"This cigar hit all the right notes for me. Flavors were spot on and bold. They worked so well together. These are the types of cigars I'm drawn to generally. This would definitely be a cigar I'd enjoy after a nice steak dinner. And it's definitely one I'd try again. Either as a fiver or as a box buy. " -Kevin J. (maninblack77)

"If you are a fan of mild cigars this is a real winner. The depth of flavors were terrific, smoke output was phenomenal, and profile changes kept me engaged. I would certainly smoke this again and again. " -Alan (Eulogy)
