    Very beautiful cigar with a silky-smooth, milk chocolate brown wrapper.

    I'm sure there's a technical term for milk chocolate brown - like colorado claro or something - but not sure which one...

    The draw is fine but the burn is all over the place. Given that most flavors are in the wrapper, this is not a good thing.

    The peppery flavors are very subtle but they're definitely there, lingering in the distance.

    The burn is really an issue now. The cigar is asymmetrically rolled and is now completely clogged on one side. Gives off a dirty, fishy flavor. Time for some unclogging and purging...

    The repairs seem to have worked, at least I'm drawing some smoke again.
