Doesn't look too tightly packed." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)87.5"There is a faint but nice smell of leather coming from the wrapper. Reminds me of a nice leather sofa in a cigar lounge." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)90MediumMedium-Full"This one has had a nice beginning. There are wonderful smoky flavors with some hints of cedar and oak. The aroma reminds me of campfire at the beach. Very pleasant and warming." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)90MediumMedium-Full"As I press on, the flavors have begun to become bitter but not to a point that it is not tasteful. At this point, the flavors of smoky wood, charred meat, and crispy bacon have taken over. There is now a nice peppery flavor left on the lips and palate. I am still finding this an enjoyable cigar. " -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)90MediumMedium-Full"I am think now that a nice single malt scotch would pair nicely with this cigar. The woody, leathery falvors are still balanced and enjoyable. The added peppery tingle is a nice bonus now. This is not a sweet cigar nor is it for the faint of heart." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)85"There came a point that the draw became tight but loosened up after a while." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)87.5"The burn was nice but I did have to relight mid smoke. That might have been due to the cigar sitting for a few minutes while I stepped away." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)92.5"Solid" -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)90"I want to first state that this cigar was enjoyable from beginning to end. The very forst smell of leather from the wrapper was wonderful. The smokey flavors and peppery tingle were wonderful. I enjoyed the boldness of this one and how the woody flavors lingered after inhale. At one point there were nice hints of leather but that didn't last long. I realy enjoyed the complexity and balance of all of the flavors from beginning to end. It was nice not having to fight through any bitterness near the end. I am wondering how this one would pair with a single malt scotch or dark beer." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)75#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?

" -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)90"Nose tickling amount of pepper with a earthy musty finish. " -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)92.5Mild-MediumMedium"Great smoke output, rich texture, and a strong flavor profile. There's a rich cedar note, slightly bitter chocolate, and rich pepper finish that isn't overpowering. My only complaint is that it has an odd cardboard finish occasionally that distracts from a great profile. " -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)92.5MediumMedium-Full"There's an interesting play on flavors with a strong floral note working against a rich unsweet tobacco profile. A bit of pepper, wood, and muted leather finish out the profile with an occasional cardboard flavor stepping in. " -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)92.5MediumMedium-Full"More cedar forward than the previous two thirds. There is only a hint of floral now with a nice rich leather and pepper finish. " -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)92.5"Just a tad loose but it smoked great with a creamy smoke output. " -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)95"Razor sharp burn with no relights or touch ups. " -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)95"No soft spots, blemish free wrapper, tight seams, and large well applied triple cap gave the appearance of a well made cigar. " -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)95"Other then the occasional cardboard taste that would pop in it was a great smoke. An interesting profile that had several profile changes kept me engaged till the end. I would smoke it again and hope that the paper flavor wasn't present.

Short, clean finish leaving nothing lingering on the pallet after the draw but a hint of cinnamon. Not a lot of smoke output, but draw is good with medium resistance.
No wow factor in the first third." -<strong>Randy B. </strong> (randobush)
85Mild-MediumLight-Medium"Very short finish, with little smoke to chew on, albeit, the draw is still good. Metallic zing on the tongue, mixed with cashews cream, with the hint of cinnamon & cayenne diminished, but present.

Really nice cigar. " -<strong>Steve </strong> (ThaGreatWazoo)90"The aroma prelight had some interesting notes. I was picking up a soft amount of floral notes off the wrapper. The cold draw left me with notes of butter and bread. Can't wait to get this one going. " -<strong>Steve </strong> (ThaGreatWazoo)90MildLight-Medium"The first third of this cigar starts very mild. There is a lot of sourdough and yeast coming through. The sourdough sticks to the mouth and has me needing water. A nice start that is thick with the flavor profile. " -<strong>Steve </strong> (ThaGreatWazoo)87.5Mild-MediumLight-Medium"The second third draw starts adding a mustiness on the tongue. Not quite bitter, but enough to be noticeable. The ash is strong and thick and hangs on for quite sometime. Towards the end of the second, I needed a couple of relights and this really triggers some pepper and salt notes that mix in. " -<strong>Steve </strong> (ThaGreatWazoo)87.5Mild-MediumLight-Medium"The final third settles and the smoothness of the cigar takes over. The bread notes come back and a strong wheat profile develops. Towards the end, the salt notes pickup again and round out a unique smoke. " -<strong>Steve </strong> (ThaGreatWazoo)87.5"The draw was good. I wish a little more smoke and flavor came out, but nothing due to the straight cut. " -<strong>Steve </strong> (ThaGreatWazoo)90"The burn was nice. The ash was thick and held really well. Some touchups were needed, but did not knock off the overall flavor profile. " -<strong>Steve </strong> (ThaGreatWazoo)90"The construction and build were solid on this cigar. The look wss very high end and the smoothness towards the end was due to a nice build. " -<strong>Steve </strong> (ThaGreatWazoo)90"This cigar had a lot of nice characteristics to it. From the thick sourdough notes coupled in with the salt finish, this cigar had a really unique profile. My only wish was a little more power on the finish. I found myself hoping for more. Overall, a nice mid afternoon smoke that won't smash your palate. " -<strong>Steve </strong> (ThaGreatWazoo)55#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?#NAME?
