The draw was fairly firm the entire with with some pockets where it eased up a bit but then returned back to firm. Not a bad draw, but I prefer not to have to work as hard as I did on each draw.
Overall, the experience was pretty standard. There were a few core flavors that were always there, cream, wood and cedar. The mineral flavor that came and went was a nice touch, but all together no real standout flavors that had me on the edge of my seat. The performance was pretty good, which is always a plus. As a Connecticut wrapped cigar, it definitely gave a fuller profile, so it’s not for the mild only smoker. Easily something that anyone that is into medium strength cigars could reach for, so it could fit pretty much anyone’s profile. Probably not something I would reach for again, but it could be something that is a good stepping stone for a typical mild smoker to expand their range.
