Giving this beaut a once over we noticed not a single flaw on the samples smoked, and in addition surprised by the amazing marbling on the wrapper. Warranted or not, we usually anticipate some sort of burn issue as history typically repeats itself with box pressed cigars, but boy were we pleasantly surprised by this one. A perfect burn coupled with a fantastic draw, this cigar was already off to a great start. Then we have the flavor. Could it match the pace of such great construction and burn? Rhetorical? In this case, yes. What a superb flavor. Admittedly it’s been a while since we had smoked this cigar, but our initial experiences all came rushing back, reminding us how truly great this cigar is from all aspects. It doesn't command a hefty price tag, only having to pay $8.00 per stick. That is a damn good value in our eyes, and certainly makes this smoke a perfect treat.
Hot Ticket Score
You can get your hands on this cigar for just around $8.00 which makes it a pretty damn good deal. There isn’t anything challenging about this cigar, so in terms of recommendation, but really feel there are some out there that may find this cigar to not be in their wheelhouse. If you do grab one, do yourself a favor… Drink it in the morning with a good cup of coffee. You won't regret it.
Old world for a new generation of cigar smokers.
