"Overall I did enjoy this blend and would smoke it again. The opening was a bit underwhelming with the pure mineral flavor, but as it warmed up and the toast and roasted nut flavors kicked in it became more enjoyable. The occasional citrus note did add a bit of interest which also helped." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)

"Though this cigar lacked body, in my opinion, I can not overstate how good this cigar was. I could see some people calling it one dimensional but in all honesty this cigar was a flavor bomb. Forgoing strength and body for the benefit of making a more flavorful blend. This cigar is perfect for anyone looking to expand their palate away from the light body, airy, cigars of the world. Pick one up and decided for yourself." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
"During the first half of the first third, I wasn’t sure this was the cigar for me. Into the second third the aforementioned flavors of creamy baking spice, salted butter, and slightly savory paprika, mixed in with black coffee periodically, made for some great flavors. Retrohale was very pleasing throughout. The burn was razor sharp and the entire experience and construction were flawless. Overall a very good experience. PS… And that ash!" -Randy B. (randobush)

"This cigar had some fantastic flavor to start off. From the looks of this dark wrapper I was expecting some good dark earthy flavors. That is exactly what I was getting. Molasses, spice and wood notes mixed in made this very enjoyable. With that being said, right around the half way point it took a turn in the less enjoyably direction. The cigar was burning hot turning most of the flavor to char. Had to take more time in between puffs to lessen that. Although it eventually subsided the damage I think was done and just mushed all the flavors together to get a mostly musty earth. Not how I would have liked it to end." -Jake P. (Jake P.)
“I really enjoyed this cigar. I’d happily burn these everyday. It’s not tremendously dynamic in terms of transitions, but the core flavor here is a bit out of the ordinary. Most dry, woody cigars I’ve had haven’t had the potency on display here. Great good stuff. ” –John I. (John I.)
