Review Notes: I like the 826 Slow Aged brand, especially the Glorioso and the Robusto. The Churchill was my least favorite as there were some significant burn and draw problems. This is a big cigar, in length and gauge and maybe that didn't help the construction difficulties. I had to puff on this baby constantly to keep it from going out. I guess it had a tight draw and just never seem to really get going and burn correctly. The taste was similar to the other cigars in this line, but for some reason it wasn't as flavorful, maybe due to the draw problems. Anyway, maybe more age will do the trick, as this had been in the humidor less than two months. Still, I think this is the weak link in the 826 line. It's a decent cigar for the price, but because of the construction problems, I'd go for the Glorioso or the Robusto.
