Review Notes: These samples were natural, not maduro. They definitely have some age on them as the cello is stained yellow. This is an attractive thick robusto with a nice dark natural wrapper. Minimal veining with a slight oily sheen. Draw and smoke volume are very good. This cigar is stronger than it looks and provides the smoker with an immediate burst of wood and cedar upon lighting. Initial puffs continue to produce a strong toasty woody flavor. There is an underlying zestiness that I can't quite put my finger on. A slight pepper undertone is present as well. The finish is medium length with wood, cedar and straight tobacco notes. The aroma is very pleasant and has a spicy cedar note to it. The cigar burned straight and produced a medium to dark grey solid ash. The cigar stayed fairly one dimensional throughout the smoke with the peppery notes picking up intensity as you progress. Although its consistent and not overly complex, it is still very enjoyable. This is a solid medium bodied, medium strength cigar of exceptional value. Great construction and enough rich flavor to please anyone any time of day.
