Ordered the Test Flight last year. 1st cigar or two had unrefined and mediocre flavor. After 6 months, there was noticeable improvement. Had one today at 11 months and it was great! Didn't taste like a cheap cigar. Construction and burn were excellent. Mild/creamy flavor, hints of toffee. Great cigar for the price. Great to have on hand when you don't want to give away your expensive cigars. Buy some and stash away.
