5 out of 5
This was probably my 20th and 25th cigars after taking up the hobby in earnest.
Pre-light was leather and sweet tobacco. I cut it and toasted. The first third gave me nuts and leather; no pepper. Good light, draw, and ash; a razor burn. Pleasant wood flavors coming up into the first inch. On the mild side of mild-medium, but a good finish; heck even the smoke off the cigar between puffs is pleasant. Second third brought hints of pepper coming in, along with a nice toastiness. Final third adds a bit of cedar to the mix, near as I can tell. A very pleasant stick. It's weird but I keep lipping the head because it's so tasty! I nubbed it good.
