It was much, much stronger. I was definitely messed up afterward. Why is it so much stronger the second time around? How does it compare with lighter cigars, like Black and Mild’s?

If you smoked it a week after putting it out, it was stale and dried out. I

And what do you mean ‘legal’ cuban? Is it a ‘clear Havana’ cigar or one of the ones rolled with supposed pre-embargo tobacco?
