Price: $7.50

Environment:
Temperature: 18 degrees

Humidity: 75%
Wind: N/A

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

Paired with: Iced coffee

A medium roughness, toothy wrapper with one very big vein that ran almost the entire length and very visible seams.

A short cap, so a little dicey with the guillotine cutter. Soft bunch, and a perfect pre-light draw with a taste of mild woodiness.

Razor sharp burn the entire length, flat coal, and a flakey, mottled grey ash.

Perfect draw, smooth, cool smoke, and a strong, fragrant aroma of floral, wood and plain tobacco.

Generous richness, body, perfectly balanced flavors of woodiness, floral and light leather, and a mild strength.

Ample aftertaste/finish strength of a brief length, and consisting of woody, floral and light leather notes.

Summary Comments:
Of great character, even though the final score of 91 out of 100 only ranks “very good" on the scale. This is directly due to losing 5 points in the appearance/construction category. If not for that, it would have scored at least several points higher and the ranking would have better reflected the overall aspects and character of this cigar.
