I've been on my "cigar journey" for only two years, and am still very much on the lower end of the learning curve, but I write this because I was so completely impressed by this cigar and now recommend it to anyone who will listen, not so much because I think I know of what and how to say to describe my experiences!
I tried cigars in the $5-$25 range from many outstanding makers, but nothing truly captured me until, entirely by accident, I was directed to this cigar (a label I never heard of before) by a discerning cigar shop owner in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
I never imagined I could enjoy a cigar so fully and was completely won over after only few puffs.
I do not know the cigar aficionado lingo very well but, to me, the cigar tastes like a mouthful of fresh, rich, old fashioned rye bread sprinkled with freshly ground peppercorns!
The tase/smell that lingers in the nose and the mouth is also slightly astringent and remains peppery, without becoming noxious or overwhelming; the cigar opens up to a medium-full body, a smooth draw and remains highly consistent throughout.
The "chisel" construction, I believe, is paramount for a heightened experience, since I've had same cigar in a corona, with a less intense and focused smoking sensation, although the same mix is apparent.
Given the price (btw, lowest at BCP than anywhere else I've checked) and availability (again, uninterrupted here, unlike several other major distributors), I would without reservation recommend this as a fantastic, daily smoke!
