Got these in yesterday and fired one up. Great mild flavor, easy draw, and even burn all the way down. Well worth the special price. Hope they don t go up. Bonus also, that the came in humidor style great smelling cedar box.
I feel for anyone that bought these for the for anything more than what I paid for them, an although these seem like a good deal at less than $50 a box I’m not sure I wouldn’t take them if they were giving them away. I am only five deep into the box I purchased, but given that the performance of those five were exactly the same, I am confident in my review. Appearance – This cigar looks wonderful with very few, small veins, there were no blemishes that I could see and the medium brown wrapper falls somewhere in the sweet spot between leathery and oily. The pre light earthy smell lead me to believe I was in for a treat... but unfortunately that will be the only good thing that I have to say in this review. Let’s group a few of the normal aspects of the review… Construction, Burn, Draw and taste, all of which affect one another. The construction was not good at all; canoeing, tunneling, runners you name it reared its head in these first five cigars. The burn and draw caused by the construction problems made it impossible to evaluate the taste. These were originally designed for the European market and I say let the Europeans have them.
