"Starts out mellow, ends with a kick."
This cigar has everything a good Nicaraguan puro should have: rich flavor, great Pepin construction, beautifully smooth wrapper, and good power. It starts out mellow but watch out and smoke it slowly...half way through is turns into a power-house smoke. It's got a similar vibe to the Rocky Patel Decade but with a tighter draw and perhaps a bit more strength.

"This is a True Nicaruaguan Smoke"
This stick starts with a peppery sweetness I have found in most Nicaraguan puros. The draw was perfect, producing enough smoke to start my own rain cloud. Smoke was smooth and creamy with many flavor nuances. Burn was straight, construction was beautiful. Medium in strength and full body in flavor. The only problem I had was this cigar wants to be smoked faster then I prefer, so the burn wanted to dwindle out quickly. Over all I am really satisfied with this smoke. Worth the money!!
