My cigar-smoking wife and I took a vacation in Europe last month. I packed a bunch of these cigars, as I have liked them in the past. In Cologne, we stopped by our favorite, awesome cigar shop and stocked up on several Havanas. Off the top of my head, I remember that we got a Romeo y Julieta Churchill, a Monte #2, a couple of Monte #4's, a Hoyo Epicure, and a Hoyo Churchill. I am sure that I have forgotten some. My wife, my German brother-in-law, and I unanimously concluded that none of the Havanas were as tasty or as well constructed as this cigar. Not even close. In conclusion: this is an unsmokable piece of junk. Nobody else should buy any of them. I will selflessly buy them all up in the future.
