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!
