I ordered these sticks since there is a connection to my surname. This review is not a reflection on CD, who process orders awesomely and provide good value. These cigars are a bit rough-hewn and strong tasting. Both these facts are ok, definitely not the refined presentation of an Ashton, but more rugged wrapper, with prominent veins - even the cap, with is short cone-shaped, as well as the closed foot, feels like it was made with a rustic-intent. Again, all good, I don't need elegance - and prefer function over form. The surprising fact was leeching of what appears to be tar where I had made the straight cut. The tar came oozing out of the center of the smoking surface, and I was able to wipe it onto fingertips, whereupon more oozed out. I don't think I've ever experienced this in a premium cigar before. I am not certain it was actually tar, but at a loss as to what else to name it. I took photos, but the site review function doesn't seem to allow uploads. The taste was still enjoyable, strong, earthy, but the oozing tar was troubling.
