Came in perfect condition. Taste was OK, mild to med.
The cigar did not develop any more flavor from start to finish, so it felt a bit dull. As a present to non cigar smokers, nobody complained! I would recommend it and buy again, because for the occasion it's meant for, it was great! Thanks CI.
I am very new to smoking "real" cigars, we used to pick some cheap sticks up for camping trips etc. I found these when we were expecting our first and I really wanted to hand them out and celebrate my sons birth with friends. I was very happy with the mellow taste and burn but they seemed a little dry when they arrived and since I didn't have a humidor yet I tried the wet cloth in the bag trick to re-humidify them and they were definitely better. I would reccomend them for someone new but you should get them in a humidor like any stick right away. If you like me and just starting out and grab theseand may have them for a bit get your self a humidor because you will be hooked and want to try more!
I've found over the years that companies that sell the "It's a Boy! / It's a Girl" banded cigars, will go the extra mile. I've always attributed this to the premise that new cigar smokers are likely to smoke one of these and the company gets a one shot opportunity to bring the uninitiated into the fold. After all....if they're turds you won't find the virgin cigar smoker going back. On the other hand, provide a good mellow smoke and you may end up with further sales. These follow that thinking and will not disappoint. Leave these in a the humidor for at least two weeks and you'll find these to be a fine mild cigar that's easily worth their 2.50 asking price. Well suited to the long time smoker that appreciates a mild cigar with good tobacco flavor, these always burn perfectly right down to the nub with complexity building throughout. Attention to detail is obvious on inspection and never a soft spot or erratic burn. Just a really nice smoke! Always great in the morning with a good cup of Java.
