"if you like clove you will love this!"
starts sweet, and the clove flavor stays with the whole cigar, it is a sweeter cigar overall but keeps good flavor the whole time. Should definitely try these.

"Smooth, with a bit more Punch than other Amborsia"
As usual with Jonathan Drew's Ambrosia, the burn was nice and the build is excellent. On this Vann Reef, you get a bit more spicer flavor than say... Mother Earth. Its a very nice blend that seemed to maintain its balance. Burn is slow and cool, kept it's ash very solidly. I tipped it on 3rds, with the last 3rd being the end, which I must say I burned to about 1/2". So if you like Ambrosia, but yearned for a bit more strength, this may be the one for you. I totally enjoyed!

"A welcome change from the plain 'ol-plain 'ol!!"
I recently purchased this one to try it to satisfy my curiosity. I ordered the VannReef because it is my favorite size. I was pleasantly surprised to find hints of clove in the aroma.
The taste was mildly clovey and non-cloying, but the aroma was pleasantly pure clove. towards the finish, I was reminded of the smell and taste of a good bordeaux. My girlfriend has declared it the only stogie I can smoke in the house while she is there! I'm definitely trying the other varieties in this series!
