Appearance is luxurious. Burns sharp thru first half than needed a few touch up. The draw is a little tight and the smoke output is low to medium. Extremely smooth cigar almost down to mellow taste. Started with medium pepper and leather then went to just leather/wood flavors. This a good smoke. I expected more flavor compared to other comparable cigars at the same price point. Notably the Ashton Aged Maduro or Padron 1926. I enjoyed the 5 pack and would buy again ONLY when it s on sale.
