"Average at best"

Review Notes: TO me this is just your average cigar that I would not buy if the price was over $2.00 a piece. I will admit it has a fairly good taste to it when I could keep it lit long enough to smoke it, The look is nice but I had so many burn issues with this stick that I would probably not invest in a bundle of them, at least not for the MSRP. Luckily I got this as a gift so I didn't have to pay to find this out.

"A nice American stick for the Fourth of July"

Review Notes: It ain't the 4th of July until I toast an USA-made stick, right? I bypassed the usual Miami suspects and reached for an OPK. No, these aren't made in CT anymore (Cigar Envy notes that production has moved to the DR), but this five year-old bundle was born in Hazzardville. Tangy wood and coffee with a touch of leather. Somewhat strong despite the absence of spice. The wrapper is listed above as CTBL, but it is actually Nic. corojo from the late 90s, according to the brand's creator. Worthy of mention only because the OPK tastes something like the GH Corojo #5, minus the peppery tingle. The only downside in the flavor department is that it flattens out considerably in the last third. Construction is impeccable. Sorry to hear about Haddo's unlucky experience, but I can say I haven't run into a plugged one (in just under three bundles now). An unheralded US-made gem that stands up well vs. its better known cousins from Miami.

Review Notes: The one I did get to draw was outstanding. Rich taste of Coffee and Leather. A good amount of Nic also. The next to I cut were plugged. For the price I would expect better construction.

"Not as good as the robusto, but..."

Review Notes: Still pretty good. The wrapper on these OPKs must be where the action's at, because the smaller the gauge, the better the smoke. The initial leathery goodness is worth the price of admission, though it doesn't evolve much as smoked. Try the OPK robusto first (see reviews).
