Setting: My regular spot in the little, outdoor smoke shack.

Paired with: Iced coffee

A medium smoothness, somewhat veiny wrapper with invisible seams and an uneven, medium smoothness head/cap. Overall, an attractive looking cigar.

A firm bunch and perfect cold draw, with no discernable flavor.

An even burn throughout the length, flat coal, and mottled grey, typical strength ash.

Excellent smoke volume, with a smooth, cool character and faint, subtle, floral aroma.

Ample richness, medium body, mild strength, and perfect balance and ample flavors of earth, wood, and some floral hints.

Finish/aftertaste of modest strength flavors of wood and light floral notes, and brief in length.

Overall character was excellent, with a great, final score of 93 out of 100.

A very respectable score, and while milder on flavor strength, it was far from lacking in richness and had nice, perfectly balanced, flavors and an aftertaste that didn’t linger too long on the palate, coating it up and requiring a rinse. In fact, this cigar could easily be smoked without any kind of beverage to clear the palate for its entire length.

I really enjoyed this cigar, and will be picking up a fiver in the future for when I want something with excellent taste, but is nice and mellow. Wouldn’t hesitate a bit to recommend this to a seasoned smoker friend as well as a new smoker.
