Review Notes: Beautiful dark wrapper with quite a few veins. Tough to light and has a very firm draw. Initially very spicy with a strong toastiness. Spiciness soon drops off and is replaced by a reasonably mellow earthiness, though the toastiness remains. Initially the draw is just too firm…there isn’t enough oxygen going through this puppy, so if you don’t stay on it the cigar will go out. Also, the excessively tight draw means the smoke is limited so you cannot get much flavor out of it. About an inch into the cigar the draw loosens up and the burn finally takes hold. At that point it maintains an even burn on its own and without much difficulty, producing a good amount of full-bodied smoke. Then the more subtle flavors become more apparent: the flavor of roasted cashews stands out, and some dried fruit accompanies the earthiness. Once it FINALLY gets going, this cigar has a great flavor and exhibits good construction, but it takes a while for these qualities to come out. The initial burn issues are the thing preventing this cigar from being a great cigar.
