Someone gifted this stick to me..construction is great with the exception of a tree branch in the middle. Band looks great and the wrap is beautiful. I left it sitting in my humi for 3 months before i attempted to smoke it like all my smokes with cellophane off. Requiring attention to stay lit this stick didn t like to be sat down..one relight confirmed this.taste over all is good if you like a complexity and full bodied smokes. Im smoking it as I write this review. Most likely will nub it but will not buy any.. Burn is un even, even as I turn & puff to try and control. My beverage is a honey sweetend grean tea. V cut and it is the robusto.28 yrs smoking quality sticks and a well know dojo member gadgetguy313 if your not a dojo member your missing the other half of cigar enjoyment! stay smoky my B&STOL s
Got a single as a freebie in my last order. Perfect price. Started out very bland then quickly turned to harsh and bitter. Burn was very uneven. Construction was poor due to a large stem in the wrapper on my sample. Went out after less than a minute without a draw. Gave up on it about half way through. You need to take this review with a grain of salt as I m new to cigars and am trying different ones. So far I like Macunudo Crew Royale and Java by Drew Estate. I have tried many others but this Cruz Guild is the only one I have given a score of 0/5.
