"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.)

"Overall I enjoyed this cigar. The transition from dry and earth to bakers spice and bread notes was a pleasant surprise. The lemon zest on the finish definitely added to the overall experience " -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
"If the burn hadn't been so impossible to deal with, this would have been quite a decent cigar. The blend had some pleasant flavors, and the smoke output was on point. Unfortunately, the burn just knocked it down several notches for me. I'm hopeful that this was just a fluke, and the other sticks burn perfectly, but mine just did not." -Nate H. (SineQuaNon)
"Although this particular cigar was very light bodied and had a very open draw, I enjoyed it a lot. This would make an excellent morning cigar to pair with a light coffee or hot tea. In the afternoon, pair with a light pilsner or kolsch beer. " -James H. (Keikan Jim)

“I really enjoyed this cigar. Even though it was a bit one dimensional, it had very good flavors and it’s size made for a nice quick smoke. I would definitely smoke another one of these if I was given an opportunity.” –Alan (Eulogy)

“It started out with some spice and then transitioned more into the nutmeg and all spice. The final third mellowed out. The strength did pick up as the cigar went on.” -Ashley
