Overall, this was a very good, smooth and velvety smoking experience. The first and second third's core flavors of sweetness, earthiness and floral notes was delicious. The last third was unfortunate as it was mainly just dry wood and black pepper. Hopefully, more age will change that. I would recommend this to someone that enjoys a lot of Cuban cigars. The cigar is fairly nuanced without having the spice to beat you over the head. I would easily seek out a fiver of these." -Jiunn (jliu)
"This one was a bit one dimensional for my liking, although the flavors presented were solid and well balanced. The glimpses of coffee and chocolate were encouraging but never developed enough to add to the profile. A good cigar for the golf course." -Gregg (McGreggor57)
"Overall, a decent cigar with very good flavors, body, and some decent complexity. I’d smoke this one if it is affordable as an everyday smoke, but not something I’d load up on boxes with. Definitely worth checking out though!" -John A. (Bostoneo)

"It seems that lately many of the cigars I have had are good to great through the first two thirds but as I approach the end the flavors become bitter and almost unpalatable. This one did start with a nice coffee flavor with hints of black licorice and cinnamon. There was even a nice after taste like a cinnamon dolce coffee that grew sweet over time. However, as I approached the end the flavors left and I was left with bitter flavors. Like the end of the pot of coffee. I would like this one in my humidor." -Eric (smalls29)
"I really enjoyed the peek-a-boo with the spiciness at the beginning of each third. The first and final thirds offered the best flavors while the middle section was a let down for me. Sadly, the wrapper coming apart near the end really hurt the overall experience." -Gregg (McGreggor57)
"Overall this cigar was very mild, very smooth, very one dimensional. No pepper spice at anywhere during the smoke. There are some people out there that like a super mild, no spice Connecticut. I am not one of those people. Even though this cigar was extremely well made, it's just not my thing." -Wes (SosaCub4Life)
