I purchased one of these fat stubby smokes from the Chester branch. They are quite mild compared to most things I smoke such as Monticristo No.4 and Siglo 2`s. However I have to say what a pleasant surprise this cigar was, very even burning, mild but full flavour and tasty to the very end. I normally gauge how much I enjoy a smoke by the band test - that is if I remove the band to smoke the cigar right to the very end it`s a good one and these little stubbies are! Excellent smoke, especially for the price. Worth a try.
