The first half is good, but only because the grape (or any, I've tried several flavors) flavor is extremely intense. Once it dies down towards the 2nd half of the cigar, it doesn't taste very good, and it gets very hot. I've smoked quite a few of these, and every time I end up just ending them because they get so bitter.
Wonderful cigarillos. A little too long for a lunch break. Will try the little cigars next!
