Review Notes: The flavor profile on this, although complex, was not to my liking. Started off with a strong non-pepper spice, wood and strong leather taste. At midstick the spice receded and the stick turned earthy with a fruity tartness (like citrus.) Doesn't sound bad, does it? The problem for me was in the finish--spice & stale tobacco. I expected something creamy & sweet, but it never came for me. The aroma of the smoke was also very pungent--it chased my wife off the porch (and all the bugs, too!) Nice looking and well-built stick, though. The draw started off very tight, but loosened; straight burn, produced a good volume of smoke. Full bodied and medium strength that built slowly toward the end. Got these in a trade, but I wouldn't buy any more, especially at retail prices.
