Cory - Firm but light in the hands. silky smooth wrapper. loved the closed foot as well.
Chris - closed foot. Mildly squishy. Looks just like the maduro
Cory - 3-4 puffer. It was a challenge to keep it staying lit in the first two thirds. great even burn line
Chris - 1-3 puffer. Pretty consistent burn.
Cory - I really liked the rush of flavor from the closed foot. Its the same start I loved in the maduro. This cigar is super smooth all the way through and even with multiple flavor changes, albeit subtle, its incredibly well balanced. One of the most well balanced cigars I have smoked in a while, and although Foundation announced a price increase on the Charter Oak line last year, this cigar still comes in sub $6.00, making it a VERY good value overall. I simply don't know how they do it.
Chris - Definitely looks exactly like the maduro! You know why? Because it takes exactly like it. Seriously a great cigar all joking aside. A complex tasting blend that transitions into smooth and rich flavors that leaves you wanting even more after an hour experience. For just pennies more than the maduro, this one is a real good bargain pick with a premium-blend experience. The best of both worlds.
