Review Notes: Attractive reddish brown Cameroon wrapper. Impeccable self correcting razor sharp burn. Perfect draw producing easy gobs of smoke. Flakey, loose white ash. Billed as medium bodied. I found it mostly medium to a sometimes fringe of full. Flavor was of earth, spice, and expresso. Sometimes the spice in the first third overpowered my palate in a way I didn't like. However the earthiness and expresso flavors became "milkier" or smoother in the last third and "mellowed" my palate from the spice. This stick had a different flavor profile that at first I wasn't sure about but overall I liked. Nice aftertaste too. Lasted nearly an hour and 45 minutes. Knowing how frugal (cheap) I am, I doubt I paid more than $4.50/ stick for these at auction. A fine value at $4.50. CI has introductory pricing for these at $6-ish. I doubt you'll see these that cheap again. This is a well made, different tasting cigar that's worth trying in a 5-pak.
