this is true I went out and bought some others to sample not that bad but for the $$ you can get better, or I can at least.I've sampled exactly... one.. shared with some other poor souls.
For the cost... (and I am assuming it cost between 2 and 20 dollars), you can find many other more tasty smokes. A multitude, even.
Of course, tastes are subjective.
Perry and I did possibly get a slight "buttery toasted-ness" out of it, the other finer, erudite, and most learned palates at the table weren't able to enjoy even part of it.
I'm not looking for "buttered toast" in a cigar, and the rest of it was .. bleh, not enough to be worth purchasing. I do seem to recall some very large flames coming from the amazingly large foot upon lighting. I think Rob lost at least half an eyebrow.
