Review Notes: Construction looked okay but after lighting it up I knew this wasn't going to be a relaxing smoke. It was going to require a ton of work. This thing was rock hard, way too tight, and there was little to no ability to draw off of it. I repeatedly had to use a paper clip to clear space. I've never experienced a cigar so overly tight which was too bad. Flavor was very unique (first CC for me), it was very sour kind of like sour cream or kimchi or something. In fact I woke up in the middle of the night with the odd sour flavor still in my mouth. I was gifted this from someone who knows their cigars so I'm confident this was a legit smoke. Maybe I got a bad one but with the construction issues and not overly complex or enjoyable flavor I have to give it a thumbs down. If that sourness is what people call twang, just dump some sour milk on a NC and then voila, you have a CC. I certainly will not write off an entire nation's products but this intro to them was a big let down. I've read that CC QC is a bit lax and they are often hit or miss. Hopefully mine was just a miss. Based on the other reviews it seems I did.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (10) No (14)
