Red Lion Cheroots

​The US used to be home to hundreds of cigar factories and one town, in particular, was home to more than 30 manufacturers - Red Lion, PA. One of their most popular lines was the eponymous Red Lion cigar, and now it's back, restored to its former glory.
Not only do Red Lion Cheroots share their name with a classic brand, it's indicative of the kind of cigar that was commonly made in the late 19th century. These rough-hewn cheroots are hand-rolled in the Dominican Republic and feature US-grown tobaccos. The wrapper is an earthy-sweet Pennsylvania Broadleaf and the filler is fire-cured Kentucky, so even though they're small, they're loaded with flavor, and at just a bit above 80 cents apiece, stocking up on Red Lion Cheroots is a no-brainer.

Outstanding product, smokes good, just strong enough, no problem with the first box. Have reordered, like the way they are rolled, and draw. Good taste and wrapper. Think these will replace the Bandidos, on my order list. Thank you for a good product

Good bangfor the buck.
Very tasty little cheroot. nice aroma and not yoo harsh. my only complaint is that some burn a little unevenly i think due to a loose roll. for the price it's a winner.

A very mild smoke and a fair value. The filler is however a bit too loosely packed, and they often don't burn evenly.

Badger's Opinion
Each cigarillo in this box is unique in shape and dimension. Some are packed too tight to draw through. However the ones you can smoke are enjoyable.

Not very "cherooty"
These are not very "cherooty"; they're more like a cigar ordinaire. They're rather loose (they do draw well), and the wrapper is quite soft, despite the rustic appearance. I much prefer Kentucky Cheroots, which are sweeter and have a wrapper you can really chomp down on (good when you're on horseback or trying to shoot out a hangman's rope).

Ugly but enjoyable.
Ugly and misshapen plus it burns irregularly at best. However, the taste is enjoyable. If you will tolerate relighting, this can be a nice short smoke.

not worth the money
horrible cigar. Loosely rolled and falls apart. Do not buy it.

Not What I Expected
Crude and flimsy, the construction of these cigars leaves a lot to be desired. Very loosely rolled, they tend to burn unevenly. The tobacco inside often burns right down through without taking the wrapper with it. Have a pair of scissors or lighter on hand to cut or burn the excess as you smoke. The loose construction also means that halfway down, the smoke gets hot. One redeeming quality is that they are made with good tobacco, which burns well in a pipe if your tastes are for stronger leaf. Good cigar for those on a budget.

A great little smoke
Small but powerful these cheroots really pack a punch. An earthy sweet Pennsylvania broadleaf wrapped and excellent Kentucky dark fired tobacco what are you reading this for get them now!

Spicy and Cheap!
Clint Eastwood would not be displeased. Great little smokes, dark and spicy maduro type flavor, and at the price you can't beat it!

Red Lion Cheroots
Won't buy again. They don't burn evenly. Majority burn in the middle and go out. outer wrap doesn't burn complete. Not worth the hassle.

Just what you would expect from a Cheroot!

Not for me
I've smoked five of these so far and I'm not pleased with them. None have stayed lit and one even came unwrapped. Will wait for Bandidos that are on backorder again.

Good flavor, good price, inconsistent quality.
I've been enjoying the quality tobacco used in these cigars. No candy-coated wrapper to distract from sub-par tobacco, here, and no need for one, either. They have a rich, full-bodied flavor, but they're not too harsh. Honestly, I'm not one to say things like, "It has a boquet of roast vegetables, and hints of cooked leather and an undertone of earth." I only eat one of those on a regular basis, and I don't care much for roast vegetables or dirt, anyway. The description should tell you what tobaccoes are in the filler and what the wrapper is. I'll tell you that those are what it tastes like, and they're pretty good, too. One problem I have with these, though, is the inconsistency of the wrap. I often have to pull out my lighter to get the wrapper burning evenly, and I did have one go out because the stuff on the inside continued to burn while the wrapper and surrounding filler was too tightly packed. Others, however, have smoked beautifully and burned evenly. On the whole, you really can't argue with the price when the smokes taste this good. I'd be more inclined to hand 'em out during a break on a motorcycle ride with a few buddies than at a wedding or a bachelor party, but I'll be content to be smoking a few of these each week for the next few months.

Red Lion Cheroots are not bad. They have a good flavor. A little loosely packed compared to Kentucky Cheroots but a good smoke for the price.

Red Lion cheroots are an
Red Lion cheroots are an outstanding recreation of the cigars of yesteryear. They remind me of the dry rolled cigars I used to smoke in South Africa. No need for a humidor with these just toss into the glove box of your Rover and you will have a decent smoke the next time your about. Love these little cheroots, glad to be able to find them in the states again. The original Ghurka style is back.

The Honest Truth.
Red Lion Cheroots. Clint Eastwood style cheroot. They will make you about as mean as him when he was in the Motion Picture Fistful Of Dollars. If you enjoy fire cured Peppery goodness with a load of bite then these are for you. However for me. I didnt enjoy them as much as i hoped i was going to. Comparing these to Banditos (in which i will be buying again) They are a lot more on the not so sweet side, yet they have a smokey peppery campfire flavor. If that is your thing. buy em. However i will be aging these and experimenting with spritzing some whisky, tequila, rum, etc on these for some initial flavor. To me these are as full flavor as you can get. some others may think not so much. again this is just how i taste, it maybe different for you. If you want to try em go for it. im sure you will find someone to dump em on if you dont like em. Never hurts to try. I may revisit them in the future!

Red lion opinion.
I was disappointed in these, I much prefer the KFC cheroots, these were spongy, and really didn't have much flavor. Finding a few where the wrapper is not tight.

Great buy!
A very good product for the price. It is well worth trying this product at least once as a member of P&C.
Customer Testimonials
These are some of the best cigars I have ever had and definitely one of my favorites. First of all, the price cannot be beat. Each one will provide around thirty minutes of great flavor. If you could take beef jerky and roll it up and smoke it, then this is what you would get. They are simply delicious and at this price can't be beat. They are very rugged looking, but for me that only adds to their attractiveness.
Pretty decent smoke. Good flavor, although the description is slightly misleading. The short-filler is a blend that contains fire-cured kentucky. It is most definitely not 100% fire-cured kentucky filler. Consider these a cheaper alternative to the Drew Estate KFC delphinas. Nearly identical in flavor. The PA Broadleaf wrapper is wonderfully thick and tasty and it only has 1 binder layer. At $40 for a box of 60, you can't go wrong.
