Yeah, based on the feel from the PerfecDraw through both ends, it wasnt a plug, just a really tight roll based on the feel, and fact that as thin as it is, the pressure from it going in caused me to hear the wrapper crackling a little bit, but fortunately never completely cracked.

I chalk it up to the unfortunate dud that everyone produces from time to time. Just part of the hobby.

You are right, were i not reviewing it, i likely would have given up before the first 3rd was even over, but since it was a review, i soldiered on to the nub.

I think it has a place as it reminds people that shit happens at any Factory.

I definitely plan to do a re-do of it soon before this review gets buried, as i would like to have them back to back if possible. Plus I remembered you mentioning Frank loved them and bought you out, so this is obviously a rare occurrence with these, and they deserve another shot, especially since I have 2 more.

Very fortunate that this one, you sent more of than any others, so i can try again and hopefully get a more representative review of them.

You definitely must have a nice, big, enviable collection, as aside from this one, all have been trouble free, delicious and all scored quite well. Plus if you are selling of as many as it seems you are to your friend Frank, and he keeps coming back, it says a lot about the quantity and quality of what you have, that I have been fortunate enough to have gotten a nice taste of and experience with.

Definitely many thanks for the opportunity and like Frank, i will be sad when they are gone. I have enjoyed experiencing well aged nc's, from the era before I got into cigars, and to use them to develop my reviewing skills and I have enjoyed reviewing them as it makes me really focus on every aspect of the cigar, and I had never really done full length reviews before in my 15 years of smoking

I friggin love cigars
