The wrapper is dark brown, slightly oily with large and medium veins. The seam is visible and smooth. The cap is very neat and is topped with a pigtail. The body is pact fairly firm with a slight give when gently squeezed. The band is very plain and simple.
The foot has the aroma of cedar and hay spice. I clipped the head with my Cuban Crafters cutter. The pre-light draw has slight resistance and the flavor of cedar. I toasted the foot with my Blazer micro torch.
The flavor starts with strong cedar and earth. In the background there is a lot of roasted coffee beans and spice. The spice has the flavor and heat of cinnamon. The retrohale has roasted nuts and toasted wood. The finish is very long with cinnamon spice. The flavor is full with the body and strength at medium. The draw is a bit stiff do to some tunneling. The burn is a little bit wavy. The ash is light gray and compact.
During the second half the flavor of the spice changes to cedar and black pepper. There really is a grassiness to it with plenty of hay. The finish has lightly roasted coffee beans. The draw has improved since I past the tunnel.
This cigar has a complex flavor profile that is easily approachable to the new and experienced cigar smoker. There is plenty of wood, spice and coffee flavors that are well rounded with the grassy undertones. The construction is a hit or miss with this cigar. Pick up a five pack and give them a try.
