This 5×50 stick from BestCigarPrices.com features a dark tan very firmly packed wrapper with a dry toothy fine sand paper feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and pungent hay and manure aroma. First light reveals a slightly snug draw with good smoke output, showing medium bodied flavors of a slightly sweet and very smooth oily tobacco with a short peppery finish. The first third shows the same draw flavors while the finish gets much bolder and longer adding a big pepper and spice kick to the mix. The 1/2 way point comes at 30 minutes with flawless performance and very similar flavors so far. the draw sweetness goes way down while the pepper and spice finish combo mellows. There is a touch of strength coming in, we’ll see how it ends up. Finishing at the hour mark it kept the same great burn all the way down with no further changes. Thank you to BestCigarPrices.com for sending this in for review!
