Reviewer 1: Whitefish

Rating: C

Construction Comments:
Pretty good. A very nice looking cigar that felt nice in my hand & made it obvious that it was not a cheapo.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Slightly sweet tobacco taste.
Burn:
GREAT!!! I mean Razor sharp from start to finish.
Drink:
Ice water.
Smoking Notes:
This cigar started off with a very enjoyable creamy, caramel, toasty, cocoa, nutty flavor with a slight hint of spice. I was diggin' it quite a bit. About an inch in I noticed that the spice disappeared & the finish became very, very short. It was almost like those tasty flavors were playing hide & seek with my taste buds. It really kind of sucked!! The flavors were there, they tasted GREAT, but they barely stuck around long enough to be enjoyed. I have only had one other cigar ever have such a short finish. I thought the finish would come back towards the end, but no dice. I was thoroughly bummed out. I felt like a fat girl with broken legs at a buffet. Everything I wanted was right there, I just couldn’t get to it.
Overall Experience and Rating:
This was not a bad cigar. It was kind of irritating, with the short finish, but everything else was perfect (burn, construction, etc…). I think it deserves another chance. Maybe a little humi time would do it some good. As far as this particular cigar goes, though, it only ranks about a C for me. Had that finish been any longer, it would have gotten a MUCH higher score.
 
Reviewer 2: Slowburning

Rating: A

Construction Comments:
Firm, feels right in hand. Brown, chocolatey wrapper with smooth and oily sheen.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Spicy, leather, toasty, caramel, and cinnamon. With the aroma and flavor, I really didn’t want to torch it.
Burn:
Razor sharp. Cool and slow burning throughout.
Drink:
Green Tea
Smoking Notes:
Lots of flavors, from brown sugar to cinnamon, and the flavors were consistent throughout the entire time. Ash was grey-white.
Overall Experience and Rating:
This was a medium to full bodied cigar. This will easily be one of my top 10 favorites, if not one of top 5. It smells good, burns good, with a lot of flavors. From the moment I sniff it, I know I will like this cigar. A
 
Reviewer 3: Madmike

Rating: C-

Construction Comments:
Construction and appearance seems fine.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Sweet smell with an earthy unlit taster. Good pre-light draw. Xikar cut.
Burn:
Lit easily, had an even burn with a nice draw. Firm light gray ash.
Drink:
Coors Light
Smoking Notes:
This cigar lit well, burned evenly and had a very detectable sweetness about it. It was mostly a leather/sweet singularity throughout the smoke. I detected very little spice. The wrapper gave up and split about half way through the smoke. Toward the end it became bitter and harsh.
Overall Experience and Rating:
I enjoyed the first half of this cigar with it's natural sweetness. It looked good and burned ok. As I said, it split rather drastically in the second half and this may have contributed to the rest of the undesirable attributes this cigar possessed at the finish. My grade is a C-.
 
Reviewer 4: 19redwings

Rating: A

Construction Comments:
Firm, no soft spots, tiny veins made for a nice initial impression.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Musky/Loam
Burn:
Perfect! Nuff said!.
Drink:
Syrah
Smoking Notes:
Fantastic flavor!! Sweetness about ¾" in. Great flavor that always had you tasting something a little different than the previous puff.
Overall Experience and Rating:
Yum-a-Dum-Dum!!! A
   
Reviewer 5: Charlie

Rating: B

Construction Comments:
A well made double robusto. Very thick binder, with creases. There were a lot of twigs in the filler.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Strong woody tobacco flavor.
Burn:
Very even and slow, though the cigar heated up too fast for my taste.
Drink:
None
Smoking Notes:
Another strong starter, which I enjoyed more before smoking it. While it released some subtle earth tones during the smoke, it also picked up a bit of heat.
Overall Experience and Rating:
The aftertaste is rather strong and tobacco-y. I did not enjoy that part. I'd give it a B.
