Review Notes: Paired with a bourbon on the rocksczs\. I am a big fan of the Unholy Cocktail, so I expected to enjoy this 6" stick as well. Prelight was just fine, a very nice draw, nice aroma similar to the UC, maybe not at intense. Upon lighting and the first few puffs, I achieved a very 'used' flavor that had me worried... a taste of 'old cigar', but it subsided after the first minute or so into a very smooth woodsy flavor. Surely not as intense as the UC, but some of the same woodsy, leather taste that I like on a maduro-type cigar. As this cigar went, I tended to get a little bored of it as it seemed almost mundane compared to the UC. Nothing really wrong with that, if I would have never tried the UC, I would say this was a nice B+ cigar. Fairly firm, just it just smells and tastes like the dollar-store version of the UC. Let me say that THIS IS NOTHING FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH, this is a VERY good cigar, but the UC has set the bar very high in my tastebuds. Overall, still a nice long stick with good burn and lots of dark smoke, woodsy, leather, lots of spice on the middle half, and spice and pepper on the final. Very nice in it's own right, but I'll stick to the UC for the increased intensity.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (5) No (3)
