I got this in a sampler and had read good reviews so I was eager to try it out. The one i got was in immaculate condition when I received it, but it was hard as a rock. Literally. I had read that these particular cigars were generally on the "loose roll" side and and most reviews described them as being a bit "spongy feeling" so I was curious about that. Into the humidor it went. Well it's been about 3 weeks and I was trying to decide on a smoke last night and thought I'd fire this one up. Upon inspection, it had a crack in the wrapper at the foot and it was still rather hard feeling. When I cut it, the wrapper came apart at the head, but the binder seemed to be holding up, so I went ahead and lit her up. When I lit it, the crack at the foot expanded and the end of the cigar kind of burst. I kept puffing though...the cigar burned very unevenly at first...but once it burned past that crack it evened out and started to be quite the enjoyable smoke. About 5 or 6 draws later however, the wrapper started coming apart at the head and rendered it unsmokable at that point. I only got a few good draws off this stick. Didn't really get a chance to notice any flavor, but it had a good draw (once it got past that crack) and it was very mild and smooth smoke. I think I'll pick up a five pack of these and let them rest in the humidor for month or maybe two and then try it again. I think I just had some bad luck with the one I got. I'm hoping for better luck next time, because at this price, this would be a good daily smoker...providing the problems I had aren't the norm.
