I stopped smoking cigars for several years. Recently I took a trip back home to the Florida keys and stopped by my old hang out in Key West..the cigar shop! These were recommended by the shop owner, who is well trusted. I only got through half a stick before I bought a box. They pull great, burn even and have a fantastic flavor.
Of the 20 cigars, 13 split at the foot during clipping. I used a Zino, an Xicar, a punch, and a razor. After buying 20 cigars, I smoked three. taste was OK, nothing special. But the construction had a strong note of frustration, followed by hints of anger, disgust and loathing. I can not believe the ratings this cigar has posted!
