Sporting a rich, dark, mottled, and slightly oily wrapper that leaves no doubt to the quality of its construction.Beginning with a cold draw, I noted a mix of natural tobacco & cedar flavors. Once lit, my first draw delivered notes of wood, natural tobacco, & black pepper that remains present throughout the smoke that trade places as I drew from first third to last. From start to finish the draw was perfect & the burn was near razor sharp requiring no touch-ups. Overall, this is a medium-full strength, medium to full-bodied smoke crafted by a true master blender that unequivocally supports a box purchase. Keeps these in your humidor and share them at your own peril!
