I was pretty excited about smoking this cigar simply because I had heard great things. Starting off it was quickly apparent that this cigar was produced with high quality product and given the attention it deserves during the production process.
Unfortunately I had some issues with an overly tight draw from the get go, which annoyed me like a pesky kid kicking the back of my plane seat. That aside the burn was pretty consistent and presented minimal challenges.
The Aroma of this cigar was curious in the most pleasant way possible, to the point where I wanted to taste exactly what I was smelling, but unfortunately there was minimal sparks of great and for the majority of the cigar and the flavors just seemed to be subdued. Every so often a woody flavor with slight bitterness would come about but would tame itself just as quickly.
At an average cost of $9.50 each, the price seems to be a tad bit inflated for what I experienced. I would recommend perhaps aging this a bit after you get them. I think it would change the dynamic of flavors quite dramatically for the better.
Hot Ticket Score
You can get your hands on this cigar for just around $8.00 which makes it a pretty damn good deal. There isn’t anything challenging about this cigar, so in terms of recommendation, but really feel there are some out there that may find this cigar to not be in their wheelhouse. If you do grab one, do yourself a favor… Drink it in the morning with a good cup of coffee. You won't regret it.
