"It is a great cigar with near-flawless construction, great draw and smoke output, and rich flavors. The only thing really holding it back for me is the lack of transitions in the profile. This was a very large cigar and a very long smoke time caused it to become a bit monotonous. " -Alan (Eulogy)
"This cigar is meant to be smoked. Allowing it to sit for long causes the flavors to dissipate. Keep it hot and it will deliver. And that is where the problem comes. You have to keep on this cigar to keep the flavors rolling. I think if I had kept on this cigar, puffing at much faster than my normal rate, not only would I have found more enjoyable flavors, it would have also significantly shortened its already fast smoking time. While I quite enjoyed the first third, the rest of this cigar just couldn't satisfy. " -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

The construction of the cigar provokes an inevitable exploration of flavors as it ignites the taste buds for the sake of discovery. Enlightenment is a natural, mindful consequence of its physical attributes."

But, if you like light, delicate, and sweet flavor notes this is for you. Would pair perfectly with your morning coffee or any rum-based cocktail. I'm sure a few of these cigars will find it into my personal humidor and hopefully yours too. Enjoy" -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
