Yesssss, it is full bodied as advertised but...the dark woody notes balance the pepper. The wrapper is fairly smooth with a slight heat to the lips at the beginning. It is tightly constructed with an easy draw. The ash is medium gray, except the wrapper which is very light gray. Slow, steady burn matures into a toasty and complex symphony of flavor.
This one is hard to smoke. Too strong for my taste and would not recommend.
beautiful construction, nice even burn line, the cigar is firm and tightly packed. I like a stronger cigar and I was pretty excited even though I have not been a big fan of RP and have heard many negative comments about the brand. The cigar produced very little smoke almost to the point I could not get a good mouthful.The taste was disappointing and I will not be purchasing anymore of these sticks.
