"It's rare to say I've had an epic experience with these blind reviews, but this is definitely one of those times. The flavor profile hit my palate in all the right areas. Chocolate, cocoa, black pepper, earth, and baking spices came together to create an amazing smoking experience. I can't wait to hear what this cigar is because I'll definitely be looking to buy a box. Thanks for the chance to try this." -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
"Overall, a very good cigar. With enjoyable flavors of cedar, cinnamon, and leather along with a pepper background. there was a small nicotine buzz that kicked in towards the end but nothing I couldn’t handle. The texture of the smoke was fairly smooth and the temperature was between warm and cool. I would definitely recommend this and put this in my rotation." -Angel M. (Angel)

"Overall this was a very good cigar. There was plenty to like about this stick in its presentation, to is flavors, and to its performance. This cigar started out with a bang by giving me heavy chocolate soufflé flavors then switching it up to walnuts and eventually giving me must notes all bringing me cream and butter on the retro and black pepper on my palate that would not leave......it's just lingered. I would venture to say this is at a minimum worth picking up a fiver, and I am curious to see what I smoked. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
Luciano Cigars (formerly ACE Prime) announced today that they are launching their US distribution from their West Palm Beach, FL warehouse. The company has also recently expanded executive and sales teams.
"Overall, this was a good cigar I felt medium to full-bodied, you definitely want to eat something before you tackle this stick. I prefer a creamier smoke and this one was a bit dry but not enough to be a deterrent. I would definitely smoke this cigar again maybe ending it a little sooner before the harshness took over. All the way through the first, second, and about the middle of the final third the flavors remained fairly consistent with small background changes. For me, the leather, dark chocolate, and cedar dominated regularly throughout the smoke. For me, this will definitely be an evening cigar maybe with an iced coffee to balance out the bit of dryness. Overall, a good cigar and I would definitely smoke it again. " -Angel M. (Angel)
