Flor de Cano Selectos machine made

This selectos is machine made and has some other noticeable differences from the handmade one I reviewed yesterday. The wrapper is darker and has some stains and the cigar is wrapped in cellophane. The construction feels ok and the aroma is light and smells like a barnyard.
I could taste toast and coffee but after 2 puffs it all goes away. Couple of puffs later I could taste some light leather and that is actually the only thing I can taste until half way where the cigar picks up in power and leaves a bit toasty flavor with a creamy chocolate on the background. The finale is herbs & spices, not a really nice flavor though.
The draw is too loose, the ash is dark, the burn is ok but the amount of smoke is quite poor.
Would I buy this cigar again? No, the new handmade series are much better.
