Excellent cigar, especially for the price point ! Firm, well-made, Smokes slowly but easy draw. I don t usually smoke the smaller ring guages, but this one was really outstanding. Would easily be a go to cigar for me! It s a beautiful little cigar. Draws easily, burns consistently. Well-made, firm, does not come apart in your mouth. To me, it seemed to have a bit of a sweet taste and after taste. My palate is not well developed enough to sort out the spicy or flowery elements. But the aroma was wonderful. All I ever looked for in a cigar. I just wish they made it in a lancera length. I think this cigar would make a great lancera.
