Highly recommended

This cigar has received a lot of accolades recently making multiple top lists in 2020, so naturally it was my turn to decide if it was worthy. To start, I though the cigar was fairly flat in the first third. It just wasn't making a statement early on so I became skeptical of the fan fair. Then I hit the second third, and oh my my did it open up. It's like being a pirate and searching for treasure for days, and finally you find the chest, and inside is all the gold you could ever want. The flavors were bright, bold, and rich and for what it lacked in the beginning, it more than made up in the rest of the cigar. $15.00 per cigar is tough to swallow though, so I do think it is a little over priced, despite the amount of tobacco you get. If it were somewhere even in the $12.00 range, I think it would be a great deal. All thing considered though, this is a great cigar and I think this is going to be a good year for Adventura.
