Review Notes: It is rare that I don't smoke an entire cigar - this, however, was one of them. It has an attractive dark, oily, slightly toothy wrapper with minimal veins that makes it look inviting and rich. The construction was suspect, though, with several soft spots down the entire stick. Prelight aroma was mild. Easy light. Slightly firm draw. Mild amount of smoke. Flakey gray ash that "blossomed out" as it was smoked (usually indicative of poor construction with a loose roll, at least to me). Started with pepper and spice, which was joined by a leathery note and burnt cocoa in the first third. However, like a sputtering engine, if I didn't draw on it often, it would begin to go out. I like to space my draws apart so as to not "overburn" the tobacco and get a harsh taste. This was not possible here. The flavors became blander and blander as it was smoked, almost as if it was dying. In the end, I tossed it after about the halfway point, as the flavors were negligible and the construction made smoking it most unenjoyable. I bought 5, so perhaps my next try will be better (I never pass judgement on a sample size of 1), but this particular stick was one of the worst I have encountered.
