"A Great Maduro"
Go this as a freebee when I ran into the rep. I thoroughly enjoyed this one all the way through. Full flavor, good draw and good construction, Its definitely a keeper.

"A Dark (Butt Ugly)Kind of Love"
As a Big Fan of RYJ, I always enjoy a new variance on the brand. This little smoke was superb in its rich nutty/woody flavour, and I enjoyed it alot, However its wrapper may be adressed as 'rustic" or maybe even "BUTT UGLY"
On inspection of several other sticks in the box
there were several wrappers that came damaged or a little frayed from the get go. ,
However this could (a most likley will be) a small lapse in quality limtied to just this batch.
If your used to the fine contstruction of other RYJ products, you will still have that. But on the outside at least she's pretty rough looking.
