Review Notes: From the start one side refused to burn. Pretty looking and firmly packed. Lots of smoke and pretty good leathery flavor. Throughout the incredibly long and slow burn the wrapper and binder did not burn as fast as the filler. I tried increasing the puff rate to no avail so I just had to constantly burn off the wrapper with my lighter. Value rating is artificially high due to pre-release sampler price. Will be aging the other 2 of these for a very long time to see if that will help the burn issue.

"1 Hour and 50 Minutes of Burn Issues"

Review Notes: Nice looking and firmly packed. Used a punch cutter at first and the draw was a little tight but flavors were good. From the start one side of the cigar did not want to burn and was canoing severely. After about an inch I used my double blade to cut off the cap and the draw became perfect. I was hoping this would help the burn issues. It did not. Throughout the rest of the cigar the wrapper and the binder burned much slower than the filler regardless of my puff rate. Only in the last 2 inches did the burn correct itself but at that point it got hot and harsh. Pretty tasty but more trouble than it was worth. I'll be aging the rest of these for a long while before I try again. Value rating artificially high becuase I got these in the pre-release sampler.
