REVIEW NOTES

Having never tried a sweetened cap cigar since high school, I though I'd give it a go & I was pleasantly surprised. Maybe my taste buds are a little washed out, but I could hardly pick up any added sweetness at all. Maybe I was expecting a lot more. This turned out to be a nice, mild, morning cigar. The wrapper was a beautiful light brown, very smooth and sporting very small veins. It was uniformly packed with no hard or soft spots. After clipping, the draw was just right and it lit readily. It produced a good amount of smoke that was mild and aromatic. The flavor was certainly mild with no real complexity, but it was uniformly toasty and pleasant. I was surprised that the retrohale had a little spice to it so that was a bonus. The construction was great. It burned completely even and the ash held on for half the length of the cigar before I tapped it off (http://www.twitpic.com/5r6ue8). I bought 5 of these to round out the shipping on an auction site and it was a very pleasant surprise. I bought the candela version at a B&M just to try since you don't see that wrapper very often & I'll be interested to see if there is any contrast. A nice change of pace for a usual maduro smoker.
