3/24/2019 13:28:56Diana ArmyRN)84892.5"The cigar is a nice dark brown Maduro with a very smoothly wrapped box press shape. It has a nicely constructed cap and a partially closed foot. Overall it is a handsome an classy looking cigar." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)90"There is a nice sweet cocoa mixed with barnyard hay that I find very pleasing to my senses. The dry draw is pleasant and the foot reveals a mix of light brown, blonde and dark brown fillers. No ammonia or other pungent odors are noted and I am excited to ge this cigar lit." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)90Medium-StrongMedium"I get a bit of the hay when I first draw on this cigar but it is quickly dissipated into dark cocoa and chocolate with a hint of nut. The retro provides a little bit of pepper and there is a bit of floral note to the finish. The cigar has a nice smooth and earthy base that slowly reveals some leather and more floral notes. The transition to more coffee is noted well into the end of the first third and there is a bit of white pepper on the finish." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)90Medium-StrongMedium-Full"The flavors in the cigar are definitely in my wheelhous of favorites. The second third brings out some wood tones while smooth coffee and floral, almost reminiscent of hyacinth accented with fruit, appear in this third. I like the smoothness and the complexity at this point." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)90Medium-StrongMedium-Full"The complexity continues for me and it is quite a nice balance. The floral and fruity notes, although minor, compliment the wood, leather, coffee and cocoa very nicely. I am enjoying the smoking experience with a plethora of flavor to my palette." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)87.5"The draw was just a little tight for my preference but it was still good. I did not have to work at it but I probably err on the side of a bit more open draw. Otherwise no issues." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)90"I had no issues with the cigar and burned nicely with a crisp line and no required touch-ups. I had a lot of nice smoke and it felt plentiful in my mouth with each draw." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)90"Construction was great as there were no lifts, cracks or issues throughout the entire smoking experience. The cap remained very well intact and the feel of the box press in my hand was comfortable." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)90"This was a good looking and good tasting cigar for me. It met all three areas of “like” and the only down side was the little bit of tightness in the draw. I would love to smoke this again and again." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)67#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?

Slight oils on the wrapper. " -<strong>Kevin J. </strong> (maninblack77)95"Initial aromas off of the foot are dark molasses and earth. So far so good. Can't wait to light this baby up!" -<strong>Kevin J. </strong> (maninblack77)95MediumMedium"Right from the initial light, I get those flavors of dark molasses and earth. Creamy molasses throughout the first third. Incredibly smooth and refined. Burn is straight with no touch ups needed. I can already tell this is going to be a great cigar. " -<strong>Kevin J. </strong> (maninblack77)95MediumMedium"Creamy molasses continue with the addition of dark chocolate. Slight black pepper on the retro. Burn continues to be spot on. Draw is smooth with no issues. Killer cigar thus far. " -<strong>Kevin J. </strong> (maninblack77)95MediumMedium"Final third is same as the first two thirds. And this is by no means a bad thing. Lots of molasses, dark chocolate and some slight espresso notes. Wrapper starts to crack near the final third but it does not take away from the cigar in any way. Had to nub this cigar. I didn't want to put it down. " -<strong>Kevin J. </strong> (maninblack77)100"Smooth draw with no issues. " -<strong>Kevin J. </strong> (maninblack77)95"Only required a couple touch ups, even with the cracked wrapper on the final third. " -<strong>Kevin J. </strong> (maninblack77)95"One of the better constructed cigars I've reviewed so far. The cracked wrapper was probably due to the humidity in the air. " -<strong>Kevin J. </strong> (maninblack77)97.5"This cigar was right up my alley flavor wise. Would definitely buy a box of these. Wasn't the most complex smoke but the flavors were amazing. I'd give it a solid 95. Excellent smoke!" -<strong>Kevin J. </strong> (maninblack77)70#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?
