One or two months in the humidor greatly improves the burn quality. For the price, these smokes are an excellent value. Meaty taste of the Brazilian wrapper is quite good. The labels on these are works of art.

"Not bad for the $"
I'd have to agree That this cigar has burn issues. I've only smoked two, so I can't really speak to consistancy. I score it well on all other catagories though. [pause] I just had to go out and puff on it again to keep it from going out. I guess you'll get that from any Oscuro wrapped Liga at this price.

"Reblend is much better"
Ok, so we all agree that the original had good flavor but did not burn very well. However, after ordering a fiver of the reblend I have to post this review. The reblend amps the flavor up a bunch. The burn line was not perfect but I didn't have to touch it up once. I'm glad I didn't give up on this brand. At least they are willing to keep improving their cigars instead of just releasing new blends.

"Good, but Problematic"
Well, it's a fine cigar, but it has several problems. It's flavor, appearance, and draw are all very quite good. The taste is okay, and the consistency is tolerable. However, the burn is rather poor. In order to keep it lit, you must draw constantly, which made for a quick and disagreeable smoke. I would NOT advise buying it in bulk. You can buy the more pleasing house-brand Famous cigars for less price and better quality.

Got 2 of these in a sampler. Both had real trouble keeping a good burn. They needed touchups about every 10-15 minutes.
