Appearance: 90

Aroma: 90

First Third

Flavor: 89
Strength: Mild-Medium
Body/Complexity: Light-Medium

“As the first third starts I am getting roasted nuts with a slight sweetness.” – (Jai)

“The cigar starts out with nutty and woody flavors and a slight underlying sweetness with dry mouth feel.” – (Bearded Bastard)

Second Third

Flavor: 90
Strength: Mild-Medium
Body/Complexity: Light-Medium

“The second third was a pleasant treat. The white pepper and mineral notes had faded and gave way to a creamy smoke with hints of gram cracker and baking spices. The draw has been on point giving just the right amount of resistance to keep from overheating the cigar.” –

(quinnpins269)

“The ash is very weak and flakey. pepper does dial back. A smokey wood note joins. The profile is still very smooth and the draw is very open and effortless. The pepper is now through the nose .” – ()

Final Third

Flavor: 90
Strength: Mild-Medium
Body/Complexity: Light-Medium

“Sweet creamy goodness and a wonderful aroma of fresh roasted coffee is was the final third had in store for me. It was a very nice transition from the second third with the gram cracker and backing spices.” – (quinnpins269)

Overall Body/Complexity: Light-Medium
Experience Overall: 89

“I would put this cigar in the milder end of the range. It offered some great profiles in the second and final thirds. But I could see it becoming very muted with coffee, soda, or bourbon. I choose to stick with water for this review. I enjoyed the cigar but would not consider adding it to the regular rotation. I would smoke it from time to time though.” – (quinnpins269)

“I really enjoyed the flavor combos, the meaty mouthfeel, I think it makes a great after-dinner cigar.” – (Bearded Bastard)

“As soon as I lit this cigar, I could taste sweetness and roasted nuts, almost like honey-roasted peanuts. As I continued to indulge, a little white pepper was introduced, adding a little complexity to the cigar. The sweetness eventually gave way to the pepper notes, only to return as the cigar began to wind down. Would I smoke this cigar again? Absolutely! I enjoyed the experience so much I would have immediately smoked another one upon setting this one down.” – (Jai)

“Although I may have been hoping for more than the cigar could provide, I did enjoy the cigar. Some bitter after notes in the first third were coupled with a very singular character profile. The profile was smooth and enjoyable. It was if not a touch mundane and unexciting. I would smoke the cigar again but would not seek them out.” – ()
