My initial instinct gave this cigar 3 stars but I had to address other things besides my personal disappointment on the flavor and power.
The cigar was very well constructed. The cap was meticulously fitted with as close to zero visible seam as possible. It smoked very nicely with a clean draw.
All of these construction praises weren't enough to distract me long enough from realizing there was no real substance to the product. There was a little cocoa here and there, but nothing overpowering nor anyting that hung out long enough to be categorized.
Ok, I'll compromise - 3.5 stars
