2 out of 5
Most money I've ever spent on a cigar - worst experience I've ever had with a cigar. "Overglue" on wrapper, horrible construction, led to BOTH labels (skinny and wide) being glued to the wrapper! Carefully tried to take them off clean, but both peeled off chunks of the wrapper, exposing the filler. CI was "nice" about it, sending me a $10 gift certificate...but really, that just made it a little bit less of a total waste.
I have 2 more left - after close inspection, those look ok, but we'll see. As far as the little bit of taste I got with the troublesome glue bomb, I can tell it's a spicy, peppery, cedar taste that's probably pretty good on a well constructed example.
