I ordered a few Cigars the other day, and one came in bent I was refunded my money, but it was a cherry i really wanted to try (Asylum Dragon Milk) The outside appears to be fine, minus the curve and some 2 or 3 crinkles in the wrapper of the cigar... any how do you guys think it will affect the flavor, or will i get a true experience? :confused:

If the wrapper and binder are not cracked, thus affecting the draw, I would think your worse problem might be an uneven burn. Otherwise, not an issue.

Hey, some cigars are MADE bent, and even corkscrewed. Google culebra cigars.

A picture would help.

But if it is just bent, then the flavor will not be affected at all. How it burns may be your issue. It all depends on the severity of the bend.

Gorilla tape works much better and stays lit easier. :2

In all seriousness there are cigars that are made bent to start with, as long as there aren't huge rips in it you are fine.

Bent cigars are generally fine. Look at any cabinet of cigars and some will be bent around the ribbon. Culebras (pictured above) is another example.
