"I really enjoyed this medium-bodied cigar. I'd probably buy more, maybe in a slightly larger ring gauge to see if the draw was a tad looser for perfection. Its wonderful and ever-changing flavors ranging from chocolate to wood notes kept me on my toes wondering what may be next. Pick this one and try it, it will not disappoint!" -John A. (Bostoneo)

"This cigar wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t complex, and it was rough goings early on with a tight draw that eventually opened up to acceptable levels of airflow. While I wouldn’t seek out this cigar to smoke again, to use a favorite line my hero Larry David, “having said that” I could think of worse ways to spend 52 minutes. " -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)
"I really enjoyed this cigar. Transition of flavors was noticeable, but subtle. Draw, burn, finish, flavors, construction, complexity, all admirable. Ultimately, I would buy this cigar." -Randy B. (randobush)

"This cigar hit on all cylinders for me... construction, draw, flavors... I’m a definite fan of this flavor profile and would recommend this to anyone who can handle full flavors and strength...I love it! My only complaint would be the resting aroma... it was not nearly as pleasant as the flavors and was sharp and harsh. Fortunately, I got to smoke this excellent cigar and enjoy the flavors it presented. "-Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
