This was an excellent cigar. I have never come across a PDR that I didn’t enjoy, but this one was among the best. I could also sense in it great aging potential and I believe time will only bring out more of the spice and coffee bean I detected in pre-light. These will not be around long, and I would advise against hesitation on purchasing some of these, as they will not lost long. I remember debating on pulling the trigger on a box of these when they were available years ago, and now regret not buying it even more. Buy a box of these, you will not be sorry.

“Marvelous from start to finish. Maybe I’m feeling charitable, as I’m smoking this on a great nigh, but it’s everything you could want in a cigar. Great draw and burn, complex flavors, satisfyingly thick and creamy smoke. I do wish there had been just a touch more pepper involved, to give it a little more character, but that’s a personal palate thing. This was an excellent cigar which could be enjoyed by new smokers and connoisseurs alike, and definitely box-worthy.” -Derek (StogieNinja)
“It started out with some spice and then transitioned more into the nutmeg and all spice. The final third mellowed out. The strength did pick up as the cigar went on.” -Ashley
“Even though I found this cigar lacking a wow factor, the flavors were solid. Defined transitions between the thirds held my interest. I wouldn’t grab this one for a special occasion although I would gladly smoke one again.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)
