Right out of the gate I got a huge pepper blast for 5-6 puffs. It settled down to a sweater woody taste and finished as a nutty flavor. The ash dropped about 1/2 way and second ash held on til finished. I got about 65 mins. Draw was good. The band had slight glue on the wrapper but pulled off without damage. I think this really needs some time to age to make for a better experience. I may buy a 5 pack to age for 1-2 years and give it another try. All in all it was just OK for me. Prob 82-85 but with some time to rest I think it could be a lot better.
A terrific smoke from start to finish. I d definitely give it a 97. Good draw even burn smooth as silk what s not to like.
I love this stick! Might be because it was the first cigar I found to make me crave for more! I have now refined my palate since first taste but this is my go to daily stick. I have had canoeing to some extent on every one I have smoked to date. This is a large cigar and I am always active so the canoeing could be from my lack of attention.
This cigar says here I am ... deal with it! it s a pepper rush at the start, but hang on, it mellows out to a nice medium strength AND full flavor. It ends with a smooth almost cuban-like earthy taste. Draw and Burn excellent, gives up generous amount of smoke. This would make a great 4th of July BBQ smoke specially for the Grill Master . It will taste even better with a dark beer, Cognac, whiskey, spicy rum ... the previus review is spot on, gotta get you some O this!
Fantastic Med. to Full bodied cigar at a price point much below its closest competitors
That subido wrapper is definitely subido. Good job guy s...
Dark and delectably delicious from end-to-end. Great burn, medium-bodied, plenty of rich Nicaraguan flavor, but it s the oily Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper that steals the show with its naturally sweet taste and adds excellent balance to the smoke. Started with a single, then a 5-pack, and now I m ready for a box.
Loved it. Lots of rich smoke. The cold draw starts with a very earthy and almost salty taste. The first third has a leather and earth taste. Lots of flavor. The burn was a little uneven and needed some touching up, but not too bad. I will buy some more.
I know I have a great stick when I smoke it so far down it starts to burn my fingers. Outstanding Cigar with that just gets better as it burns down. Had to work it a little to keep it burning evenly but the payoff was well worth it. This stick will always have a home in my humidor!
This cigar performs for the money! Great taste and good draw.
