"An excellent all-occasion smoke"
This cigar replaces the Romeo Y Juliet Churchill as my "standard" cigar due to superior quality control. Nearly every cigar in the box yields an even burn, smooth draw, and great flavor. Unfortunately, the R & J's of late have yielded about 10 sub-standard cigars per box.

"Not the brand it once was."
This brand has faded in recent years. It was bold, spicy, aggressive, handsome. Now it's bland, user friendly, ugly. The construction quality has declined too. A boring, one-dimensional smoke.
