Cory - Medium brown in color and boy this is a LONG donger. Dense and Very well made cigar.
Chris - Closed foot. Milk chocolate wrapper. Mild veins. Slight gritty, fuzziness to it. Quite firm. Impeccable cap
Cory - Easy going draw with plenty of smoke with each puff. Perfect burn line.
Chris - 2-3 puffer, great smoke production.
Cory - If its part of the Monster series, I am in. I was as excited to smoke the Karloff as much as the others, given its makeup. As a tip of the cap to Borris Karloff the actor that played the original Frankenstein's monster, the Karloff is a tall, lean, bolt necked donger. I was surprised how well the cigar smoked given its size. The flavors imparted are great own their own, great in a combination with others, and great through transitions. This cigar wasn't overly dynamic, but that is what I loved about this cigar. It gave you greatness all the way through, which in an almost 7 inch cigar is just phenomenal. At $13.00 for price of admission, I think it's worth it because its part of the monster series for Christ sake, and it's just that good. If they are still on the shelves, I recommend you grab one before they are gone.
Chris - It had me thinking it was the Frankenstein's monster at first. Rugged and ruthless at first with strong bitterness and spice. But ya know... once you get to know the monster, you'll find out it's just a misunderstood creature, because this cigar can also be sweet in creamy and earthy notes. Hopefully I didn't lose you there LOL. I really loved this cigar and with it's gradual change ups in flavor with an amazing burn experience, it makes $13 more than accommodating for how long you will enjoy smoking the Karloff.
