This cigar was enjoyed with water

Pre-Light: 10 Points of 10 Possible

This cigar had a nice dark brown color to it. The wrapper Had a nice dark color, slightly toothy with a oily sheen to it. The barrel of the cigar was firm no soft spots to it. The aroma along the body of the cigar and at the 'foot, had a slightly sweet grass, and straw smell. The cap and the foot seem to be well done.

Lighting and Burn: 14 Points of 15 Possible

The cap cut nicely , with no cracking. Upon lighting the cigar as for me is always a bit tough, to start once it got started it burned nicely. It produced a nice volume of smoke that was a bit dry to my palate. The ash was of a salt and pepper color stack.

Construction: 27 Points of 30 Possible

The construction of this cigar was very good typical for a diesel. Very few Seam lines were visible , the cap look to be well applied , with the nipple at the foot of the cigar. The draw of the cigar was a bit tight in the beginning, and loosened up nicely through out the length of the remaining part of the cigar. It did require a small touch up just before the halfway point to balance it out.

Flavor and Aroma: 40 Points of 45 Possible

Once the cigar got going, It had a nice earthy ,woody taste to it , with a dry smoke on exhale. As a continued in the first 3rd, the earthiness picked up more. On retrohale, the smoke was smooth with a slight spice. Going into the second 3rd of a cigar, the woodiness came in a little bit more with a hint of some leather and a touch of cocoa. The last 3rd of the cigar didn't change much it continue with the earthiness and the woodiness.


Overall I enjoyed the cigar very much it fits my wheelhouse pretty well, I like a cigar that is earthy and dry. I also really enjoyed the size of the cigar. I think everybody should give this cigar a try.
