Reviewer 1: Whitefish

Rating: A-

Construction Comments:
Nice, but not great. Spongy in some spots & firm in others. I was worried that this was a cheap cigar based on the inconsistency.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Typical tobacco flavors. Pleasant & made me excited to light up.
Burn:
Perfect!! I mean really nice. I was very impressed!!
Drink:
Ice water
Smoking Notes:
I really had no idea what to expect with this cigar. The construction issues made me think it might not be too good. I was dead wrong! It was well behaved with lots of smoke & EXCELLENT flavors. The draw was a bit tight, but it was not an issue. The flavors started as a creamy cocca & evolved into an earthy, woodsy flavor. A great combo that made me excited for each puff.
Overall Experience and Rating:
This was an excellent cigar that I WILL smoke again! The beginning flavor of creamy cocoa was just wonderful. I mean really, really good!! I highly enjoyed my time with this cigar & have no trouble giving it an A-. It would have been higher if not for the slight construction issues. I want to give Kevin a big kiss for sending these my way!!!
 
Reviewer 2: Slowburning

Rating: B

Construction Comments:
Firm, no soft spot. Brown wrapper with tiny veins.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Cocoa and chocolate, with a little peppery spicy.
Burn:
Good and even burn. At one point, it tunneled a little, but corrected itself, no touch up need.
Drink:
Coffee.
Smoking Notes:
This cigar produced a large cloud of smoke. Easy draw, with a sweet taste coated the palate after each puff. Slow and cool burn. Flavors include nutty and woodsy.
Overall Experience and Rating:
This is a medium strength cigar. It open with a burst of pepper spicy note. Good draw, cool burning with good amount of smoke. B
 
Reviewer 3: Madmike

Rating: B+

Construction Comments:
Very nice looking wrapper. Firm construction. minimal veins.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Light leather with some pepper. Draw is tight. Xikar cut.
Burn:
It had an even burn with firm white ash. Could not get quite the amount of smoke I wanted until about half way.
Drink:
Water
Smoking Notes:
This smoke was subtle but showed me several different sides. A light smoke to begin with delivering Leather and Spice. Exhibited some creaminess starting about mid smoke. Slightly sweet finish. It became a medium bodied smoke in the second half.
Overall Experience and Rating:
A smoke from Panama. Well how about that! I have to admit I was not expecting very much from this cigar but I was pleasantly surprised. Looked good, smelled good. The draw was too tight, making me have to be more patient than I wanted. But there was some good flavor in this cigar. I would do it again. In fact, I think i will. B+
 
Reviewer 4: Charlie

Rating: F

Construction Comments:
Cigar feels manufactured, despite the claim it is hand rolled. Wrapper and binding are thin, and they are not well differentiated.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
The light wrapper is followed by a light smoke. The cigar was soft to the touch, and kind of mooshed when I cut it, but I did not get a lot from it when I drew before smoking.
Burn:
Very even, and fast. It created a long, consistent ash, like a cigarette.
Drink:
I got a light cedar flavor while smoking this light cigar, but not much else. No sophistication or sublety to it at all.
Smoking Notes:
 
Overall Experience and Rating:
F. The only place this would pass as a premium cigar is in a convenience store.
