    As far as I can tell, this cigar was made for the European market and is not the same cigar as the Whiskey Row bourbon-barrel aged series.

    Once you get past that first half inch or so, this is actually a pretty nice cigar at a rather affordable price. Might even buy me a box for every day smoking.
