Maybe 3, 4 max with fading in and out at different points along the way. I have smoked 8 from this box and what a difference in flavor and body the longer they have been sitting. The pre-light draw was absolutely perfect. I decided to use a cedar stick to light this one. The first third of this Famosos was very very mild in body and flavor. Simple notes and all mild, cocoa, an earthiness and oak. I thought I was going to be disappointed but as I went into the second third it all picked up. The cocoa became very prominent, resembling a dark cocoa and that sweet Cuban twang kicked in with an oaky finish. That earthy flavor was gone, which is totally ok by me. The burn was razor sharp and the body and flavor picked up immensely. As I wound down to that last third the cocoa faded a bit, so did the sweetness which gave way to that oaky flavor and toasted tobacco. Because it was just that, “toast” .....gone......smoked to a nub and very much enjoyed. ? It was simple and flavorful.
