Review Notes: I saw these sitting on display at the local tobacconist and decided to give one a try. After all, they were only $2 or so, and I'm always looking for a smoke that I can enjoy without having to sacrifice my precious time. Sadly, this won't be one of them (the Hemingway Short Story still holds the crown). This dark, slightly rough looking stick took a LOT of effort to light. Once I got it going, a half dozen relights were required to keep it burning. Early on, there were hints of earth and vegetal notes, but not much else. The draw was VERY tight; not quite "sucking a golf ball through a straw", but it required more effort than it should. Halfway through, it picked up some spiciness and the vegetal notes died down a little bit, but that's about it. The finish is fairly long and average tasting at best. Perhaps I got a dud... I don't know. This didn't wow me in any way. Your mileage may vary...
