The draw overall is nice from beginning to end. I had to cut more of the tapered head than I would have preferred, but I cut just enough so that it was still concentrated and not overwhelming. Smoke production was heavier on the start and very light on the end, but I never had a draw issue you could say.
The Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Eye of the Shark was not bad, but it was not great. For something like this, I expected something really special. In that sense you could say it was disappointing. While the vitola may be cool to many, I think it is a blend that would simply be better in a more traditional vitola. Make it a box-pressed toro or traditional torpedo and the cigar would improve, I think. Once the ring gauge on the cigar dropped and diminished towards the end, the blend became less enjoyable. If you only smoked the first third, you would put the cigar down and be very pleased with what you smoked. Unfortunately, there are still two thirds left after the opening.
