More info about purchasing Don Tomas Clasico cigars...

Property of General Cigar, the Don Tomas brand exists since 1970. It has been reblended after the cigar boom. Produced in Honduras, this hand-made cigar features Honduran and Nicaraguan tobacco. Attracted by its unbeatable price, I picked up a few of them without much hope. However, I was pleasantly surprised by its reliable construction. It has enjoyable toasted flavors of wood and black pepper. Medium-bodied, it pairs up well with a single malt.

Thumbs Up!

  1. This is one of the cigars that got me into the habit, picked up at a duty free for a couple bucks a piece. Not a bad smoke at all for the price.

  2. Not a bad cigar for the price point. I have had a few in the past and probably will smoke it again sometime in the future but I wouldn’t go as far as to say it would be a staple in my humidor.

    This is one of my favorite cigars. I like to have a cigar on my lunch break and this is a cheap,daily go to smoke that takes care of business for me during my “quiet time.” Very enjoyable smoke.~Love and Gratitude~

  4. I’ve never had one. I’ve seen them in the shop but there are still too many other things in my humidor to smoke so they will have to wait.

  5. I have tried them twice, and did not like it at all. One of them was totally plugged and was almost unsmokable. Couldn’t find any interesting flavors either. Too bad, because the price is really attractive.

  6. @Alexandre, was it the Clasico blend? I tried some of the other ones from Don Tomas and wasn’t impressed.

  7. @Inspector: one of them was exactly the Clasico, with the yellow band, as shown in your picture. I was in Montreal for the Jazz Festival in the summer of 2008 and bought it at a local shop, thinking it would be nice to walk around, listening to the free concerts and smoking it. But… although it was a good fight between my diaphragm muscle and the cigar, the cigar was declared the winner by the third or fourth round. I really couldn’t make any smoke come out of it. :-( The other one, I’m not sure, had a red band. Maybe it was the Clasico Maduro. Not sure. But wasn’t impressive at all. Truly forgettable smoke.

  8. Lodge brother swears by Don Tomas as his “everyday” smoke…

  9. A friend of mine got me hooked on the clasicos! This is a great cigar for the cost! I smoked a box of these and from the first to the last cigar the draw the burn and the construction were excactly the same! Perfect! These are a great everyday alone cigar!

  10. Too bad a lot of cubans I smoke don’t have the consistancy of the clasico line!

  11. Once again I get to see a price that makes me cry. Around here they are 5.50. Fecking tax happy bastards.

    You should try the DT Sun Growns. One of my faves. 3.50 for 5×50 robusto. I’ve never had a bad one.

  13. I work in a bush camp in northern Alberta,Canada. A friend of mine just returned from his days off & brought me a Don Tomas Clasico & I truly enjoyed it. Will be looking out for more of these little beauties in the future.

  14. I bought a box of these last summer and I have really enjoyed them. they are mild but have a bit of spice. Had one today, on the back deck in the sunshine and enjoyed it.

  15. Nice cigar . Mellow and smooth , if you’re looking for a saterday afternoon treat , this hits the spot . Not a humidor stock but a quick pick me up is perfect.
