Made in:
Dominican Republic
Wrapper:
Dominican Sun Grown
Binder:
Dominican
Filler:

Reviewer 1: JAX

Rating: C+

Construction Comments:
A firm natural wrapper, probably a Connecticut. Well-constructed with mild veins. Cut easily with a straight cut.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Mild aroma. Somewhat earthy.
Burn:
Single flame torch light. Started off a bit wild, maybe a toasting issue caused by me, but with a single minor touch up it burned evenly throughout. Ash held about 3 inches displaying a medium grayish color.
Drink:
Ice Water
Smoking Notes:
This seemed a mild cigar with little to no established flavors. It started off with a woodsy flavor then attempted to roll into a mildly sweet vanilla with almost a hint of nutmeg although transitions and distinct flavors were difficult to detect. Draw was good but it didn't produce a lot of smoke.
Overall Experience and Rating:
I’d give this one a C+. It was well constructed cigar that burned evenly throughout but I found it plain and lacking any climatic finish. Transitions were subtle at best throughout the smoke and it seemed it ended the same as it began with mild and earthy tones. There may have been some subtleties about this cigar which I wasn’t able to detect (I'm more of a full bodied cigar smoker), but for me this cigar just seemed a bit disorganized in the taste department.
 
Reviewer 2: Whitefish

Rating: C-

Construction Comments:
Kind of shabby. Not really a great looking cigar.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
The tip had a sweet taste to it, almost like a Swisher Sweet or Bacarat. That scared me a little as I hate Bacarats & didn’t want to smoke some flavored cigar. Luckily that wasn’t the case, as that sweet tip went away pretty fast once it was lit.
Burn:
I had to re-light it once & touch it up several times. The ash was grayish-white & VERY flaky. I wouldn’t want to smoke this cigar with nice clothes on or in a nice room. When I finished smoking this I looked like a dirty kid with a dandruff problem, as I was covered in ashes.
Drink:
None
Smoking Notes:
Once I cut into this stick & tried out the draw, I was slightly concerned. The draw was pretty loose & hinted that this was a cheap cigar that was skimming on the tobacco in the filler. The flavor was pretty much the same the whole way through & tasted like burning leaves. It wasn’t the worst smoke I had ever had, but definitely wasn’t the best. It was kind of hard to get a good volume of smoke since the draw was so loose. But then again, I didn’t get too uptight about it because the flavor wasn’t good enough to make me miss the smoke that much.
Overall Experience and Rating:
I didn’t really enjoy my time with this stick too much. It wasn’t harsh or anything, but was kind of bland & poorly constructed. If this cigar costs more than $3 they are WAY overpriced. I wouldn’t smoke another one & glad I didn’t pay for this one. C-
 
Reviewer 3: Madmike

Rating: C-

Construction Comments:
Not real Firm , Blotchy looking natural wrapper.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Pleasant sweetish smell. Xikar Cut.
Burn:
The burn was mostly even. No corrections required. Light Grey Ash
Drink:
Miller Lite
Smoking Notes:
I would say this is a medium bodied cigar that really did not show me much in the taste dept. There was a little pepper in the beginning, but then it faded. I was left with a dry tasteless smoke that gave me cottonmouth. Perhaps some humi time would have improved this experience.
Overall Experience and Rating:
The construction was on the weak side with some soft spots and the blotchy natural wrapper was not attractive. But who cares what it looks like if it smokes well. It did not do that either. Very little taste. I did not enjoy this smoke. I give it a C-.
 
Reviewer 4: Cal_Cobra

Rating: B

Construction Comments:
Weighing in at 5 x 50, with a light brown, smooth wrapper. Tightly packed, with no soft spots, and decent construction with a few veins.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
The pre-light aroma was slightly sweet, with light floral hints, a hint of salt, it really had a very pleasant unlit aroma.
Burn:
Cut with my Palio, and toasted the foot with my trusty Ronson (I'm on a Colibri BAN!!)  The burn was razor perfect the entire length of the cigar, with ample smoke, and the ash held for a good inch before dropping.
Drink:
None
Smoking Notes:
First draw was perfect, and it had a very interesting flavor. Sweet, slightly grassy, somewhat reminded me of a Cameroon wrapper, although I don't believe it is. After about the first inch, I did encounter a bit of ammonia taste, nothing major, and certainly nothing that a bit of humidor time wouldn't most likely resolve.

The finish was even more interesting, with a slightly menthol, slightly spicy taste. Towards the middle it developed a nice toasty flavor, and the menthol flavor was mostly gone. I wouldn't classify it as a complex cigar, more straight forward, but pleasant.

Overall Experience and Rating:
Very mild, would make a decent light breakfast/morning cigar IMHO. Would I buy it, well like any logical answer - it depends!! How much is it? Who made it? And what is it? Rating: B
   
Reviewer 5: markk96

Rating: B-

Construction Comments:
Nice looking cigar, dark in appearance. Nice tight cigar.
Pre-light Aroma and Flavor:
Smell was nice and spicy
Burn:
Easy draw used a torch lighter to light it. No touch up needed.
Drink:
None
Smoking Notes:
The Cigar did very well at first, the smoke was was minimal, and the ash was a nice grey burn, it was not an over powering cigar by any means, it is a very light cigar at first, as the cigar continued to burn it became stronger halfway down the stick. Towards the end, the cigar started to unwrap itself, at this point I had to stop smoking it.
Overall Experience and Rating:
Overall I would give this Cigar a Solid B-, it would be a good cigar to have with breakfast as I tend to like those to be mild, and this one would fit right in as it is really smooth and enjoyable. I would rank it at a B or A-, but I am not sure if the cigar wrapper falling apart was my fault or not. I will try this cigar again, and keep it on my list, it is enjoyable.
