The Guardian of the Farm was picked up on a recommendation from a good friend of mine, I read a couple of reviews from other cigar review sites like Kohnhead.com and Halfwheel and they were positive so I picked them up! Boy was I satisfied, this cigar had great flavors and was smooth al the way to the nub. I had a nice amount of pepper up front but it mellowed nicely with some chocolate and coffee flavors. It did not have any burn issues and the ash held for me for about 3 inches. Great Smoke!!
