The initial appearance of the cigar is quite visually and physically appealing. It has nice veins and a rustic looking feel to it. It is very aromatic and smells of chocolate and coffee beans.
At first light the cigar is bursting with a sweet coffee flavour with notes of chocolate. It is medium bodied and the sweet flavours do not drown out the natural tobacco flavour.
It is a relatively fast burner and the draw comes fairly easily. The sweet dessert like flavours make it difficult not to smoke too quickly.
Up until the halfway burn point, the construction is seamless. The stick boasts a decent sized ash as well, with a good smoke output.
The last third of the cigar sees the natural, earthier tobacco flavours start to grow in strength and slightly overpower the sweetness.
I would give the cigar a solid 7/10. It is a great smoke for beginners as it is not too strong. I have no real legitimate complaints, although I think that I would have personally enjoyed it more if the tobacco flavours were stronger during the first two thirds of the smoke (although this is just personal preference; I like strong, full-bodied cigars. But I enjoy cigars of every shape, size, and flavour).
