Review Notes: A rough looking box pressed cigar. It was a little on the veiny side with some tooth. The pre-light draw was tight and I was concerned that it would be a tough smoke. It light easily and started the first couple of puffs were indeed tight, but it loosened up quickly. Unfortunately, at about the same time the wrapper split in several places. This problem continued throughout the cigar. As soon as I smoked through a cracked section, a new section would split. It required a few touch-ups throughout. I had a hard time placing flavors other than a persistent nutty flavor. I was hoping for a better smoke. I'll chalk it up to a new humidor that took a while to stabilize. It was definitely stored at high humidity (mid 70s) for a couple of weeks, but it was at a consistent 67 for the last 4+ weeks.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (11) No (8)
