Review Notes: This is a cigar Iíve been reading about for a while, but never actually bought or got around to trying, so I figured what the heck, todayís a good day. It wasnít a tremendously attractive cigar with a rough looking wrapper, and its bland band presentation and when I lit it up and took the first puff I thought I wasnít going to like the cigar at all, but it turned around. The ash was grey and flakey and not real sturdy, which caused me to ash it more that I normally like too. The draw was just a little loose, but the smoke was thin, and it didnít match the draw at all. The burn was even throughout the entire smoke. The flavor profile in this cigar was pretty great. The first third was grassy with floral hints and some honey undertones. Toward the middle third it became more of a grassy/woody core, which eventually faded into an all woody core, with a good mix of white pepper and the original honey undertones. I didnít smoke much of the last third of the cigar, because the flavors became quite bland and then it went out on me. It was definitely a medium bodied smoke, and would pair nicely with hot tea. This cigar was different than a lot of the cigars I smoke, and would have been better had it not had as many construction flaws. Iíd smoke another one someday, but not for twelve bucks!
