"After initial inspection I wasn’t sure what to expect, however, this cigar smoked fantastically and produced delicious flavors. From pre-light draw to last puff, the cigar performed above expectations and had great smoke output. Not exactly my cup of tea as it was a little sweeter than I prefer, but I would gladly smoke another. Fantastic smoke if you have under an hour. Nub was the best part. Puff slowly and enjoy the end my friends." -Adam B. (Bushboi)

"This was an enjoyable cigar with distinct, easily discernible flavors which fluctuated in their prominence throughout the smoking experience. It was aided by solid construction and a lack of overall boringness. While not presenting itself as anything groundbreaking, I would certainly smoke this cigar again." -Matt Cade (CADE)
