First puff I got dried cherry or raisin and leather..first third lots of tolerable red pepper on the rear of the tongue LOL I can feel it I my left ear but it fades. What a tingle!
The draw is slightly tight but not bad. I had to use a draw tool to open it the way I like it. Construction is solid. There's a slight breeze out here so it made my burn wonky. Not a cigar issue.
I recommend this brand.
