As the title reads; taste for the price is excellent - assuming you can smoke the darn things. Construction quality varies between below average and just throw it away and take another one. Burn is usually uneven, but that's easy enough to touch up — after all, I've had a good many super-premiums that canoe worse than these do.
What gives this series of cigars a failing grade is the exceedingly poor roll consistency and quality. I understand that inexpensive cigars are going to be book rolled, but far too many of these are like the old-fashioned books that had to be torn apart top and bottom before the pages could be turned. Most of the samples I've smoked (well over 100 between BCP and local purchase) have at least 1 or 2 spots that need to be worked by hand to loosen them up for smoking, but too many remain far to tight to draw on no matter how much time you spend trying to loosen them up.
It's easy enough to inspect individual cigars and 5-packs before purchase at your local cigar shop, but that's not possible via the internet. On the other hand, they are almost twice as costly purchased locally.
My search for a reliable cheap cigar goes on.
