Review Notes: Great cigar. A little different to lite because of foot, but a smooth and creamy cigar. I had no problems with the three that I smoked. Passed some on to friends who enjoyed it evan if it was too light for their taste.

"Tastey Tunneler"

Review Notes: I first lit this cigar and it became very harsh for the first 5 minutes. I'm not sure if it's a fluke or if that's normal and just the initial bite of the shaggy foot. After that, the cigar took on a whole new life. It became creamy, and then developed a mild chocolate flavor. With about 1/3 of the cigar left, the cigar began to tunnel very badly, then went out. I had to relight. The cigar then developed a light cedar note. As it burned down, it began to burn unevenly, and I discarded it. The wrapper was very nice, clean, and the veins in the leaf were healthy and pronounced. The color was a nice dark shade. This cigar really lives up to the reviews I've read-great flavor but with noticeable burning inconsistencies. Overall, I was very pleased.

"Great taste/terrible construction"

Review Notes: The theme to this cigar was great taste with aweful construction. This cigar had potential to be one of my favorites if the construction would have been more solid. My first experience with a shaggy footed cigar, so I can't compare the poor burn to another cigar. For the first 1/3 the burn was extremely uneven and canoed very badly. This cigar needed way to much maintainence to be a relaxing smoke. Needed constant relightings to encourage an even burn. After the first ash, tunneling became an issue. The taste for the first 1/3 of the cigar was phenominal. Very creamy buttery smoke. Unfortunately, due to the poor construction and burn of the cigar the taste after the first third was compromised. The constant relightings and tunneling ultimately gave the cigar a harsh ashy finish. Previous to this the finish was quite enjoyable. If the construction on this cigar was better I would have a constant supply. I'l experiment with the non-shaggy footed version of this cigar to find out if this gives a solution to the construction issues. Because of the flavor, I would give this cigar a second chance to show me it can do better. Flavor rated was given pre-construction issues.
