"The construction really held this cigar back. It was loose, spongy to the touch, and difficult to draw from. The flavors, while not great, were average and it did build to a nice finish." -Alan (Eulogy)

"This was a really great cigar to smoke during my annual camping trip. Wasn't to light and wasn't a pepper bomb. Perfect mix of flavors paired well with a few glasses of scotch by the campfire. These will not disappoint. Enjoy." -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)
"I am a small RG fanboy so that was a good selling point for me right away. Then the flavor profile absolutely blew me away and the burn was close to flawless. I would gladly reach for this cigar again." -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)
I'm very impressed. To be honest, I went into this wondering whether it would be a mediocre smoke, or whether it would be decent. It's far better than I'd hoped. The only thing I've had remotely similar was the Daruma Mutante, which I disliked. The citrus didn't work for me with that stick, but it works so well here. I'm guessing this is going to be a polarizing cigar, with some who love it, and some who hate it, but all will likely admit that the quality is high. I recommend giving it a try!

"Overall, this was a great cigar. The transitions were interesting, I loved the move from pepper and spice to rich and creamy. It's not one that stands out as mind-blowing, but it was enjoyable throughout, and I would very much enjoy smoking more." -Derek (StogieNinja)
"One draw issue aside, this was an excellent smoke, one I really, really hope in on the bargain side of things so I can stock up, but I'm guessing it's likely a premium. Overall it was well constructed, burned great, had excellent thick smoke output, and really well balanced flavor. One I will definitely seek out again, regardless of price! Highly recommended." -Derek (StogieNinja)
"Marvelous from start to finish. Maybe I'm feeling charitable, as I'm smoking this on a great nigh, but it's everything you could want in a cigar. Great draw and burn, complex flavors, satisfyingly thick and creamy smoke. I do wish there had been just a touch more pepper involved, to give it a little more character, but that's a personal palate thing. This was an excellent cigar which could be enjoyed by new smokers and connoisseurs alike, and definitely box-worthy." -Derek (StogieNinja)

"I'd park this firmly in the "good" camp. It was pleasant, and I wouldnt mind smoking another, but it's not something I'll chase. I would be minorly interested to see how a smaller ring gauge would improve the overall experience, but to be honest, I would only pursue that if someone else recommended it. As it stands, this doesn't stand out to me at all." -Derek (StogieNinja)
