"This was a very enjoyable and well-balanced dark noted smoke. With fairly constant subtle shifts it kept my interest level pretty high. I would put this in my box-worthy category. The strength is very manageable, and I could easily see it working well any time of day. The only minus is that the burn time is fairly quick for the size." -Chris M. (Chris)
"This was a very sweet deep dark chocolate fruity smoke. I don't often like sweet smoking cigars but this one was very enjoyable. The retrohale was very different with complex sweetness, red pepper bursts, and pipe tobacco flavor to it. I would really like to have a couple more of these to try and possibly consider added to my humidor. For the blind tasting I had a Mexican mineral water but I believe a good bourbon or peaty scotch would pair excellently with this smoke." -Chad M. (Chad Tchad)
"I really enjoyed what this cigar offered. The complexity was there and kept me engaged throughout the entire session. Delicious notes of hazelnut, cedar, and red pepper worked in harmony, along with some orange zest to keep things interesting. Then you add in the parts with milk chocolate at the beginning and coffee towards the end, you're left with a fulfilling experience that I wouldn't mind revisiting in the near future. I will be interested in smoking this again, once I find out what it is that I smoked. " -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
"This was a cigar that hit all the high notes when it comes to flavors that I enjoy. Leather, baking spices, creaminess, all wrapped up to create an enjoyable smoking experience. The retro was smooth and the strength was just right. I would definitely try this cigar again. Worthy of at least a fiver if not a.box. Thanks for the experience! " -Kevin J. (maninblack77)

"This little cigar delivered high in the satisfaction department. Although small, it delivered very well on the flavor side, performed well, and did not take a long time to smoke. This could easily be added to my regular rotation when looking for a flavor-filled cigar that I can enjoy all of it when time is short, like during a lunch break at work or in the middle of a busy weekend day when I don't have 1 1/2 to 2 hours to sit and smoke a cigar. Can't wait to find out what this is!" -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
