"There are some that would call this your grandfather's Connecticut cigar. I personally am not a fan of that flavor profile but I know the majority of the smoking community are. So this would be a winner for the fan of a cigar that is heavy on the cedar, vegetal, and pepper notes. This could make a great everyday cigar for that fan base and should find a home in many humidors." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

"This cigar hit all the right notes for me. Flavors were spot on and bold. They worked so well together. These are the types of cigars I'm drawn to generally. This would definitely be a cigar I'd enjoy after a nice steak dinner. And it's definitely one I'd try again. Either as a fiver or as a box buy. " -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
