This cigar has a great appearance. The light brown wrapper is completely flawless. There is multiple caps on this cigar, all of which lay perfectly flush. There isn’t a single thick vein on this cigar, a couple really small ones, but nothing bad. This is one solid stick, the foot appears to be tightly packed. There is a nice earthy sweet aroma coming from this stick as well.
As soon as I cut and lit this fantastic stick, the flavors came out immediately. There a nice mild spice right off the start. Along with the nice mild spice, there is a strong earthiness that is very nice. Shortly into the stick, the spice dies down and gives way to the earthy flavors. There is a nice sweet cedar flavor that comes out after the spice dies down. The cedar and strong earthiness stay prominent until the halfway point.
Around the half way point, the spice comes back into play. The spice and cedar combination leads to a very enjoyable flavor profile. This flavor stays relatively consistent until the last couple inches. The finish becomes kind of grassy. The nice earthy tones really pick up. The spice, yet again, dies down to a nice accent to the earthy and woody notes.
The ash on this cigar was something to look at. The ash held on for about an inch and a half to two inches at a time. It was a nice medium shade of gray and layered nicely. The burn was even, except for one spot where it canoed slightly. It eventually evened itself out. The draw was a little tight, but it wasn’t bad at all. The smoke was light gray and very thick. The aroma was quite earthy, but nice overall.
This was a fantastic cigar that I am glad I got the opportunity to smoke. For those that have not had this one, try it, if you can get it. This cigar has a great flavor profile, and isn’t to strong. It has a nice mild to medium body that most smokers can handle. This cigar easily gets a 8 out of 10 in my book.
