"Overall I really enjoyed this cigar there were a lot of wood flavors, but into the second and final third there was some nice citrus mixed with some salt flavors that really balanced it out and made the wood flavors seem to dilute. I would smoke this again and would like to pair it with some morning coffee." -Mickey T. (irratebass)

"I would have rated the cigar higher if not for the last third. I feel like it ran out of steam. The flavor profile of the first two thirds was great with the dark rich notes but soon turned to just another run of the mill smoke. It is a shame really, the end was clearly not what the blender intended this cigar to be. I would give it another shot down the road." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
"As I sit and ponder the cigar I just finished I am reminded why I smoke cigars. It is for experiences like this…wonderful flavors, excellent performance, and a perfectly relaxing 90 minutes where the troubles of the day disappear and I feel like the richest man in the world. Cigars like this remind me of how this is a luxury for everyone and I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who has a liking for full flavor and just enough power to keep them humble. I could smoke this daily, and would be proud to have boxes of this on the top shelf of my display humidor. I can say with a certainty I will be buying a box after this is revealed." -Jason H.

"I would reach for this one again. The cigar was a nice mild-medium profile that did not stray at any point. The bitterness I experienced at the beginning had me worried but the cigar got past that quickly and was very enjoyable. Bonus points for being a box pressed lonsdale. " -Quinn (quinnpins269)
"This was a very good cigar. It stayed in my wheelhouse in the mild to medium strength. This cigar gave me some interesting flavor notes that I appreciated with a mixture of nuts, cedar and other wood notes, root beer (?), salt, and even a salsa note at one point as well as some popcorn aromas on the aromatics. Very enjoyable cigar for the 2 plus hours that I smoked this. I highly recommend picking up a fiver at least. I know I will be picking up more once I know what this is. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
"Great looking and performing lancero. If you like an earthy profile this would be a great choice. I did find that it had a lack of transitions and was a bit one-dimensional. Still, the profile was solid and engaging the entire time." -Alan (Eulogy)
"A surprisingly good cigar. With notes of grassy flavor, I imagined the sunshine on my face and the carefree days of my youth. The hints of red pepper added a layer of excitement to the smoke and prevented a monotonous flavor experience." -Jai P. (Jai)
"In the end, this was quite enjoyable. They were great flavor transitions and it was a cohesive mix. There are plenty of flavors to be found, and I appreciated how the body progressed throughout the cigar. I can see some people smoking this too fast and missing some of that but otherwise, it's a good cigar." -Isaac M. (The Nothing)
"The creamy sweet milk chocolate notes that slowly evolved into a more bitter dark chocolate by the end along with the classic leather and earth background notes made a very old-school quality Maduro. There was some great complexity and interest with the nuttiness, molasses, baking spices, and hint of cinnamon that upped this blend to another level. I'd be interested to try this in a larger size to see if more time allowed for even more transitions." -Lauren S.
"This is one of those cigars that might create problems with some smokers. The flowery ash and uneven burn might cause some to relight it too many times. This would change the flavor profile for most. If they can get past all of this they might enjoy the smoking experience. All that being said, this cigar is a “Don’t judge a book by its cover” kind of cigar. You should try it out and see what you think." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
