A buddy of mine gave me five of these little beauties he had laying around. Must admit that in my haste, I smoked the first four prematurely due to not giving them enough time to "ripen" in my humidor. The fifth however, was a charm and an absolute delight. Regardless, they were all excellent smokes. I'm a big fan of Rocky Patel in any form and the Nordings are definitely now among my favorites. As for burn, it was even and flavorful all the way through. Can't wait to order more and will definitely wait until they're all ready next time.
As a pipe smoker this cigar is one of my favorites. It has everything I love in a cigar and a hint of pipe tobacco to it that gives it an extra amazing taste. I'd say it's a must try at least once for anyone!
I tried one and didn't like it at all. It left a bad aftertaste and burned nearly 3/4" further down one side for the entire smoke. I tried touching up the burn several times, but it didn't help. This is just one man's opinion and one cigar. I would like to hear what others think.
