Review Notes: I took this gifted stick from the humi after about a month of rest. The Acid band is cheezy and not worth saving. The overall appearance was very good. There were small veins through the dark wrapper, not very toothy, and it had an oily appearance. It was tightly rolled and seemed consistent from head to foot as I gently squeezed it. My first surprise came when I smelled it...it was sort of a urinal deodorizer cake aroma. I used a punch through the cap with no problems. A pre-light draw made me almost recoil from the residual taste left on my lips. I tasted it again applying a bit more moisture, and it was sticky. I tried sampling further toward the foot, and there was the same impression...sticky sweetness that tasted like toothpaste. I found the aftertaste quite unpleasant, and hoped that the flavor would be neutralized by the tobacco. That didn't happen. Through the whole stick, the flavor of the tobaccos never gained advantage over the chemical flavoring which left saccharine, metallic aftertaste. As far as I am concerned, save your butane and just chew this one. If you dislike the taste of cigar tobacco enough to smoke these, then try a different hobby.
