guys, I bought a 5 pack of these about 3 years ago and smoked them intermittently throughout the first 2 of the 3 years. I was not impressed at all. They had very little pleasing flavors and burn issues. It amazes me how these get good reviews (CA reviewed them as a 93 ratingback in 2001). Since there are so many good comments about this cigar my advice is to pick up a 5 pack or a few singles before you commit to a bundle.
