This is a very nice looking cigar with a very smooth wrapper. There are light sweet notes from the foot. The cold draw is perfect.
The initial flavors are medium bodied and smooth with light pepper notes. The retohale is smooth with light pepper notes. The ash is mottled grey and solid, and the burn is even.
In the first third the flavor profile picks up a rich earthy notes. The retohale remains smooth and lightly peppery. The ash fell in my lap, but the burn remains even.
During the second third the flavor profile is solid. The retohale remains steady. The ash is a bit flaky but the burn remains even.
Approaching the final inch the flavor profile remains solid. The retohale remains smooth. The ash remains flaky but the burn remains even.
Overall a very good cigar, and one of the best cigars for the money. 9.5/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
