The prelight is very woody...some cocoa..but I really like the wood...reminds me of fresh cut wood done in large amounts. You can even smell the sap.
The wrapper is delightful. The reddish hued shimmery glow makes it very appetizing. Construction is superb except for lots of small veins.
The early woody taste is really driving the boat on this one. I'm beginning to taste some caramel, some sweetness that comes from butter. It's medium body.
The halfway point is usually where the cigar begins to show off. But it takes the first half to get there.
This inexpensive cigar has all the attributes of a more expensive cigar. Care was taken when developing it. It gives off the the character of a well aged cigar....meaty and possessing the "X" Factor.
I could easily find myself buying a box and letting it age and see where that takes us.

Burns even, oily brown/black wrapper, and great smell. Planning on a bigger ring liked it that much.

"Hints of Havana!"
A must have stick. With a profile consisting of the distinct taste of real Cuban cigars mixed with RP's classic earthiness they are sure to please any palate. A great alternative if you can't get your hands on the ever elusive Cuban leaf. Every humidor should have a solid stock to enjoy. A little age and you are in business.
