I have been using Dark Horse for years now and it's thin string cut is perfect for my useage. The course cut tobaccos do not seem to pack properly. I use the mint and it does not overpower the smoker.
This starts out very much like the taste of grape candy which isn't a bad thing. After a few of these the candy thing goes away and you just start appreciating the cigar itself. Very nice aroma and relaxing while visiting friends or whatever you're doing. Awesome!
