good cigar 96% of the time. I give it four stars, because It generally smokes fine. Faults: From time to time I will get a cigar that burns uneven due to Poor job during the rolling process. Sometimes the center is hollow. Perhaps a little more care should be taken during rolling.

I just got the box today and upon opening it I had to take two or three checks to make sure they weren't the Maduro (which I wouldn't have minded anyways.) However the box clearly says Connecticut. The wrappers are very dark and as someone mentioned earlier when you cut them you need to be very careful. I did have some of the wrapper try to unwind. So I would recommend cutting very high on these or a punch. However they are much softer than I would have liked and unless you have a sharp punch, you may end up just smashing them. The flavor and smell are very mild and pleasing. A bit more mild than I would have expected but a very decent every day smoke. The price was pretty good, and they are much darker in color than one expects a Connecticut to be. Overall decent for the price, but these aren't the best you can find. I'd stick with some of the Victor Sinclair 55 series if you want a stronger medium flavor.

These are good cigars, but far from perfect. Great flavor but two problems I have with them: 1) Towards the end the wrapper sometimes becomes unraveled, and the cigar falls apart before I'm ready. 2) These have a great tendency to emit lots of hot ashes/embers. I would never smoke these wearing clothes I'm worried about getting a hole in. The same goes for furniture, because I've ended up with some holes in both. Overall, these are pretty good, but I have to be careful with them, which kind of a pain.

I have smoked these for years now, first had the coronas but have not been able to get them anywhere. I use almost daily, sitting in the yard or on the porch in the evening. Love the flavor from start to finish, does draw hard sometimes but if properly humidified then it burns great and draws great.

Received these today. Initially used a draw poker, then had to repoke after a few mins to get it to draw good. Having some issues with keeping it lit. Overall taste is similar to Don Rafael Churchill Connecticut. Smoking experience isn't nearly as good, though. Continues to need relit after setting down to type a sentence on this review. Kind of annoying. NO canoeing problems so far. Hopefully some time resting in my humidor will help the problem with staying lit.

This cigar might be better if in a shorter length. The Churchill length burns through the wrapper VERY often and is difficult to smoke, as a result. Proves the old addage,"You get what you pay for".

I found these cigars pritty good, They are a good cigar for someone new to the wonderful world of cigar smoking. The back up flavor, the taste after the first half of the smoke, is really good. I snuff these out about three times durring the course of the smoke, and on each relite, they seem to get better. I often tend to keep an unlit cigar clinched in my teeth while driving my bus, alas, good chewability! Will I reorder these cigars again? Maybe.
