This Full Flavored cigar smoked perfectly. Great taste from prelight all the way til my fingertips started getting too warm.
This cigar is well costructed and full of complex notes of cocoa, nuts and cream. The attention to detail is evident as each cigar in every box has been the same. Immediately upon lighting, the aroma and flavors were absolutely amazing. It has become my favorite smoke and is always my choice when entertaining friends and clients.
For those of you who know Nick Melillo, you know this is made from someone who knows and loves tobacco--particularly Connecticut Broadleaf. Yes, he had a big hand in the Liga 9 and yes there are SOME similarities but this is it s own cigar. I m going to be controversial and say it s BETTER. If you like the spicy, earthy filler AJs coming out of Nicaragua and you like the wrapper flavors of the Liga, this is their love child. Box worthy, perfect or self-correcting burn on the last six I ve enjoyed, generous real estate to cut on the cap, and my favorite cigar right now.
just got a 5 pack and gave it a try. don t want to say harsh, but a bit strong at first. after the first few drags however it mellowed right out and was nicely flavorful. i don t like bone-shaking strenth or flavor, and overall this is nicely done. i would consider this cigar more med to full than falt out full. good smoke and very nice burn, pretty sharp. looking forward to the rest of the pack.
