Review Notes: Sometimes aging just doesn't do a damn thing. This is what I am beginning to think with these cigars. I've had nirvanah flavor experiences within this series with the torpedo shape but this size disappoints me now. It looks, smells, and feels like it would be a middleweight contender but has flyweight taste and depth of body. They smoke well but are just too mild and boring for me now. I think you are going to start seeing these everywhere in sampler packs soon. Mexican filler and binder....what was I thinking? Worth a shot in the torpedo size at about 3-4/stick. Only buy this size if you can nab them for $2-3 a throw and you like mild cigars.

"Nice, but laughably overpriced."

Review Notes: Ecuadorian wrapper is very handsome in appearance. Cigar was solidly packed and felt right. Burn and draw were top notch. Flavor was mostly mild, smooth, sweet tobacco with some wood, and like Don Millio write's "some floral notes". He also mentions that it was one dimensional...I agree. I found the body of this stick to be very mild. This would be a wonderful cigar for someone just starting out in this wonderful hobby. I can't imagine full flavor folks enjoying this except for breakfast. It's too tame and doesn't have savory flavor changes. The current MSRP of $9.25 is rediculous. If you like mild cigars and want to try these you can nick these on c-bid for $3-4 a throw. I will base my value review on $3.50. Overall, this is a quality, tasty, mild cigar that is extremely overpriced right now.
