in size, this firm and veiny sample has a wrapper that feels like sandpaper and chestnut brown in color.” – (Bostoneo)

Aroma: 89

“Sweet compost is the dominant aroma at the wrapper with a hint of clove spice at the foot. It smells quite nice.” – (Jokey Smurf)

First Third

Flavor: 90
Strength: Medium
Body/Complexity: Medium-Full

“Thick black pepper and earth. through the nose cream and also chocolate. Leather and sweet floral are also present nice and complex. Cigar is medium in strength. Burn is performing very well, and draw is perfect. Ash easily holds through the first third.” – ()

“The initial flavors are quite flavorful and are jam packed with spicy pepper and peat… through the nose the smoke is all black pepper but not overwhelming.” – (Jokey Smurf)

Second Third

Flavor: 92
Strength: Medium
Body/Complexity: Medium-Full

“As we enter the second third, the marvelous dry profile continues. Cedar, cashews, and faint musty leather with a creamy aftertaste provide the basis for this portion. Black pepper seems to wax and wane throughout.” – (Bostoneo)

“Into the second portion the pepper has settled and I’m rewarded with wonderful full bodied espresso flavors and a lingering creaminess after every puff. Through the nose the smoke is still quite peppery but is also enjoyable.” – (Jokey Smurf)

Final Third

Flavor: 91
Strength: Medium
Body/Complexity: Medium-Full

“Great easy going dry profile continues with a spot on medium profile on the lighter side. Grassy hay like flavors provide a nice change of pace in a transition halfway through alongside smokey woodsy notes. Approaching the end, this profile remains consistent and flavorful.” – (Bostoneo)

“OK this sweetness flavor is just odd…’s kind of like a summer sausage flavor, but not……not sure how to describe it……but I’ll try: Tangy with a bit of spice and a tingling sensation on my lips & tongue. It’s weird, but good and a new one on me.” – (irratebass)

Overall Impressions

Draw: 98

“Love the draw, I am quite judgmental when it comes to a draw. They did good with this one.” – ()

Burn: 98

“Taking the breeze into consideration where I’m smiling this cigar the burn has been basically flawless. I’m very impressed!” – (Jokey Smurf)

Construction: 90

“Nice construction…plenty of smoke and the cigar had a beautiful white ash from beginning to end.” – (irratebass)

Overall Strength: Medium
Overall Body/Complexity: Medium-Full
Experience Overall: 94

“A very good cigar anyone could appreciate this cigar. Box worthy for sure. Multiple box worthy in my opinion.” – ()

“So this cigar was good, but nothing spectacular until the final third when it opened up with that weird summer sausage sweetness. I’m not sure summer sausage is the right description, but that’s what I’m going with.” – (irratebass)

“Overall this was a nice easy cigar to enjoy without any flaws. The dry flavor profile (not sweet) is my gig and I love it as many blenders just make their blends a bit too sweet for me but this was spot on. Excellent stick for a nice anytime smoke, perhaps even back to back.” – (Bostoneo)

“Man…I really enjoyed the flavors of this cigar! I really love coffee and this was coffee for the duration. A funny story on this one is that due to high elevation my jet lighter wouldn’t light. I ended up starting a small campfire by hand with friction and sticks and lit the cigar that way…a first for me, and now I know I’m a survivor…” – (Jokey Smurf)
