Review Notes: An excellent large format cigar, with a ring gauge so big it is tough to light evenly. However, after the slightly harsh start (first 1/4") similar to the other Joyos, this cigar settled down to the standard medium/full Nicaraguan flavors. The stock tone of earthiness with overtones of spice, toasty bits and some coffee/cocoa makes for a really nice, and looooong-lasting smoke. The burn was very slightly irregular with one little section refusing to burn normally, but no bitterness to speak of. I burned it down pretty far, and it was lightly but pleasantly buzzworthy. Not the best cigar I have had, but a very good one and a good value.
