"In the end, this was quite enjoyable. They were great flavor transitions and it was a cohesive mix. There are plenty of flavors to be found, and I appreciated how the body progressed throughout the cigar. I can see some people smoking this too fast and missing some of that but otherwise, it's a good cigar." -Isaac M. (The Nothing)
"This was a intense flavorful smoke with a ton of smoke output during the whole time smoking it. The flavors were a really nice sweet cedar flavor with some red pepper spice on the tongue like red pepper flake on a pizza. The retrohale was intense black pepper then fade some then picked back up at the end." -Chad M. (Chad Tchad)
"Overall, this was a good cigar, it started off better than it finished however. The flavors went from sweet tobacco and vanilla changing to a harsher sweet tobacco with the vanilla going away. The only other flavor transition I picked up was in the final third it gained a coffee and cedar taste. Had it not been for the issues of construction and the multiple relites it would have been much more enjoyable. I would definitely try this cigar again hoping for better performance as the flavors were decent." -Angel M. (Angel)
"A nice quick morning smoke. A very simple cigar with notes of bread, sweet tea, and lots of oak. Minor touch-up is needed to help with the burn. A cigar I'd seek out and add to my humidor. Pairs well with a cup of coffee and a fire." -Sean F. (fullermaine)
"I enjoyed the transition from a light sweet cedar start to more medium earth and leather to the slightly fuller smokey pepper ending. To me, this would be a great mid-morning cigar to get your taste buds kicked into gear. I couldn't ask for much more from the burn or the construction and will absolutely revisit this blend in the future." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)"
"Overall, this was an excellent cigar. It started off a little rough, but the rough patch only lasted for just a moment. Shortly after a few draws, everything transitioned into a much smoother and more flavorful cigar, so don’t let the first few puffs fool you. It does have a little nicotine punch, so maybe not for someone too sensitive to nicotine. The dominating flavors of Coco, baking spice, and cedar along with the leather kicking in towards the end, made for an overall enjoyable experience. I did find that although the smoke was smooth during the second and final third, it did dry out my mouth a little bit, so you would want to have something on hand to drink while smoking this cigar. I would definitely recommend this to individuals with a more robust pallet and would definitely smoke this again. " -Angel M. (Angel)
"This one didn’t have a hard time keeping me interesting with a fair amount of shifts. Some worked better than others for me, but it was still easy to appreciate. Great construction added some extra enjoyment as well." -Chris M. (Chris)
"I enjoyed the cigar but it was a bit monotone since there was no evolution in flavors. If you like a strong, meaty profile this is probably a good bet for you." -Alan (Eulogy)

"This was a much larger cigar than I normally like to smoke. However, I went into it very open-mindedly and found the flavor notes in the first third and partway through the second third to be very good with lots of spiciness. I liked the mix of earthiness mixed with the spice and was looking forward to how the cigar progressed. Withdraw problems leading to burn issues, I truly lost interest halfway through the second third. I muddled my way through the rest of the cigar hoping that that full flavor from the beginning of the cigar would re-emerge. I would try the cigar again, but it definitely would suit me in a smaller vitola." -Diana (ArmyRN)
