Review Notes: Appearance is good. Lights and draws nicely, somewhat tight but plenty of smoke if you work it a bit. The first 1/3 is rather blah and disappointing. You begin to think the stick is a total waste of time. But it sneaks up on you and picks up considerably in taste and strength as you approach the 2nd half. Out of nowhere, notes of vanilla and cedar appear to keep things interesting. But a noticable increase in harshness accompanies the increase in taste. Some time in the humi might be beneficial. Solid construction, no burn problems nor unravelling. Ash is flakey and does not hold together. All in all, not a great cigar but not bad for the price, if you don't pay more than $5 or so. Good with morning coffee for extra "oomph" to start your day.
