"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)

"My vocabulary of superlatives are inadequate to do this justice. Easily one of the best, and most memorable cigars I've ever had. Complex, and really nicely nuanced.

"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)
"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)
