Jerry M. 09/21/2013 View Details Maybe I got a bad one. I stored it correctly in my humidor for over 3 months after buying - but mine had extremely uneven burn issues that never corrected itself and the draw was so loose it was like sucking air through a straw. I had to manually try to correct the burn quite a few times, but it came right back. I had to re-light once. The flavor was nice and balanced - no pepper and no spice, so if you like mild this is great. But with the burn and draw issues, there are too many others in the price range.

Jerry M. 08/29/2013 View Details Nice dried fruit flavor with no bitterness. But the burn was horrendous on this. It kept tunneling and going out. Maybe I got a bad one, I may try another because the flavor was good.
Brian V. 07/19/2013 View Details By far one of my favorite sticks. Taste is superb and aroma is even better. One of my go to cigars for any occasion.
Ryan I. 03/01/2013 View Details A well balanced cigar for those that aren't into spicy or strong flavor. In my opinion this cigar should have tied with the La Aroma in Cigar Aficianado's Top 25 2011 but both are great and are both currently in my humidor.
