Decent flavor but half of the box had draw and burning issues. You had to but at least an inch of the torpedo tip off the back to get the cigar to draw at all, it was so tight. They burned unevenly and required frequent attention. I don't know if I got a bad batch but this cigar was just not worth the trouble. There are better smokes for the money. Maybe Gurkha should make fewer different cigars than the 3 million they currently crank out but make the ones they sell properly?
