Review Notes: Very nice looking cigar. Dark connecticut shade wrapper, could almost pass for an Ecuadorian wrapper. Firm bunching throughout with triple cap. Wrapper has minimal veining with a slight oily sheen. It has an attractive black band with just a 601 in the center. OK but nothing special. Prelight aroma is barnyard like. Initial draw is very good and produced a sweet tobacco taste. Initial puffs produced a burst of rich woody tobacco flavor and spice. Extremely flavorful initial flavor that was outstanding but quickly fded to a straight peppery taste. Draw and smoke volume is excellent. Flavor turned to strictly just pepper with a peppery woody\balsa finish. The flavor drops off quickly to just pepper and becomes a med-full bodied, full strength straight pepper flavor. Its a shame because the initial flavor was amazing. Burn is straight with a solid dark grey ash. Aroma is non distinct. Became straight forward and one dimensional. The last third brought on some cedar notes. These were smoked OTT so time may change them.
