"Mild indeed~"

Review Notes: It has a viney silky milk chocolate wrapper. Cut wasnt that smooth, and the cap construction is crumbly. Pre-light draw is loose, and has a light woody taste to it. The cigar is easy to light, and the burn is uneven. The cigar has a strong cocoa and light woody and toasty taste. It is a mild cigar with strong tastes, but the tastes are somehow undetectable. Even though its a mild smoke, my nostril still feels like razor burn after exhaling smoke from it. It becomes smoother after a third has passed. Ash is grayish-white, flaky and not firm. It almost feels like smoking a Belinda 1835, but the cigar has a stronger taste. Have to relight the cigar after the first half has passed. Draw becomes very smooth during the last third, and seems spicy towards the end (but is it the flavor or is it because its stronger toward the end?). A pretty good morning cigar I would say.

"Where's the flavor."

Review Notes: Choose your drink pairing for this cigar carefully. I reccomend something with less flavor than water. No strength, no complexity, very little flaver. Even draw with a predictable good burn. The wrapper was nice and velvety smooth, but the lace of any kind of robust flavor, really made this a dog of a smoke. This thing is like a trendy Macanudo. If you like mild smokes, stay with the tried and true Mac.

Review Notes: A mild smoke which offers a pleasant bevy of flavor, but could use more of a kick of spice. Best enjoyed in the morning with a cup of coffee.

Review Notes: Good burn, even, loose draw... On the mild as advertised... Not much flavor...typical of a Conn wrapper...very light hints of coco towards the end... If you looking for a cheap mild cigar its worth a try...
