I really enjoyed this cigar from beginning to end. The flavor was consistant all the way through. However, I did have to relight it more than once when I had not sat it down for more than a minute. I should mention this was not purchased through Ccom. I've not had any problems like this from their sticks! This is one I'd really like to try again and/or hear more feedback on before I draw any final conclusions. But despite having to relight it a couple of times, overall it was very satisfying!
