This 5.5×44 stick offered a medium body but medium-full strength experience. Burn was excellent, draw was on the firm side and excellent all the way down. Flavors were simple, offering one major flavor at a time, changing near the half way point from slightly sweet earthy to a little woody. Finish was short and clean with a bit of a pepper kick to enjoy only on the finish. Burn time to just past the band was 1:30 where it started getting a little warm.

This 5.1×43 stick offered a surprisingly long cool smoke time of 1 hour to the band! If you prefer your smoke a little warmer you could easily take it another 15 min. Burn and draw were flawless all the way down, with a light grey ash dropping every inch. Flavors included a silky smooth and rich woodiness to a creamy and slightly sweet roasted nut. The body was mild-medium with a short clean finish. Excellent for a morning smoke! . This review was sponsored by:
