Review Notes: Let's begin, shall we? The pre-light draw was very nice, and construction is certainly top-notch. It was an easy light with an even burn to start. Right from the gates- I'm talking the first few puffs I take of this thing, the peppery taste makes it presence known. However, this is also accompanied with a somewhat creamy/leathery feel to it as well. During the first third of this stick, the draw and burn are both fantastic with no flaws whatsoever. The pepper became very predominant early and often, but towards the end of the first third, gave way to heavy flavors of cocoa and coffee. Very satisfying body and flavor so far. Half-way through this smoke, the pepper has subsided, and though this is clearly a full-bodied smoke, it's now very smooth with hints of earth and leather, and the earthy flavor continuing on predominantly through this segment of the smoke. Going in to the final third and home-stretch of this cigar, the draw continues to be absolutely fantastic as it has been throughout and the burn has been quite consistent. This stick, though full, has become extremely smooth and even more satisfying with a leathery/creamy feel and hints of wood and earth towards the end. I hated to have to put this stick down, so I nubbed it all the way down! I must say that after being told how well this stick would appeal to my flavor-profile and having the anticipation being built up for so long, it did not disappoint at all, even surpassing all expectations as lofty as they may have been. I would strongly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a full-bodied experience complete with peppery-creamy-goodness. Though not for the faint-of-heart, it's very satisfying, and one of the best sticks I've tried over the past year.
