“Overall this was a very well done cigar. The performance was great besides one small touch up, which is impressive given the long burn time. The profile was also quite interesting as it had a few transitions throughout, each one being pretty noticeable. I really enjoyed the moments of cream, sweetness, and spice, however, the more full, earthy, peppery flavors near the end were a nice change of pace. It also is a cigar that I would not have guessed had a Connecticut shade wrapper if I was blindfolded. I think this would be a great cigar for someone that typically avoids Connecticut shade cigars to try because it offers something different. For that reason, it’s also fitting for a Connecticut shade smoker as it offers a different expression without going too far out on a limb.”
