“I was pleasantly surprised by this cigar. I am a big fan of this vitola and this particular cigar is a great example of why. Without being overly strong, this blend likely benefited from some intensified flavors caused by the smaller ring gauge. I was impressed by the sweetness and spicy balance of this smoke for sure. I would definitely keep a few of these on hand for a lunch smoke or a quick after-dinner nightcap. I would recommend pairing this with a good black tea, as the flavors are quite complimentary.” -Ryan (Youngryan216)

“The construction really held this cigar back. It was loose, spongy to the touch, and difficult to draw from. The flavors, while not great, were average and it did build to a nice finish.” -Alan (Eulogy)

“With a lot of cigars I find the cedar to be a bit heavy handed, not so with this one. The transition from a mature cedar to slightly charred then to a young sweeter one was very nice. The addition of hay, grass and leather paired well with the background flavors of nuts, coffee and cocoa. This cigar certainly offered me a very pleasant smoking experience.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)
“Overall, this was a great cigar. The transitions were interesting, I loved the move from pepper and spice to rich and creamy. It’s not one that stands out as mind-blowing, but it was enjoyable throughout, and I would very much enjoy smoking more.” -Derek (StogieNinja)
