"A+ when paired right"
With white jerez/xeres/sherry "fino muy seco" and a few months of rest in the humi, this smoke turns from "blah" to "ahhhh!". Perhaps as bright, robust and complex as a CT/ shade smoke gets. It sure aged better than any CT I've attempted coddling.

"Great morning cigar"
This is a fantastic cigar for Saturday or Sunday morning with a cup of Columbian coffee. Never had a wrapper problem or bad burn. Has a hint of spice at the end.

"Smooth with a kick"
The taste is not so bad but not the greatest, the draw and burn are one of the best I have ever had.

I'm usually a maduro smoker and had the Champagne suggested to me by one of the Famous staff. A delightful change to heavier cigars with an interesting mix of flavours that keep me going back for more. I've recommended this to friends who are experienced cigar smokers and they too have reacted the same way.

Smokes like a mild punches like a full strength. This cigar is mild and creamy. With slight hints of nuts and spices. Absolutely no pepperyness. Had it sitting in my box for a few months and I am rather enjoying it. its definitely a nice calm you down before bed cigar. Not sure what to pair with it but I would think a nice dram of Auchentoshan would go quite well with this. I did have a little minor wrapper pealing but nothing to turn you off of this wonderful smoke

Theres a cigar out there for everyone and this type is either yours or its not.
Its not mine but what it is is..a nicely constructed velvety Leathery smoke. Burns cool and consistent. A bit on the bittery side but also has a very nice draw and creamy smoke. You can drive it and enjoy it.. I drove it and parked it.
For what it is its done well and has its place. Im getting away from Conns.

"Not A Fan"
I have many of these sitting in the humidor for a year or so. I decided to have one the other day and I did not enjoy at all. Draw and burn were good but was very harsh taste not desirable at all. I did not enjoy this stick at all.

This is a great choice for an everyday cigar. It's like a good cup of black coffee without any additives to ruin the flavor.

This is the only cigar I've found with a light wrapper to be smokeable. And very, at that

"Wow.....Smooth with a slight kick"
Beautiful cigar. Smooooth with a slight touch of spice, very faint. Great burn, no touch-ups. Most people complain about touch-ups on a cigar. If it's not at the bottom of 4 deep(3 deep at the MOST) & your humidors is right I never experienced having to deal with touch-ups on the burn.
