Highly recommended

OK here is the deal. $7.50 is the price paid for this vitola. That is a considerably large 6X54, which I will state in aggression, is a REALLY GOOD vitola for the flavors expressed in this cigar. it has been a while since I have had enough time to smoke a cigar that would on average take upwards of 2 hours to smoke, but i am glad I was able to carve out the time, because for the $$, this cigar is damn good. Like strikingly good. I wouldn't consider it incredibly dynamic or multidimensional but what you get is extended deliciousness. It was like chewing on a smoked tootsie roll for an hour and 45 minutes, which for me is pretty much heaven. I could certainly see some not enjoying it as much, but for me the profile is right in my wheelhouse, so if you like a dark richness in your cigars coupled with a subtle woodiness, you will love this great valued smoke.
