Took a chance on these. For reference, my favorites are Davidoff Yamasa, Escurio, Anniversario , Plasencia Alma Fuerte , San Cristobal QUintessence, Colloso , El Gueguense, and HighClere Castle to name a few. The Henry Clay warhawks Blew me out of the water. Smooth delicious creamy smoke. Compelte staple in my humidor, and for the price, a world beater. Please try one.
