Construction & Appearance:
It looked excellent upon removing the cellophane. Once I did, I liked it all the more.
Beautiful, dark wrapper! Very rigid, rough skin texture beautiful dark oily some very rough spots and yet some very smooth spots .. I would say there’s even dents in this cigar!

Pre-lit:
Looked amazing… But when i went to use the scissors the cap fell off completely!
I tried to repair it and it seems to work. I had issues throughout the smoke and yet I managed.

First… With the cap back on tastes of cedar spice pepper
I was afraid the burn was going to even be off but it seems to have corrected

Right off the bat… Very very smoky cigar.

Loving the smoke finishing up the first third… Deep woodsy smell note spice on the palate but spice in the aroma. Burn is just about flawless now.

Cap is still on and hanging solid.
Getting a lot of sweets from the cap… Very pleasant to the tongue.
Very smokey… Flavor has maintained with a little bit of cream & dark fruity sweetness picking up here.

Becoming fuller in body yet still smooth. Still burning flawlessly.

Conclusion:
I smoked this thing down to the nub, and enjoyed every bit of it. I assume I just had a cigar that had a bad cap. That kind of thing happens. So I look past it. A great cigar. Pick one up. You will enjoy it.
