"Fair Bang for the Buck"
First, I have to say that if you are looking for a perfect smoke for a buck a stick, you re delusional. For a buck, thee ain t bad at all.
The key word here is inconsistency . I ve smoked a five of these since my order arrived and no two are, thus far, quite the same. One had a very stiff draw which I was able to remedy. One was a bit skunky, i.e. neither the flavor nor the smell was particularly good. The other three weren t bad at all. Each had a bit of its own flavor character, but the variation wasn t very big. The biggest hit I have against them thus far, and it isn t a big hit, is that they seem to burn inconsistently, tending to canoe a lot.
I am, at best, a budget smoker , so cost is a strong motivator for me. Would I buy these again? At this price, sure, no problem!

Stevens comment This Hogg is not Loathsome is so true, OK its not the greatest but, satisfying, try with a fair Port or Rioja and it s really quite good

"These are Worthless."
I got two of these in 20 East Coast Rollers sampler. Some were okay but these were awful. I ended up throwing them in the trash.

"This Hogg is not Loathsome"
After smoking this cigar for the first time i have to say, this Hogg is anything but loathsome! In fact it is one of the best short/ mixed filler cigars I have had.
Appearance is rather mottled and lumpy, but hey no hogg is pretty!
Pre light aroma is practically non existent.
Draw is absolutely perfect, and this scored major points with me.
Initial flavors after toasting are a pleasant faint sweet spice which grows in intensity to the halfway point, after which the spice loses the sweetness and becomes very pleasantly tangy and heavy. This continues down to the nub.Very impressive flavor profile.
Excellent burn, did not require even one touch up.Medium bodied.
The finish is very long and tangy, holding steady in between draws.
Overall, this is one hogg i will gladly spend more time with!
