Decided life was too short to continue experimenting with bad cigars and threw a few extra bucks at these. Smoked five of the Tempus Terra Nova's thus far and each was just plain good. Consistent, smooth, medium or better bodied. If I had to come up with any sort of criticism it's that they tend to burn just a little uneven at times, requiring a little extra fire from the lighter. Very happy with these. They'll be one of my regulars from now on.
