    The flavors in this cigar are pretty bold, none of that mild and subtle crap going on.

    Hard to get the cigar band off. Due to the unusual shape, the band touches the the burn line but the glued part in the middle is not yet warm enough. Big hole in the wrapper *$&$%#

    The advantage of bold flavors is that you can't miss the transitions. The first part was mainly herbs and some wood, then it turned more earthy and leathery, now it roasted and sweet flavors.

    The third part is absolutely fabulous. Mainly sweet, nutty flavors but also bursts of leather and cream.
