The first one of these I smoked burned so crazily it was impossible to pay any attention to anything else, like flavor etc. Maybe it it hadnt rested sufficiently or maybe i just got a bad one. The second one burned with no real issues, didnt have to be touched up etc.This review is about the second one i smoked.It was ok. The taste was ok, a little bitter at times with somewhat of a bitter after taste. The first couple of inches were good, some hints of sweetness, the second part was ok, nothing special, i didnt smoke too far into the last third, partly because this is a pretty strong stick for the a.m.Anyway, its worth the money certainly, i might order them again, but im not certain of that.
