Review Notes: It is nicely wrapped in cedar sleeve. The wrapper is silky and a little bit oily. Smooth cut, and good cap construction, but the cigar has some soft spots. Its easy to light. Smoke is mild-medium bodied, and it has a strong vegetable taste, with a light woody note, and a lightK dont know what it is, but some kind of taste that I dont know how to describe it. Its not bad, its just Ive never encountered this taste (neither in cigars, nor in food, so dont know what it is). Ive detected a very slight sweetness at the second third of the cigar. Burn is a bit uneven, draw is smooth, has a grayish-white ash with a light brown tan, firm, and not flaky. The cigar became soft and lumpy at the second half of the cigar. The cigar itself tastes sour. Hate to rest it on the tongue while smoking it, and its a salty. Taste becomes harsh @ the last third of the cigar. Either the smoke became strong, or it has a strong peppery and bitter taste that I cannot tolerate. Maybe it took me too long to smoke 2 thirds of the cigar. I regret that I have to put it down. I thought H. Upmann makes good cigars, but if this is what the company means by a good cigar, then its not my kind of cigar. For 3 bucks, I rather buy something else.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (5) No (7)
