Nothing much good to say about this cigar. It's hard as a rock to the touch. Cutting back the chisel reveals poor workmanship. Draw is tough and tight. Upon lighting, mild ashy flavor progresses very little. A few nuances of wood and sweetness come through - barely discernable. You puff and puff and nothing much happens. I gave up after the halfway point and had a horrible taste in my mouth the next day.
Bad cigar at any price. Not a "poor man's bargain" because it simply can't be smoked. Stay away. Don't bid on it at the auctions. Don't buy it when it's on sale.
