I'm no aficionado (yet) on cigars, but I've been trying a lot lately, especially under the acid banner. This has been my least favorite so far. It has its positives, nice aroma, nice shape, pretty even, slow burn, everything you'd expect from acid, but the taste... Was not what I've come to expect from acid. Every draw was different, which was cool, but I never knew whether I was going to get chocolate, or toasted sour milk. This is the only acid I've put out before finishing it so far. The bad just outweighed the good for me. If you like the flavor on the wrapper that acid is known for, don't buy this. The wrapper is very dark, and very natural. It could be good for the right pallette, and I'd give it another shot to be sure. I really don't see myself buying a box for the humidor though.

"Nasty is correct name"
Got this in the sampler and it is the one that I will NOT buy again. No real taste in the draw. Really felt like a half step up from a Philly blunt type of cheapie.

"Weird and different"
I've just started smoking this never tried it before. It's not a typical cigar shape. It's like a pyramid . Smells nice but the taste borders on bitterness but not quite !!!! Easy draw and excellent burn . It's small too. Can't say ill try it again but it's not overly horrible.

"Best Acid Smoke!!"
When it comes to the Acid line, there are some diehard favorites and this is one. Great smoke, enjoyed form start to finish. Really picked up on the cocoa nuances and loved every minute of it.

It is completely unlike anything I have tried. It is very aromatic smoke almost like incense, but it taste completely different from the way it smelled. It was much spicier that what I expected. I dislike the shape of the cigar. Anouth thing I did not like after I was done smoking, it left a extremely strong odor on me.

I regularly smoke Kuba Kuba's, Blondies and other Drew Estate cigars. I received the Nasty in a sampler tin and it was the worst cigar I have ever smoked. Extremely strong and terrible taste. After about 2 minutes I had to throw it away. I would never buy this line again.

Not as good as the Kuba's but they are still very good.

"Acquired taste may be for the better?"
I am not new to the Acid brand Cigars. They are my go-to, with this said. This cigar is high on my list, top 4, for Acid cigars.
The taste may distance itself from typical Acid Cigars, but this does not change the philosophy Drew Estate puts into every Acid. This Cigar Is unique, in it's fullness, to the Stages of burn as the cigar is smoked.
I feel that the design is something that makes the smoke so enjoyable; starting full force, ending smooth.
Give it a try, as an active acid buyer, I am glad i did.

Good even burn. Last well over a half hour which isn't bad for a 4 inch stick. Alright taste. I am a acid fan i like the oils they use. I perfer the blue lable. I think the blondie has the most bang for the buck hands down.

"Smoked it to the nub!"
It was a unique smoke. I picked up on the roses right away. Plus it has an earthy taste to it. The ash was white and hung on for over over an inch on a windy day outside. I smoked it to the point that I would have burned my fingertips if I continued. The Nasty was the second of the Acids I have smoked. It's not for everyone, but some may appreciate the flavors it provides.
