 Wrapper: Proprietary

Binder: Proprietary

Filler: Proprietary

Vitola (Size): 6” x 54

 Final Thoughts:

Fairly complex with a medium-full body.  Effortless al the way to the nub with a lot of up front flavors with an overall spices character.  Gradually build in body with a full and long finish.  Plenty of sweetness to the smoke and an creamy character.  Consistent flavor profile with an incredible smooth draw giving a perfect amount of balance.
