The burn on needed a couple of touch-ups, but it burned pretty evenly. There was very little resistance on the draw which is what I prefer. Construction was top notch in my opinion, there was plenty of ash and smoke and the cigar stayed cool throughout the duration of the smoke. Overall I liked this cigar, it wasn't mind blowing, but they all can't be right? Anyway this was a nice smooth smoke from first puff to the last. The cigar never got above a medium in strength and dare I say it was almost mild. There was some creaminess along with a surprisingly cherry sweetness and oak flavors. I would definitely smoke this again.
