The Football Cigar Review

This stick, about 4 1/2″ long and 60 or so around in the widest section, proved to be a novelty item. I didn’t know what to expect from it, simply because it was obviously a novelty cigar. On one had it might just be produced for fun and appearances, on the other – it is just a regular cigar with an odd shape and strips of darker leaf here and there. Unfortunately the construction proved to be very poor, with a weird burn at times, and offering little or no smoke until you got well over 1″ in to it. Flavors were very, very mild to mild, with just extremely bitter grass tastes and a bitter lingering finish. At the 1/2 way point the whole stick turned to soggy mush and got hot at which point I punted it. This $30 stick is good for appearances only. I still want to thank Football Cigar for donating it for review, I do appreciate the effort. Photography by BG Pictures.

  • Hey there … sorry to put you through this … i hope the next cigar made up for what the football cigar did to you .. anyhow … i just contacted the manufacturer and we see what we can do .. we will do a second color version and i hope we can make a more tasty version as well … once we have done the rework i am happy to send you a second try .. if wanna give it a another go

    we will try very hard to make more than just a novelty item > also a good smoke

    cheers gunnar

  • I’m always up for retrys, it would be really cool to have this be a quality smoke, I know a LOT of people are interested when they saw it!

  • i do fear that is was my 2 weeks travel through the states that sucked the taste out of the cigars … i had them in the car and well … to late for excuses 😉 .. no worries i will pack some as soon as i get the next fresh bunch … sure we can improve

    WoW….you are so pro, after you try the cigar even you know is bitter you smoke it half. Do you think if the person smoke this football cigar is the cigar will they stop smoking?

    P.S: Are you mad?(You look mad at the end)

    Thank You

    man, this things looks awesome. if i had one, i would just open it, use it for decoration, and let it dry out.

    Definitely one of the more entertaining cigar reviews that I have seen. Kudos to you for sticking it out.

    talk about taking one for the team. about half through the video I was thinking,have you ever just said that all I can take.now I know.

    I think I rather use it to play catch with before a game. Just very odd overall. However if you would’ve had a good experience I may of had to try it.

    This made me sick just watching the review. The name caught my attention but it’s like I can imagine the taste you were describing and got sick.

    doesn’t the bitter ammonia taste come from inadequate fermentation? They probably throw these things together with shitty leaf that was barely fermented figuring no one will ever smoke one.
