A beautiful toro, well constructed dry wrapper. Notes of fresh cocoa before I even lit it! Great draw and flavors of white pepper and a hint of floral.
This is one of my favorite cigars. The construction and appearance are fantastic, along with the draw. Burn is pretty good as well, and the construction is great too. Ash color is a dark gray. Taste is pretty good--a lot of spice in the first third, with the slow addition of cream and sweetness. If the cigars are a bit harsh at first, let them air or age them a bit. The box I received was definitely entering the sick period. Overall very good cigar, and everything came in great condition.
