This stick sells for $13-$15 a stick everywhere else. Not that I think it's worth that but it is what it is. I am sure it could be found on cbid for a better price than the average price, but this deal seems to have beat them all by a long shot.

I am tempted by some good reviews here, but a few critiques mentioning the bitter bite of the connie wrapper, which I am not a big fan of, concerns me. However, at that price point, it may be worth giving it a shot and putting them away for a bit in hopes of mellowing the bite....hmm, mellowing a mild cigar, not sure if that would be good after all. What to do what to do?

They never got a ton better for me. Not a bad cigar, worth $4 but certainly not the MSRP.

Nowadays I'm of the mindset that I am just gonna spend money on a sure thing that I know I like rather than rolling the dice on a good deal on something that I may not like.  But that's just my opinion of course.  I've never smoked these so I can't offer up a review.  Basically I'm babbling now.....this is awkward.....

I have had these before and I actually do like them(or remember liking them, been a while) and I think for $4 a stick they are a good mild-medium bodied cigar. Smooth. Poor mans Davidoff. I agree not worth $16, but I have never paid that for them. I think the most I paid was $5.50 a stick back in 2015... and yes, I bought some this time around... I have friends that will go for these before my medium to full sticks, which is fine by me... I hate sharing those. But these, I can smoke them and hand them out and they will love them.

Thanks for the info Pete. For $40 for 10 I’ll take a gamble.
