Construction and Appearance:
This thing looks really good. The dark Maduro Mexican wrapper smells wonderful, and the texture is practically flawless. There were no soft spots or hard spots on this cigar. There were also no heavy veins. The appearance was very oily and box pressed, with a great feel to the cigar. The 2 bands on this cigar make it stand out all the more. They are absolutely beautiful.

Pre-Cut:
This thing had a perfect draw immediately with the the use of my scissors.

Flavor:

1st Portion:
Within the first few puffs, I picked up on spice with some sweet. It was hard to place the sweet at first, but I feel fine in saying it’s a delicious cream and caramel.

2nd Portion:
A little before the second third began, caramel exploded, and for a while it was caramel, cocoa, light cedar and a lingering spice. Leather notes appeared in this third, and eventually, the profile gave way to a woody milk chocolate. You can see in a couple of these that the burn got off a bit… but, just as I had hoped, it corrected itself.

Final 3rd:
A wood and pepper combination picked up in here and into the final third with some light creamy chocolate in the back ground. As the last parts of the cigar turned into ash, I was aware of just how good of a cigar I had. This thing is fantastic! I’ll be getting more of these. In fact, I’ve already been shopping just while writing this review!

This thing was so relaxing, I enjoyed reading the sports section and catching up on baseball while enjoying it.

Conclusion:
This cigar is practically a tobacco candy bar! It’s amazing. I loved it, and I’m so thankful I have three more just sitting in the humidor waiting to be burned. I loved the flavors as well as the quality of the cigar, the texture, the feel in the hand, and slightly box pressed body. You need to try this thing if you haven’t already… you won’t be disappointed.
