First and foremost when compared to Backwoods. The GyV 1882 Sweet has some quality assurance Backwoods lack. All 40 of the GyV's I smoked had a proper wrap, none too tight, falling apart, and no holes. The flavor is slightly less sweet than the BW Sweet Aromatic which I also prefer.
WOW.. I love it. So does everyone else who bums one off of me. IMO,Its a much better smoke than Backwoods. Better quality control as well. Rarely do I need to correct the burn. Very good construction, taste and draw. My favorite cheroot.
Switched from Backwoods after getting fed up with worthless quality control. Loose wrap, tight wrap, torn wraps. I ve now been smoking these for years with only the occasional or bad torn wrap. My last few orders over the past 6 months, I ve noticed these cigars are now as hit or miss as the backwoods. Too long a time to think it might be just a bad run. Emailed GyV, but no reply...Time to start looking again...
