Upon taking the first puff you realize this isn't a run of the mill dominican cigar.
The complex flavors tantalize your taste buds from the start and continues to build throughout the cigar. I have to say that I was delightfully surprized with the flavors this cigar produced. 
Having the word "Dominican" writen on the band gave me the preconception of dull, mild,
flavorless and boring as many Dominican bundle and even box cigars have turned out to be in the past. Then I looked at the website and was astounded at how many different kinds of tobacco
has been blended into this cigar. The only thing that would prevent me from buying this cigar in the future is the $60 a box pricetag. This cigar rounds out with morning coffee better than most and I would love to always have some on hand. I will keep my eye open for sales.
