NOT AN INFUSED CIGAR, BUT...
I bought these thinking they were on the lines of infused cigars that smell and have a particular taste to the leaf as well. Full disclosure, my favorite infused cigars are Tabak especial dulcue and the maduro. I also enjoy the Isla del sol as well. As I read the description I thought the vanilla cone description and thought it would be similar in style and taste.
The Cons from my prospective was there was no real smell or taste to the cigar. The wrapper wasn't dipped in any type of vanilla and the smell wasn't apparent. My wife asked if it was like the ones I always smoke because there was no sweet smell to it.
Pros to the cigar, is well made, the box pressed is constructed in a very impressive way. Light nicely and burns evenly and slow to the pull which was nice. If I had to compare this cigar I tend to think it was like the Monticristo white series but thicker in gauge and box pressed. Nice, not too strong which I tend to like, but alas not an infused cigar that I hoped. I bought the 10 pack which I regret, but I will smoke these when I want to break up my infused cigar smoking with a mild cigar that I can enjoy as well. Not what I thought, but was still a nice cigar.

This cigar was definitely worth the price. It has the perfect blend of cream and spice.

This cigar was just as described and better. Don't order cigars online ever, but when I do these are definitely in there.

This is just a fun cigar and very enjoyable. The description is accurate with the taste.My friend also smoked one and she does not smoke cigars all that often she loved it and even got many of the flavor notes that are mentioned. Great Cigar!

I purchased a 10 pack thinking that if this cigar is half as good as the hype on the description a 5 pack wasn't going to be enough. I'm glad I did, they have not disappointed. this stick tastes sooooo good that I'm getting ready to reorder. Great taste, great construction. I will definitely buy again!

Smoked the other boxpress that was in the sampler. True to its name it tasted of spice and cream. Draw was slightly looser than I like but manageable. Heavy canoeing. Had to touchup throughout smoke. Ash about 1.5 inches before drop. 2nd half still had a nice mix of spice and cream though both were muted with the cream more so. Cedar notes developed. Final 3rd sweet cedar. Light bodied. A pleasant cigar but the construction issues were annoying. Disecting the nub I found all long fillers. Binder looks to be Connecticut as well. I have a round version from another sampler pack that I will try latter for comparison.

Arrived today. The spicecream bxp robusto wasn’t in a wrapper so it caught my eye. Had flecks of green throughout wrapper. Decided to smoke it instead of putting in the humidor. Tight draw. Could be from it being a boxpress. A mellow cigar. Ash was on the darker side. I’ll report on the others in this sampler as I try them.

Purchased a 5 pack of 6x60. Came packed with care a small humidity pack to keep fresh for its trip. Well i was so overexcited when they arrived and saw the little card thanking me for my purchase and another saying put in your humidor for 3-5 days before smoking. Did i do that? no! Should i have? Yes! But im like a kid and the review said vanilla waffle cone and the picture is of a vanilla waffle cone! I MUST have one now!!! Well it was ok and I thought man I hyped myself up to much and now im disappointed. I noticed a very week scent of vanilla and tasted very slight pepper but overall was not loving it! So I waited a good 7 days at 67% and 70 degrees. Lets see if the next stick is any different after sitting. Well i wish i had will power because this one was very very good and my girlfriend even said wow i wish it came in a scented candle it smells so good! So there ya go,i give it a 5 and im sure the first one would’ve been also. Ill buy again!

I’m not normally a fan of Connecticut wrapped cigars. I got this in a sampler, and I’m very glad I did. It’s everything they say it is...smooth, creamy, and delicious. The boxed press construction is elegant and flawless, and the burn was razor sharp. I’m shocked this cigar isn’t twice the price.

These are Incredible!! I did not have a chance to smoke the original but this boxpressed is amazing. I got two in a sampler and immediately wished I would have bought more. It's not flavored or too sweet, just an incredibly pleasant smoke.
