The draw was perfect, with just the right amount of resistance that I prefer.
Overall, the Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Velvet Rat started nicely, but became average by the second third as the flavor profile was pretty basic. This cigar doesn’t have the vibrance it once did, which is understandable due to its age. The burn issue was a bit maddening as there didn’t seem to be anything that was obvious to cause the cigar to go out so frequently, maybe just the heavy tobaccos not burning as efficiently as they should. If you have some of these, smoke them, as time isn’t going to make them any better.
