Review Notes: Great cigar for the money! Deep, rich, oily, dark chocolate wrapper with mild tooth and minimal veins. Solid construction without soft spots - feels heavy in the hand. Rich prelight aroma. East light. Smooth draw. Flakey white-gray ash. Started immediately with pepper, spice, and cocoa. This melded into a dominant earth background in the first third that was joined by dark chocolate, burnt espresso, and an enjoyable maduro-type sweetness. The smoke became smoother in the middle third, with nuances of charcoal again on a backdrop of earth. The smoke was noticeably rich and chewy. The final third did not bring any new flavors, so in that sense, it was fairly one-dimensional. All in all, this full bodied 1 hour 30 minute smoke was rich, chewy, and earthy. It was not overpowering (not a lot of Vitamin N). Excellent value. Bought a bundle.
