Jade Beauty

Dr. Chuck on 08/09/15

I an SOOO glad I gave these a try! They are indistinguishable from the Macanudo Baron de Rothschild Jade. They do NOT have that insipid, grassy blah taste that plagues most candelas on the market today. They are never spongy and never tight. So perfectly rolled, I only cut a slit the head with a razor and they always draw perfectly. Now that Macanudo has discontinued the Jade wrapper, I always keep these on hand as I really enjoy a Candela in the morning.

Good value

Not bad at all. Good fishing or fire pit smoke.

Inconsistant, but good when they work

Not a bad smoke - if.. After trying the first bundle of the two I bought, I find I have to throw away about one in 3. They are either so packed they won't draw (even using a Draw Poker) or they burn very uneven and a couple wouldn't stay lit. I'll spend a little more on future purchases to ensure more consistency.
