Review Notes: Fairly attractive semi-oily dark, rustic wrapper. Pre- burn aroma was earthy, woodsy and spice. Upon torching produced a copious amount of smoke with an easy, airy draw. Nice burn throughout with no re-lights, just a few slight touch ups to keep her even. Unimpressive ash; very flakey with no holding power; black/gray mottled color. Overall flavor was quite good for a $1.50 stick. Demonstrated a medium-full body with assertive notes of espresso, dark chocolate, earth and charred wood. Became just a tad harsh and hot for the final 1/3rd. Certainly middle-of-the-road overall, but a good everyday go to if in the mood for a somewhat assertive easy smoking maduro at a good price.

"Solid Deal"

Review Notes: This H.U. shows off a slightly rustic, veiny, dark brown wrapper. Has a heavy, solid, but moist feel. Overall construction is an A+. Draw's a tad tight, but no problems getting plenty of smoke. Burn is as perfect as can be; razor sharp and even throughout. Not one touch-up or re-light necessary. Burned strong for the entire smoke with a long, finely layered light gray ash. Overall flavor profile is on the medium side, perhaps even mild for those use to strong maduros. However, pleasant notes of leather, nuts, cocoa powder and a touch of cut wood and spice are enjoyed. Although I typically enjoy a slightly fuller-bodied stick this is a flavorful and well constructed cigar.
