This is another cigar in the ‘Volt flavored cigar review series’. A green cigar called “Game” and the text “slow burning” on the cigar band. The wrapper is green, and has veins all over. The cigar is 6 ¼ inch long and has a 44 ring. The aroma is liquorice.





The construction isn’t that good, the tobacco drops from the foot. The predraw is good and the flavor reminds me of liquorice allsorts. After lighting I can actually taste a chemical liquorice allsorts but not really overpowering.



The smoke is good, the ash is light and firm. The draw is just fine.



Would I buy this cigar again? No way!

Construction: 12 / 20
Draw: 14 / 20
Appearance: 8 / 20
Smoke & ash: 6 / 10
Burn: 7 / 20
Aroma (first part) 5 / 10
Aroma (middle part) 5 / 10
Aroma (last part) 5 / 10

Hehe, I notice that the reviews are getting shorter and shorter. A shame the pics as good as they are don't really do teh color justice, it is one very green cigar. Thank god, I think your down to one left. Actually not to awefull IMO, i have smoked the Eilieens Dream. I would not buy another one, but it wasn't as bad as some you have smoked.

you are a brave brave man... no matter the time of day nor the number of drinks I'd had, I don't think I could bring myself to smoke that stick.

In other news, that's almost the exact color of the bride's maid dress I'll be wearing in May. Yikes!
