First let me say that I am a novice cigar smoker at this point, so please bear this in mind.
The cigar cut and lit normally. It appeared to be well made, the burn was very even, and the ash held nicely. Draw was perfect for me.
The cigar started off slow for me on taste. It was mild but nothing worth noting. After the ash dropped, almost 1/2 the way down, the taste intesified. At this point it was a very good flavor on the upper mild level.
Bottom line for me. A decent smoke that I would buy again.
