I have been getting these for a number of years and I have to say that the quality of them has gone down so much that I cannot order them ever again. I am trying to smoke the 5th one from my latest bundle right now. It wont stay lit. It gives off hardly any smake. It burns a hot hole burrowing through the center, but I can't puff on it and get smoke to draw. This has been an ongoing problem with these for 6 months now. I have started purchasing bundles of other cigars in the hopes that it was a bad batch. Well, they are now just bad, and extremely frustrating cigars, and no longer the decent smokes they were last year and prior. I told customer service about this, and no one cared or has done anything, obviously. Do NOT waster your money on these. Get something else. Now, I just need to figure out if I should just throw away the remaining 15 cigars from this bundle to save myself the let down and frustration of trying to smoke an unsmokable cigar. I mark the consistency a 4, because they now do suck consistently. So there is that....

At times these have been less than ideal, but overall I find them a nice cigar at a very affordable price. I have shared them with my friends who smoke much higher priced cigars and they have enjoyed them and been surprised at the price.
