Review Notes: I got a 5-pack of these from cigarbid.com and had very high expectations. True, it was a beautiful and impressive looking cigar. I have also thouroughly enjoyed all Don Linos I've smoked in the past. However from the time I lit this thing, it had about as much flavor as a Tampa Nugget! About an hour later when I was into the 1/2 way point, there were some fleeting notes of Cameroon, but the finish was completely flat and the flavor never really changed. I take that back...there was NO FLAVOR! This thing tasted like I was smoking a paper bag. The wrapper was completely devoid of any oils and was as I said like a paper bag. The burn was inconsistent, but that could be b/c of the wind and the draw was o.k via my punch hole. I couldn't believe out of all the different cigars I purchased at cigarbid.com, that I paid the most for these and they were the worst. Of course, it is entirely possible that I just got a dud. I still have 4 sticks left, but I don't think I can bring myself to try another one of these for a while. I can't even believe I smoked the whole thing and didn't just throw it out, but I kept thinking it would change for the better. Oh well...You live and you learn. On the positive note, the band was pretty cool.
