Review Notes: Easy to light and has a light, airy draw. Once lit, it provides a good amount of silky smoke, but it will soon die down and go out unless you stay on it. Burns unevenly and does not correct itself. This is quite a spicy cigar: from the get-go there are very strong notes of black pepper. About an inch in, the intensity of the spice died down, and the cigar became quite mellow. Unfortunately, no more flavors became apparent at this point to replace the lost spiciness. Finish is long-lasting and leathery with some faint cashew notes and a strong woody character. What’s notable is that you will feel the tingling on your lips from the spiciness for quite a while after you puff. Kind of a mediocre cigar. Not much to talk about…it’s just your average habano wrapper cigar with a poor construction that leads to the aforementioned burn issues. It’s also rather bland, and there are more flavorful habanos out there. Singles seem to sell for $12.00 per stick ($5.00 if you get the discounted box off CI). For this price, you deserve much better. Fortunately I got mine as part of a sampler for $2.30 (a much more fitting price). If you can’t get this on a similar discount, don’t waste your money.
