Val here, this one is just my commentary because I picked up this cigar at the Lone Star Cigar Bash to try them.
I wanted to try it because Thomas loves the short stories, and this was the same size and shape, but with a barber pole wrapper.
This was a rather pleasant smoke. The wrapper was attractive with light and dark tobaccos, however, the difference in the leaves meant I needed to touch up the cigar a few times to keep it burning evenly. It started off middling, but as it got towards the middle it had an excellent mix of flavors. I would try this one again, but might prefer something other than a barber pole wrapper since I ran into several burn issues between the different tobaccos.
