"This cigar wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t complex, and it was rough goings early on with a tight draw that eventually opened up to acceptable levels of airflow. While I wouldn’t seek out this cigar to smoke again, to use a favorite line my hero Larry David, “having said that” I could think of worse ways to spend 52 minutes. " -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)
"I really enjoyed this cigar. Transition of flavors was noticeable, but subtle. Draw, burn, finish, flavors, construction, complexity, all admirable. Ultimately, I would buy this cigar." -Randy B. (randobush)

"I really dug this cigar even though it's not something that's in my normal flavor profile. While the flavors were consistent throughout they were fairly satisfying. I really enjoyed the saltiness begging me to have something close at hand to drink. The burn was excellent. The ash fell through each third. This cigar was just a solid performer from start to finish." -Isaac M. (The Nothing)
"This cigar hit on all cylinders for me... construction, draw, flavors... I’m a definite fan of this flavor profile and would recommend this to anyone who can handle full flavors and strength...I love it! My only complaint would be the resting aroma... it was not nearly as pleasant as the flavors and was sharp and harsh. Fortunately, I got to smoke this excellent cigar and enjoy the flavors it presented. "-Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
"Pretty solid medium bodied cigar. Not fully my cup of tea, but there were aspects of it that I certainly enjoyed. The transitions from the early portion to the mid portion as well as the mid range to the finale were also really elegant. The final portion was really the best part for my taste, and it wasn't really a chore to get there." -John I. (John I.)
"Any cigar that does not become bitter near the end is a good one. The spices for most of the time were a nice blend of cinnamon and nutmeg with a great spice tingle. Towards the end the black licorice came in but was not over bearing. All in all this is one that will pair well with a single malt scotch. It would be a nice addition to my humidor." -Eric (smalls29)

"Overall I liked this cigar. The flavor was good and had some strength but wasn’t in your face with it. I really enjoy a cigar that has a natural sweetness to the tobacco. This had some nice sweetness to it." -Matt H. (Mattehh)
