As far as appearances go, if the cigar is medium to medium dark in color it has good appearance. The lighter wrappers do not appeal to me. So for those of you that like lighter colored wrappers, I rate all cigars at a 3 star to be fair. If I have flavor all the way to the nub, I give 5 stars. From there I fine tune my ratings to construction. If the cap doesn't turn into leaves unraveling, despite a great cut and the body and foot burn evenly in controlled conditions, I'm happy, happy, happy! So now we are down to "Draw/Burn" & "Complexity". Draw/Burn is critical so that your mouth muscles are not sore the next day. Complexity critical to enjoyment and surprise. So Ladies and Gents, from start to finish (careful not to burn my fingers at finish), I enjoyed a very flavorful and complex cigar, that allowed me to RELAX and enjoy it like one should. It's on my wish list due to it's predicted limited supply. I cannot find it at local shops in Indianapolis. Medium-Full Cigar well worth the cost per cigar!!
