Review Notes: The hype of DC was lost on me in this one. Tawny brown smooth wrapper with minimal veins. Yellow cello. Expertly wrapped with solid construction and no soft spots. Easy light. Smooth draw. Thick, voluminous smoke with an uneven burn in the first third that auto-corrected. Flakey white-gray ash. Started with nuts, white pepper, and oak, and then transitioned into a dry paper taste throughout all thirds with notes of cedarwood, mild leather, and a mild malted sweetness. The last third brought a nuance of a floral note. It was noticeably bitter at the end. All in all, this 1 hour 45 minute smoke was one-dimensional and mild-bodied. It never blossomed, and lacked depth, character, and complexity. Given the hype and cost, it was very disappointing.
