A streaky cigar with some soft spots and an easy draw. Tea notes and earthy, woody flavors precede a sweet, woody finish.

A veiny, chocolate colored cigar that has a firm draw. It’s creamy, with a nutty undertone and some minty, odd flavors on the finish.

This cigar is well made, save for a rough cap. It burns well, with a white ash, showing earthy, leathery flavors with a bit of roughness on the finish, which is also tart.
