“Overall I thought the cigar had some of the best prelight characteristics I have had. At first, it was promising and seemed like something up my alley with the earth, slightly tannic wood, and baking spices. The peppery, creamy cherry on the retrohale was also quite nice. However, when the profile became more of a drying spice and earth, it got a bit boring. The end caught a bit more of my attention with the pepper coming in. I also would have been happy to see that random mango note stick around for more than a puff or two. All in all, it wasn’t bad, but not something I look to return to. However, this one was from October of 2020, so I may consider picking up a fresher one to compare. That is something I forgot about with this packaging - they stamp the date the cigar was banding on the back of the band. I think this is a really neat concept.”
