"canoe burn on 3 out of 4"
Flavor is fine, not good even considering the price. The real tragedy is in the consistently (3 of 4 sticks)uneven burn. Bummer.

"Best $2.00 stick anywhere"
Never unhappy with an AB cigar. Alan Rubin does his job well. If you are on a budget and want a wonderful Med. to Full bodied smoke, this is truly unbeatable. I bought the test flight sampler with a little hesitation because of the price but thist is another winner. Fresh hay, hints of oak, cedar and a bit dry on the palate at times which I like. The wrapper and construction surprised me as well. Very pretty reddish brown wrapper. If there was one thing even remotely off it was just a hair soft but by no means a concern.

"superb everyday cigar; never boring"
These are tough to beat if you get them at auction or cigarmonster.com. Aside from the price, they make a good everyday cigar because they're never boring and unidimensional. The taste is complex, changing from spicy to vanilla-y to earthy to woody. My bundles have been a tad bitterish upon arrival. But, a month in the humidor takes care of that. My preference is for the larger ring gauges. The smoke is creamy. The burn is even. The aroma is satisfying. The ash is a little flakey and average in terms of firmness. But the construction is solid and definitely not underfilled. Me happy.
