Left me with a mellow spiceyness
I was looking for an inexpensive smoke for the cold days when I can’t spend a long time on the deck. This cigar build was slightly inconsistent with some firm to hard spots but nothing too soft. The cold draw was very pleasant, with and easy to medium pull. Easy but not too easy. Once lit it was very mild on the palate with the pepper notes not harsh at all. The body was very smooth and creamy and again very mild for a “medium” body cigar. The ash was very nice and held on through the first third. It my have held on longer but I was a little rough. The burn was razor sharp and never had to retouch it or relight it. It was a good full 1 hour smoke. The smoke output was very good. This is an excellent smoke for the price. I would highly recommend it for beginners, cost conscious, and those who want a nice daily smoke that doesn’t hurt the wallet.
I did not enjoy the taste of this cigar. I bought a five pack and will be giving the balance of the pack to someone else. It had a poor draw and burned unevenly. Not good for me. Won’t buy these again.
