Despite the bends and crooks, the attractive wrapper remains intact and the culebra burns well, but draws loosely. It’s a toasty cigar with some leather notes. The finish is oily and a bit charry.

An intentionally crooked cigar with a fine draw. The rich tobacco core and flavors of cedar, orange peel and cocoa are not terribly refined but agreable.

An unusual cigar in the marketplace, the three-cigar braid. It has a sweet woody character and decent construction. It's just odd-looking.
