Highly recommended

Months back (pre-Covid) I got a chance to meet up with Serino cigar VP, Carson Serino, son of Owner Anthony Philip Serino. He gifted me a few of these cigars which I had enjoyed before but never put my experience down on paper, and like the times before I felt more compelled to cherish them without a write up simply because this was a kind gesture from a new friend. Welp I broke that promise to myself, so here we are and boy am I glad I did. This has most things I love in a cigar. It complex, balanced, and completely rich with Flavor. The cocoa notes are incredibly palate pleasing, and with just the right balance of sweet, this cigar is like smoking dessert from beginning to end. My only knock on this cigar has nothing to do with the cigar itself. It has to do with the price. Serino is a relatively unexplored brand for most and although I think it is worth the price of admission, I could see folks unfamiliar with the name shying away from it based on price tag. Those familiar with the cigar though, you know what's up, and you will pay for it again and again.
