I had never heard of Vaquero Filtered Cigars until I stumbled upon them while browsing for filtered cigars on my favorite site, www.buydiscountcigars.com. They had a great price and an interesting looking pack, so I figured I would order a carton and try them out, and I am very glad that I did!
First of all, I used to smoke cigarettes for about 15 years, but I moved over to filtered cigars because cigarettes became so darn expensive. 7 dollars a pack? NO WAY! I have enjoyed smoking filtered cigars, and they are like a cigarette in a lot of ways, but they definitely tend to have a stronger taste, and I cannot say I am a big fan of that having smoked light cigarettes for 15 years. I have tried a lot of brands, and have found several filtered and little cigars that I like, mostly because they are milder, and again because of price.
When I first got a pack of Vaquero Filtered Cigars out of the carton, I really liked the black pack. I like my cigarette and filtered cigars packs simple and hate when they look cheap and odd (get some strange looks from people when you have a giant ugly pack of cigars!). The price and the pack got me interested for sure, but it would be the tobacco that would be the real game changer for me.
I ordered the Vaquero Natural filtered cigars, and they look good, have a great price, but would they smoke well and taste good too? The filtered cigars light very easily, stay lit (no stupid fire-safe paper!!!), and gave a nice puff of smoke with a pretty effortless drag. But, what I liked most is, they are VERY mild! They taste more like a light cigarette than a filtered cigar. I know for some people this will be a negative, but I imagine a lot of fellow ex-cigarette smokers will love these like I do. I get the mildness and flavor of a cigarette at the price of $1.50 a pack from buydiscountcigars.com!
I will be smoking these for a long time, and I recommend them to anyone who will listen.
