"Mellow and elegant"
The size and natural color of the 898's attracted me right off the bat. I've smoked two thus far, and enjoyed each one. I find these very soothing and mellow in character, with nutty notes. Just the right size and feel in the hand, with large clouds of smoke. The burn is uniform, and I was able to enjoy these down to the nub. I'm looking forward to my next one already!

"Great Vegas Story w/ this 898"
Im in Vegas just sitting back watching my friends playing Black Jack, Im just enjoying my cigar. From accross the room some lady yells out "O'crap, whats that stink!?" I just lifted it up to my mouth, took a nice long draw blew out the smoke and smiled at her. Everyone else mentioned how good it smelled, just FYI...Seriously though this a great cigar. Very smooth and consistant.
