"This cigar was a real treat. Exceptional flavors throughout, with subtle transitions. Even at the end of the final third, flavors were still a delight, with no heat or bitterness. I would smoke this cigar over and over." -Randy B. (randobush)

"This was a decent smoke for me. The cigar had a lot of flavor notes that I like such as leather, coffee and cocoa. The added hickory and campfire were nice also. I sort of wish the initial mix of spice and mixed peppers would’ve stayed on longer, albeit in the background. The cigar became more monotone for me as it progressed but it still remained a tasty smoke and I would definitely revisit it again with a nice espresso or Cuban coffee." -Diana (ArmyRN)

"I'm very conflicted. The burn required constant attention and more relights than I cared to count. The flavors were very good though and I found the profile shifted though out in engaging ways. I would smoke this again to see if the construction issues were a fluke but I would be wary of purchase if the price was high. " -Alan (Eulogy)
