This cigar has achieved somewhat of a cult status because of its unorthodox design and use of rare Braganca tobacco from Brazil. Instead of a band, the cigar uses a tobacco stem twisted around it. It is difficult to remove this band, but while you can smoke through it, it will impart some harshness.  However, don’t let this deter you – this is a great cigar.
