RBeckom:I've had several of these and found them very enjoyable. If yours was bitter tasting you might need to let them rest A while. This should mellow it somewhat.
kaelaria:I let all my submissions rest at least several weeks. If they need more than that they should not have been sold, so it's a manufacturer's issue and a valid concerns so far as the review goes. Someone picking one up in a shop is there to smoke it, not stash it away.
The brand has had several blends and the more expensive ones I believe are different and no longer made.
Vulchor:uH oH-----Im calling you out here too lol. Had a box of these about a year or so ago...thought they were mild and fairly one dimensional---but for the price they would shoot way up in quality conidering. I likeld them enough to buy a box of the Arganese ML-3 which I thought was a damn decent stick, and great when again the price was considered. This is what I love about the hobby btw....same stick, likely a similar batch....but 2 different people and 2 toally different tastes. It either makes cigar smoking great or maddening...either way its a good time.
