A dark maduro covered in glue spots near the head. It's a woody, earthy smoke with some toastiness and a menthol finish.

Heavy hickory notes come through each puff of this large, dark cigar, which draws and burns evenly. Sweet tobacco flavor lingers on the finish.

A dark and veiny cigar that draws well for such a long size. The smoke opens with very earthy coffee flavors that end on a spicy note.

A solid bunch and an oily wrapper. The cigar has a good draw and burn, with a woody, herbal spiciness and a cinnamon finish.
