"As a fan of heavier, more full bodied cigars, this was a nice change of pace for me on this cold winter day. Loved the citrus and oak notes I got from this, especially on the retrohale. Would I buy a box, probably not but its definitely worth a fiver. Enjoyable overall. " -Kevin J. (maninblack77)

"Pretty solid effort. A really darkly attractive cigar with big rich flavors in the earthy/woody range with some interesting side notes of herbs and spices coming in at a few points. I'd love to stick a box of these in the back of my cabinet and forget about them for a year or two. I'll bet they really sing with a little age. " -John I. (John I.)
