"The flavors were plenty good just a few unwanted notes that didn't go well with the rest of the profile. Draw was great, construction on the other hand and burn suffered greatly. Depending on price point I would smoke again." -Ryan H. (Ryan H.)

"After initial inspection I wasn’t sure what to expect, however, this cigar smoked fantastically and produced delicious flavors. From pre-light draw to last puff, the cigar performed above expectations and had great smoke output. Not exactly my cup of tea as it was a little sweeter than I prefer, but I would gladly smoke another. Fantastic smoke if you have under an hour. Nub was the best part. Puff slowly and enjoy the end my friends." -Adam B. (Bushboi)

"This cigar was one of my favorite “larger/longer” formats I have had in a while. Plenty of mild/medium profiles in the beginning and a medium/fuller profile along the backend gave great diversity in the many facets this cigar gave me. Coupled with an impeccable draw, burn, and construction, made this cigar better than the average bear. Foundational notes of cedar, leather, peppery earth, and cream cemented themselves throughout the session in one form or another and was accented with visiting flavors that helped keep this an interesting stick. I truly believe this is a stick that you would enjoy more so than most others for the given profile. Enjoy!" -John A. (Bostoneo)
