Review Notes: I sampled several of these from a small cabinet of twenty five. These are packed unbanded and tied with a ribbon into a small wheel. The wrappers appear top notch with nicely finished caps. A pinch and a wiff showed the roll to be firm and the tobacco to be rich. Lighting was uneventful but the draw on the dozen or so I've sampled from this box ranged from just tight enough to be annoying to just short of plugged. This did not work itelf out as the smoke progressed. The problem could not be corrected by massaging and I have resorted to storing them dry (62%-65%) and starting each smoke with a few quick pokes from either side with a toothpick in order to salvage the box. The flavor profile is medium to light. I could taste light coffee (columbian), cedar, and pepper. The taste on most of them was negatively affected by the poor draw. The smell of the burning tabacco indicated that they would have been delightful if only I could have gotten more smoke into my mouth. The ones that drew adequately after poking were exquisite and complex when smoked slowly to compensate for the hotter burn of dryer than useual storage. In closing, the blend and quality of the leaves used to make these are obviously first rate. My rating reflects the issues with my particular examples and all things being equal, I look forward to sampling a few of these from a better box.
