This cigar was enjoyed with Topo Chico mineral water

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 10 Possible

A very nice looking, dark brown and slightly oily wrapper, with minimal veining. Cap was applied nicely, and took to my v cutter very well. Cigar had some give, but was packed good. Aroma off the foot was rich tobacco and barnyard hints. Cold draw gave me a earthy taste, with a slight hint of bitter cocoa. The band presentation is a bit too much for me, but it did slide right off without having to tear it off.

Light & Burn: 12 Points of 15 Possible

Cigar lit up well, and held a solid ash for a half inch at a time. The ash was colored with a black ring, followed by a nice white/gray combination. Burn was nice and slow, and stayed pretty even. I did have to touch it up twice to even it out, but nothing major, and did not have to re-light. Smoke volume was thick and chewy, very nice.

Construction: 26 Points of 30 Possible

Draw was a bit tighter than I prefer, but I have had plenty worse, and it did open up just past the half mark. Wrapper stayed intact, and the cap held on throughout the entire smoke. It was packed well, and you could tell that it was a well made cigar.

Flavor: 30 Points of 45 Possible

Right off, this thing is spicy! A bold, peppery spice, along with a deep, rich tobacco and a slight hint of black coffee, very earthy. Right before the half mark, the pepper dies down considerably, but does not go away, allowing the tobacco to really stand out in front. The black coffee is still present, and a very slight hint of the cocoa from the cold draw pops in and out. The last third remains pretty much the same, and I  get a slight spice tingle on the lips.

Summary

I found this to be an enjoyable cigar, despite the fact that it is very one dimensional. No real transitions, and nothing really different about the flavors. The tobacco is very rich, and it did stand out from the rest of the flavor profiles. Medium in strenth, and full in body, with outstanding smoke output. Nothing real special, but very enjoyable.
