Review Notes: I got this as a 'freebie' from the local shop with spending above some set amount, so I didn't know what to expect. Being a heavy-bodied maduro type, I wasn't expecting the complexity that this one provided! VERY pleasantly surprised! Yes, I would say this is a mild cigar (medium to some, but I still say it is mild). The flavors changed throughout, from toast (the first inch or so) to a very mild hot-pepper (not black- pepper, but jalapeno-type) in the next inch or two, mellowing to a creamy yet volumous smoke in the last third. The construction had many veigns, but burn was consistent. The aftertaste was the only negative, as it had a bitter 'been at the bar all night' smell that wasn't appealing to me. All in all, I'd say this was an 8, but one of the best mild cigars I've had. Note the 8 is more for my bias towards stronger cigars, versus the 9 that this likely deserves if rated just as itself as a mild cigar.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (6) No (9)
