These had much better wrappers and flavor when they had the old 898 band. Now they are meh. Ugly wrapper, below average taste. JC Newman would be disappointed in what they did to his cigar.less

The size and natural color of the 898's attracted me right off the bat. I've smoked two thus far, and enjoyed each one. I find these very soothing and mellow in character, with nutty notes. Just the right size and feel in the hand, with large clouds of smoke. The burn is uniform, and I was able to enjoy these down to the nub. I'm looking forward to my next one already! less

Very smooth and consistant.less
