The cigar is very firmly rolled, yet has a very light and open draw. Why can't more cigars be like this one!? It was great across the board, did require a few re-lights.

Cocoa rice crisps, barnyard, copper (like a penny)
Loose, Toast, Graham Crackers, Wasabi
Ready sweetness, like Banana Bread, fermented tobacco, cocoa, salty finish - cigar did nearly go out near the end of the first third. Some aggressive puffing and I was able to avoid re-lighting
Salt, Brine, bitterness. Smoke production reduced greatly, near the end of 2nd third starting tasting more toast, hints of liqourice
Toast still there, starting to get notes of cinnamon, kind of reminds me of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal with less sweetness.

Dan has been smoking premium cigars since 2012 and really enjoys all the nuanced flavors but more importantly the ritual and the tradition of cigar smoking really excite him. He likes to smoke anything Nicaraguan or wrapped in a San Andreas.
