    Lovely cigar. I found it very smooth, nutty and mild in spice. Very good stick for a evening with friends. Definitely the cigar you want in your collection.

  2. Andrew Reynolds (verified owner)

    The burn has a razor sharp white ash, looks great. The 1st third has black coffee notes with oak. I got black coffee on the finish. A cream creeps in and the 2nd third saw a milk chocolate come in as the coffee dies down. The final third surprised me as I get notes of mint which were very refreshing. The coffee comes back but not as strong, more of a roast coffee.
    I smoked the robusto and have to say this was an incredible flavoursome cigar.
