"This cigar hit all of my sweet spots in terms of flavor. Peppery, leathery, with hints of scotch whiskey toward the end.

"Overall this was a very good cigar experience. I would recommend this cigar to the 20 year old cigar aficionado or 80 year old novice, it is that of an all around good cigar experience with flavors that excite the palate from start to finish. As for me, if this cigar is available in the robusto vitola, I will be grabbing 10 of them for my personal humidor." -Matt C. (Big Matt)
