How could you not try a cigar called “Animal Cracker”? The name alone is worth giving it a go! 

The cigar itself has a deep, dark, rich color which is visually appealing, however it did have some minor construction flaws, but weirdly that was part of the appeal for this cigar.  That of course being a sensible thing to say specifically because none of the defects affected the burn of the cigar. 

The draw was a bit loose but also produced heavy amounts of smoke, which makes the airy inhale a bit of a moot point and all things considered, more loose is better than too tight.. Unlike some things in life. 

Initially I was turned off my the aroma and flavor at the starting line. It was like someone taped a dandelion under my nose. Thankfully the heavy floral dissipated and transformed into a lovely savoriness balanced with an earthy undertone  that remained consistent throughout the remainder of the cigar.

 All in all it was very palate pleasing!

This little cracker will set you back about $8.00 which makes it a good buy, and one that may have you switching from saltines permanently.
