Acid Green Candella Cigarillos (4 3/4" x 28) is Acid's first dabble in the mass market cigars since Swisher International merged with Drew Estate Cigar Company. Now you get to experience the unique taste of Acid at a fraction of the cost.
I will start by saying that these cigarillos are a great way to enjoy Acid cigars on a regular basis if you are on a budget. I bought two boxes of the blues, reds, and greens to try them out. I've been looking for a good economy cigar to smoke during the day. And these definitely work for that. I try hard to smoke one premium cigar every night. Would love to smoke premiums throughout the day, but that's a little bit outside of my pay grade at this time! These don't taste exactly like your regular Acid premiums. But that is absolutely fine because for me it does not ruin my palate when I want to enjoy an Acid at night. they are a little heavier with the sandalwood and cloves flavor. Maybe a little star anise in there as well. Drew Estate has a brand called Ambrosia that is supposed to have some of those similar flavors. I wonder how close these are to the ambrosia line? I will find out soon enough as I ordered a box last night. Another benefit of these is that sometimes when I finish my last cigar of the day I find that I just don't feel done yet and want to smoke more but I don't want to light up another premium cigar, and I don't want the flavor of my economy cigars either after smoking a nice cigar. But these fill in that gap nicely. Especially when I have just smoked an Acid. I definitely recommend these and think that all three flavors are great.
I love the Garcia and Vega green cigarillos like these, and been really happy with every other Drew Estate and Acid smoke Ive tried, so these were a natural choice. Tell you what, a Home Run ! Always fresh in the sealed pack, light, sweet, mild, great draw, lots of smoke. I like to inhale mine, and these you can inhale all the way through ! I think with this amount of draw your going to experience loose filler, which will come out some in your mouth, I dont really mind it, part of the experience. these might have some cloves added, giving it a vibrant sort of antiseptic quality, but in a good way, makes them unique from all the rest. These are splendid little smokes ! Very happy with them !

Bought a couple at a local Tobacco outlet and was very pleased. The taste is pleasant. Not something I would order online for myself on a regular basis, but would definitely look for these at local shops. Beats the competition by FAR!!!

I have occasion to enjoy a great smoke at times. The flavor and aroma need to pair with many things. These little gems are great with just about anything. The aroma inspires many thoughts of certain areas in my life. I Have received nothing but praise and surprise when I smoke one. Only one issue so far I have seen, it is a very loose filler. I need to pack it slightly to keep it from falling and to have a proper burn.
