Construction & Appearance:
From the looks of this cigar, when it arrived in the mail, I naturally assumed there was no way I would ever smoke it. But, with three months in the humidor, I decided it was worth a shot, and it was taking up some good space. It looked excellent upon removing the cellophane. Once I did, I liked it all the more. Beautiful, dark wrapper! Slightly rigid, rough skin texture beautiful dark oily cigar with no soft or hard spots.

After cutting the cap with my scissors, which took a bit longer than normal, I got a dry draw of nuts and hints of chocolate.


1st: Great draw for such a huge cigar! I picked up within just a few puffs, tons of chocolate, nuts, coffee, and cream.



2nd: Absolutely shocked at how smooth and pleasant this cigar is with the same flavors and aromas coming from this cigar of chocolate and coffee.



3rd: Picked up even more here with flavors and tastes of mocha, cream, and the continuing chocolate and coffee. This is truly a chocolate bar! It ashed seconds after this pic was taken. I was very surprised at the consistency and the ash! Excellent cigar.


Conclusion: This thing is huge! It was one of those cigars that was given to me as a funny thought, and yet, with some boldness at being willing to try it, I was very pleasantly surprised. I am glad they have other sizes, and yet at the same time, I’m excited that I have a few more of these in the humidor. This thing’s a beast. And yet, it’s super mild. You don’t have to eat a steak or two before smoking this one. Pick one up, I dare ya!

Long ashes,
