“This was a fantastic cigar. There was a lot going on with it. It was very creamy with cedar notes along with a sugary sweetness that lingered on my lips and to top that off there was a yeast doughnut flavor on the retro! C’mon! Pick up a box now! I just know this would have paired wonderfully with a cup of coffee on a Sunday morning. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)Read More
“I’ll be the first to say this vitola was not my cup of tea and was potentially a tough cigar for me due to the size. I can lose interest in a larger vitola if the flavors don’t progress enough. The balance between progression and consistency can be a fine line for my palette. However, the consistency of this smoke was impressive in all areas, flavor, burn, draw, and construction. So, regardless of my personal preferences in vitola, this was a very decent cigar that I would burn again in the right circumstance.” -Diana (ArmyRN)Read More
“This is a very good cigar and it is very good because it is unique. The first half of the cigar exhibited oak, peat and moss and other very enjoyable flavors. The retro had a flirting chocolate and a cream kaboom in the 3/3. Age this cigar and dollars to donuts you’ll be rewarded. Dank flavor cigar. 88-90 right now. 90-92 with age potential. ” -Matt C.

“Overall, this is a very good cigar that will only benefit with a little more humidor time, say 3-6 months. I think this cigar might incorporate an Ecuadorian wrapper, due to the flavor profile (grass) however with its rosado shade it has me second guessing myself. I would easily recommend this cigar to a cigar newbie (on a full stomach) or a seasoned cigar enthusiast. This is a smoke I hope to get the chance to reach for again and again.” -Matt C.

“Two words that would aptly describe this cigar would be Solid and Smooth. This is the embodiment of both. I say this would be the perfect cigar for a beginner, but not as an insult or slander, but because it is so well constructed and approachable. This is a great cigar and one that I can’t wait to see what it is because it has me stumped.” -Jack (Jack_H)Read More
“This was a different than normal experience for me. I have not had too many fruit forward cigars. This one was quite nice. The balance of blackberries, coupled with a nice pepper finish to start, was very enjoyable and had me wanting more cigars in this area. Grab one of these and enjoy the nuances.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)Read More
“As a whole, this cigar was a very pleasant wine and crackers smoke. The initial cocoa and finish of the leather notes was very enjoyable. Most things about this cigar had high end status about them. The flavor profile was quite enjoyable and the light and go and no worry was excellent. Great job to the cigar company that put this out. Grab some if you can because you will enjoy.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)Read More
“Normally, “one dimensional” would be used as a way to complain about a cigar, but in this case it is not. The one dimension presented was very good. Flavors were solid and construction was great. I’d be interested in picking some more of these up for sure.” -Dave (mdwest)Read More

“This could easily become my go to morning smoke with a cup of coffee. The mild beginning transitioned to some bolder flavors nicely. Each third developed a distinct profile and stayed true. The leather really balanced the char and pepper, with the dark roast coffee at the end being a pleasant surprise.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)Read More
