Comments about El Padrino Franky The Bull Maduro Gordo:
Sure only OK for a bundled cigar seems about right, but the problem really is you can do much better for about the same money. These have some construction flaws especially in the 2nd third. the band is pretty large and once you take it off (once you've smoke down to the band) there are cracking and splitting issues.
The cigar did burn well despite the splitting and cracking. But the overall flavor was pretty one dimensional. I think if the bundle were more in the $30-35 range it would be fine. But with so many online retailers running specials on truly premium cigars for about the same money as this bundle. You can do so much better.
I cannot recommend the cigar, and truthfully I have to blame myself for not doing a better job of shopping before I purchased these. I look forward to having the space back in my humidor and will be giving as many of these away as my buddies will take.
