"So Far So Good"
Ordered a box of these, and I am not gonna lie, I had my doubts. But they didn't disappoint. Smoked a couple more or less right off the bat, and they were well above average. A bit of a draw problem, but nothing major.
I have put them in a humidor, and with luck, they will improve to an even higher level with time. I shall be testing them periodically. Good Buy.
My only complaint is that the burn isn't exactly the most attractive, but you can't win 'em all right? The taste more than makes up for it.

This is a beautiful cigar. Fantastic flavors of cedar, spice, nutmeg and coffee. The draw on some is hard, but will open up throughout the smoke. This cigar holds its own for two dollars a stick! I've smoked 10 of these and I know I'll be ordering more soon. These cigars get better with age. For those out there wanting it to burn better and be a little more mellow, let it sit in your humidor for a month. I noticed these illustrious smokes improve even after the course of a week. If you don't buy a box now, you will regret it later.

Got one of these in a sampler. Great burn, though the wrapper cracked several times while smoking. Tons of smoke on the draw, just not a lot going on flavor-wise. Pretty mild. Good for what it is though: an inexpensive, fairly mild, non-offensive cigar that burns well. Unfortunately, it just isn't my particular taste.

"Tasty and Spicy but draw problems"
Loved the flavor and Spice. To bad over half the box had serious draw problems. A few were so plugged I had to trash them. The ones that had a good draw were fantastic. To me very similar to the Pepin made famous 7k(rip)

"Awesome little smoke"
This is a little cannon of a smoke! Pepper, spice, nutty,complex and remains strong the entire distance... great value
