    It's been a few years since I smoked a Ruination but I have good memories of them.

    The cigar lights well and the first flavors are herbs and some leather.

    About half-way through the flavor profile seems to change, more grassy and nutty with some sweetness in the background.

    I'm getting a lot of nicotine from this cigar. Definitely not one to try before breakfast.

    Going into the final third the herbs and the sweetness are coming back but without the pepper this time. Still, not sure if I'm going to make it till the end - getting a bit queasy here...

    Mostly fatty leather now. A nice cigar but I'm putting it down with still about an inch of life left in this one. Heavy stuff!
