I hate that! It's fine when it works after 1 -2 pokes but it seems some cigars are born lost causes. Even worse when the poker it self causes damage; I had an Ashton ESG torpedo yesterday that had a really tight draw, 1 poke caused the wrapper & binder to split.

I had a Brickhouse Mighty Mighty Maduro that I smoked nearly all day. I love Brickhouse, but I am just not a fan of these giant cigars.

Same here Chip - I can smoke Churchill's & Toros all day but I generally stay away from anything "Gordo". Usually seem too plagued by burn issues and excessively loose draws.

Alas, these are some of the last cigars I smoked on my vacation....











*In no particular order*
Yet another (and unfortunately my last) Eye of the Shark, was just as good as the first. An LFD Ligero, nice, but I prefer the Double Ligero to this one....
Oh and okay, next up both the Wise Man and the Gueguense, these were interesting- they both have garnered a lot of great reviews, I found the Wise Man (the maduro) to be spectacular, but wasn't all that impressed by the Gueguense.
And last, The Tabernacle! Believe anyone who tells you this is a great cigar, because it most certainly is. Basically everything I could want in a flavorful maduro. Plus, it also has a *very* unique spicy pepperyness to it. So unique in fact, that I think it would be pretty easy to pick it out in blind maduro taste test. (Other than being the tastiest maduro in the line up, haha.) So if you like Maduros, do yourself a favor and check out the Tabernacle asap!

It was great!! Definitely full bodied and full flavored...starts off a little spicy and mellows rather quickly but maintains a rich & chewy profile. If memory serves correct it primarily has notes of chocolate, cocoa & coffee.
It's an excellent cigar but they are also on the expensive side - and if I'm being completely honest, there are other Nicaraguan Maduros that can achieve a similar profile for much less.
That said it's definitely 5-pack worthy, but out of all of what I've tried by Foundation, the Tabernacle is what I'd pick as a "must try"!
