Draw on this cigar is almost perfect, just a tad loose and had to be careful not to get the cigar too hot between puffs. Exceptional burn, as the legend Bryan Glynn would say “ just stacking dimes” not a razor but consistent and fairly straight. A decent amount of different flavors present, and I’m sure I missed some as well but nothing too unique or that stands out about the flavor profile. With the exception of the bitter sweet notes that I’m leaning toward black licorice on, there weren’t any shifts in this cigar. This cigar produces billows and billows of thick creamy smoke.

Again I say absolutely awesome from first light, huge plumes of smoke and great smoke texture, smooth and creamy. Flavors- earthy, saltiness, leather, smoked wood, black pepper, and some chocolate notes just on end and that sweet/butter black licorice.
Black licorice, saltiness, caramel, leather, smoked wood, black pepper and mild chocolate notes have all remained. Cigar is still billowing out that smooth and creamy smoke.
Not much change from second to final third, all notes remain Smoke texture is still great and plumes of smoke still continue to billow from the stick.

I’m a tradesman by day in the boating industry specifically in the body work side of things. I work with my hands every day to build some the finest sport yachts in the industry so I can definitely understand the blood sweat and tears that go into the craft of cigars and that is something I appreciate. The culture, experiences and the friends I’ve made along the way are priceless, and I am so thankful to have this opportunity.
