Highly recommended

So this was an interesting experience for one specific reason. I was one of the unlucky ones that got a cigar the just would not stop extruding bitter tar at the head, and as a lot of you know, the bitterness of the tar can really ruin the experience. The counter to this was the tar really didn't begin building up until about the halfway point so I had a lot of the cigar the smoked as intended, and what was present in that time was some really amazing flavors. The cigar is bold but balanced. It's nuanced and sensible, offering up great flavors overall. I also recognize that is isn't fair for me to deduct points for the tar build up as it is an unpreventable part of the process, and again, I was just one of the unlucky ones. It needs to emphasized that this is a really phenomenal cigar as a whole, and its reputation in the industry is warranted.
