Tonight I smoked one of my favorite cigars, so I head into this with a bit of prejudice. The light caramel colored wrapper looks amazing, with leaf lines being visible. It smells light and sweet. The band is really flashy, almost to much for this cigar, needs a more classic band in my opinion. Cold draw has a nice light tobacco with a hint of sweetness.

First puffs– A nice punch of spice and earth hit my palette. There is a slight sweetness as well. The draw is just superb and smoke production is amazing.
First third– The spices and earth flavors are blending beautifully. They kind of trade off and then merge again. The ash is great on this cigar, nice light gray. Draw remains perfect along with the smoke.
Second third– There is a flavor shift to a wood and earth with the spice being barely there. There is still a faint sweet after taste.

Final third– Finishing up and I get a consistently great flavor. The wood is a bit more prevalent as it gets hotter towards the end.

Overall this is a classically excellent cigar. This is my go to when I want a solid smoke. I highly suggest this to everyone and always keep a few in the humidor. If you haven’t tried one yet, it is a must smoke.
