A yellowish cigar with an open draw and creamy, though light smoke. The finish is flinty. A mild cigar

This cigar burns with an acrid aroma. It has balsa-wood notes and hints of paper. Mild and sharp on the palate.

This cigar has a light golden wrapper. The burn is uneven, while the draw is easy. It's earthy, with a dry finish. Lacks complexity.
