"While not for my palate this blend would be great for those who enjoy a nice spiced tea. Spicy cinnamon and floral notes but to me the bitter flavor was overwhelming. " -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
"Overall this was a strong white and black pepper bomb. With light cedar/wood flavors and some chocolate and coffee flavors. There was some transition during the smoke which was nice. The pepper flavor however was strong and enjoyable. " -Chad M. (Chad Tchad)

Any cigar that reminds me this much of my beloved Liga Privada No. 9 is going to score very well with yours truly. Rich bold flavors of coffee and hickory saddled up with a delightful retrohale that delivers both black pepper strength and warm mineral in equal doses… when you add in great construction and beautiful copious smoke pouring out of both the foot and head of the cigar constantly throughout the entire smoking experience, well we have a definite winner on our hands. Highly recommended!" -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)

"This was definitely a cigar that had my attention, especially for the first half. I really enjoyed the back and forth I was getting with the chewy smoked meats and the sweet plums. I'd really like to revisit this and try it with a couple of different drink pairings, especially something like a Sherry finished bourbon." -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
