Review Notes: A well presented cigar in it's shiny yellow/gold foil and nice artwork on the double wrapper. Peeling off the foil I noticed a nice deep reddish brown Nicarauguan wrapper. All downhill from here. The Cigar felt a bit soft and mushy in a couple of spots. Prelight aroma was nice. The flavor, when I could notice it, was a sweet tobacco with a few notes of wood and spice. However, the big drawback was the uneven burn and loose draw making this stick smoke very hot which overpowered any of the smoothness of the sweet tobacco. Terrible hot and harsh aftertaste. At an MSRP of $5 I'd recommend staying away unless you can get these cheaply and age them a bit (mine had been in the box for about 4 months). You might get lucky as there could be some decent flavors when they are not smoking hot.
