This thread is a serious review thread for my use of all types of tobacco products. I have the same thread at totse2.com but thought this place could go well with these reviews.
Quorum: What I had was just a generic Quorum cigar. For the $2.50 that I paid it was a great choice. When I enjoyed it my friend had a Grenedier Corona which is really nothing special (It is a much higher step up from Swisher cigars but what isnt?). I don't mean the Corona is not a good cigar because for the price I think it is the highest quality you can get. The Quorum was a very full cigar that had a mildly sweet after taste. You cant go wrong with one if your just going to enjoy something with a friend on an occasion that does not call for celebration.
Punch: I picked up a generic Punch cigar. These are pretty good cheap cigars, my tobacco shop sells them for 3.99. They are a fairly thick smoke that tastes great. The after taste is moderately strong but not over powering. Something I find important in my cigars are the after taste because I like to be able to taste it even after my smoking session is complete. I would recommend a Punch cigar for an occasion that isn't too grand but when a slight celebration is called for.
Baccarat Luchador: My friend picked up two of these when he put in an order for a large amount of cigars (in all he ended up spending $30 and got 15 cigars I believe). These were his most expensive at $4.99. I had a smoke with him and he had his Baccarat while I enjoyed my Punch. He liked it so much he insisted that I get a Luchador for our next weeks smoke session. I decided that ending mid term testing was a big enough reason to splurge on such an expensive cigar (Keep in mind I am shit broke so 5 dollars for a cigar is quite a lot of money to me). We had our cigars and they were amazing. I would recommend the Baccarat Luchadore to anyone who needs a good celebratory cigar. The flavours of this particular cigar range from spicy to sweet and stay mild the whole way through. The smoky after taste is the best I have ever had in my experience. I fully recommend this cigar as something to enjoy for a celebration.
Camel Crush Bold: This cigarette was very interesting to me when I first heard about it because when you got it it was a normal full flavored Camel cigarette. BUT! Once the filter is crushed and you hear the snap or click it is turned into a mentholated cig. Very interesting idea. Now the flavor on these bad boys is pretty damn good even before they are turned mentholated. Once you crush the ball of menthol flavor inside the filter that might just rock your world. I have had pretty little experience with mentholated smokeables but this one really hit the spot. The only thing is it takes one or two drags to really taste the menthol at full blast unless you roll the filter and squeeze and then wait a few seconds so the menthol can be absorbed into the filter fully. The only other thing I would really change is make them a 100 instead of 70 or whatever they are in size. Overall great smoke and it isnt just a gimick made by marketing. It really works and if you want to save money and like both menthol and regular cigs get a pack and you wont be sorry.
Djarum Black: The Djarum black is a clove mini cigar (I would deem it a cigarette but whatever suits the marketers fancy, right?). As said by Burroughs in his above post they do crackle when you inhale. It is very interesting to hear your first time and I believe it has something to do with burning clove but dont quote me on that. Now the Djarum Blacks taste very good for a clove. I have tried the Djarum Special which wasnt as great but still okay and the Djarum Splash which was spectacular. The blacks also smoke for a very long time which is nice because most cigarettes smoke for 5 minuets tops while this can go for possibly 15. They are fairly high quality for the price and if you inhale (not just drag the smoke into your mouth) it gives you a pretty good buzz. I would be unable to smoke these on a regular basis as the clove gets annoying after a while but they are still very good and I highly recomend them.
