Review Notes: This cigar comes with hype and, in my opinion, is well-deserved. Dark, oily (almost oscuro) maduro wrapper with minimal veins and no soft spots. Attractive torpedo vitola comes wrapped in cedar. Excellent prelight aroma. Easy light. Drew a little hot to start with thick, white smoke. Began with intense black pepper and spice, then quickly transitioned into a rich, complex, and bold blend of dark chocolate, burnt espresso, and raw cocoa. These flavors remained present throughout the whole smoke, though became smoother as I continued. By the halfway point, I detected a faint oaky note as well as a floral note that grew stronger by the last 1/3. The burn was a bit of an issue, as it almost immediately started to tunnel. The burn was also uneven (canoed) through the whole 1 hour experience and required frequent attention. Nevertheless, the flavor was unbelievable. The Vitamin N was noticable by the halfway point, and intensified by the end. Definitely one to be enjoyed after a meal and not before. All in all, a very bold and flavorful cigar that deserves the hype.
