"This is an overall very mild cigar featuring an initially spicy retrohale that downshifts quickly (too quickly) into a strictly mineral profile and the draw never delivers any flavors other than cedar and a very mild leather. I disliked the battle with the tight draw but once I, heroically some might say, conquered that obstacle the cigar performed ""just fine"" and delivered ""just fine"" faint flavors from start to finish. Would I smoke it again? Probably not on purpose but perhaps I just got a dud and, if I come across it again at a low price point, I'd almost certainly give it a second chance. Don’t we all deserve a second chance to make a first impression? I know I do and, I’ll admit it, fairly often…" -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)
"Overall, a great-tasting medium-bodied cigar. However, the flaws in the construction and the tighter draw made this not as favorable as I had hoped. Not that it was bad, it just had so much more potential! " -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)

"Personally, it is a miss for me. I found the flavors to be muted with a thin body and poor burn. Hopefully, this is an outlier and the others had a more positive experience. The way that it is smoking to me, I'm not sure where it would fall into my rotation. It isn't bold enough for a nighttime smoke and it's too mild to stand up against a cup of coffee. " -Alan (Eulogy)
"I normally shy away from medium bodied cigars but this definitely changed my mind. It held a wide array of flavors that truly worked well together. I would give this cigar a 95 rating. Definitely box worthy in my opinion. I would love to see how it pairs with a chai latte or cuban coffee. Excellent cigar. " -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
