Funny, I had that experience just today . Well, actually it was a Graycliff Double Espresso and it was muy harsh.Yeh I had to throw out a Graycliff Espresso. I was so pissed off I smoked it way too fast and could not touch it up to a point where it would burn right.
:tpd:Have never tossed one. I keeping hoping it will turn around and get better, I stay in there all the way to the band. If I still did not like it to the end I will only try it once more and then never again. I always give everyone a second chance even a cigar!!!:tu
BTW - Obviously the box (which was gifted to me) cannot be sold. I plan to keep them for 5 years, then try another.I tossed a Punch 2 days ago. A real one... Big stogie, about 7 X 48. I smoked about 1/2 inch and it was just so strong and full I couldn't take it.
The sad part is, it was the first out of a box of 25. I have no plans to smoke any more of them, am going back to my trusted Dominicans and Hondurans... Larry.
