"I tried to like 'em, but...inconsistency reigned"
Got a five pack on auction after reading glowing reviews and approached these with an open mind. Not very attractive sticks; kinda lumpy. But they are solid and packed with tobacco. They have an earthy, barnyard smell; not that that's necessarily a bad thing. I've had fine cigars with the same smell. Only one out of the five had a decent draw, all the rest had a rather tight draw. Bad enough to justify using a draw poker (if I had one). Taste actually wasn't bad, if you could get a decent draw and didn't experience burn issues. Ah, burn issues were about the only consistent thing about these. Mostly tunneling problems but uneven burns had to often be checked with a lighter. The tunneling was the worst when it produced little smoke and an acrid, nasty taste. When it burned okay, the taste had some sweetness and choco/coffee flavors that were actually nice. I may try these again and let them sit in the humi awhile. They probably would benefit from a rest and maybe I was just impatient. I'll update if that happens.
