this cigar i found to be quite enjoyable. my only complaint is that the flavor in my opinion differed between each but in the sense of they differed by 2 flavors if that makes sense. It may be because of my pallet but i cant be positive. i normally use wood matches to light but with this cigar i preferred a torch. as far as flavor goes my ill experienced description would be- the classic flavor of a dark bodied cigar without that acidy aftertaste and notes of wood and white pepper. A deffinate keeper in my book.
