Smoked this cigar after not having smoked one in about a year and was pleasantly blown away and the very desirable flavor. This cigar had impeccable construction, but the flavor lingered with butter rum notes--so much so I didn't want it to end. A fantastic smoke.

"Tale of Two Cigars"
I've only tried one Sumatra outdoors during cold weather. For more than the first half of the cigar, the draw was exhausting. Initially, I thought the v-cut had something to do with it, but after cutting the cap off, the draw didn't improve. More than half way through the cigar, the draw eased up, and the taste was good. The Sumatra burned even throughout. However, the taste and even burn wasn't enough to compensate for the draw. Will try again in warmer weather.
