I had high hopes for this item because I think very highly of the Perdomo brand. I have smoked the Perdomo 2 Limited Edition 2008 cigars and enjoyed them very much. I got these on sale for a low price and thought I was getting a steal. The flavor was very ordinary and plain. The appearance was good and looked like a high quality item. However, it burned inconsistently and had to be corrected several times. It became a real hassle. Overall, I would have been upset at full price but just disappointed becasue I got them at a good price.
