Review Notes: This stick had about 9 months of age on it. It didn't get any better flavor wise compared to the first two I put to fire. The appearance and construction of these are top notch. The flavor here is of a deep earth with some spice. That's it. I keep waiting for some creaminess to creep in and mellow the earth and spice but it doesn't fully get there. You end up getting, as others have noted, "teased" with this cigar. Except for the last few I have left from my 5 pack I am done with these. I paid $3/stick at auction on c-bid. Don't pay full MSRP on these if you want to try them. I think these sticks are destined for fillers in promotional sample packs. Attractive, smokeable, but not much in the flavor department.

"Aging didn't do much."

Review Notes: 75 more days in the "hole" helped burn. Draw needed a poke to open up. Flavor was, at times, a bit harsh on this stick. Specifically there was a peppery-"ness" to this that sometimes didn't hit my palate right and kept me reaching for water to soothe the back of my throat. Other times this stick had a nice full bodied earthiness to it that I found enjoyable. I have been a bit "sinusey" lately. This may be the culprit. Not totally impressed nor disgusted with these yet. Tread catiously. For $3 still a fine value. No way I pay full pop at $6.

Review Notes: Except for an uneven burn this was a good medium bodied cigar. Reviewer "BriSan" writes about being "teased" with this stick. I was too. I was also surprised that this smoke only lasted an hour. Usually this size lasts for about an hour and a half for me. I may have been guilty of smoking this too fast. Pleasant enough aftertaste and finish but i think this has the potential to be even better with aging. Paid $3.00 on c-bid. CI offering them for about $4.50 a stick. Getting these now at this price and aging them may prove to be a brilliant move.
