"Not disappointed... shocked."
I bought a box of churchill maduros on sale. The first thing I noticed was the very dark maduro wrapper. I pulled one out of the cellophane and gave it a sniff. Very nice. I was looking forward to a fine rich smoke. Nipped off the end (a little hard and brittle) and stuck it in my mouth only to recieve an awful shock... the thing is coated with sugar! The dark wrapper is dark because of this ridiculous heavy brown sugary coating. I don't know if I'm smoking a cigar or chewing on a friggin tootsie roll. On top of that you need a hydraulic pump to get any draw on the damn thing and the burn is lousy. This Baccarat is a half-baked toy cigar... like the candy cigarettes we puffed on as kids.

"Baccarat Churhill Maduro"
Very pleasant smoke...first couple of draws a little rough, but after that, pure pleasure.
I'll will definitely be stocking this one in my box;...and golf bag.
