Cool IPCPR Golfers Blend Review

I would like to start by stating this is the last stick I have to review and want to thank the Mods for allowing me to do so.

This stick is pale brown almost like a manila envelope and 7 x 50 something. The wrapper had a tear at the foot end of about one inch and has not affected the burn. The wrapper is dry in finish and the cigar is firm. The filler is a whole lot darker than the wrapper.

Prelight sniffy sniff I got nothing but tobacco. No hay, no barnyard, just tobacco.

Cold draw I got more tobacco and toffee on the palate.

First third, crack in the wrapper has had no effect and this is a mild to medium cigar that has a harsh finish,not a a pepper bite, just harsh almost bitter.

Halfway, Gives off a lot of smoke, ash is white and flaky but has held on. I am tasting charred wood and not a lot else. Burn is pretty straight and no touch ups required.

Final third, The burn is a little uneven but hasn't been an issue, still putting out tons of smoke. Still getting charred wood and hints of cedar.

Conclusion. Based on the name alone I would have passed if this was at a B and M, it reminds me of a bundle brand from an online store. While it wasn't bad to smoke it was not my cup of tea. Too one dimensional and mild.
I rate it at a solid seven
