This cigar was enjoyed with Ice water

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 10 Possible

The cigar has a beautiful Mocha brown wrapper with a light oily sheen. It's a seamless wrapper with small veins. The wrapper smells of leather and sweet chocolate. The cap cuts cleanly and the cold draw gives me taste of leather and oak.

Light & Burn: 14 Points of 15 Possible

The cigar was easy to light and the burn was straight.  The ash held strongly for over 1". When the ash did fall off it left a nice cone shape on the burning end. The cigar required no relights and the smoke production was great. I found it was easy to blow thick smoke rings.

Construction: 28 Points of 30 Possible

The cigar was firm with no soft spots.  The wrapper was seamless with no defects in it at all. There was a small amount of tooth on the wrapper that could be felt when touched.  The band came off with out removing any of the wrapper.

Flavor: 31 Points of 45 Possible

The first 1/3 I pick up sweet chocolate, leather and oak. As I near the end of the first 1/3 it goes from a mild to medium smoke.
The second third shows a sweetness that starts to build while I also picked up on light notes of leather and and coffee. The strength holds at a medium body.
The last 1/3 switched to sweet cream with mild undertones of leather, chocolate, and coffee. The strength holds at a medium. The overall burn time was just short of 2 hours.

Summary

I have to say I am quite impressed by this cigar. It was medium in body but full on flavor. The construction was perfect and the wrapper looked as good as it smoked. Now I have to find more. Thanks to Lubrix for giving me the chance at reviewing this wonderful cigar.
