Firm, no sift spots. Wrapper is crazy-cool, a camo pattern made of candela, maduro, and Connecticut. Smells of sweet hay and is a bit sour. Tight draw, not too tight. Surprisingly well constructed. Prelight draw gives a grassy sweetness.
Initially just a slightly sweet, grassy hay flavor. Slight sourness on the retrohale. Not a lot of flavor. The sweet, very light flavors of tobacco and grass are there, but barely. This is possibly the mildest cigar I've ever had. The retrohale is similar to, though not as enjoyable as, the breath of fresh after a puff of a Connecticut. That's how mild the flavor is. The burn is incredibly straight for a cigar with pieces if different wrappers covering it. I assumed it would be all over the place. Ash holds for a solid inch.
Still quite mild, still little to write about. The smoke is just a bit buttery now, almost a bit like an avocado, in a good way. The retrohale has a tint of mildew to it, in a bad way.
Not much changed on this one.
An interesting cigar to look at, a great conversation piece, and a fun way to celebrate memorial day in tribute to our soldiers. But other than that, the cigar really seems to be more of a novelty than anything else.
