"Until that last third I would have said that this was a fairly linear cigar with minimal transition. The last third saved it a little bit but I’m not sure most people would have stuck around for it. I would have been one of them. If you are a fan of a light, liner cigar this will be for you. I’ll be interested to see what this cigar is so I can give it another shot." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

"This was a good cigar that offered some good sweet notes of cherries and chocolate. Nothing fancy or overly complex. Just straight-forward flavors. It would make for a nice after-dinner cigar, paired with a moderate proofed bourbon or rye. " -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
