Review Notes: I picked this up at the local smoke shop. Smoked it same day, didn't age. Appearance was ok, nothing special. Love the shape, but the wrapper had some prominent veins. Wrapper also had a couple of small tears, but never unraveled. Construction was solid, had a tiny amount of give when pressed. Lighting was very easy, thanks to the pointed tip at the foot of the cigar. Initial flavor was very woody. Aroma was good. About an inch later, it started to mellow a bit and the initial kick dissipated. I started to pick up some vanilla like notes. About half way in, the smoke tasted peppery. The rest of the way, the cigar did not improve. Kind of lost complexity. The smoke was always cool, never hot. The burn was uneven at times, but required only one touch up. Overall a good cigar, but the price paid is the killer. $8.50 for this stick is just a buck fifty too much.
