I feel like the other vitolas are just passable, but this one is one to take note of. I would say that the cigar started out at medium-full strength and then eased back to medium for the final two thirds. I highly recommend that you seek these out.
I really dug the flavors I got right off the bat as well as the pepper that was there for the first inch or so. After everything mellowed out, it became a little less interesting. Slight transitions of creaminess went along with the wood. Not a bad cigar when wood was the dominant flavor, just not as desirable as the previous flavors.
Overall, this was a tremendous smoke, not even taking into account the fact that it’s pretty young and hasn’t been released yet. I can only imagine how these will be in 6 months or a year. The draw and burn were both spot on and I had no issues with construction. I think Jon Huber has struck gold again with this release and I will definitely pick up a box for myself.
I would consider this above average. Definitely something that you could enjoy when you’re looking for something mild like a morning smoke.
