“I loved it. I should probably say more I guess. I didn’t have to fight with this cigar, and it gave me some flavors that were pleasant, unique, and very compatible. It also kept me interested when the profile would transition and show me something new. Combine that with a smooth retrohale and a great burn and I am happy.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)
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.
“I’ll start off by stating that I am not a fan of mild cigars…They generally just don’t keep my attention. This was an exception. The occasional flavor transitions, plus the excellent initial flavors were interesting and worthy of my time. This is something that I would highly recommend to any new smoker, of someone looking for a change of pace. Also, a perfect way to start a day. The reveal of this one will be interesting…. This cigar is one where the totality of the experience is greater than each of it’s parts…well done.” –Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
“This is a cigar that I would gladly smoke again. While the flavors may not have gone through a roller coaster of transitions, they were consistent and well balanced. The retrohale was not bitter or harsh, and really complimented the flavors on the palate. It burned well and produced great smoke. I look forward to finding out about this cigar.” –Matthew T.

“Performance scores raised my overall evaluation. The flavors of the first two thirds were OK, but not special. Unfortunately the harshness of the final third would have me thinking twice about trying this one again.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)
“A bit more of a pepper blast was delivered than expected on the first few puffs, with just a faint taste of coffee detected in the blend.” -Dave W. (mdwest)
