I'm have only been smoking cigars regularly for about 3-4 months. Only off and on the past 12 years. I have never chunked a cigar without finishing, cause I'm cheap, untill this past weekend. My uncle gave me some Free Cuba torpedos. Thought I would give it a shot while mowing the lawn. Got about an inch in and there was now way I could continue. I didn't think it could be that bad, I was wrong. If it is a "tolerable" stick I will hang in there. Free Cuba, chunk them before you light 'em. The only way I could describe the tase would be amonia and fish. yum!
