Review Notes: Perfectly creased box pressed lines. Solid as a rock construction, only flaw (sarcasm) being that the ash flaked off every half inch or so. After a few initial puffs, there is just as much smoke coming out of the head as the foot. Pretty much razor sharp burn. Clipped about a sixteenth of an inch off the head. Starts off with a very peppery rich tobacco taste that hits the pallate all over. After the first ash a coffee and sweet nutty taste develops. Every puff has a long persistent finish. The rest of the cigar I paired it with an Oregon Pinot Noir which smoothed out the pepper. This cigar forces you to draw on it gently, otherwise smoke will be coming out of your ears. Rest of the way just laid back and enjoyed a sip of cigar and then a sip of wine and vice versa. Finished off down to a quarter inch with a smooth woodsy/spice combo. Maybe one puff from the whole cigar had even the slightest tinge of bitterness.
