This review comes from my old site, Cigar Aggregate. Over time I will be moving all of the reviews to here. I will also be editing the ones already posted that linked to my old site to now include the full review.

The cigar has an even color with minor nicks around the wrapper. Pre-light draw gives hints of cedar.
The first third starts off with an oak and cedar woodiness and develops into a smooth toasted leather. There is a slight marshmallow essence mixed with a peppery spice on the retrohale.
Into the second third the oak continues with the notes of toasted leather. I can tell this is a great cigar. It reminds me of when I was a child. I would walk by the cigar shop with my father, and I could smell the premium cigars they were smoking. It is that same quality tobacco fragrance. In this third I had to touch up the burn a few times but nothing outrageous. A barnyard flavor and aroma develops. However, it complements the other flavors nicely. This is quite an enjoyable cigar.
In the final third the flavors start to get a little harsh as the woody-barnyard flavors continue. I let it go out shortly into this third as the harshness starts to dominate.
Overall, this was a very pleasant cigar. However, it left me wanting just a little more. I give it an 8.5/10.
