Review Notes: This cigar has a nice medium dark natural wrapper. This robusto (4.7x50) comes in a cedar sleeve and sports the typical Kosack Gurhka emblem in front of an orange setting sun background. The wrapper is smooth with minimal veining and an oily sheen. The cap is applied a bit sloppily and split when I punched it. Prelight aroma is a feint tobacco and the initial draw is slightly sweet. Draw and smoke volume is very good. There is a sweetness on the draw followed by a light woody, balsa flavor. The initial finish is very short and light. The aroma is sweet not very spicy and pleasant. The cigar burned very straight and produced a solid white ash. Well made smoke, but flavors are a bit boring and very mild. The wrapper, a dark conn shade is very fragile and the cigar is a Dominican blend, which explains the balsa like aftertaste. At the mid way point, I picked up a touch of spice, barely. The wrapper also began falling apart. I didnít try to remove the band until I had to, because I felt that it was the only thing holding the wrapper together. Once I removed the band the wrapper followed. Good cigar for someone liking very mild smokes (Macanudo light), beware of the wrapper
