What they have to say about the cigar:
Talk about all over the place…. Rolled too hard, horrible start, multiple corrections, and then when it DID finally open up, it wasn’t nearly as dark as I had expected. On inspection, it looks like your normal maduro or oscuro type wrapper, but it is actually a Mexican San Andres- which threw me through a loop since that’s not one I normally encounter. The wrapper was nice- but the guts were just not there. It was like getting a piece of cake and then realizing that they used cool-whip instead of real cream frosting on it.
