"Excellent cigar! This cigar is definitely one that is within my wheelhouse. A cigar that is focused on flavor over strength is always a win for me. Also, a cigar (such as this) that builds flavors throughout the entire smoking experience keeps things interesting and engaging. I will buy a fiver or tener with no hesitation." -Jiunn (jliu)

"Overall, the cigar was a good and pleasant smoke. There was enough complexity to keep the interest even though it would have been better if it had maintained the complexity of the initial third. Definitely will smoke again." -Sandeep (Djangos)

"Overall, the cigar was a pleasant experience with a decent level of complexity. The predominant flavors are that of leather, tobacco and cedar. There is also a decent amount of pepper that persists throughout the cigar. I would definitely smoke this one again, but no super premium." -Sandeep (Djangos)

"Very solid cigar across the board. It won't change your life or make you feel as if you'd been touched by the hand of God, but it is a well constructed and tasty smoke. It doesn't require much effort to tease out and identify exotic flavors, or significant transitions, but what is there is very up front, and enjoyable. " -John I. (John I.)

"This was a good looking cigar that was enjoyable for the first two thirds. The final third fell a bit short as the cigar got hot and bitter. Would be interested too see what some age does to these. " -Zane G. (Zane)
