Although not overly complex, this cigar was more than what I expected. I have smoked a few RASS in the past and did not recall them being this good. Smooth, rich, creamy and very enjoyable sums up this cigar quite well. The appearance of the cigar on the pre-light may have led many aficionados to pass on this cigar (me included), but this is the perfect example of "don't judge a book by it's cover." I'll certainly be seeking more of these out.

"Overall, this is a very good cigar that will only benefit with a little more humidor time, say 3-6 months. I think this cigar might incorporate an Ecuadorian wrapper, due to the flavor profile (grass) however with its rosado shade it has me second guessing myself. I would easily recommend this cigar to a cigar newbie (on a full stomach) or a seasoned cigar enthusiast. This is a smoke I hope to get the chance to reach for again and again." -Matt C. (Big Matt)

"I really enjoyed this cigar. The pepper & sweetness mix was outstanding. The body & complexity rounded each other nicely." -Jeff R. (JR)
"Perfectly balanced and medium bodied is the best way to sum up this cigar. I had the opportunity to smoke two of these premium cigar offerings... that is like 16" of cigar.. never once did a harsh flavor cross my palate. On the exhale we had cedar, white pepper, herbs, antique tobacco, malts, and a little bit of sweetness. Retro had a delicious creamy airy lemon cake and cedar. Multi-country blend for sure. Perfect construction and burn. This cigar had flavors that reminded me of a old Cuban cigar from the 1980's with double the damn body. Aroma had an ancient library smell. This cigar would do very well in the European market. I'm done. Bravo." -Matt C. (Big Matt)

Although not overly complex in the tasting department, the flavors I experienced were very enjoyable and tastes my palate could easily relate too. I would certainly not be ashamed to pass this stick out to guest and experienced aficionados who I smoke with on a regular basis. Anxious to see what this stick is so I can pick some more up." -Kyle (kaleehb)

"A bit more of a pepper blast was delivered than expected on the first few puffs, with just a faint taste of coffee detected in the blend." -Dave W. (mdwest)
