I am not a fan of flavored cigars, so I would not smoke one of these again. I have not seen any in quite awhile fortunately. The sweetness is way overpowering and enough to make one sick. This cigar smoked very wet and hot.
Very mild cigar. I got a spicy flavor when smoking this cigar. A spicy flavor I could not pin down to what exactly it was. I prefer a stronger cigar, but would recommend this cigar as a nice change of pace.
Nice looking little figurado with 2 nice looking, smooth wrappers barber poling a solid feeling cannon and giving off a nice earthy aroma. It cut's well and has a firm feel to the draw prelite. It kicks off with a nice spice hint and a creamy floral note. A bakers chocolate and a vanilla weave in and out. Good burn and smoke production through first half of smoke. Flavors change up a little at about the half way point. The chocolate becomes a mocha, the creaminess fades some, the spice picks up a little, leather shows up and there are molasses hint's in the aftertaste. This is a good little cigar with a nice flavor profile. Not to complex but well balanced and enjoyable plus it looks neat and the 2 wrappers work well together.
Got one and forgot about having it. Smoked it earlier this week. When I lit it, I got a sweet spicy taste which lasted through most of the smoke. Every now and then, I would get a campfire/outdoorsy taste. I would smoke this cigar again.
Not a bad cigar. Nice feel, good pre-light aroma. When I lit the cigar, it had a good draw and even burn. I got hints of coffee and a bit of pepper when smoked. I will be looking for more to add to my humidor.
