"Overall, a very good cigar. With enjoyable flavors of cedar, cinnamon, and leather along with a pepper background. there was a small nicotine buzz that kicked in towards the end but nothing I couldn’t handle. The texture of the smoke was fairly smooth and the temperature was between warm and cool. I would definitely recommend this and put this in my rotation." -Angel M. (Angel)

"Not an enjoyable cigar. Oily wrapper that burns the cigar quickly. Uneven burn with multiple touch-ups. Rough draw in some spots. The only good thing was the flavor notes. Notes of salt, chocolate, hickory, and bitter tea. Nice grey ash that holds on for about an inch. Not a cigar I'd want to try again." -Sean F. (fullermaine)
