This will be a short review to inaugurate a new category: bargain or budget cigars. Normally these are going to be bundled cigars that sell for less than two USD. In most cases they will not require much attention to subtleties, because they will have none and aren't expected to. They're not going to get points for bouquet or an even burn — if they draw well and don't taste like crap, they'll get a passing grade.
This is a Rolando Reyes long filler second, or at least I assume it's a second… or why else would it sell for a buck? Supposedly they are the "old" Honduran variety, as opposed to a Dominican variety that was farmed out to Emilio Reyes, or the newer version made in Nicaragua for Cuban Crafters. At this price, (about a buck a stick) I really don't care if they were made in La Habana or in Detroit. There is only one question for cigars of this caliber: Do they suck?
In this case, they don't. They're fine yard gars. The Number Twos are long coronas, and smoke fine up to about the half way point, which coincidentally is about when I run out of time during a week as busy as this one has been. They taste fairly similar to the standard Puros Indios, nutty with a little sweetness, up to that half-way point when they turn a little rancid. They're about on the same level as "Rolys" from the same company; perhaps a mite better even.
A good draw, an even burn, and they don't taste like crap, at least for the first half. Bargain Smoke Grade: PASS.
