This little stick was sent to me by Walt White from the Stogie Review as part of a prize for a contest I won over there. After taking the target out of the cellophane, I noticed a light barnyard-like smell, with a sweet sugar like aroma at the foot. She was packed evenly from cap to foot, slightly springy to the touch. After cutting I found the draw to be slightly looser than I liked, but not annoying in the slightest. After evenly toasting and lighting her up, I tasted some slight spice, and a little bit of a nutty flavor. Approaching halfway, the cigar remained in the mild body range, and had one of the creamiest smoke’s I’ve ever tasted; she continued on like this until I was forced to put her out. Overall, I enjoyed this smoke very much.

Recommendation: If you enjoy milder smokes with a little spice and creaminess, definitely give this one a try.
