"Terrible smokes on two separate occasions I have just tossed the cigar they are not worth the effort."
These cigars look great, smell great and IF you get one that isn t hard as a rock or hard to draw it will burn perfect. Out of the last 8 I have smoked exactly zero to the the wrapper. Two have been tossed in the first third. Three I had to punch several times with a paperclip to get any sort of draw out of them. Three of them I smoked to 2/3 to 1/2 way and just gave up. The consistency score would be very high if I could indicate consistently not worth it. Taste is great IF you can get a good draw. So much potential with these smokes but I ve smoked enough of them over the last six months to feel certain they are at best an Alaska fishing gar to keep the bugs off or for mooching friends actually not even then . I would rather they get something they can enjoy smoking absent frustration.
I was hoping that aging in 68-69% humidity would soften these rocks up but it just isn t happening.
