Review Notes: After reading some of these recent rave reviews, I figured I'd revisit this smoke after five months of humi time. Scotty's tasting notes from Feb. are right on. It's a nice blend. But I'm still having the construction issues I had first time around. They're suspiciously lightweight in the hand, and sure enough they burn hot even when nursed. It's as if they've all been hit with a draw poker. Perhaps storage at a higher RH would slow down the combustion? I dunno. I fear there's not much cure for underfilled sticks, which is a shame given that the flavor is well above average.

"Worth a try, but just okay"

Review Notes: A thick, dry, veiny wrapper with occasional light spots. Easy draw, though they're consistently underfilled, making the burn unforgiving. Heats up and/or goes out quickly. Annoying. Flavors are decent -- mild-to-medium body, a little nutty, some sweet wood, and enough spicy zing to keep things interesting. In sum, it's just okay. On one hand, it's nice to see a reasonably priced DR wrapped smoke (that's why I bought). On the other hand, you do get what you pay for.
