I knew nothing about this cigar other than it was rated a 90 when I bought them but, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! This was a beautiful cigar out of the wrapper. Wonderful rich brown wrapper with no blemishes, very few veins and it smelled of pepper and spice. The unlit draw was a little sweet and very easy. I lit this up with much anticipation and i was not disappointed. The smoke was plentiful and full with a great pepper/spicy flavor and it burned evenly and easily all through the smoke. This is a KEEPER! I will have to purchase a box of these babies before my other four are gone. This is a great everyday smoke and even good for gifts and special occasions. I would highly recommend this cigar and would not be shy about giving as a gift. What a great smoke!

I bought this cigar in an auction so I wasn't too sure about it. But, after the first smoke I was hooked and bought a box. These are an easy smoke! They light and draw very easily, typically they burn very evenly mainly due to their great construction. The taste is medium to almost strong but the smoke is full and smooth and they are a very handsome cigar. I love just sitting back and puffing away on these beauties. A great everyday smoke!
