Review Notes: THE GOOD: the cost averaged out to $3.49 each. THE BAD: the wrapper was split at the head, and after lighting split at the foot and halfway up the cigar. The split at the head caused air where the lips meet the stogie making the draw almost impossible. The taste was harsh leaving a stinging sensation in the back of the throat. It canoed out of control until I tossed it about halfway thru the smoke. I gave it all the patience I could possibly give. It did smooth out after the first inch or so and I did notice some decent flavor to it. I think who ever rolled this stogie was having a bad hair day, no question. I will assume it was a fluke because I know the Ghurka's are a super premium brand made from the best tobacco available. The Doble Maduro for example is one of the best cigars I have had. So I will try the remainder of the 5-pack and rate them again. THE UGLY: I wish I had taken a picture!
