" -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)90"Musty fermented vegetal funk. Oughta be a musical genre. " -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)92.5MediumMedium-Full"Fires to life with some bright pepper and exotic spice notes. Somewhere around the Indian/Mid-Eastern zone of seasonings. Dark oak is evident on the finish. Nice blast of sharp burn in the back of the throat and roaring through the nasal passages. This gets in there and works it all around. " -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)92.5Medium-StrongMedium-Full"Peppery notes have faded and the dominant flavor here is of roasted wood. Still very nice. Strength and complexity are still on the full side of medium. Nothing overwhelming, but nicely potent. " -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)92.5Medium-StrongMedium-Full"Continuing roasty, woody flavors dominate. " -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)90"Could have been a bit more open. Not nearly an issue though, more a preference thing. " -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)90"Consistently off a bit. Never a problem, just wasn't a "razor sharp burn."" -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)92.5"Overall construction was really good. Could have drawn a bit easier, burn was a little off, but in a very minor way. Neither factor marred the experience. " -<strong>John I. </strong> (John I.)92.5"Nice medium-full experience. I preferred the early stage featuring some brightness and spice, but it was enjoyable through to the end. Not an incredible cigar, but it would make a very serviceable daily smoker.

1/5/2019 15:53:43Diana ArmyRN)80390"This is a nice looking robusto cigar. The wrapper is smooth and has a nice oily sheen to the medium brown wrapper. There is a golden hue to the brown and it is very attractive. The cap is placed well and the foot of the cigar reveals a fully packed filler." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)90"There wasn’t much of an aroma to the cigar but what was there was very pleasant. It has the smell of sweet straw without much else noticeable to me. I did a straight cut and the dry draw was pretty much the same as the external aroma." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)90MediumMedium-Full"I was very surprised by this cigar at first. There were notes of lemon grass that I didn’t expect. It wasn’t bitter though because coffee and chocolate combined with it to provide a well balanced mix. The coffee really came forward on the finish and left nice lingering rich flavors." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)90MediumMedium-Full"The flavors continue nicely and although they have’t varied much they are extremely rich and full with a lovely finish. The lemon grass adds a nice element to the profile and actually makes the coffee and chocolate stand out more for me. As I near the end of the second third there is the addition of leather that definitely adds to the complexity of the smoke." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)90Medium-StrongMedium-Full"The richness of the cigar has increased in the last third. The flavors are very well mixed ow and nothing in particular stands out on it’s own but that’s not a bad thing. The power also amps up a bit but it is a really nice conclusion to a very flavorful cigar. " -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)92.5"The draw was great on this cigar. The cigar temp stayed nice and comfortable and the draw was easy without being sloppy. There was a nice abundance of white smoke to accompany the draws." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)95"This car required no touch ups and had a great and straight burn line. The ash was a nice white mixed with grey. It held nicely and only dropped once when I was talking and moving my hands around a bit more than usual." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)92.5"The wrapper is well constructed and had no issues during the smoking experience. No cracks or lifts were noted and the wrapper remained intact throughout. " -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)92.5"This was a very flavorful and rich smoke for me. I enjoyed the coffee and chocolate notes but the lemon grass flavors added a very nice twist to this cigar. I would definitely smoke this cigar again and it would pair nicely with some of the coffees that I drink." -<strong>Diana </strong> (ArmyRN)75#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?

1/8/2019 9:07:26Isaac M. The Nothing)80395"This cigar has a beautiful, oily, Colorado wrapper. Nearly seamless. If i were to judge a book by the cover, I pick this one. " -<strong>Isaac M. </strong> (The Nothing)90"I was able to pick up scents of wood, baking spices and a touch of coffee at the foot of the cigar." -<strong>Isaac M. </strong> (The Nothing)95MediumMedium-Full"This cigar started off with rich wood and red pepper. As the spice toned down it turned into a creamy blend of spiced nuts, that clang to the palate. There was a grilled meat savoriness that really made the cigar hard to put down." -<strong>Isaac M. </strong> (The Nothing)95MediumMedium"The second third remained creamy but was accompanied by espresso and cedar. Dried fruit sweetness and flavors remained long after each puff. The ash held from the very beginning through about the halfway point of this third. When the ash fell the cigar needed some attention from my torch." -<strong>Isaac M. </strong> (The Nothing)92.5StrongMedium"Again the creamy texture preceded, bringing along barnyard flavors of earth and grass. It was at this point, even after dinner, the nicotine really started kicking in for me and that's not common. In this final third, the flavors really seemed to begin to fade out, and the cigar became a little less interesting. " -<strong>Isaac M. </strong> (The Nothing)97.5"With a v-cut, the draw was spot on and just about the way I like it" -<strong>Isaac M. </strong> (The Nothing)95"Given the density of the cigar, it burned just about the way I expected--long and slow. It did need a single relight about half way through, and touch up are to be expected if you take this cigar far into the final third. " -<strong>Isaac M. </strong> (The Nothing)97.5"This cigar looked beautiful, it felt great, and performed outstanding. " -<strong>Isaac M. </strong> (The Nothing)95"This car cigar is just plain delicious. It offers plenty of flavor transitions, creamy body, and the draw is great. While I feel let down by the way things just seemed to peter out in the last third, it wouldn't hesitate to smoke another. The cigar smokes for such a long time, much longer than other cigars this size, it's quite ok to give up the last third and stick with the part of the cigar that gives one of the best smoking experiences I've had in awhile." -<strong>Isaac M. </strong> (The Nothing)125#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?
