Review Notes: Being a huge fan of the OpusX and Hemingway series, I had high hopes for this one. The local tobacconist recommended it as an alternative to the Opus since they're so hard to come by. Wrapper is nice, shiny, golden brown, and fairly smooth; cap is superb. Light was easy, draw near perfect, and burn was consistent. Flavor reminded me of the Opus a bit... probably the closes I have smoked. However, it's still NOT an Opus. Like many JC Newman smokes, this one also has something of a generic chalky/smoky undertone which doesn't work for me. On the plus side, there's a nice hint of sweet and spice. I just wish there was a little heartier flavor for the price. It does produce copius amounts of smoke. You could do worse, though I didn't feel this was good enough to justify the price.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (10) No (7)
