I don't hold him responsible; at the peak, finding good tobacco and skilled rollers was exceptionally difficult; even the oldest largest and best firms were having difficulty obtaining quality tobacco.
I smoked a couple, then stuck them away in one of my humidors. That was at least ten years ago (I've got to learn to label my boxes with purchase dates).
I came across them the other day and smoked one to see if aging made a difference. It did. While still a bit on the harsh side, it tasted pretty decent. The wrapper is rough - like fine sandpaper. It burned a little unevenly, but drew OK. I'll keep them around to see how they develop as they mature further.
