You can pretty much spot a RP a mile away but not with this guy. No RP branding at all, just the words Habano Especial written on the band.
Picking up this cigar felt like a small lead pipe. Heavy and rock solid from the cap to about half way. No give whatsoever.
I attempted to light this stick but the draw was ultra tight. So much so I had to use a poker right from the start to no avail. Next I tried to cut the cap a little lower this worked a little better but still not very good and understandably the wrapper started to…unwrap.
I tried and I tried to get this cigar going but it never eventuated. I wouldn’t put my name on this cigar either, good call Rocky!
