"If you are looking for a powerhouse cigar that offers sweet undertones and a smooth, crisp retrohale, this is for you. Definitely not for the weak at heart. This cigar is everything a smoker who enjoys full flavored smokes could ask for. Ready to smoke right when I got it, this cigar needs little rest to allow it to fully mature into an after dinner delight. Definitely grab some of these if you want to challenge your palate to a fistfight full of potential and destruction. Excellent cigar." -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)
"This ranks up there with one of the better blind cigars I've smoked. The coffee, leather and baking spices were perfectly balanced and changed up enough to keep it interesting. The added spice from time to time was appreciated as was the toast and char that showed up near the end. I would definitely grab more of these to enjoy." -Gregg (McGreggor57)
