The Blaze Report

What a great looking cigar.  Heavy pre-light smell to it.  Right away there was full flavor and aroma.  Dominating creamy texture to the smoke, with a nice underlying sweetness.   A medium flavored cigar with a medium body.  Excellent construction with a even burn and nice over-all development.
