    The review

    The wrapper is dark, intimidatingly dark, and dry. There are a few veins and the wrapper feels like sandpaper. The darkness makes the blue and silver band stand out. Especially the silver of the Masonic logo. The foot band is black with master mason written on it. The construction feels good. The cigar has a nice aroma of barnyard and manure, and it’s quite strong.

    The cold draw is fine. It leaves salt and pepper on the palate, with licorice. The cigar starts strong. Coffee, citrus, pepper, and salt. There is some soil and leather too. Slowly sweetness and pepper join the flavor party. The retrohale gives more wood. Pepper gets stronger. There are slowly some nuts showing up, and more wood.

    The second third starts with wood, spice, pepper, soil, and a mild nuttiness. The retrohale gives smooth cedar, slightly sweet. Coffee returns and there is also some leather. It turns to wood, soil, leather, and chocolate with a hint of spice. The start of the final third is the point where retrohaling the cigar becomes troublesome due to the pepper. There is some chocolate and pepper in the mouth, with soil. There is also a strange but pleasant carrot flavor. Every few puffs there is some sweetness, mild though. Pepper gets stronger with coffee returning to the scene. In the finale, there is wood, soil, leather, and pepper with a hint of citrus to bind it all together.

    The draw is great. The white ash is beautiful. The smoke is good, enough in volume, nice in color and thickness. The burn is straight as an arrow. The strength is medium to full body. But the flavor is out of this world, strong, bold, full without losing balance. The smoke time is two hours and fifteen minutes.

    Strength: Medium-full
    Flavor: Full
