Decent smoke to try

Wow it has been a while since I have smoked an Epic cigar, so reviewing the Epic Maduro had me more energizing than most. I will start with my general take first. The cigar was good, but not great. I found the flavors overall to be a bit disjointed but individually very pronounced and pleasant. To me it's like having all the right ingredients but not the correct recipe That being said it's $8.50 so by all accounts its very affordable, and that is a big plus for this cigar. I will say this cigar has got me thinking more about Epic cigars again.
