A beautiful looking lancero shaped cigar with a juicy, oily, very dark wrapper. Well balanced in the hand and solid to the touch. The draw had a slight resistance but was an effortless cigar to smoke. Once lit, a rich, full aroma with spicy dark chocolate notes filled the air. The burn was slow and even. The draw provided a lot of dense, full-bodied smoke. There was a resistance on the draw, which helped slow down the whole experience but didn’t pose any problems. This is a great cigar to sit back and relax with in an environment that allows you to appreciate the full and rich aroma. White peppery spices developed and built in strength as the cigar was smoked, but never overwhelmed the flavor. It had a nice black pepper taste that was noticeable when retro-haled through the nose. The aroma was outstanding and the flavors were full, rich, and balanced well with the spiciness and medium-full body. Just an outstanding cigar and blend overall.
