Review Notes: It is a very silky cigar, with few visible veins on the wrapper. The construction of the cigar is pretty solid, and it feels just right when it is rolled between the fingers. The cut was easy, and the pre-light draw is almost perfect (not too firm, and not too lose). The smell of the cigar has a little bit of sourness to it. The cap construction is good, and it was easy to light. I have a problem with lighting the cigar, which is when the flame is held about an inch away from the foot, the wrapper caught the fire, and turned to charcoal black immediately. The draw is extremely smooth, and it has a spicy, along with a woody taste to it. The cigar finishes quite dry, perhaps too dry for my taste. The aroma of the smoke is very pleasant, but the nicotine is a bit too high. The burning of the cigar catches my eyes -- The cigars I smoke usually produce a yellowish-orange type of burn when I draw the cigars, but this one produces a dark-red type of burn. The burn is a little bit uneven, and the burning rate is slow. The color of the ash is darker than I thought it would be, it turns out to be a dark gray/grayish-black on the outside, but it is white-gray on the inside. Ash is really firm, but flaky on the outer rim. The taste is consistent throughout the cigar, until about half of it, and it doesn°¶t burn hot. This medium-bodied cigar tastes very nice, and the smoke volume is HUGE and creamy. It is a very nice experience smoking a vintage cigar (considering this is my first one). When the cigar reaches a half of it, it has a slight peppery taste adding to the complex flavor that I°¶ve mentioned. A sudden change of taste is a unique experience. About three quarters of the cigar, the spicy taste is gone, and replaced completely with the peppery taste.
