    I've reviewed this cigar before on Twitter, so I figured why not add a review to the database?

    It starts with a very strong cedar taste but there is also a pleasant sweet flavor.

    The burn is somewhat irregular and the ash a bit flaky. Not really a problem, just a bit messy.

    Halfway through the draw becomes markedly lighter as the cigar appears to be packed more lightly than before.

    The lighter draw requires more effort to keep the cigar going in the final third and makes it harder to make out the flavors. Pity.
