Review Notes: Nice, strong smoke. Toothy, dark brown dry wrapper with small veins. Somewhat soft in the distal 1/3, but otherwise solid. Easy light. Burned a little hot at first with a bold pepper bite. Smoothed out and transitioned into dark chocolate, burnt espresso, and leather in the first half. At the halfway mark, the dominant note bcame a strong cedary flavor that reminded me of a Fonseca Serie F Robusto. Spicy and complex the whole way down. Defiitely had some kick, with enough Vitamin N to give me a little headspin, though I also made the mistake of smoking it on an empty stomach - something I would not recommend. Tons of billowy white smoke and a flaky gray ash. All in all, a bold, tasty smoke that lasted just over an hour. Would pair well with any scotch or single barrel Bourbon. Would smoke after a meal for sure. Very nice. I'm pretty tough on my ratings, in general, but I enjoyed this stick. Has its place in my rotation. Bought a box.
