"NOT BAD, BUT..."
This smoke was not bad but, I wasn't expecting the "back of the throat" burn on my first puff. I was nervous with construction as, every stick I pulled from the box felt as though it had a "soft spot". Once lit though, the burn was excellent and only went out once when I put it down for a bit. The ash was firm and strong. The first third was woody with a hint of spice that I wasn't expecting. The cigar seemed to mellow out into the second third with a thick sweet-aroma-filled smoke. It finished off well but the spice never seemed to leave which for me was the only drawback. Not a Nutmeg spice but more Peppery. Probably perfect with a morning cup-o-Joe!
