"There are some that would call this your grandfather's Connecticut cigar. I personally am not a fan of that flavor profile but I know the majority of the smoking community are. So this would be a winner for the fan of a cigar that is heavy on the cedar, vegetal, and pepper notes. This could make a great everyday cigar for that fan base and should find a home in many humidors." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
