“This sample was not only a joy to look at but was also pleasant journey to smoke. This cigar presented creamy cedar, citrus, roasted nuts, sweet fruit, doughy bread, hay, and a touch of cinnamon. In addition to that.. through the nose was espresso, dark chocolate notes, hay, earth, and black pepper. If you have the time to smoke a cigar for 2+ hours grab a few of these, and however many hands this blend took to come to fruition was well worth the work.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)
“With flavors in the first and middle third that were pleasant and consistent, but not boring, I was really hoping the cigar would finish out the same way. Even though it didn’t, I can’t complain. While I didn’t enjoy the flavors as much at the end, they were not bad, I was just hoping for more of the good stuff from earlier. All in all, this one was pleasant and classic. One I would probably try to smoke again.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

“With a lot of cigars I find the cedar to be a bit heavy handed, not so with this one. The transition from a mature cedar to slightly charred then to a young sweeter one was very nice. The addition of hay, grass and leather paired well with the background flavors of nuts, coffee and cocoa. This cigar certainly offered me a very pleasant smoking experience.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)
“Because the flavors were so nice, I would look past the burn issue and try this cigar again. The mix of sweetness and spice was very pleasing and I would reach for this cigar again.” –Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)
