“The roller did an excellent job with this one. Both great to look at and a great performer. I don’t think construction could be improved on.” -Dave W. (mdwest)Read More
“Overall, this is a very good cigar that will only benefit with a little more humidor time, say 3-6 months. I think this cigar might incorporate an Ecuadorian wrapper, due to the flavor profile (grass) however with its rosado shade it has me second guessing myself. I would easily recommend this cigar to a cigar newbie (on a full stomach) or a seasoned cigar enthusiast. This is a smoke I hope to get the chance to reach for again and again.” -Matt C.

“The first two thirds of this cigar are some of the best and most complex you can find in a full body smoke. Burn, draw and construction are all top notch and the cigar is very well made. Unfortunately, the finish becomes unbalanced and slightly bitter in the final third. This can be a product of age and letting this cigar sit for a few months or so will rid the final third of this bitter note. I could buy 10 or so of this cigar and it will hit the mark when I am looking for a full body smoke. However, there are a few other full bodied cigars I would reach for over this one.” -Dave (Cigar Jukebox)Read More
“This was a different than normal experience for me. I have not had too many fruit forward cigars. This one was quite nice. The balance of blackberries, coupled with a nice pepper finish to start, was very enjoyable and had me wanting more cigars in this area. Grab one of these and enjoy the nuances.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)Read More
