Punched this thing- No draw. Oh crap. Used my crappy single blade- oh crap, just mangled the thing. Still no draw. Massaged, ok, more like squished the sh** out of a hard spot near the cap until I got a better draw. So I've had the churchill sized Black- the Frontier, and I loved it. So I grabbed this guy because I was in a bad mood (stressed out- girlfriend issues) since I loved the larger version. So did this one deliver? Absolutely. Same light, fragrant aroma, great taste with a light hint of spice. Just smooth flavour all the way down. Thanks Jay! You made this night better with this stick! Also, halfway down the stick I semi-resolved issues with the girlfriend- although we do have some issues still with her parents... I am going to look into a box of these guys!
