I bought a bundle of MOW 2nds about a month ago and must say there is no difference in taste quality or burn from the firsts. I smoked right of the truck. I couldn't wait and found that the cigar was a little dry but still burned perfect. I smoked one last night and found the flavor had increased and everything I love about MOW was doubled def a good aging cigar. The tingle through the nose was a little less then I remembered but did show signs of leather and a deep smokey taste that kept it interesting. On The finish the cigar did have a increase in strength without being bitter. A cigar that lasted a good hour and a half that was a joy to smoke. I will def buy again there that good.
