"Pretty much any amount of inattention would result in a relight or touch up. Half of the cigar would burn and it would take some time for the other half to catch up. There were no visually identifiable flaws, but I am sure there had to be something off kilter about the construction to have such a tight draw and tough burn. I would not be eager to smoke it again, but it was not unsmokable." -Ryan H. (Ryan H.)
"This was a great little cigar. Nice transitions, and a flavor complexity kind of right in the middle. Not too simple, not overly complex. Burn and draw made for a fun enjoyment factor, and the flavors definitely leave you wanting there to be more to smoke when it is done. Mild-mannered, and no stronger than medium, this would be a good anytime cigar, especially if you are wanting to reach for something with some good flavors and don't have a ton of time to sit and enjoy. " -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
Amazing would be an understatement for this fine luxurious smoke. Ample amounts of complexity and well balanced medium bodied flavors were extracted and deeply appreciated as the blender really knows how to make a grade A smoke. I cannot sing praises high enough... you MUST... in fact I demand you to buy a Bespoke Basilica A and experience what this cigar has to offer... you will be forever spoiled.
