The cigar is looking good, but won't win a beauty prize. Hand-rolled since 2002, its wrapper has a nice brown color.
Before lighting up
The wrapper smells of cedar, pepper, hay and dark chocolate.
Upon cutting the cap, the draw is good, while slightly on the tight side. The pre light draw gives lots of pepper on the lips, and some strong aromas on the palate, wood and coffee. Once lit, the cigar burns well, without any issues.
The first third of the cigar is rather powerful, strong and clean tobacco. The smoke is powerful in strength too; however, we can still perceive some creaminess and some notes of fruits, honey and wood. The flavors are reminiscent of a H Upmann Half Coronas at this stage.
In the middle third, the strength mellows just a bit, but remains quite powerful overall. It is also creamier, sweeter, and spicier. There are also notes of hay and grass.
In the final third, the flavor profile remains similar, but the strength increases again, and there is a lot of pepper too.
In summary, it is a great cigar for aficionados of strong cigar with pure tobacco taste.

A great smoke
- I rate these little gems very highly. Cultured, yet with a good kick to remind you this is strong leaf. A great smoke for when you want 45 mins of pleasure.
I love smoking this tobacco in the morning drinking a black coffee.
A fast smoke of medium and aromatic taste
- very good cigar.
