Review Notes: Even in gale force winds this little (7 month aged) guy smoked like a champ. I doubt these will win any beauty contests...unless you like rustic. (I do). Flavor was real nice (finally) as the sweet part of the flavor profile dominated the spice. Nothing mindblowing. Just Nice. Solid value for the $2.50 I paid.

Review Notes: An OK looking box pressed Nicaraguan maduro wrapper. Nice prelight aroma. Burn and draw were top notch. Flavor (again) left me wanting. I am a medium to fringe of full bodied cigar smoker. This cigar had a one demensional harsh note of pepper and paprika with an underlying woodsy tobacco flavor that just did not hit my palate right. This stick needed more of it's sweet tobacco to come through to offset the spice. It never did. The smallish ring guage may be the culprit. I see that I am in the minority here. Most love the flavor. Either I am not interpreting the flavors right, this is the flavor and I just don't care for it, or I have somehow managed to get 2 bad sticks. I think it's the latter. This smoke lasted about 50 minutes and the finish was nice. I will be back with this in a month or so. I want to like this cigar. Marination may help the others left from the 5 pack. I Paid $2.50/stick.

"Pepper & Paprika"

Review Notes: It's all in your perspective...for 3 bucks? This little powerhouse suprised me. Looked nice. Prelight aroma was nice. This stick hung out in the 'dor with other strong sticks for 4 months. Professional burn and draw. Tighty whitey ash. Gobs of thick smoke. Flavor was unfortunately a 1 demensional pepper and paprika hour and 15 marathon with very little change or depth. Finish was dull and almost non existent. Will try again in a larger ring size. Sometimes smaller sticks can't produce the flavor that their bigger brothers can.
