Very solid, and hard to beat for the price. Just make sure you have it at the end of the night after having coated your palate with some red wine tannins, and ideally accompanied by a peaty scotch. Would have rated the construction 100 points if the wrapper hadn't cracked and flaked at the end during storage.
This is an excellent cigar. This being said, it is not everyone s cup of tea, including mine, but you gotta give credit where credit is due. First of all, this is one cigar that is best had at the end of the day, after having had several other libations. With medium nicotine, just perfect to finish the night. The flavor is dark -- very dark -- with notes of cocoa nibs, coffee, and roasted nuts; I myself cannot appreciate it too well on an empty palate. The filler is not very tightly packed, yet not too loose either. Draw is just right with a bullet punch. The burn is usually very even, and not too fast, but it will go off if left unattended for too long. I ve cut the Churchills in half on several occasions and they never disappointed. Wish I can get them on sale again.
