Pre-Light: 8 Points of 10 Possible
Nice looking cigar, had a nice looking wrapper, was well rolled, not any prominent veins. Looked like it was bunched well, felt good to hold. Cap cut clean, pre-light draw was a bit sweet. Wrapper was a nice color, pretty silky smooth, not rough. Didn't feel any hard or lumpy spots, again was a well rolled stick. Had a nice sweet smell to it.

I think this cigar performed well. It was a bit windy outside, and I only had to touch it up once. It did go out on me once, which is rare, I tend to smoke pretty fast, but it was also humid so overall it burned and smoked well. I didn't risk getting the ash on me, so it was tapped when needed. Smoke time was right around 45min-1hr which isn't bad for me if you know me.
Construction: 25 Points of 30 Possible
Again cigar performed well overall. The draw was good, provided plenty of smoke, didn't run, or canoe. The cap was applied nicely, and it cut clean and didn't tear, which can be annoying sometimes. The wrapper was nice, soft leather feel, more of a milk chocolate color. If it weren't for the slight touch ups, and going out it would have scored higher, but it didn't affect my smoking experience.
Flavor and Aroma: 40 Points of 45 Possible
The cigar stayed pretty mild-medium for me throughout. It was a good cigar don't get me wrong, I just didn't notice any complexity in the 3rd's, but what it had was very smooth, and stayed consistent. The 1st 3rd started off very sweet, with an almost nutty flavor, nice full smoke, not over bearing but no trouble in getting what you wanted. It was great in smoke volume, and stayed again, on the low end of medium for me. Quite enjoyable. I have no idea what this cigar was, but it was very good. 2nd 3rd and final 3rd were more of the same, the cigar never got hot, and smoked great.
Overall this was a very good cigar. As I've said above, I have no clue what this cigar was. I sent my guess over, but I'm sure I was wrong lol. I want to thank Appollo and Geeks for the chance to review this cigar, and give it a shot. I very much enjoyed this cigar, there was nothing offensive about it, and it smoked very smooth. The smoke was great, never got hot, it would've been nice it if had a little more strength, but sometimes you're not in the mood for something like that. This was mild by any means, don't get me wrong, I enjoyed what it gave. Thanks again!!
