Review Notes: Construction was good, burn was good, draw was a little tight for nearly the entire cigar, but this thing was a major disappointment in the flavor department. Mostly bitter, very very faint hints of cocoa nibs but for the most part it was simply a bad cigar. It certainly wasn't full flavored, it really had almost no flavor and the minor tastes I got were unpleasant. Unfortunately I was gifted this very long vitola and felt it was an obligation to give it my full attention. I wanted to put it out after 1", and should have. This had more than 2 years of age on it which means there is no room for improvement in my book. It's from General, which seem to be experts on flavorless cigars. As you might expect with a Cameroon wrapper, it was very thin and just looking at it wrong caused pieces to flake off. On such a long cigar, it left a lot of surface area to get damaged. Never affected burn, certainly never made it taste any better, but just another inconvenience. My girlfriend was enjoying her own Cameroon wrapped Oliva G, which is half the price, construction in equal or better, and 10 times the flavor and value. This is just another General brand to add to the "never to try again list".

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (13) No (12)
