Default White owl grape

Another review in the ďVolt flavored cigar seriesĒ and another White owl, the grape flavored one this time. This cigar is 4 ĺ inch long with a 40 ring. The wrapper is flawless, as itís made out of tobacco paper and not real tobacco.



The construction isnít that good as little pieces of tobacco fall out of the cigar, which shows itís a short filler. The aroma is sweet, a fruity bubblegum smell.



What can I say? Fortunately I canít taste a lot of flavor in this smoke, just some bubblegum like I used to buy when I was a kid. The draw, burn and smoke of this cigar are good, but thatís all.



Would I buy this cigar again? What do you think? No!



Construction: 6 / 10
Draw: 7 / 10
Appearance: 4 / 10
Smoke & ash: 7 / 10
Burn: 8 / 10
Aroma (first part) 4 / 10
Aroma (middle part) 4 / 10
Aroma (last part) 4 / 10

Don, your willingness and ability to smoke any cigar has me in awe. Many lessor people would have given up by now.

Have to admit that Don is a tough guy. Now I want to see a lutefisk review in the good eats section.

3 more? I didn't think I sent that many different types. The real scary part, I only sent a tip of the iceberg as to what's available. There are tons of "fine" cigars still left to sample if you change your mind.

I would never disparage any cigar because somewhere, SOMEBODY likes these, but I gotta say Don, you are really being a good sport about this!
