I think two things hurt this cigar and it's sales and really neither has to do with the quality or pure enjoyment of the smoke. First this was over hyped, coming out of the 2016 ICPCR it was heralded as the collaboration of two titans, cant miss blend. The second strike against it is the price, i feel the MSRP was bumped above keystone pricing because the blenders and everyone expected to run to it, just because how could a cigar by Drew and Caldwell not be good. Yes good reviews and bad reviews, but if you read some of the good reviews like Halfwheel, who gave it a 90, even they say to pricey.
I am not telling anyone what to smoke, just putting out my opinion. But at 40% off it brings it more in line
I,ve only tried the Caldwell Eastern Standard Marble House and I enjoyed it.If the price wasn't reduced I would never consider it,there are better sticks for the price.I have to agree all the hype created by the cigar world on this stick would make people want to try it,but as we all know that will only take you so far.It just doesn't pay to advertise unless you can back it up.The true test are we the smokers.
