"Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar. Performance and construction were great and the smoking experience was most enjoyable. Although not overly complex in the tasting department, the flavors I experienced were very enjoyable and tastes my palate could easily relate too. I would certainly not be ashamed to pass this stick out to guest and experienced aficionados who I smoke with on a regular basis. Anxious to see what this stick is so I can pick some more up." -Kyle (kaleehb)
