I really enjoyed this cigar for the first two thirds. It had a rich creamy smoke that sticks to the mouth and a lot of bold full flavors. The chocolatey notes gave me somewhat of a brownie vibe. Unfortunately, in the last third the smoke became a bit bitter and some of the flavors began to wane. I also struggled with a few burn issues and had to do a lot of touching up. I do not typically smoke cigars this large, but I think who prefer larger bold cigars would enjoy it. This cigar would pair well with a sweetened creamy coffee, dark rum, or dark beer.
