"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)
"This is a cigar for an experienced smoker... lots of flavor, but it really packs a punch! I’m certain that I’ll buy these once I know what it is, and I’ll certainly recommend it to my friends who like a strong cigar. For me, this hit the spot!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

"While not the most complex, the flavor profile is definitely something of interest for me. There's a potency in it that I enjoy and it sticks around the entire time. Between that and it being well constructed, I have no issues suggesting you at least check these out. Unless of course, you prefer things on the lighter or milder side. Then maybe not so much.

"Overall I really enjoyed this cigar. The strength picked up as the cigar went along. There was always a nice spice throughout the cigar that started with some pepper but was more of a chili spice. The smoke was very thick and creamy." -Wes (SosaCub4Life)
"Though it smoked tighter than I like, the flavors were very enjoyable. It is a nice after-dinner Maduro with heavy chocolate, molasses, and toffee notes. The addition of increasing spices throughout the blend hit my palate well but I could see it putting off some who would just enjoy the sweetness of the cigar." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
