“Overall this was a good cigar. Very consistent, flavorful, not terribly complex, but still delicious. Nothing stood out like a beacon for me, it was just easy going and well constructed with enough flavor. An easy recommendation if an affordable stick.” -John A. (Bostoneo)

“This cigar was really really good. From the initial aromas and cold draw, to the nice burn and finished product, there was not much to not enjoy. The subtle notes of cherry jam that came in during the middle really gave this a complex profile. These are very good well-made cigars and I can only hope I have the opportunity to smoke another one.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

“Great cigar! Taste was excellent with an amazing burn. Hard to find anything wrong. The chocolate and earthiness was great. Just the right amount of bitterness to the chocolate flavors so it did not overpower the other flavors. I really enjoyed the raisins and dated in the first and second third. I would have like them to finish off the cigar however I can not complain how it finished with the rustic flavor.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)

“It’s a fantastic cigar. I’m not going to say it will wow you with it’s dynamic profile changes because it won’t. The flavors are the same from beginning to end but they’re crisp and bold the entire time. It just does so many things right that it’s impossible not to recommend and if I was after a great experience that I was just wanting to relax and enjoy smoking I would reach for again and again. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

“While I typically do not prefer cigars that are “one dimensional”, I do appreciate ones that have minimal transitions, with outstanding representations of the flavors that are there. This is one of those cigars. My only complaint is this was a relatively fast burner. It was one that I wished I had a toro version of, cause I wasn’t ready to be done when the nub got to hot to hold! ” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

“A cigar I hated to lose in the process of smoking. Great notes of cherry, earth, leather, cocoa, and oak make this a excellent cigar. Great ash that hung on to the cigar for 30 minutes or better. Five or more of these cigar would round out your humidor perfectly.” -Sean F. (fullermaine)

“My first impressions were negative due to the size of the cigar. Eliminating my bias towards that was easy once I started smoking the cigar. It really was a pleasant and long experience. This is still not necessarily going to be a first choice smoke for me but I can say it was flavorful enough all the way through to work for a niche smoke at the right time for me. Well constructed and good looking, I’d revisit this cigar again.” -Diana (ArmyRN)

“Man…I really enjoyed the flavors of this cigar! I really love coffee and this was coffee for the duration. A funny story on this one is that due to high elevation my jet lighter wouldn’t light. I ended up starting a small campfire by hand with friction and sticks and lit the cigar that way…a first for me, and now I know I’m a survivor…” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

“I think it’s better than the sum of its parts. It smokes great, the ash was impressive, I liked the shape and ascetics of the cigar. It just could have been a bit more interesting in terms of flavor. It’s by no means bland or wispy in flavors but I’d have to be in the mood for a tobacco flavor profile to really enjoy it at the time. Still, I would recommend this if the price was right and the flavors are in your wheelhouse. ” -Alan (Eulogy)
