This cigar was covered with a dark and hearty looking wrapper with a pungent pre-light smell. There was a slight resistance on an overall smooth draw. An excellent burn held on to a light gray ash. There was a lot of spiciness on the palate and in the aroma with a noticeably sweet undertone. The cigar had a full aroma and a lot of tangy sweet and spicy flavors with a fairly light to medium body.
