Review Notes: Picked up a 5 pack from cigarauctioneer.com. These cigars look great. A nice box press, dark wrapper with one or two spots but otherwise perfect. That's about all thats good with this cigar. I smoked one a few days after getting them, and the draw was terrible. This one has been sitting for about three weeks. The draw was still terrible. Very tough to get smoke through. The taste was ok, mostly coffee with a slight nuttiness. Later on the nutty flavor picked up with some hints of wood. Draw improved slightly but still not even close to what it should be. Got a little bitter near the end with an almost gasoline like taste. Luckily this was only for a few draws. It had an uneven burn the whole way, needing 3 or 4 touch-ups. I smoked it for about an hour and a half and set it down with about 2 inches left. I'm quite disappointed with these. Will wait to see if some age will help but I'm doubtful.
