Old Havana churchill

I picked a couple of these up in a sampler and I haven't done a cheapie in a while. These run between 1 and 2 bucks a piece.  There wasn't a lot of information available about this one via google search. dark Ecuadorian-grown wrapper leaf and blend of premium Dominican long-fillers. The wrapper is rather smooth with visible seams and veins.  Pre light draw was nice and had a sweet tobacco taste. It lot easy with the handy torch and remained fairly even with a couple of touch ups. The old Havana is a combo filler and although not too horrific smoke it lacked complexity of any sort. There flavor profile included sweet tobacco and cedar with a nutty undertone. The flavors never really came to life. "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar" seems to fit this one. It isn't a bad cigar but it won't win any awards unless there is an award for being mundane. As cheap smokes go this would be worth giving a try, if for no other reason than to say you've smoked one. Body and strength were both on the milder side of mild-medium. I have one more resting in the humidor and I will revisit this review when I decide to light it up.
