Not a good smoke at all. I was actually surprised. This was gifted to me by a friend who only smokes Habanos and high end NCs.

It's a nice looking cigar, nice wrapper, heavy in the hand. Draw is a bit too tight. A few stabs with the draw tool helped a little but the draw was still too tight for my liking.

First part...Nice flavor and aroma. Medium-full "strength", nice finish. A few odd notes.

Second inch or so...odd notes becoming more pronounced. Crooked burn.

Around the halfway point, this cigar is tasting absolutely awful. I tossed it before I even finished half of it. Heavy chemical taste on the draw, really bad on the finish. Yuck.

Final thoughts...I guess this may have just been a bad stick, but it was bad enough to scare me away from ever buying them.

Hmm, that is odd considering this is a premium. It could have been a bad roll or something. I've never smoked one. Thanks for the review.
