"This cigar offered a fairly solid smoke. The milder flavors transitioned nicely for the first two thirds. Once the leather left during the final third, the cigar developed a bit of harshness while the remaining flavors failed to achieve much of a balance." -Gregg (McGreggor57)

"The draw, burn and construction were outstanding for this beautiful looking cigar. The flavors, while not in my wheelhouse, were solid and well balanced for the first two thirds. The returning cedar and spice near the end came close to becoming harsh. This cigar might benefit from additional rest. Give me another one, however, and I will gladly smoke it." -Gregg (McGreggor57)
"The cigar started off well, developed nicely, then finished with a slight harshness that wasn't quite enjoyable. It heated up quite a bit in the final third. Maybe smoking it slower would eliminate this, but I am not 100% sure. All in all a decent smoke. The power behind it as it transitioned through the final two thirds was a bit of a surprise, and may prove too strong for a newer smoker. I was expecting it to stay in the medium range with the sweeter notes from the beginning." -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

I have always been a fan of Kristoff cigars and this cigar doesn’t disappoint. I was a big fan of the Kristoff DS4 from the Galerones series. I was happy to see that blend made itself back into the portfolio and is a staple in my humidor for a nice cigar with my morning coffee.

"I enjoyed this cigar, it was mild enough to be enjoyed as your 1st cigar of the day with some coffee. There were enough transitions to hold my attention with cream, cedar and some cinnamon. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
When the Temple Hall factory was acquired by General Cigar in the 1960s, Edgar Cullman, then chairman of the company, saw tremendous promise in Ramón and ultimately transferred him to the Dominican Republic where he played a pivotal role in developing the company’s strict standards for cigar making and quality assurance.

"I really enjoyed this cigar. I loved the peculiar first third that was able to undergo a metamorphosis into other complex flavors. I will be a purchaser of this cigar in the near future." -Kent (Throck)

"Although I've got nothing bad to say about this cigar, it just didn't do much for me. Even in mild sticks, I like more complexity and richness in the smoke texture. This didn't have much of it. Probably not a bad smoke for someone new to cigars or someone that likes mild, light bodied cigars. Not really for me though. I'll pass on smoking another." -Brian (B-daddy)
