I have been looking for a replacement for 8-5-8 natural. As for appearance, construction, and draw, this cigar beats 8-5-8 hands down. One thing I noticed is that if you keep the cigar cool, as opposed to 8-5-8, it burns to the end w/o getting bitter. I generally feel bitter with 8-5-8 around 1/3 near the end. My only complaint is that it has a very unsophisticated taste. It is very earthy (or leathery) and I like a bit of sweetness in the cigar. It is a bit boring really as far as flavor goes. So I think in flavor and complexity it takes 3 stars.
