This cigar was enjoyed with Glenfiddich 12 year old Reserve Single Malt Whisky

Pre-Light: 17 Points of 10 Possible

This cigar looked beautiful! It was vary clean, really no veins, and a nice cap. It was firm to the touch with no soft spots.
I used a double guillotine cutter to cut just a bit off the end. With such a big ring gauge I didn't want, or need to, cut much. It cut very easily and cleanly.
The pre-light draw was smooth. It had a dry fungus taste, almost like mushrooms, which I enjoyed.

Lighting and Burn: 12 Points of 15 Possible

This cigar was very easy to light (just a little big). The burn was very even at first. By the 2/3 the burn became diagonal, but was still good.
The ash was very solid. The ash stayed on for almost 1.5 inches before it finally fell off. The ash was an even salt & pepper color.

Construction: 24 Points of 30 Possible

As I previously mentioned the construction of this cigar looked great! The wrapper was very clean. It had a very nice golden color.
The draw was very easy. Each draw provided big, billowy clouds of smoke.
The cigar was firm to the touch and provided a consistent smoke.

Flavor and Aroma: 32 Points of 45 Possible

One question you hear sometimes is "Can a mild cigar have flavor?"
Let me tell you that this cigar has flavor! I normally enjoy full flavored cigars, and always think that mild cigars will be boring and a waste of time. This cigar proved me wrong and showed me that I am missing out!

1/3: Started with a slight fungus flavor. Some dry wood, almost like fir. As it got more into the 1/3 a very nice caramel flavor appeared. I was excited as the flavor was really progressing and changing.

2/3: A pleasant creamy flavor started to form. Some spice started to develop, like a white pepper. The cream and caramel was accented by a nutty flavor. The billows of smoke had a surprising floral aroma. I had never experienced this and really enjoyed it.

3/3: A grassy flavor came out eventually. The creaminess continued strong. I also noticed a nutmeg flavor.

Summary

Overall I really enjoyed this cigar. The flavors progressed very well and continued to change. Pairing the scotch went very well. They complimented each other perfectly!
This completely made me rethink connecticut wrappers.
I think this is a great cigar for anyone to have. I am looking forward to getting some for mine.
