“This cigar was never in my wheelhouse, but I am happy I got the opportunity to smoke it. This cigar expands the palate from prelight to the nub of what a premium cigar can offer in terms of flavor. Maybe my palate is broken.. I have no idea, but the exhale/retro was interesting delivering the wet wood, peat, earth, citrus, salt and flighty cream. I would happily have a few of these on hand to enjoy with some rye whiskey.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)
“It was full enough to keep me puffing, but mild enough for an adventurous noob to stretch their horizons. I’ve seen one other cigar that looked like this, so maybe I can guess what it is, but I can assure you that I’ll have more of these when the reveal happens!” –Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
“While I’m generally not a fan of bitter coffee flavors, the bitter anise flavors in this stogie were just right to make it a terribly mouthwatering smoke, as long as you don’t mind red pepper spice that is.” -Stefan (Stefan)
“This was a bit spicier than what I normally go for, but it had a lot of other flavor notes that I really like. I think with a bit of age this could be a really stellar smoke.” -Jeff (ExpendableYouth)

“I didn’t hate the flavors of this cigar and it preformed very well technically; I just found myself becoming bored of the flavor profile. It was also a little awkward to smoke due to its very large size and boxed pressed shape.” -Alan (Eulogy)
