A little slow going at first in terms of flavors, but after 1/4 way in, the flavors starting jumping out. Short finish, great stick for the money. My only problem was that the construction of the stick was terrible. Wrapper started unraveling at the head after 1 or 2 draws and started to bust open at the foot 1/3 of the way in. Maybe I got a dud? Smoking today (4/11/15); purchased in Feb. Stored in my humi with cello on.
Great stick! Draw, burn, flavor all top shelf. LOTS of thick smoke. I was a little lightheaded, haven't had that in a while. Burns for and hour +. This one is a winner, wish they came in boxes, thank you CI.
Started out kinda rough, but a1/4 way in it turned real smooth, really good flavor and just a great Connecticut wrapper. Love this smoke.
BLOWN AWAY is an understatement. Thanks CI, for making a great smoke. This fine stick has everything a great cigar should: fine draw and smooth taste. I feel like I just got hit with a saiga 12 with a drum magazine boom!!! .... If your looking for a great smoke that will make you forget your day, this is it.
Nice, slow burning cigar. Description is true to taste. Reminds me of a slightly milder Diesel. Thumbs up.
This cigar lived up to the advertising-well worth it!! It was so good I was sad when it was done!!!
