This cigar was gifted to me by a generous BOTL around Christmas time. This doesn't seem to be a very widely available cigar, at least mostly being sold at Diamond Crown lounges. And with that exclusivity comes the expectedly exorbitant price tag. From what I can find, this cigar line retails in the $11 - $17 range.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★½
This was a really nice looking cigar. It had a Colorado shade wrapper that looks to be of high quality and didn't have many large veins or blemishes. It also had a pleasant, slightly sweet prelight aroma. This pyramid was firm to the touch, especially at the tapered head.

Construction : Rating: ★★★★☆
A well made cigar, no draw or burn problems.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★½☆
This cigar was started out creamy and smooth with some grassy and nutty flavors present, definitely mild. A slightly sweet finish developed as it progressed toward the middle. This cigar became a little stronger as it progressed toward the end with the nutty flavors intensifying and the sweetness on the finish fading away. The cigar maintained its smoothness throughout.

Value : Rating: ★★½☆☆
It's really tough to justify the asking price of these even though I did enjoy it. Not enough flavor to be a $10+ cigar.

Overall Rating : Rating: ★★★½☆
This was an enjoyable cigar, and it was complex relative to most other mild smokes. I like the flavors present and think they went well together; however, I think they would have been better represented by a stronger blend. The flavors were there, but they weren't intense enough to make a real lasting impression. Regardless, if you are a big fan of milder cigars and don't mind the price tag, I recommend it for a try.

    This was a terrible cigar, I paid $19 at a cigar lounge. What a waste of money. This cigar was so bland, no flavor, one dimensional.
