"Overall, a very good cigar. With enjoyable flavors of cedar, cinnamon, and leather along with a pepper background. there was a small nicotine buzz that kicked in towards the end but nothing I couldn’t handle. The texture of the smoke was fairly smooth and the temperature was between warm and cool. I would definitely recommend this and put this in my rotation." -Angel M. (Angel)
I liked this cigar quite a bit. While I was initially worried about that strong mesquite woodsiness overpowering any other flavors that might come my way, the cigar managed - and managed well - to balance that with some other flavor notes that made this smoking experience one that I wouldn’t mind at all revisiting." -Matt Cade (CADE)

"The flavors were enjoyable, strength within reason and construction was spot-on. What more could one person ask for in a cigar? It might not have been deadnuts center of my wheelhouse in terms of the flavors, but they were quite enjoyable nonetheless. I really liked this cigar." -Kip (Half Ashed)

"This enjoyable cigar featured great construction from start to finish. While there was not a great deal of complexity present, the transitions in both strength and dominant flavors (especially in the second third) were quite enjoyable. While I wish the creaminess had stuck around longer, the bold cedar and mostly consistent spice danced very well together throughout the smoking experience." -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)

"This was an enjoyable cigar to smoke. A rich char combined nicely with a well balanced cedar. The leather and chocolate kept the flavors in check while the surprising baking spice at the end added an element of sweetness to the finish. I would gladly grab another one." -Gregg (McGreggor57)
"This cigar is all about the delicate transitions! There were quite a few of them in this small cigar. If you are looking for a kick in the teeth, this cigar is not for you. But, if you like light, delicate, and sweet flavor notes this is for you. Would pair perfectly with your morning coffee or any rum-based cocktail. I'm sure a few of these cigars will find it into my personal humidor and hopefully yours too. Enjoy" -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
"Though this cigar was very one dimensional, in my opinion, it was well worth the investment of time. It would pair perfectly with an amaretto heavy cocktail or some fresh almond pastry. If you are a fan of medium body cigars with wonderful construction then this would be the cigar for you. Grab one and give it a shot." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

“It was full enough to keep me puffing, but mild enough for an adventurous noob to stretch their horizons. I’ve seen one other cigar that looked like this, so maybe I can guess what it is, but I can assure you that I’ll have more of these when the reveal happens!” –Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
