Factory Throwouts #99 Natural Review

Cigar:Factory Throwouts #99 Natural (JC Newman)

Size: 7" 1/4 x 52RG

Format: Churchill?

I purchased a few bundles of these few months ago after reading several reviews online and finally smoked one yesterday. Paired with iced coke and a little jack, i was actually expecting an OK cigar due to its price which you guys can easily purchase for about $1 (i got them for about $2.1 in my country, duty free).


Once lit, the taste was very bland and tasted like some really cheap machine rolled cigars. It was like that the entire half when i decided to cut it open and lo and behold, i was shocked at what i found.


The binder was made with reconstituted tobacco and i even found a hair in there. Not to mention, most of the tobacco inside were as small shreads like what u find in cigarettes. And you know what the worse part was? - Finding PAPER which was used to hold the binder in the last 2 inches. Imagine if one had smoked it to the nub.


I did not take any pictures tho but i have another few loose sticks lying around (plus my 4 full bundles) to cut open should you guys wanna have a look. Im totally disgusted with this and shame on you, JC Newman.

Re: Factory Throwouts #99 Natural Review

Thanks for the warning! I've been curious about these, especially since a local B&M sells them as Fuente seconds. Now I know better!

I hope it was a human hair.

I just had a #49 and i'll post some pics in awhile for those who are interested. I know not everyone on the forum's able to afford a Padron but do avoid these at all costs.

Re: Factory Throwouts #99 Natural Review

Thanks for letting us know. I've been curious about these. Some local shops carry a good amount of them. Pretty sure I've smoked one of these throw outs and was unimpressed.

I've been known to give people a piece of my mind. Here lately, I'm questioning if I have enough left to share.

Re: Factory Throwouts #99 Natural Review

I think they use that paper on the cap end for "chewers". The wrapper leaf is pretty fragile and thin, and I think with the binder being what it is, it keeps the cigar from falling apart when/if it gets moist.

I've only smoked the #59s and it is indeed short-filler, but not as bad as cigarettes.

Its fine as a yard gar.

Life's too short to smoke bad cigars.
