I am very impressed with this cigar overall and wish I had more to smoke. The profile changes kept me engaged throughout and the changes were so dramatic that it almost felt like smoking multiple great cigars. The burn was razor sharp but the foot of the cigar was a little loose which made the smoke output a little thin till the final third.
This year, we decided to give you a tour of the show through the pictures we took while we were there. Some are of new items, and some are just things we thought were interesting. These manufacturers were not sharing booth space, we just combined them into a single slideshow due to the number of pictures we had from each.

"Overall, this was a great cigar. It had a perfect mix of flavors throughout. Lots of great spice all the way through. Had a nice creamy flavor with some sweetness that perfectly balanced out the great spice. I would smoke this again in a heartbeat." -Wes (SosaCub4Life)

"This cigar was truly great. I smoke a lot of good cigars for this site, but this one stands out above the rest. This is one of the best I have smoked for the site, and it deserves one of the highest ranking we have given. I hope the other reviewers shared my experience. I will be buying a box of whatever this is, assuming I can. The cigar takes you through a journey around the flavor wheel, never getting dull, never getting bitter, never disappointing you. This was a pleasure to smoke, and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending a box." -Emmett (rhetorik)

"This was an interesting cigar that hit me in just the right mood. I was quite pleased with my beverage pairing and found the deep flavors of the smoke to be quite complementary to the chocolate stout. I don't think I would choose this cigar as the first of the day because it's almost like a meal in itself...a hearty steak meal, with all the fixings! Quite good and quite satisfying." -Jason H.

"I enjoyed this cigar. The cold aroma of maple leaves was unique, and the mix of caramel and cream and leather and maple and pepper and baking spices and sweetness was quite enjoyable, and changed frequently enough to keep me interested. Recommended." -Derek (StogieNinja)
