The draw was too tight. Although I did not feel any tightness around the cap/head, the tightness of the draws called for increased suction. Luckily, the cigar never burned hot.
This was a well executed, smooth, flavor forward cigar. The soft but flavorful notes were well balanced and finished clean. It’s worth noting this was the third sample I smoked out of the same box. Sample one was smoked 3 days after delivery, sample two and three smoked two weeks after delivery. There is inconsistency within the box as sample two had horrendous burn issues requiring three re-lights and purges, giving flavors that were incredibly harsh and charred. In other words, it was garbage. But taking the majority of the samples, I feel confident to provide this particular review.
