This cigar was enjoyed with black coffe

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 10 Possible

The cap was respectable, near perfect.  Easily cut and perfect.  Some slight smal veins through both of the werappers used.  The cigar itself was firm with no soft spots.  Kind of hard to explain the aroma except pleasant, having two wrappers.  

Lighting and Burn: 14 Points of 15 Possible

Tis cigar procuced lots of smoke.  Just into the 2/3 it did develop a slightly uneven burn which could be accounted for the use of 2 wrappers.  It corrected itself within an inch of smoking.  Light gray firm ash.   This cigar did burn quicker than you would expect.  No touch ups or relights

Construction: 26 Points of 30 Possible

excellent presentation with a ribbon on the foot.  The barber pole did not have even stripes, one wider than the other.  Not to be too picky, I cant immagine the difficulty in rolling it to begin with.  One small area the wrapper was lifted slightly, but never created problems in smoking.  The draw was perfect, making it an enjoyable cigar  

Flavor and Aroma: 31 Points of 45 Possible

This came out medium bodied in lighting and maintained that through the fist 2/3.  The flavors were tremendous and complex with hints of cedar.  I speculate the complexity come from the fillers in conjunction with the 2 wrappers used and was enjoyable.  In the last 3/3 the flavors warmed up slightly.  In the end the head softened up, and started to get bitter, letting me know I had enough


Overall, very nice cigar and well worth smoking.  The barber pole wrapper was unique and my first.  The best thing I found with it was the complexity of the flavors and very enjoyable.  I would definitely smoke one again and recommend it to others
