"Overall, this was a decent medium bodied cigar. Not much action was going on with a myriad of flavors, however what it did offer was a smooth and luxurious flavor profile filled with leather, well balanced black pepper, and dark chocolate creaminess. Well balanced and silky smooth, this is an easy recommendation and addition to your humidor. " -John A. (Bostoneo)
