Minimal veins and seams." -<strong>Mickey T. </strong> (irratebass)87.5"I get a faint wood note on the body and mostly manure on the foot with hints of molasses and wood. " -<strong>Mickey T. </strong> (irratebass)87.5MediumLight-Medium"Getting a lot of earthy flavors, wood, coffee and wood. Getting a bit of rye whiskey notes on the finish. On the retro i'm greeted with walnuts. " -<strong>Mickey T. </strong> (irratebass)87.5MediumLight-Medium"Really no transition in flavors, mostly just earthy/woodsy notes. Strength has stayed consistent at medium. " -<strong>Mickey T. </strong> (irratebass)87.5MediumLight-Medium"Getting some cherry flavors on the beginning of the third, that was a nice welcome surprise. Sadly, it didn't last too long and it went back to the earthy notes." -<strong>Mickey T. </strong> (irratebass)92.5"Nice open draw no complaints. Plenty of smoke output. " -<strong>Mickey T. </strong> (irratebass)85"Burn was fair, it did go out a couple of times, and then it burned wonky for a bit. " -<strong>Mickey T. </strong> (irratebass)92.5"Very nice construction on this one. Cigar stayed cool throughout with about a 1/4 of an inch. " -<strong>Mickey T. </strong> (irratebass)87.5"This was a good cigar, but not one I would reach for regularly. If I wasn't reviewing the cigar I may have enjoyed it more. Meaning if I just lit this up and smoked it in a lounge or on my back deck and didn't have to pay attention to it I may enjoy it more. It was kind of one dimensional with all the earthy tones. I did get some cherries, but the flavor didn't last long enough to hold my attention......so i'm kind of at a loss with this one. I liked it, but didn't wow me I guess.

" -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)90"Mostly notes of hay from the wrapper. There's a rich barnyard and pepper from the foot. " -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)90MediumMedium"It starts out for the first inch almost exclusively Spanish cedar. Notes of white pepper start to develop with leather, heavy cream, and a slight nuttiness towards the end of this third. The ash falls without warning and snows quiet a bit. " -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)90MediumMedium"It's still very similar from the first third. Spanish cedar is still the dominate flavor with notes of leather, heavy, and a slight nuttiness. The white pepper from the beginning has developed into more of a cracked black pepper. The smoke output is very good though with a nice creaminess to it. Just at the end a black coffee flavor develops. " -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)92.5Medium-StrongMedium-Full"Spanish cedar has been the star since the beginning and nothing has changed in that respect. There's an occasional sweetness that has developed at the end joining dry leather, black coffee, heavy cream, and black pepper. " -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)92.5"Just slightly loose. I had to smoke slow or it would over heat. " -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)97.5"Burned great. No touch ups or relights. " -<strong>Alan </strong> (Eulogy)92.5"Looked great, tight seams, burned wonderfully, but had a slightly loose draw.

5/5/2019 15:36:04Jeff ExpendableYouth)85695"The wrapper has a reddish brown hue to it. Generally, the cigar has tight wrap lines and small veins running throughout. There are a couple of large veins and a slightly raised wrap line toward the foot but this does not distract from the actual appearance of the cigar. The cap and neck are a little skewed but most of that will get cutoff anyway. overall, this is a pretty nice looking cigar. " -<strong>Jeff </strong> (ExpendableYouth)95"The foot gives off an aroma of dry cedar and a light white pepper. " -<strong>Jeff </strong> (ExpendableYouth)92.5MediumMedium"The first-third has a lot of cedar, pepper and dry walnuts. The pepper isn't overly aggressive but it coats the mouth and tongue. The smoke has a really nice mouth feel with just the right amount of resistance on the draw. There is a slight sweetness and woodiness on the retrohale that rounds out the profile quite nicely. " -<strong>Jeff </strong> (ExpendableYouth)92.5Medium-StrongMedium-Full"The pepper has increased considerably in the second-third. There is a rich cream and woodiness to the cigar that has filled out the profile nicely. There are also hints of leather and bitter espresso that rest on the pallet between puffs. The construction, burn, and draw have been very consistent throughout and really added to the overall experience. " -<strong>Jeff </strong> (ExpendableYouth)92.5Medium-StrongMedium"The final-third has quite a bit more black pepper and an almost charred cedar note. There is a light sweetness left on the pallet with rich leather and a burned espresso finish. The amount of nicotine has this cigar has really snuck up on me and I am starting to get a bit of a head high. I would suggest having this cigar after a meal or maybe with a coke. The draw, construction, and burn have been perfect throughout. " -<strong>Jeff </strong> (ExpendableYouth)95"The draw had just the right amount of resistance and a great smoke output. " -<strong>Jeff </strong> (ExpendableYouth)95"The burn was excellent throughout and never needed so much as a touchup. " -<strong>Jeff </strong> (ExpendableYouth)95"The cigar's construction was spot on throughout the entire smoke. " -<strong>Jeff </strong> (ExpendableYouth)95"In terms of transitions or flavor profile changes this cigar really didn't have any. That's not to say it wasn't an enjoyable smoke though. The core flavors of pepper, cedar, sweetness, leather, and espresso worked really well together. I couldn't say that this cigar wowed me but it was a really nice cigar with just enough going on to keep my interest. Depending on price I would say you should definitely give this cigar a try.
