Review Notes: Frankly, I expected a little more from this stick given the hype. Attractive milky brown wrapper with minimal veins. Suprisingly light in the hand given its size. Easy light. Loose draw. Even burn. Volumes of white smoke. Flakey white-gray ash. Started with Cameroon sweetness, nuts, and mild vanilla. This transitioned to a mild wood flavor (particularly oak), nuts, and a faint sweet leather in the first third. In the 2nd third, I picked up a hint of black cherry and a slight tangy flavor that I couldn't put my finger on. The flavors intensified in the last third, with distinct leather notes and a citrusy flavor. All in all, this medium-bodied, mildly-complex 1.5 hour smoke was not overwhelming. I kept waiting for it to "open up" more, but alas it never did. Seemed restrained to me.
