Decent smoke, peppery with a zing. The tobacco is too young and the smoke on the tight draw is burning hot; it s either this or my tongue is sensitive to ammonia which I thought I could smell on the foot for the first two weeks. Left a bitter taste on my tongue and a rough feeling in my throat. Wrapper was flaky and the band hard to remove without tearing it off. I ve yet to try a cheap Don Pepin stogie I'd want buy a box of. 70 points.

"((( Easy Going Smoke )))"
The Cubao # 1 Churchhill is a mild cigar, with a smooth light brown colored wrapper. The cigar easily supports a nice one inch white ash. The draw is somewhat loose, but the burn is good and even throughout. The cigar exhibits smooth notes of creamy almond flavors, in the nose, and hints of wood are present on the pallet. The burn time on this cigar is approximately 65 minuets. On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd rate this Churchhill 6

I'm not your common cigar smoker. I'm a beginner who loves a full flavored smoke. I stopped at a local shop today and picked one of these up on recommendation. (The prices here are much better!) This was a WONDERFUL smoke! I chose a single malt scotch to enhance it and, (I'm not fond of scotch either so this was a surprise to me,) it just got better! While I'm still looking for the "perfect" smoke for me, this one climbs to the top of my list for now. I will absolutely smoke more of them!
