Review Notes: This is a wonderful cigar! Short corona length perfect for a long dog walk or when you don't have much time. Attractive, mildly oily and slightly toothy rich dark chocolate wrapper with medium veins. Solid construction with no soft spots. Nice prelight aroma. Easy light. Razor-sharp burn without the need for corrections or relights. Smooth draw. White ash. Lots of creamy white smoke. Starts with "in-your-face" spice and black pepper, but then transitions to a much smoother and complex medley of flavors after 1/2-3/4 inches. By the middle third, cocoa, dark chocolate, and earthy notes developed on top of the mild spice which served as the backbone of the cigar. The black pepper had subsided by this point. These were joined by woody notes in the last third, particularly a mild burnt cedar note, which was not overly obtrusive and complimented the flavor profile quite nicely. In the end, this 40 minute smoke (which I smoked slowly) was rich, complex, and thoroughly enjoyable. Would pair well with any scotch, bourbon, coffee, or even a stronger wine, like a Cabernet. Bought a box.
