Review Notes: I did not like the cigar very much when I received it in the mail. The factory packed the cigars in a nice box, but the cigars were strapped by a tight ribbon, and many of the cigars were damaged by it. It seems like the factory did not have to pay for the glue to put the band on, because it is so hard to remove the band from the cigar, and it seems they put a big drip of glue to put the band on because there are some residues left on the wrapper when the band is removed. The cigars did not look aged enough when I bought it, I tried one and was not so impressed by it, so I left it in the humidor for 3 months and Im giving it another try. The cigar is pretty veiny, but has a slight silky touch to it. It has a few soft spots, but overall it is acceptable. The cigar has a slight sour smell to it. The cap construction is pretty good, but its kinda hard to clip the cigar. Pre-light draw is a tiny bit loose, and it was easy to light. The cigar tastes spicy, with a tiny woody note to it. Smoke is medium, and the draw is just a little bit loose. The burn rate is slow, and ash is grayish-white with a tan highlight to it. The ash is a little flaky but firm, and the burn is a little uneven. This cigar yields great smoke volume, but the wrapper starts to split and unravels a little as I smoke the cigar. It is a very good everyday cigar for the price Ive paid (29.95 a box!!).
