Kings County Revisited

I reviewed this cigar back in March 2021. At that time I gave it a firm.”No!” and to pass on it. Today I fired up the last one I had that had been resting in my humidor since my last review. Surprisingly I found it to be much better than the last. Giving it proof as we all know that even with a couple of months some sticks get better.

So with that said I’m changing my verdict to “Give it a try.” Why you ask? Well the pepper blast is now less pronounced then before and other flavors seem to blossom more than my previous review.

Note: As I always state try cigars for yourself and draw your own opinions. Just because A certain cigar blogger says “No” it doesn’t mean it’s not a “Yes” for you.

Until.Next Time
