Cigars Smoked: 1
I am very excited to try this cigar as I have heard many great cigars. Pre-light draw offers great resistance and a cocoa essence.
The first third lends rich, dark flavors with hints of chocolate and cinnamon. There is a slight spice yet the profile remains smooth and rounded out by woodiness.
Into the second third the woodiness continues. The cigar remains very smooth and the slight spice is still present. Not much else changes.
Entering the final third the spice ramps up. A cocoa essence takes the place of the chocolate near the end. A harsh cedar starts to develop as I nub the cigar. I let it go out shortly after this point.
Overall, this was a great cigar that I would visit again. I do not know if it fully lived up to the hype but not much does these days. I found it to be very balanced with an array of flavors. I believe I paid two dollars on the auction sites and I would definitely pay that price again. Hell, I would be willing to go up to full retail. This cigar rates a 9.1/10 meaning I would pick up a 5
