I have only had The Java. It was good at first but the flavor just got to be monotonous. I would never buy another one

I have never had one, but have been meaning to give them a try. Just so many other things on my list right now that I can't bring myself to buy one any time soon.

You're not missing out on anything IMHO. But different people have different tastes. To get the same flavors I would rather spend the money on a Padron 64 and have a cup of coffee with it.

Ahhh, well since I'm not a big coffee fan anyways... I might just a pass all together. Thanks.

Generally I like the Drew Estates for a change of pace, especially the Natural line. The Acids can be a bit overwhelming.

My favorites are:
CI's Legend - Copper
Clean Robusto
Kuba Kuba
Pimp Stick

I do not hate Drew Estate, I have a permanent place in my tupperdor for the Liga Privada, also if I am feeling like something different I will fire up an Extra Ordinary Larry (Juggernaut - what a great word!). The Acid Krush is like sucking on a sugar cube while smoking, the Blondies IMHO are a great quick little smoke when I do not have much time. One thing I have noticed, that I like about the Drew Estate cigars, they seem to be very consistent.

Of course I'm still a n00b .. so what do I know :D:D

I am sure that many people will not like this, but last night, while a friend was over (we were working on my motorcycle), we went and got ribs and then we each smoked a blondie while enjoying a woodchuck. I know, I know. But it all tasted so good. I enjoyed the aromas. It was all so perfect. After ribs and breadsticks and everything else it was a great cap to it all.

I used to smoke ALOT of Kuba's but now it's mainly the Cheatu Real and a Cold Infusion Tea once in a GREAT while when I want somethin different

I just bought a box of the Drew Estates Tabak cigars - these are the new coffee infused sticks, and they are really good IMHO. I'm not much on most flavored sticks, but the Drew Estates Java's and the Tabak's are very nice smokes, especially with a nice cup of morning coffee. :tu

I have never had one. I didn't like the CAO flavored cigar so I am not really interesting in wasting time with another brand. I might eventually get around to one of their non-flavored but probably no time soon.

My wife loves flavored cigars and frankly, they are damn tasty. When we really got into cigardom earlier this year, her cigar of choice was Acid's Blondie. I dug the name, the marketing and the nifty bouquet and I certainly appreciated that she could enjoy a cigar with me and looked forward to those times as I do.

I picked up a Kooba Kooba once for myself but it was too much for me if I recall. Blondies are a great size and I'd not want to spend a full hour on a flavored cigar like that. Just my personal taste.

A couple months ago, when I went to my B&M to buy some more blondies for my wife, Boomer said he was out of blondies but suggested the Drew Estates' Jucy Lucy. My wife was hesitant because she liked the blondie so much.

I'm actually surprised nobody's mentioned the Jucy Lucy here. It's delicious and now has become my wife's favorite. It's even smaller than the blondie yet still lasts. I still haven't had a whole one to myself, but I'll certailnly take a few drags off hers here and there!

I didn't like the CAO flavored cigar so I am not really interesting in wasting time with another brand.
When we were hanging out at our B&M's lounge, my wife sampled a CAO flavored cigar called 'Eileen's Dream'. This one didn't even compare to the DE cigars. It was supposed to taste like Irish Cream & white chocolate truffles. I didn't get it at all. Pretty tasteless, so Rolando if you want to try another flavored...I'd check out the Jucy Lucy or a Blondie.

Just don't put any of these sticks anywhere near your other cigars because your stash of Padron 1926's will very quickly take on the infusion of the flavoreds. Reminds me, I need to get a separate humidor for my wife.

Ive always liked drew estate cigars flavored or not....I went to a buddies house saturday night and smoked an olivia V, then smoke 3 acids cigars after that and caught myself saying more good things bout the acids lol...

I smoked the acid 5, a kuba kuba, and the new irish hops....They were all awesome.

My fiancee also likes acid cigars and likes to smoke CAO eileen's dream..

Yeah the deal where they have to have their own storage container is a bit more hassle than I am willing to put up with.

You know, for now, I keep them in their cellos and throw 'em in an old cigar box. After all, I'm more picky about proper storage than my wife is. When I bring them out with us, I put them in a tightly sealed cigar tube. Does the trick. I could even store them in the tubes in the cigar box to keep them airtight. If only I had enough tubes. I guess I need to get shopping.

I voted for "love 'em", although "moderately like them" is a better fit. I like the Java and Java Latte's. Am not a fan of the Pimp Sticks, Juicy Lucys or any other type of Drew Estate.
