Review Notes: I'm with ElkTwin... I sure wish I had one more old chest of these things. Left in the chest for a while, these things took on more and more sweet cedar to go with their creamy, peanutty core. They became a near-perfect morning smoke. Certainly among the best CT Shade wrapped smokes I've had. Sadly, they are not what they were. This newer incarnation in boxes of 20 still look great, with a wrapper that is more brown than the golden tone of the originals. The construction/draw is okay, if a little firm, but the taste doesn't have that profound sweet woodiness and occasionally verges on tartness. Who knows? Maybe these new ones will taste like the old ones a few years from now. For now, they're thoroughly mediocre. My scores, BTW, pertain to the new ones.
