This cigar was very enjoyable with loads of flavor. Complex, with ever changing tastes, it demands attention. Mine had a huge construction flaw, and cracked open half way through and started to tear as it smoked. I worked fervently to salvage it and got it under control. Just shows you how tasty it was that I put so much effort into salvaging it.
After having read the other reviews here, I ordered a box of these. I wish I had returned them. Half of the sticks had cracks or splits in them straight out of the box. Out of the remaining 10, a couple split just after I lit them up. While the flavor of the remaining smokes was good, I won t be buying any more Mi Barrio cigars.
