A woody, earthy little cigar with hints of coffee grounds and a charry finish that's slightly bitter. The draw is a bit firm.

The draw of this near-black cigar is firm, delivering bitter wood, damp earth and a bit of licorice flavor.

This excessively dark corona draws well, producing a very white ash as it burns. The medium-bodied woody vanilla notes are muddled.
