A dark brown robusto with a reddish tinge. It's bold and zesty from the very first puff, taking on notes of black tea and oak before a very notable mintiness emerges.

Dark and veiny with an oily wrapper, the cigar draws well, though the burn is uneven. It's a peppery smoke with roasted nut flavors and a red pepper finish.
