"Unique smoke"

Review Notes: When I took the cigar out of the wrapper, there was an unfamiliar yet pleasant amora emitting from the wrapper. After the cut, I could tell it would be a tighter draw then most, which turned out to be mostly true. Roasting the cigar produced another unique scent, although not as pleasant as I would expected. However, once I got it puffing away, the flavors were uniquely pleasant. Overall, a pleasant smoke, although the burn got pretty bad towards the end.

Review Notes: Not one of the better smokes I've had, the burn wasn't even and couldn't be corrected. Big canyons. To me it was a little bitter and dry, maybe the shop where I bought it didn't have the humidity right, or I should have put it in my humi for a while. Overall I would not recommend it for the price, there are better options out there.

Review Notes: Finished one of these about an hour ago. Smooth wrapper with a few veins and a well made cap. Impressive looking cigar that had some heft to it as well. Coffee and leather up front with a creamy sweetness on the finish. Burn needed some help and did require a re-light after only letting it sit for five minutes. Draw was just right. Overall, a pretty tasty cigar but the burn issues hurt my scoring of it.

Review Notes: good aroma, something different in the smell and taste, perhaps its the italian tobacco in it, which was pleasant, but it didnt really knock my socks off with flavor. more medium to me than full, but was good- something i wouldnt get all the time- MX2 is way better

"Construction issues"

Review Notes: I am surprised to see that others have not experienced the same burn problems that I have. I enjoy this spoke, but have to say that I have tried them on two separate occasions and experienced the same canoe (or maybe in this case gondola) problem. This is an enjoyable medium bodied smoke. It is smooth, lacking some of the spice that some prefer. Leans more to the coffee undertones. There are simply too many great cigars out there at this price point for me to recomend this cigar. It is certainly not a bad cigar, just not one that I would go out of my way for. Again, maybe just bad luck on the burn problems, so other than that average (6s) across the board.
