The Thompson Explorer Churchill Habano is an excellent Churchill cigar that goes for a much lower price than boutique and top shelf brands. Thompson Explorer Habano cigars make use of premium Havana seed filler tobaccos for a wonderfully rich and satisfying smoking experience. While that high quality tobacco is good enough to make these solid Churchills hold their own against a variety of top shelf brands, they get even better by featuring a delicious Java Habano wrapper. The 7 inch size and 52 ring gauge of these fine Thompson cigars adds up to a long, very satisfying smoking experience. These high end smokes were conceived as a result of a partnership between Thompson and a secret top-shelf cigar manufacturer. Although the name of that manufacturer won’t be revealed, the fine smoking experience generated by these smokes shows that a master cigar blender had a hand in making them.

I bought 2 boxes and I am in the first box with a little disappointment. So far 4 cigars have stopped burning 1/2 way thru.. You can not get them to light--you can not draw for them to light--they just come to a stop. I ene tried just burning the balance and it would not catch fire

Hard to stay lit. Draw is good when it does stay lit. Flavor gets bad after about 1/2 the cigar, and worse if you have to repeatedly light it again and again. About 1 in 4 seem to be good, the rest are throwaways after 10 minutes.

Perfect everyday burn smoke. Flavor is good and the value for the quantity and size is very good. Especially if you get added coupons. These cigars come from the Philippines and I find them much cheaper and fresher buying via from Thompson's than in the actual Philippines. Cigars in the Philippines have become pricey.

I just couldn't understand how Thompson could retail this product. I am glad I purchased the 100 count so I made sure I was not mistaken about the results. Darn near every other cigar I had to cut in half to get a decent draw out of it. Every other one came apart while smoking. To add to insult I was amazed at the number of times I had to light the cigar over and over again.

Do not waist your money use that $57.00 and add a little more and invest in a more quality tasting cigar that actually draws that you'd be able to smoke. I did find a small solution if you cut them in half they draw and smoke much better.

I have ordered these and gave them a chance through the years. Some draw easily, others don't draw at all. The tobacco burns uneven, up the sides. Tried the draw poker, nothing helps. Wasted probably 40% of the cigars. You buy 100 to save money and wind up throwing it away.

I am a long term customer of Thompson Cigar and have been very satisfied. This is my first negative review. Cigars were so tightly wrapped and had so many imperfections I had to throw most of them away. I usually buy a more expensive cigar, but thought I might give these a try. Big Mistake.

Gave one of these to a co-worker the day I got them in. He was to smoke one on his way home and I was going to do the same. Next morning we got a huge laugh. He could not keep it lite or smoke his and I told him I was hoping mine was the only one that way. We both got a great laugh out of how bad it went. Good news is we only have 98 more to get smoked.

I usually purchase low price bundles or box of cigars for daily use. Lately with a lot of yard work I am smoking more often. I understand I am not purchasing a high quality but I never had such a bad experience as I am having with this batch. Must light many times, the end would get hard like charcoal and I have to cut the hot end off to relight. Once in a while I find one that is less of a challenge in smoking. I hope you take these off your list. I am now going to shop at other sites.

This cigar is a good looking cigar from a cosmetic perspective. The veins are small and it looks to be a decent cigar for every day smoking. That being said, It is wrapped so tight, you cant draw on it. It will have to be pocked several times and that did not even hel much. It is ver tight. I tried to save money to get a decent price per smoke, however only about 1/3 of the cigars were smokable. The rest were just thrown away. Total cost was probably $3 to $4 per stick in reality.

I look for three things in a cigar, good draw, even burn and good taste. For the price this cigar is a good buy. Decent draw, uneven burn but great taste. I would recommend this to a friend.

these are a chore to smoke. the binder does not burn. they burn down the middle leaving binder and wrapper to collapse inward toward the ash. They appear to be rolled with the cuttings from the floor, as I spend more time spitting bits out than smoking the cigar. Can't recommend them to anyone.

Simply put... you get what you pay for- tried to cheat and get this relatively good price on this box of cigars- Nope. The draw is near impossible... nothing like getting a headache trying to draw on this cigar when you're just trying to relax and enjoy it, and they won't stay lit...tried to work with the cigar and even ran a punch through them to allow more air-nope. Tried this with 5 of them- gave up..... the rest are going in the trash. My advice, pay the extra money for the good cigars and save yourself the frustration and the HEADACHE. I'l stick with my Arturo y Fuentes.

This is the second large order that I have placed. Both orders arrived in less than fresh condition. I am very disappointed but I guess you get what you pay for. I store all of my cigars in a humidor but have not figured out how to hydrate stale cigars. I probably will not order these cigars in the future.

Ordered these when my usual cigar was out of stock. The price is right but there are issues. The wrapper is not well constructed, and these do not burn even. They did improve after sitting in the humidor for a while. For the price can't complain too much. I would recommend these but with details.

I smoke 1 or 2 cigars each day and find the Churchill Explorer to be an acceptable smoke for the price although 50% or more of the cigars could use a poker to get a decent draw. The flavor is variable. The ring gauge is very variable so, some are tight and some are loose. Filler is not very consistent so, construction is variable, too. The wrapper and cap are very thin on 30 or 40% which makes punching a chore. The cigar is okay, only. I would recommend it to a friend with full comments to be sure they know what they are buying.

I've been happy enough with this decent, inexpensive smoke, but lately they are spongey, uncured and hard to keep lit. Maybe they were selling TOO well? If you don't want to canoe your way through life, be prepared to let these sit for awhile.

Grabbed a 50 count box of these when they were on special. Glad I did. I am no expert, but I enjoy a good smoke daily and would whole heartedly recommend these as an everyday / commute into work smoke. The only bad point I can think of is that they seem to be thrown together fastly and cheaply,which may contribute to the loose packing. On the lighter side, that makes for an easy draw ha ha!

My last purchase of a 100-box of the church-hills was disappointing and not what I have to come to expect from a stick with the Thompson name on it. The ones I smoked were from Indonesia and it appears most of your line is as well.I am going to move to something that I have had more consistent results with in the past.
