The Chateau series offers a consistent burn with a smooth, perfectly snug draw. Even though some of the Chateau series cigars need one or two touch-ups during the smoke, this rarely affects the quality of the smoke. The ash may also be flaky especially for the larger sizes like the King T and the Royale Salute. The smaller versions like Queen B and Belicoso hold their ash very well. The burn is quite slow, and even the smaller versions can turn into a one and ½ hour smoke.
