Truly amazing cigar. Got a test flight on Auctioneer, on a whim. I was blown away from the first puff. So rich, so delicious, so special. I can easily compare them to Ashton VSG's, at 1/2 the price. Nothing bad to report, because they are flawless. Bought a box immediately. Heavenly, with age, even better, if that's possible. Don't hesitate on these. Just amazing, really.

Nice looking cigar, dark wrapper with some tooth to it. Pre-light draw was spot on so I fired it up on the front porch watching the rain.
Flavor was mainly coffee and tobacco, with some mild pepper spiciness. The flavor did not change throughout the cigar, the coffee flavors intensified a bit as smoked, and the spiciness diminished some. Burn was a bit funky and the ash flaky for the first inch, but it evened out to a sharp burn with a solid ash after that.
It was a solid medium in the strength category for me.
