This cigar was enjoyed with black coffee

Pre-Light: 16 Points of 10 Possible

Slightly oily wrapper with just a few small veins. It had an aroma of cedar and was very firm with almost no give when squeezed. It clipped with no problems. When I took a pre-light draw, I tasted the cedar and some chocolate.

Lighting and Burn: 8 Points of 15 Possible

It took a bit of effort to light, but that is to be expected from such a large ring gauge. About an inch into the cigar the burn became terribly uneven and remained that way for the remainder of the smoke. It had a flaky dark gray ash that would get to be about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inches before it needed to be ashed.  

Construction: 22 Points of 30 Possible

This cigar had fairly nice construction, a well applied cap, and a dark wrapper with a reddish hue. There was a bit too much resistance on the draw for my liking, but it was still within the range of what I would call acceptable.

Flavor and Aroma: 30 Points of 45 Possible

First third: It opened with strong cedar and cocoa flavors with a light spiciness. After the first ten puffs or so, a nutty flavor became noticeable.

Second third: As it progressed the flavor rounded out with the addition of earthy notes and caramel. The cedar remained strong, and i noticed a faint taste of apple.

Final third: The final third was much like the second, but with the addition of charred wood, and the cocoa returned to the forefront.


In the end, I would say this was a good tasting complex cigar that burned horribly. It was a real pain to smoke. In part because of the burn issues, but also because in my opinion a RG of 60 is silly and uncomfortable.
