I just smoked one of these tonight and I loved it. Prelight draw tasted sweet with a tobacco taste (at least that is how I tasted it). First half had hints of sweetness in the smoke and second half was not as sweet but had a hint of caramelish flavor with lots of white smoke. It started to burn a bit crooked towards the half way point but it corrected itself. I love this cigar and I'm glad I got a bundle.
