Review Notes: I figured these were more style (i.e. hype) than substance and passed them up time and again due to the high price, but when this smoke was rated # 25 in CA's Top 25 of 2005, I decided to give one a try. It was what I had expected.. a good solid smoke, decent flavor, but unremarkable. The construction was good, draw was firm, and the stick burned pretty evenly. However, an $11 smoke should taste a whole lot better than this. I'd describe the taste as a woody, earthy, hearty tobacco flavor, with mild spices and a hint of sweetness. Despite the description, none of these flavors really stood out, which means this smoke had little dimension. It was worth a try, but I've had better smokes for half the price.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (4) No (5)
