"This was a tale of transitions as the cigar changed so much from segment to segment. I love the fact that it never was boring and eased me into the final portion which was large and in charge in regard to flavor and nicotine power. I absolutely did not want this cigar to end and only put it down when I couldn’t hold it due to heat. Absolutely recommended!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

"Excellent cigar! This cigar is definitely one that is within my wheelhouse. A cigar that is focused on flavor over strength is always a win for me. Also, a cigar (such as this) that builds flavors throughout the entire smoking experience keeps things interesting and engaging. I will buy a fiver or tener with no hesitation." -Jiunn (jliu)

"Flavor profile notwithstanding, this was a smooth and easy smoke. If you're a fan of floral cigars, with a simple expression that you don't have to think a lot about, this could make a nice Sunday morning cigar with a cup of tea and a good book. But it's a miss for me." -Vance T. (Vance)

"Overall a great smoke. It is rare that I smoke anything down to the point where fingers get singed anymore, but this one was too good to let go. Definitely worthy of making a box purchase. " -Dave W. (mdwest)
"This smoke didn't feature a rollercoaster of transitions or over-the-top complexity and in my opinion, those qualities are certainly not prerequisites of an incredible cigar. Rather, I tend to put a premium on a stick that intrigues my palate with abundant flavors that are not only smooth but also balanced enough to keep my attention. This cigar accomplished all of that and more while maintaining similar flavor profiles from start to finish. What stood out for me the most was how smooth the smoke was from the first puff to the last which ultimately led to the incredible smoking experience. Simply put, this is just another banger that I can't wait to add to my collection!" -Noah S. (Noah)
"Overall, this was an enjoyable cigar with very mild flavors, it remained medium bodied and light throughout the experience. The smoke started off fairly creamy and dried out throughout the cigar but never to a point of dislike. I would definitely recommend this to individuals with a lighter palette and would consider smoking again for sure. It would go well with any light flavor drink from clear soft drinks to lager beers and white wines." -Angel M. (Angel)
"Anxiously awaiting the reveal on this one. The flavors were right up my alley, and performance was strong. I'd smoke this one again anytime." -Dave (mdwest)
"Overall, the cigar was a pleasant experience with a decent level of complexity. The predominant flavors are that of leather, tobacco and cedar. There is also a decent amount of pepper that persists throughout the cigar. I would definitely smoke this one again, but no super premium." -Sandeep (Djangos)
