Review Notes: I have burned through quite a few of these sticks (and thrown quite a few away) and still can’t figure out if it is a descent cigar or a dyed tampon. For the most part they are clogged and do not smoke well; though aging does seem to help I agree. Some are mushy, have mushy spots and some solid and fairly well constructed. But there are a few in every bundle that are on the edge of excellence. If NP had any sense they would get a Quality Control department for obviously they have none currently and capitalize on this one, there is definitely potential here. These sticks are tremendously inconsistent; requiring constant touch-ups with a lighter. I’m not sure where anyone would get buttery, creamy, and nutty butter when it heats up, from a cigar. It is tobacco, smoke: an irritant! Not a dairy product. Thick, dense, leathery, smooth, raspy, cloying, yes! Hickory, bitter, woodsy, grassy, oak, earthy, fresh turned soil sure, but buttery, C’mon, don’t be a lemming! Chocolate Thundah? I don’t think so! Get this stick with the caveat that you may have to smoke through a few duds before you get a good one! Not sure if allowed but go for an Oliveros El Padrino instead.
