Review Notes: Nothing special here. Attractive figurado reminiscent of an AF Short Story. Tawny brown wrapper with minimal veins. Solid construction without soft spots. No prelight aroma to speak of. Extraordinarily easy light given the tapered foot. Smooth draw. Very dense gray-white ash. Razor sharp burn without the need for relights or corrections. The flavor was rather one-dimensional. It started with white pepper and very mild sweet cedarwood, but the flavor never opened up and remained adynamic throughout its course. I would even go so far as to call it bland. I couldn't help but to compare it to the AFSS, which is a much more complex smoke. For the money, I would skip this and go for the SS, and I am even partial to the Gran Cru line, in general. Wouldn't buy more.
