o start, that corrects itself with each puff. Great notes of grass, oak, tea, and black pepper. A nice cigar to enjoy on St. Patrick's Day. A cigar I'd want in my humidor." -Sean F. (fullermaine)
"Rarely is ever do I have a cigar experience that is as epic as this was. The flavors and aromas were beyond extraordinary and they worked so well together . Citrus, salted nuts, slight sweetness, and a retro so smooth it should be criminal. I'd easily give this a 98. Multi box worthy. Trust me, you're gonna enjoy this if you enjoy what time and great tobacco can do together. " -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
"I really enjoyed every aspect of this cigar. If you like deeper flavored cigar with a nice pepper finish this is the one. Great build, with minimal need to track the burn. Sit back and truly enjoy the nuances that this cigar has to offer. Well done to the company." -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)
This year, we decided to give you a tour of the show through the pictures we took while we were there. Some are of new items, and some are just things we thought were interesting. These manufacturers were not sharing booth space, we just combined them into a single slideshow due to the number of pictures we had from each.
"I enjoyed this cigar it kept giving me notes of sweet tobacco, coffee, German chocolate cake, and even some cream soda at the end. This cigar started out nice with the sweetness then let up and brought in the wood and earthy notes, but the sweetness never left and even returned at the end. I will let you know dear readers that this does require some time commitment. I wouldn't suggest you smoke this cigar in the elements unless it's a nice spring or fall day." -Mickey T. (irratebass)
"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..." -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
This was a really nice cigar, and I'm surprised by how well it preformed given that it was on the IPCPR show floor last week, and already in stores. Yes, I purchased this one. The flavors were mostly honey with a nuttiness and a bit of coffee and some spice. As I mentioned before the burn was top notch, and not one touch up was needed. I really enjoyed this cigar, and I think it would make a nice 1st stick of the day, but bear in mind this is a toro, so there is some time commitment, as this cigar last me right around 95 mins.
"This was an excellent cigar, and one I may request before facing execution by a firing squad. Flavors, complexity, and construction are all on point. I believe this is a cigar that will stand up to multiple cigars a day as the flavors are bold and evident. I'll be seeking these out if they are readily available in this exact vitola, no additional aging time is needed. Smoke this cigar after a salty fatty steak and thank me later." -Matt C. (Big Matt)

"Lovers of milder to medium cigars are going to love this one. Even though not very complex in the first and middle thirds, it picks up and compensates in the final third. I usually enjoy a little more pepper and more spice so I was a little disappointed in that. More sweeter flavors would have been welcome, but then again this was not a maduro. Overall, a good cigar that I will definitely want to visit again." -Sandeep (Djangos)
