Construction issues

Anyone else having any issues with Black Works Maduro Killer Bee and The Hornet? Tough to keep lit, and then starts burning a hole in the wrapper about and inch above the cherry? Love their cigars, but this is frustrating! Been about a month now, happened 3-4 times.

    I haven't bought those in a while, but hopefully, they came from your local shop and they can help you out.

    I have a half box of killer bee I have been avoiding because they won’t stay lit.

    Yeah it’s been a topic on vherf several times. They just don’t seem to want to burn lately.

    I dry box virtually everything from them anymore. Makes it hard to be a black label ho

    I sit on most of their offerings for months before attempting to smoke, and also dry box some.

    I hide my incoming boxes from myself for as long as I can in the Winedor before breaking into them.

    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.

    I've not had any construction issues with the petite corona size of the Killer Bee.

    Burned a hole and won’t stay lit.

    Probably! lol But it’s only these, and Killer Bee Maduro. Still love most of their smokes. For about a month now.
