Default Swisher sweets

Wanger send me this terrible 5 inch ring 42 piece of sh*t. The thing that surprises me is that this cigar actually has a tobacco aroma to it even though the wrapper is tobacco paper. The predraw is ok and a bit sweet.



After lighting I taste a sweetness, not as chemical as the flavored CAO’s, Phillies and White owls but still no natural flavor. After an inch there is also a bit bitter pepper flavor that accompanies the sweetness. This flavor will last the whole cigar.



The smoke and draw are ok.



Would I buy this cigar again? No. If this was the last cigar on earth I would quit smoking.

Construction: 7 / 10
Draw: 7 / 10
Appearance: 5 / 10
Smoke & ash: 7 / 10
Burn: 7 / 10
Aroma (first part) 5 / 10
Aroma (middle part) 5 / 10
Aroma (last part) 4 / 10

hehe, can't blame this one on me. I think the CAO Dream was the last of the ones I sent over. But if your running low and need more, let me know and I'll get a box ready.

I used to smoke these things all the time when I wasnt old enough to buy cigars - they were always available at careless convenient stores, even at a very young age... Of course, I ditched them as soon as I started enjoying hand-rolled premiums.

What I used to find strange was how much I would spit when smoking Swishers. I learned later that it was because these cigars are plain awful! Even now, I see others smoking them and spitting routinely.

no George, I don't need to get any more dog rockets. I'm done with those. I did not take a bullet for the team, I took a full clip of bullets, now it's someone else's turn.
