Wow – on so many levels. First and foremost this $30 stick delivered on it’s price, for what it is. It offered a rich smooth plentiful full bodied smoke with a long full finish. Excellent burn and draw with no issues. Flavors included leather, a sweet oil, hints of nuts, lots of deep heavy earth notes, pepper kicks and more. A strong word of warning – this is NOT for anything but the experienced smoker that likes a long lasting powerhouse. This is a knockout even on a full stomach and lasts 2 1/2 hours.
