The draw is pretty good, if a little too easy for me on a cigar of this size. Dry aroma is wonderful. There are suggestions of moderate coffee and light cloves with a pleasing mild, dry
cedar background. Very tasty. Can edge toward the bitter end of the spectrum, but this never became annoying.
The wrapper is probably Cameroon, although here I think it is mostly detectable in the fairly complex finish. A good amount of nicotine, but not too strong-- satisfying. Later in the smoke, the character changes and becomes a tad liquorice. This is an unusual note and some people will probably love it.
The construction is good, a little uneven. The wrapper won't be winning any beauty contests-- more of a "certificate of participation" contestant, in the show but not in the running. My wrapper was mostly smooth with some small veins, and slightly oily.
This is a light to medium bodied cigar that smoked well to the end. Robustos are just never my favorite size for some reason, but I certainly enjoyed this-- though I was happy I didn't have too many of them, as the character simply wasn't in line with my preferences.
This would be an excellent smoke with a lighter cognac, good Irish whiskey, or perhaps calvados. It is priced well, but wasn't exactly my cup of tea at the end of the day.
