I imagine a cigar this long and skinny is really hard to roll consistently. I ve had four out of the box already, and so far they have been all over the place. The first one was so tight I could barely get smoke through it without chopping off the entire cap and pulling out some leaf bits. The next two were so loose that they tasted horrible like ash in your mouth. The fourth one was just right and very good. Hopefully, the first few were the only duds in the box and I have better luck with the rest. For a couple of dollars more you can get a box of the Petite Coronas which are much better than these. I would recommend those instead.
