Initial taste - Dry cedar and spice.
First third - Mineral, dry cedar and pepper spice.
Second third -Pepper, toasted leather followed by cedar wood and mineral notes.
Last third - Pepper spice continues, toasty leather, slight bitter mineral and cedar notes. Long finish of pepper spice and leather.
Construction - Attractive brown wrapper with a nice silky sheen and very well made cap.
Burn - Straight burn with a dark gray colored solid ash that held on nicely.
Draw - Perfect draw with plenty of smoke.
I liked this cigar and was surprised how well the balance and complexity was. I really enjoyed the toasty leather flavors that I was detecting along with the peppery spice. MSRP for this size is $3.75 which makes this an ideal everyday smoke. I would suggest midday on to smoke this cigar as it is medium to full bodied. I would have to give this a recommend to try for yourself.
