Foundation Cigar Company - Olmec Claro Corona Gorda
Wonderful - worth the rating
Nicely presented in box. No construction issues, perfect draw and burn. Plenty of spice and strength - novice smokers best have full stomach and sugary drink

Ashton - Connecticut Mini Cigarillos (20 Pack)
Pleasant quick smoke
nothing super exciting - simple and dependable

CAO - Colombia Tinto
very nice, more mild than mid
Perfect construction and burn with slightly tight draw (good). Decent amount of smoke without needing attention. Relatively mild and honey notes. Smoked to nub without harsh finish.

Oliva - Serie V Senoritas (10 Pack)
Couldn't resist and smoked one within 30 mins of collecting mail - my new favourite quick winter smoke

Davidoff - Winston Churchill Belicoso (4 Pack)
Like Jeff said, excellent short smoke, both in taste and construction - looking forward to aging the others a bit longer

Toscano - 1492 Anno Domini (2 Pack)
my first cheroot
great burn, surprisingly long smoke time & super convenient for out&about smoke breaks

Acid - Krush Classic Blue Connecticut (10 Pack)
not the maduro but still nice
good intro the blue line, but smoke a kuba if you have the time

Acid - Krush Classic Morado Maduro (10 Pack)
My fav of the Krush
Great first smoke as a intro to the range - lots of flavour and pleasant smoke - no nicotine buzz to worry about

Acid - Blondie Red
Nice enough
Good flavour - lots of smoke - perfect burn - great over lunch break

Perdomo - Humidified Bag Reserve 10th Anniversary Champagne (4 Pack)
Simply wonderful
enjoyable from the wrapper to the nub - great value in a 4 pack

Camacho - Fresh Pack Criollo Robusto (4 Pack)
Sneaks up on you
starts relatively mild but transitions in strength - sharp consistent burn that doesn't need attention - great value but -1 star because excessive label glue tearing wrapper on some sticks

Acid - Blondie Maduro
Dark satin feel - pleasant small - delicious if you like the Krush Maduro

Camacho - Fresh Pack Connecticut Robusto (4 Pack)
Medium and very smooth
flawless smooth wrapper - perfect draw and burn - made a pleasant winter afternoon in the sun with a ginger beer

Acid - Blondie
Aromatic and mild
Perfect burn - plenty of smooth fragrant smoke - wonderful to enjoy with a meal

Acid - Krush Green Candela (10 Pack)
great quick smoke with flavour
always nice to have a wrapper that is different - I still prefer the purple/maduro, but this is still an excellent quick smoke with pleasant aroma

Sampler Packs - CAO Gold Sampler (4 Pack)
Very enjoyable
term "sampler" been used loosely, but a nice way to experience the effect of different wrapper and aging (smoke now vs smoke later) - consistent burn & solid constructions - the maduro is the star of this pairing

Montecristo - White Series Prontos Petites (6 Pack)
excellent quick smoke
lots of smoke - mild & creamy - rustic appearance but perfect burn - great for the price

Acid - C-Note
good for a quick winter smoke
small stick that shares the basics of its bigger siblings - needs regular attention when smoking outdoors in the cold, so difficult to prevent getting too hot - bring your own disposable plastic tips is suggested

Drew Estate - Tabak Especial Dark Roast (10 Pack)
Fragrant smoke and lots of it
Very pleasant paired with a coffee time smoko - well constructed and consistent burn - large amounts of smoke and never harsh - very enjoyable

Acid - Kuba Maduro
Smooth and enjoyable
Very enjoyable 60 minute spoke for first two-thirds - plenty of pleasant smoke - last third bit harsh

Drew Estate - Isla del Sol Sun Grown Robusto
Smooth & mild
Great $5 stick - smooth and enjoyable with slices of fruit in the warm sun - burn needed touching up a few times - single cap, so used wide punch, which meant a little tight on the draw - not much smoke unless double puffed - would probably benefit from 65 instead of 69 RH - overall, would buy again and pair with coffee

Southern Draw - 300 Hands 3-Cigar Sampler
Excellent 300 Hands intro sampler
The maduro had draw issues due to two thick stems plugging under the cap, but a Perfect Draw fixed - others were unobstructed, with good draw & razor sharp burn, which made for nice 70-90 minute sessions with coffee or rum

Drew Estate - Deadwood Leather Rose Petite Corona
Reminds me of a larger ACID Krush Maduro
Satin feel with pleasant smell - burnt consistently but needed more attention in last third - tasty overall & paired well with coffee - solid 45min smoke
