It's hard to beat that price point!

The cigar is a sharp box press.

After cutting the cap the test draw was very good. The initial flavors were sweet cedar, graham cracker, dry wood, and earthiness. There was a white pepper rated at a 7. I had several of these previously and I must urge you to have a clean palate when smoking this cigar to get the best flavors.

About one inch in you can add a sweet marshmallow type flavor which is attached to the sweet cedar and graham cracker. The cigar is mild to medium bodied at this point. The finish has some marshmallow cream and a touch of dry wood. There is a little lingering white pepper also.

With about 2 1/2 inches remaining you still have sweet cedar with subtle marshmallow and graham cracker. There are more roasted nuts and dry wood with a touch of underlying earthiness. The cigar is now medium bodied. The finish has some roasted nuts and sweet cream. The white pepper still lingers on the palate.

The cigar ended with sweet cedar, subtle marshmallow and graham cracker, with plenty of dry wood and roasted nuts. The cigar ended at medium to full bodied. It amped up as it burned. The finish is about the same; roasted nuts and cream. The pepper topped out at a 7.5 on the front end and there was a nice amount on the finish. If you have a clean palate you will get these flavors and should find this to be a good cigar. For the price point it's a not brainer; you have to try it!

Score: 89
