"Not as expected"
I Love the Churchill, excellent smoke. The Toro however tastes like it has been treated with chlorine bleach. Something is wrong with this one.

"Updated review in the interest of Fairness"
I thought it only fair to post that these cigars have gotten better with some aging in the humidor,as hoped. Had one yesterday and it burned even, drew with no problems and lasted about what is considered normal for it's size. It's true with cigars as it is with wine, cheese and a good woman...they all get better with time.

"Hope these 'age' well !"
I stopped buying bundles awhile ago because of the inconsistency of the product and because you can now obtain some good quality cigars in the "5-pack" offerings. Still, trying to cut back on only smoking $3.00 and up cigars, I thought I'd give these guys a try. Lit one up as soon as they arrived. Tried another the next day. The cigar itself is soft & spongy to the touch, giving the impression that it's not packed to tight. I thought this would bode well for the draw but the effect was too extreme. Because there was so many "voids" in the construction, the cigar constantly went out. When it did stay lit it burned up the sides unevenly. The TORO size I ordered burned itself out in 1/2 hour, the burn rate was so fast; when most TORO's I smoke can last almost a full hour. Taste was so-so. I know not to expect the same quality of smoke from a cigar that clocks in at around $1.25 a smoke compared to the Fuentes, CAO's & Montesino's that are my usual brands so I'm gonna set these in the humidor for a little while and hope they get better with age.
