"all the flavors of the ashtray, in a wrapper"
Schizophrenia is a frightening, alienating, horrible disease, that takes years of medication and therapy to alleviate; so, they got the name right.
I received a few of these in my bag at the RMCF. I only made it a 3rd of the way through this before nubbing it, which is extremely rare for me.
Off the bat, the wrapper was a mottled, splotchy, toothy, veiny wreck. Small pieces of the wrapper had already begun to flake off. The pre-light aroma was that of barnyard and green hay. The toast was acrid and reminiscent of burnt toast and smoldering green wood.
Draw was easy enough, and smoke production was decent. One re-light 5 minutes in. Early signs of channeling (tunneling?) in the ash as the filler was very uneven. The retrohale was difficult as the smoke was very acrid and burned the nostrils. I picked up slight hints of over-roasted coffee as the smoke beat its way out of my nose. Aftertaste was reminiscent of a long night of smoking bargain cigarettes through an exhaust pipe. The taste lingered long after I brushed my teeth with holy water and repented for my herfing sins.
I wouldn't give this cigar to my worst enemy.
That being said, if You can make it through the entire smoke and give a more favorable review, you're a better man than I. As for me, I'll be in therapy for awhile after this one..
