I have tried two of them from different cabinets. Both had a very lose draw for my taste. It’s a nice cigar, but it doesn’t add up to it‘s image and price. I have never since bought another one.
I do not know why people are so crazy about the BHK, I have tried all 3 of them, just for. The seek of trying, why I should pay extra premium for a regular line, the cigar has a good taste and slow burn, for me this is one time cigar, I trying to convince to try it again, but NO

/Cigar Reviewer André
I have only had a couple of this great cigar. I will let others wax lyrical on the virtues and delights of smoking a hundred pounds of leaf - but what am I saying? Of course it’s worth it? A spa trip or lunch at a pizza chain costs as much and I know well how I would rather nourish my soul! Also - with all the fuss about the BHK - you have to have tried one just to say you have tried one. Did I think it was amazing? No - it was very nice and smooth but I spent too much time worrying about how I should probably be enjoying it more. Maybe money can’t buy happiness.
