This goes to show it ain't all about Cuba baby. This goes to show it ain't all about Cuba baby. Five people (on our annual Canadian excursion) reviewed this smoke, five people were thoroughly unimpressed. One nice side note, nobody was able to guess what they were smoking without the band, and only 1 of the 5 guessed it was Cuban. Although properly humidified, the majority of the samples had burning problems, one was hot and burnt uneven, while the others all mentioned issues with staying lit. Flavor varied throughout the samples, but nobody thought much about this cigar, and only one reviewer gave it higher than a C rating. I don't want to give the impression that stomachs were being pumped, and lungs were collapsing, but you should have seen the faces when they were told what this was. You would have thought I just told them their Yugo was actually a Mercedes. Flavor ratings varied across the board, a couple folks disliking the smoke, but the majority ho-hum on the little island treat. After this little review session, I definitely believe the "Cuban" name has an effect on the ratings. Although...this cigar has been dropping like Al Gore's presidential hopes in our ratings. Vital Statistics: Churchill - Length = 7 RG = 47 Wrapper = Cuba Filler: Cuba Binder = Cuba Estimated Cost = N/A in USA, ~$20.00 outside US
