This low cost stick was featured in the latest Ccom newsletter and I just happened to receive some this week. As a guy that smokes 3-4 sticks a day I am always looking for a good low cost stick to control expenses some. I have to say I was quite impressed with the Calle Ocho. Great construction and burn, nice flavor but what really struck me was the long finish on the retrohale. It is absolutely fabulous. I will be stocking plenty of these for everyday sticks at work. Give them a try if you are looking for a budget stick, well worth the money.
