A lot of guys I've asked have said its always been that way. Even so, it was way past any peak it had.

Did it draw like sucking a McDonald's shake through a straw? That has been my experience with them...I'm about 0-3 on that brand, won't waste money again.

I think my LA duena a was broken. Overall a good smoke but from the start to the finish it was one big pepper bomb. Spicy hot even. Black pepper mixed with crushed red pepper sprinkled with white pepper. Not what I was expecting. Especially after KeyWest's description and they've been spot on so far. Now onto the My Father tabacos baez??? I'm going to wait to see other impressions before commenting. And finally tried a CAO Brazilia. Quite happy with this one.

Lol did I not mention it was peppery? Majority of stuff I smoke has that chocolate, coffee, and pepper combo goin on. Sorry if I gave the wrong impression on that one. But it was blended by Pepins daughter so given the heritage, spicy should be expected lol.

I've only had 2 tobacos baez and liked em. There's some spice in that one too. Great bargain buy, I see em on cbid a lot.
