"An odd egg at that ~ Clearly in a class of itself"
My Egg came included in an Auction purchase that was filled with many Name Brand cigars that had been stored away in the basement of an old Victorian house long abandoned by a family with too much worth . It looked aged but somehow maintained its integrity = great care was put into making this odd egg. I babied it for six months rehumidifying it along with the other dried out aged smokes. The first puff made me smile and it held true to it s two hour enjoyment claim. I put it up high on my list of surprising and satisfying stogies. For sure it is not for everyone, it s shape alone will separate the herd with most shying away from it due to appearance alone. I recommend this only to my more seasoned cigar connoisseur friends. Yes, a cork was quickly pulled on my finer Brandy. It was an experience rather than just another smoke with friends who share the enjoyment that can only come from a quality smoke. Age may have played a part with this one s tastse. I will know how it compares to it s more modern Family. I say enjoy one but prepare before you embark on it s journey. Make the time and correct compliments to get the full value an Egg Offers.

"Pretty good for something REALLY different"
It was a pretty good, but not exceptional smoke. It was mild, with surprising changes in taste, but was an uneven burn and began to fall apart toward the end. I wasn't disappointed, but it's not something I would choose to smoke often.

"Why the heck did I smoke that stupid thing"
Well , sometimes I get in the mood for a drew estate . I tried an egg .. It light up well , good draw but there was ZERO taste and it was way too light . I put it out after 10 minutes and light up a real cigar.

"Dicotimistic; "like a Boa that swallowed a Rabbit""
It's an extreme dicotomy of the mellow smoothness from start to middle, then the rich pungent love bite 'til the end.

"Disappointed thats all i was"
Ok,to start off I enjoy many of the drew estate cigars and I am very open to any new types and flavors of cigars with a company like drew estate I belive you have to be. The start of the cigar brought out great flavor and a decently thick smoke with great anticipation I had finally made it to the "egg" part where I expected a plethora of flavors which it claims to present, but instead I ended up with almost no smoke, no flavor, and one very HOT cigar. I wanted the cigar to be good so I kept trying to smoke it but the "egg" of the cigar is so loosely packed that all it does is get hot. I do not suggest trying this cigar for I am afraid to steer away any possible drew estate smokers for many of the cigars are great such as the natural juicy lucy, acid kuba kuba, or the acid blondie.

"Egg - two thumbs down"
I really don't like putting down a cigar, but for $10.00 a pop, I thought it only fair to make other smokers aware of my experience with my first Egg. Im actually a big Drew Estates fan, so that makes it even harder to rate this cigar so low.----------------
I dont submit any Overall customer rating unless I smoke at least two of a certain cigar, because the Consistency rating is impossible to determine after only one cigar. But heres the ratings that I gave these four categories : Construction- 5. Taste- 5 at best. Draw- at times, between 5 & 1. Burn at times, between 5 & 1. These are the very lowest ratings that Ive ever given a cigar. For all I know, I got a rare bad one.----------------
Its worth saying that when I cut a cigar, I always check the draw before I light it. Any cigar thats too tight on the draw goes back into my humidor to rest until its open enough to draw OK. Before lighting, this Egg was WONDERFULLY open almost an effortless draw. After lighting, it plugged up so bad that I thought Id just have to chuck it. But I struggled with it (and it was a BIG struggle)! As far as the burn goes, hopefully I never get another cigar that burns as AWFUL as this one. The burn was a haphazard MESS very poor to ridiculous.----------------
Even with an easy draw, and a perfect burn, I think that this Egg isnt worth the price not even close. Very surprising from Drew Estates, which I consider to be a quality cigar maker.
