Visual Inspection: The cigar wrapper is dark and extremely attractive. Slightly rustic in appearance, but not sloppy. Perfect construction. Wrapped in cedar which displays prominently the cigar's name.

Cold Draw: earthiness, coffee and chocolate overtone, and a creamy dulce de leche sweetness on the finish.

First Third: On first light, this cigar is a pepper bomb. To be completely honest it is slightly intimidating, but that intimidation subsides quickly as the cigar warms up. I will say this early in this review- This cigar is a masterpiece. The cigar produces very thick creamy smoke, which coats the mouth in an extremely pleasant way. That heavy spice which met us at first light, gave way to a strong earthy note which is supported by the pepper. A chocolate sweetness also presents itself for the first time here in the first third.

Second Third: The second third takes off with a very noticeable transition in flavors for this wonderful cigar. The sweetness that first showed its head in the first third develops into one of the primary flavors, but not in a way that subtracts from the full body, earthy, and peppery experiences that the cigar started with. The burn, up to this point, is clean, with no issues- Evidence that the cigar is constructed extraordinarily well. The wrapper leaf has stayed in place and shows no signs of unraveling. 

Final Third: The final third shows another big transition, and the most unique of the cigar. All I can say is black coffee. The cream, earth, and pepper, playing second fiddle to an extremely full black coffee flavor is wonderful.  I attribute this change to the torpedoing that exists on the head of this cigar. The smoke production is still big, the burn still perfect.

Final Thoughts: This cigar, section by section, is not much different from other cigars on the market, but what makes this cigar a masterpiece is, as I indicated above,  the way that it transitions. It is extraordinarily complex, and unique in the way that it delivers its flavors, and in the journey that it takes you on.
