3 out of 5
Flavor 7/10, body 4/10, construction 8.5/10, score 5/10. Why the low score? This is shredded "Cuban sandwich" tobacco, not long leaf. The taste and burn are OK, but the experience leaves something lacking. Be prepared to eat jibs. I don't know how to put into words why the experience is different from a real cigar, but it is. Maybe because it lacks complexity? It kind of felt machine made, like a cigarette. I'd want to give a newby a real cigar, I want to pass out fine smokes at family reunions, and in my backyard I want to enjoy the complexity of a real long leaf hand made, and these don't really fit in those occasions. They are tasty though, I'll give them that.
