First look at this cigar and it’s amazing, the dark oily wrapper and the price just caps it off. On first light this cigar has great smoke, perfect draw, and wonderful subtle flavors. The cigar continues to be wonderful throughout. I would rate this one on the stronger side of the 3 scale for most people, but it is still a fantastic cigar for anyone to give a shot to. Would I smoke this one again? Yes for sure I am excited to see whatelse this company has in the future. Would I give it humidor space? Actually this one would be great to have a few sticks around for other options at home when you didn’t know what to smoke it’s very constant and you know what your getting, the $6 price tag won’t break the bank either. Box worthy? Personally I think I like the Madura better by PDR but this one is right next to it.

This is a new one for me, recommended by my Mike at my local B and M. This cigar just looks like it’s going to be good, it has a very nice dark wrapper, great first light, excellent smoke and very good flavors to it. I fired this one up for a lunch time smoke and it didn’t disapoint at all. Great flavors as you would expect from a cigar that looks like this one does. It has what I call the sweet maduro tobacco taste to it that I love. This is a very smooth cigar with approx. and hour and 15 minute smoke time. I would suggest you try this one out for sure. I would smoke these again and already picked up a few for the humidor, for only $6 these are a steal.
