Just had one of these and I really liked it! I've heard alot of mixed reviews on this stick, mainly because of draw problems. I guess I got lucky as mine burned nice and smoothly. The draw was a LITTLE tight but nothing that ruined my night. It wasn't amazingly complex but it was a tastey Wednesday Night smoke. See, I like to take a cigar out on my front step as I study to help me relax and just have a little fun so for occasions like tonight I tend to lean more towards "Everyday" smokes. I'm not gonna take a $10 stick out to study haha. So for what I needed it to do, it performed well. Smelled great, looked great, tasted great. No complaints. Again nothing that I'd put on my "must-buy-more" list but I got it in a sampler and I ended up really digging it.
