    If you need to display your ciars with fangs, in a coffin, and with a witty name…how good could they be? Let the product speak for itself (they may speak better without fangs).Then again, I’ve never smoked one. Probably never will.

    I’ve smoked 3 Dracs and have not experienced any of the issues you mentioned. Granted, the sticks were already out of the box and were sent by a friend in Florida. I rarely draw hardline conclusions, neither favorable nor unfavorable on single smoke. $13+ cigars are not for everyone.

    I don’t have any comment about Pete’s marketing strategies but as I mentioned above, I have met him and liked him right away. He cares a great deal about his customers and spends an awful lot of his time traveling the country, meeting and talking with them. He makes quality cigars and takes pride in his product and for the record, reviews are based on multiple smokings and background research. I call it like I see it based upon my expertise and playing favorites would be an integrity violation. Please remember that taste is subjective.

    I wish you life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness

    To the Cap’n…great review (as usual) and even better comment. For the past several years, I have limited my smoking to Cuban cigars (I believe they have more, and better flavor). It is insulting that many non Cuban brands feel the need to ” tuxedo ” their (probably good) product, in order to sell it. Let me be fair, Habano SA have their own uneeded marketing practices (Limited and Regional additions) to sell more cigars. I own 30 boxes of Havanas, no L or R additions, all in plain boxes, all enjoyable. Pete may dress his cigars up to offer his fans something different, that is cool with me based on the comments you made regarding his character. I hope my comment did not offend. However, this trend is quite annoying. The box of Partagas P#2s are packaged (as you know) pretty plain by non Cuban standards, they are very tasty to-boot. At $175 a box, pretty reasonable. No need to dress up a fine product. Oh, and buy the way for the other guy, just because a cigar cost $13, doesn’t make it taste better than others.

    I do not. I suggest checking with a quality Tobacconist in your area, although considering the time that has past I doubt they will have any either.
    Best of luck
