Review Notes: Bought a box. Smoked one after 20 days of box time. As previously reviewed, it was mostly smooth, flavorful and smoked like a champ. I've smoked 2 more around the 50 days of aging mark. They were both much harsher than the first and had minor construction issues. The "good" stick was in the 68% box. The other two were in the 72% box. The ones in the 72% box may may have taken on moisture too quickly and aged improperly thereby adversely effecting taste and construction. From what others have written, and I experienced with my first properly aged stick, I would still reccomend laying down a box from CI or at least nabbing a 5 pack from c-bid. Either way don't pay more than $2/stick and I think in the longrun you'll be happy with these. Just be careful at what humidity you store them at. I'll do an average refview for the last two I smoked.

"Outstanding Value."

Review Notes: Bought a box on the blind from C.I. based upon this sites recommendations. I let them age for about 3 weeks before trying the first one. It was very nice. It looked great, burnt and drew just fine. There were a few harsh edges to the taste towards the end but further aging should help take these edges off. The mostly smooth, rich, flavors were of mocha and spice with a little chocolate within a slightly sweet tobacco base. Body seemed mostly medium, sometimes mild. For $2 a throw a no-brainer here. These should get better with proper aging.
