This cigar puzzled me given its crazy name. It has a complex, mild and earthy flavor register, but I did not find it as varied and lively as described elsewhere. After three, I am still wanting some richer flavor notes, but getting instead a constant unsweetened tea notes throughout. The complexity is there but hard to identify, all on the deep end of the scale. Not bitter, but not sweet either. Might be perfect though after a spicy meal, or with catfish and a mint julep.
