"This was really a nice cigar. It looked special at the beginning and quickly proved to be special once the flame was applied. The initial mild flavors attracted my interest and the gradual increase in intensity was perfect to end my day. I could easily see myself smoking this on a regular basis..." -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
"One draw issue aside, this was an excellent smoke, one I really, really hope in on the bargain side of things so I can stock up, but I'm guessing it's likely a premium. Overall it was well constructed, burned great, had excellent thick smoke output, and really well balanced flavor. One I will definitely seek out again, regardless of price! Highly recommended." -Derek (StogieNinja)

"The flavors were enjoyable, strength within reason and construction was spot-on. What more could one person ask for in a cigar? It might not have been deadnuts center of my wheelhouse in terms of the flavors, but they were quite enjoyable nonetheless. I really liked this cigar." -Kip (Half Ashed)
"Magnificent cigar. I'm not a boxed press enthusiast, but I really enjoyed this one despite the format. The flavors nailed a lot of my personal preferences featuring loads of creaminess, leather; ranging from soft and supple to bold and aggressive, and throughout offered a balanced sweetness. Additional notes of mineral and salt played against the sweet creaminess nicely. " -John I. (John I.)
