    There's not a lot I could find about this cigar, seems to be mostly available in North-West European countries.

    Highly original cigar band, made of brass by the looks of it. Not sure how to repurpose it, if they had dented one edge, you could use it as a cigar stand.

    The draw is a bit tight and I'm not getting as much smoke as I would like, I'm afraid it's plugged.

    I've removed the plug which improved the flavors but the draw remains tight.

    Overall a nice cigar with solid flavors. Pity about the tight roll which made me suck on it rather than just smoke it.
