This 4.5×52 stick has been a staple suggestion by myself and other CO Fans given it’s extremely low price point. It’s a mixed filler cigar that is certainly worth far more than it’s going rate IMO. It features a dark tan firmly packed slightly toothy wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, large double cap and rich barnyard aroma. First light reveals a slightly snug draw putting off good medium bodied smoke with a smooth, creamy sweet wood with a mellow fairly short clean finish of the same. The first third burns very quickly but evenly, bringing a complex mix of sweet creamy coffee followed by a pepper and cinnamon kick. Hitting the 1/2 way point at a quick 20 minutes, a cocoa joins the draw while the finish gets longer. Ending at 45 minutes where the nub got too hot for my taste, the last third kept the same profile but brought the body down to a mild-medium.
