"This was an interesting cigar that featured highly enjoyable flavors, nice transitions, and the finish was the star of the show… until that harshness crept in towards the end. That harsh, somewhat bitter aspect led me to slam the brakes on the smoking experience sooner than I would have liked and it’s disappointing because I was curious as to what the final act would be. Sadly, I’ll never know BUT the first two thirds were indeed very good and based on that alone I would be more than willing to give this particular cigar a second chance." -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC
Overall this cigar was a shoulder shrug. I didn’t dislike it, and I didn’t love it. I would give it another chance to be fair, but I could only see myself buying these if they were a great price and I was going golfing.” -Jack (Jack_H)
