Were talking hand rolled and proportedly 100% tobacco.
We talk a lot about the best well to have a best there must be a worst.

For me it was a bundle I bought at CI 50 for $ 39.00

Cremosa Cubana

Heres a quick review: (Hey its my first how appropriate)

The pre light aroma reminded me of the smell you get when you wash your dog. After cutting the head I noticed a slight unraveling which I corrected with licking. The taste from licking probably was similar to the wet dog but I have no frame of reference.

The prelight draw was loose and emparted a flavor of rotten meat. Upon lighting I noticed a strong dirty diaper odor followed by hints of effluent.

The burn was political - all down one side or the other. I tried to correct but didnt want to put my tongue on any other part of the stick.

As I aproached the 1/2 way point the cigar actually looked embarrassed, each side of the cigar had these little flaps curling out like shrugging shoulders.

Just past the 1/2 way point it started to tunnel and almost burned my lips.

I put it out and threw the other 49 away. No one deserves these.

Speculation on manufacturing method:

The Wrapper they say is Sumatra. It must have floated over on its own cause it dont taste like any tobacco I've every smoked.

They say these have Dominican Long-fillers maybe some kind of vegetable. Possibly once they have made real had rolled cigars, taken the scraps and made short filler, the remainder they gather up, boil into a guey paste, roll it out into thin sheets, let it dry and thats the long filler they mean here.

Truly the pinnicle of bad.

Dave, that must have been one horrendously bad cigar! Glad I never stumbled upon that one. Do you feel as though you've been scarred for life with the memory of that dog rocket? :r I'm sure those cubans of yours will wash away any lingering thoughts of that stogie. :D

A Bolivar Belicoso Fino bought at a Mexican resort.
It was actually the size of a Montecristo No.2 (not a BBF) and a total fake.
Tasted like crap & made want to give up cigars altogether!!

As for me, The worst cigar I've had (besides the gas staion cheap crappers) would have to be that Te-amo i showed you boys in the coffin box.

Man it started out pretty nice, but went so harsh I just could not enjoy it no matter how hard i tried. The Smoke went hot, the flavor resembled a mix of extremely bitter coffee, with a hint of cat urine (weird i know)

Had to throw it down half way through.

The worst two I can remember (I don't remember which was the worst) was between a Hugo Cassar Mexican cigar and a Acid Pimp Stick... both were equally bad from my memory. I guess I would have to maybe give the award to the Hugo Cassar as it was a robusto and at least the Pimp Stick looked pretty cool... as far as taste I think my lawn grass clippings fermented in diesel fuel for a week and rolled into a cigar would have been a welcome change... I only purchased 5 of the Pimp Sticks and traded some poor SOB who wanted to try them for some other sticks... the Hugo Cassars (all 24 of them) went to a co-worker who just "loved" them... LOL!!!!!!!

I get a big kick out seeing the advertising banner at the top of Club Stogie pages touting free Hugo Cassar cigars with another purchase...

A lot of you are going to kill me for saying this, but my worse smoke was this evening: Padron Anniversary Series 1964. It was terrible from start and until I put it out 5 minutes later. Even burn, nice pull...but taste like old cardboard. What a waste for a $15.00 cigar. Ugh...I can't get the smell or taste out of my mouth.

Oh geez I won 2 bundles of the Cremosa Cubana at cigarbid a while back. I have to agree with DaKlugs it is every bit as bad and maybe a bit worse than he is stating. I have managed to give all but 5 away to non smoking friends, and after them smoking it I'm pretty sure they will remain non smoking friends. :r

It just so happens tonight I decided to give one another try thinking a month in the humi might make it better.... well it didnt!!!
