This one is definitely a social statement maker if you smoke in public. That being said, it IS worth trying, but as far as a regular, or even monthly smoke, I personally would not by a box unless one wants to give sticks to friends or just shock them with the size and display of the camo-wrappers.
BCP might want to consider a 5 pack offering. First, they would sell more. Second, true cigar fans would try the Ogre and tell others. Again, a box is overkill IMO for this stick.
The burn can be uneven and requires carful rolling and touch ups with a pointy flame lighter to achieve an even burn. The flavors are interesting and change as one navigates this long giant cigar.
Begins with soft light spice, then rich & tangy, then gets more spicy, then even more spice. If you keep smoking further and commit to the nub, a bit of a head rush at the end.
Note: It will take nearly an hour to properly smoke this bat-sized beauty. Due to the combination of the blend and multi-wrappers, some ash flake will occur during the duration of the smoke.
Truly presents a conversation piece for male and female smokers or non-smokers just curious "What is That". Yes, size does matter. This cigar looks awesome sitting on a desk, or in the center console of your favorite automobile. If you want people to notice you, whip one out! The shock value alone is worth the price every time.
BCP regular customer. I try many sampler packs from BCP. This stick is NOT currently available in a sampler or 5 pack and comes in a beautiful box of 30 packaged for perfection.
