Review Notes: The cigar was nice as far as looks are concerned. It had little humi-time (2 weeks) so MAYBE that was an issue... with that said, off to the races. I punch anything but a torp, so my cap was fine. The light was effortless, thanks a ton to the super loose draw. The taste at first was really nice, subtle hints of both Vintage 90 and even the Edge... maybe this was a mixer-upper of short tobacco from the scraps? It would explain the loose-as-a-goose draw! For the first half I was mildly impressed: then the loose draw took over and the cigar over heated like a Yugo in LA traffic. The entire last third of the cigar was all about puff... puff... let it sit for a good minute. If you pulled too fast, the heat burnt the tobacco and you were gifted with an acrid, fired up taste that TWICE made me step back. I feel that the blend is good, the wrapper was tasty but nowhere near as potent as a 90 or OWR (love the wrappers!) and let the filler do the talking. All in all, it was an OK smoke. I'll let the others age a bit before trying them out.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (3) No (2)
