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.
