Review Notes: It may have been the prelight aroma that gave me high expectations for this cigar, but whatever the reason, I was disappointed by the flavor profile. Upfront, I was hit by a heavy flavor of salt. I was expecting more of a sweet and spicy balance with this cigar but, throughout, there was nothing more than a dry saltiness. I did have to correct the burn three times but the draw and volume of smoke were great. The cigar had months of time to rest in my humi, so perhaps I would have better enjoyed the unsettled flavor of a youthful #5 described here by a few reviewers. Despite the strange flavor, I smoked the cigar nearly to the nub. Weighing out all the features of the cigar, I'm sure the majority of smokers will have better luck with this label. I will try this cigar again to confirm if I just had an odd stick.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (5) No (4)
