Review Notes: What a weird cigar. Appearance was fair; small veins, a little rough looking, but not bad. Pre-light aroma was weak, with a tobacco bouquet. The draw on this was very tight, yet I still managed to get a decent amount of smoke out of it. Otherwise, it would have been a colossal failure of a cigar. Aside from the draw, the burn, while not razor sharp, was even, and I had no issues with it. The flavor.. Where do I begin? As was mentioned in a previous review, there were hints of paper, and I also got hints of leaves, as in the leaves that fall off of your tree that you burn. The smoke had that same acrid quality you find in a leaf-burning. Here's where it got weird. I would take a puff and get an ashy tobacco flavor that was not enjoyable and was also non-descript and bland. Then after about five or so puffs like that, I would get this draw that was of coffee; rich and tasty. Next puff: that same ashy taste. Five puffs later (I swear I'm not making this up) I got a taste of a sweet cream. Back to ashy. A few puffs later, an almost marshmallow taste. Next: ashy. Repeat this ad nauseum. This was a completely bizarre cigar,and not one I will be buying again. Better than a sharp stick in the eye, I guess.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (14) No (11)
