"Pretty solid medium bodied cigar. Not fully my cup of tea, but there were aspects of it that I certainly enjoyed. The transitions from the early portion to the mid portion as well as the mid range to the finale were also really elegant. The final portion was really the best part for my taste, and it wasn't really a chore to get there." -John I. (John I.)

"Overall this was a solid performing smoke. A bit full bodied and strong for sure, make sure you have something in your stomach before smoking this bad boy, it will hit you going into the second half. Flavors were spot on for a full bodied smoke and diverse enough to make it interesting. Try one out, may be your next full bodied goto!" -John A. (Bostoneo)

"I really enjoyed this cigar mainly due to its unexpected complexity. I loved the initial mixture of well-balanced flavors and the enduring construction. The one downside was having to relight in the middle third. I would definitely purchase this cigar in the future for that time when I need that quick smoke." -Kent (Throck)

"Ok...I like lonsdale and Lancero cigars but this was a very good cigar. It had depth of flavor and was very interesting. Construction was excellent, and the performance was really exemplary. I will gladly recommend this to anyone who is ready to move from mild to medium. Now to find out what it is so I can buy a box!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
I had high expectations going into this cigar with it being the 115th anniversary and all the hype over the last year. I have to say it did not disappoint as I enjoyed the flavor profile from beginning to end. I had to touch up the burn once or twice but overall it performed outstandingly. While the cigar is on the pricey side I would happily light up another given the chance. Highly recommend this cigar.
"I really enjoyed this medium-bodied cigar. I'd probably buy more, maybe in a slightly larger ring gauge to see if the draw was a tad looser for perfection. Its wonderful and ever-changing flavors ranging from chocolate to wood notes kept me on my toes wondering what may be next. Pick this one and try it, it will not disappoint!" -John A. (Bostoneo)
