5 out of 5
Got a few in a sampler and they've sat at least a year. This is a very enjoyable, even-burning, reliable smoke. Tobacco with a hint of sweetness and woodsy aftertaste is about accurate, per CI's description. I don't pull coffee or nutty notes from this, really. It's not very complex, but it is a good smoke for a good price. This won't knock your socks off, but this is a 5 star stick at the price they go for. If you doubled the price, I might drop a star off. You can't go wrong, try a fiver.
