Reviewer 1: Whitefish

Rating: B

Construction Comments:
Nice
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
I cut it & took a puff & it tasted like Wood & Black Cherries. I could make a smart-ass remark here, but I won’t. Haha.
Burn:
Nice. One touch-up early & it was razor-sharp the rest of the way.
Drink:
Coors Light
Smoking Notes:
Odd. This cigar Jekyl & Hyde’d me. The first third was really bad. I probably would have thrown it out if I were not doing a review. But, I took one for the team & stuck with it. I was REALLY happy I did too, as this stick took on a whole new personality after the rotten start. The first third was very mild with no real flavor & enough spice at the end of the finish to make it seem harsh, since there were no strong flavors to balance it out. Once the spice disappeared though, it turned into a complex creamy, woody, & doughy smoke that was rather tasty! It was odd, it did not gain any flavor until the spice disappeared, but had the spice stayed, it would have made this cigar even better because now there were some good flavors to balance the spice.
Overall Experience and Rating:
I went from hating this cigar to really enjoying it. By the end it tasted like a big ‘ol wood-fired cajun hushpuppy!! So it started as a ‘D’ & finished as a ‘B+’. So overall, I will give it a solid ‘B’. I bet some age would really turn this into a solid ‘A’ cigar!!
 
Reviewer 2: CRider

Rating: B

Construction Comments:
Nice chocolate colored torpedo with a nice oily sheen. Some veins, but looks like it’s put together pretty well.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Good tobacco aroma with a solid hit of cedar. Nice easy draw with a cedar and slightly “flowery” flavor, very pleasing.
Burn:
Easy 2 match light. Nice even burn so far with a decent medium grey ash.
Drink:
Coffee
Smoking Notes:
Hints of chocolate and a little spice to it in the beginning. About ½ way through it gains in strength, a stronger but pleasing tobacco flavor with continued hints of chocolate and just a bit of peppery spice. With about 1/3 of the cigar left, it’s gained quickly in intensity, especially with the pepper.
Overall Experience and Rating:
I like medium to full strength cigars, and this one went from medium to almost full strength. While it wasn’t extremely complex to me, it did have good flavor and I enjoyed it until it was all but singing my fingertips. It burned evenly and produced a lot of nice creamy smoke, and lasted all but 2 hours. I would buy it again and rate it a solid B.
 
Reviewer 3: skeletor121

Rating: B-

Construction Comments:
Slightly veiny, very dry: had 4 spots where the wrapper is chipped (this is how I received it), slightly spongy and wrapper feels brittle (think it was dry when I got it, tried to revive it, but wasn’t working).
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Smells like raisins and cedar, depending where on the stick you smell. Quick/loose draw and a good cut. Tasted like raisins/Redman chewing tobacco.
Burn:
Pretty good burn, drifted at the beginning but corrected itself. Had to touch it up about 2” in, feel this was due to it being a little dry. Ash was grayish/white.
Drink:
Diet Coke w/Lime
Smoking Notes:
Loose draw with thin white smoke. Started off tasting like toasted bread. 1” in the toast faded, being replaced by a slight black pepper and cedar tastes. Slight smell of burning wood. Slight creamy taste mixed in around the half way point.
Overall Experience and Rating:
This was an ok cigar. I think I will have to try this one out again since this particular stick was a mess from the beginning. Most of the problems I have with this one is that it was all dried up when I got it. The wrapper started coming apart about 2 puffs after I lit this sucker. It totally blew up near the end of the stick, probably when the wrapper got heated. I think a it is good stick and will be an average daily smoke, but cannot fully guarantee that with this sample. Rate it at a B-.
 
Reviewer 4: 19redwings

Rating: B-

Construction Comments:
Nice torpedo, good cylinder and taper. Prominent veins. Couple imperfections (could have shaken in box).
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Solid. Good medium flavor. Straight cut.
Burn:
Very good draw and burn was consistent throughout. Reminded me of a Rocky Patel for comparison.
Drink:
Samuel Adams Boston Lager
Smoking Notes:
Leather and spice/pepper at first light. Sizzled when first lit? Spice subsided rather quickly. The last half added more leather flavors. Where is the sizzle coming from?
Overall Experience and Rating:
A little on the mild side for my tastes. Maybe the Sam was overpowering it a bit. Overall a B-
