I am primarily a bold and spicy enthusiast. But I just can?t do bold and spicy before noon. I found myself wasting half of my more expensive sticks. I have tried a few budget sticks and found these medium body sticks fit the bill perfectly. Decent flavor, medium strength, consistent burn and a little pepper/spice in the retrohale. At an every day budget price, these sticks will be my every day budget smokes. If you gotta throw it down and maybe pick it back up, no worries at a little over a buck a stick.
