Compact and box-pressed with a milk chocolate colored wrapper. The uneven burn corrects itself and the draw imparts a sweet and savory array of cedar, vanilla, salted nuts and a floral finish.

This solid little stick is well made and nicely box pressed. It burns and draws well. While it has a grassy note in the beginning, it develops some spicy notes. A pleasant, light-bodied cigar.
