This cigar was enjoyed with Strawberry lemonade

Pre-Light: 20 Points of 10 Possible

This cigar has a medium brown wrapper, some veins but wrapped so neatly you can hardly feel them.  It also has a small amount of oil within the wrapper.  

There is no band on this cigar, but it does sport a shaggy foot that is about ½ inch or so.
It is pretty firm to the touch; the torpedo cap cut effortlessly and clean. The aroma is a very strong tobacco mixed with barnyard (It is quite pleasant).


Light & Burn: 13 Points of 15 Possible

Because of the large shaggy foot, this cigar takes a little work to get lit and start smoking.  Once past the shaggy end where the wrapper is it starts to burn great, leaving behind a solid but flaky ash that is white and black.  I did have a small issue as a tunneler started in the last third that was quickly corrected. The smoke output is very thick and smells great, and the burn rate was a pace that I like.

Construction: 30 Points of 30 Possible

Overall this was a great constructed cigar.  The wrapper was evenly applied, the shaggy foot looks great, and the cap is neatly applied as well as cuts perfect.  

The pre-draw was very easy and surprisingly stayed this way throughout the entire smoke.  The draw reminds me of one you would find in a larger box press cigar.

Flavor: 29 Points of 45 Possible

First third – From the start there is a very strong pepper blast of flavor, followed but a creamy nutty flavor.

Second Third – During the second third, the pepper mellow out.  The flavors are leather, oak, and leaves a citrus flavor aftertaste especially in the nasal area. It has a nice medium strength body and smooth creamy smoke.

Last third – The last third the flavor becomes definite leather, mixture of pepper, and a strong tobacco flavor.  During this period the strength given off is very full and delivering a high nicotine content.

Summary

Overall I’m impressed with this cigar.  It is very nicely constructed, appealing shaggy foot and smokes very well.  The flavor profiles change at every third, and packs a full strength at the end which being a maduro smoker I really liked.  

This smokes at a nice pace, roughly 1 hour, medium to full strengths during the cigar. This is a cigar I would recommend to maduro smokers, but not to a novice cigar enthusiast.
