Just had a Jaimie Garcia (part of "My Father" collection ) And it was rough at first, but I've noticed that with alot of cigars, the first few min of it not being that great. But after a couple minutes it smoothed out and got to be a really good smoke ! About 1/4 of the way through i paired it with a blended coffee drink and I have to say it blew me away ! I will certainly pick up a few more. I think I'm too new to good cigars to do it justice with a description all I an say it that I'd recommend at least trying one your self and if you get a chance pair it with a coffee yum!
