Review Notes: This was my second time smoking this cigar. The first was in Austin and I remembered it being very good. Which I thought was odd since I usually don't care for mild smokes. However I had also enjoyed a few, uhhhhhhh, "adult beverages" before hand so I wasn't sure if that had clouded my judgment or not. This is a nice looking cigar with a light brown wrapper, pointed cap and hard as a rock feel to it. Opened up with some bitterness that stayed for the first 1/2 inch. After that the real flavors began to settle in. First third was nutty with light touches of leather and cedar. Spiciness began to come in on the second third. Unfortunately, the last third began to get harsh and tarry. Mild-light medium in body. The cigar began to smoke very hot in the last couple of inches which is surprising considering the tight roll. Burn was perfect and needed no corrections. This thing made an impressive ash as well. I got about two inches before I felt it needed to be ashed and even then it took a couple of solid taps to make it drop. Draw was just fine as well. Overall, this smoke wasn't as good as I had remembered it being. It's by no means a bad cigar just not a $9 one. If you're a mild fan though don't take my word and try one for yourself.
