Review Notes: I got this cigar after reading the reviews and gave it a try. The first 3/4" were a bit harsh and bitter. Maybe I held the flame a bit too close. But a definite burnt coffee flavor. The burn was even without much effort. It mellowed afterwards, and had a smooth coffee and tobacco flavor. After an inch of that, the wrapper sort of unravelled and the binder blistered out a bit. This was about 1/2" down the stick. I was kind of annoyed and let itself burn down and smoked it only to keep it lit. It eventually burned past that area. The flavors were still there although maybe a hint of bitterness. Still decent though. It smoothened and I thought the flavors got a bit stronger too, to a medium bodied. Good woodsy taste. I smoked it down to the label and was very good. Overall, I think I may have gotten a bad one, but I'll definitely try another. Worth it (if it stayed intact) but maybe I'd try aging it a bit to get rid of the harsh first inch.
