This 7.5×50 stick features a dark brown wrapper with small veins, minor imperfections and stretches, tight seams, a spongy give and soapy aroma. First light reveals a nice easy draw with plenty of medium-full body smoke giving peppery tobacco flavors with a big pepper and spice finish. The first third brings a medium body with creamy oily tobacco flavor, and a bit of spice through the finish but not nearly as much as the first light. it does leave a nice tingle on the lips though. The ash is fairly loose, dropping at just less than an inch. The half way point comes and goes at the 1 hour mark with no changes. Ending at 1:30 where it began to get too warm for my taste, the whole stick proved to be very consistent in flavors and performance. Thank you very much to DiFazioCIgars.com for sending this for review!

This 7.5×50 stick comes wrapped in a very dry and soft squishy light tan leaf, with minimal veins, invisible seams and a slightly soapy aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw giving medium bodied flavors of a rich creamy oily wood, with a thick chewy mouthfeel and long finish. The first third ups the flavors to include a slight sweetness and nuts, also taking it to a medium-full body – very satisfying flavors and quite surprising to me, for a connecticut! The 2nd third drops the wood and brings up the creamy nut flavors. The ash is holding less than an inch at a time. Ending at 1:15 minutes, the last third showed no further changes, proving the cigar to be quite consistent all the way down. Thank you very much to DiFazioCigars.com for providing this sample for review!
This 6.1×52 cigar offers a velvet soft dark brown wrapper with a slight red hue, an even spongy give, invisible seams and minimal veins. The aroma is soft and rich smooth tobacco with chocolate notes while the first light reveals a medium-full peppery tobacco blast with a long finish. 15 min in to the first third the flavors hold steady but increase in power, going to a full body and near full strength. Draw is fantastic, burn is ok. 30 min in at the half way point flavors are still the same, which is fine by me! Smoke output has increased becoming more creamy. Ending at 50 min in with over an inch remaining the strength simply gre too much for me to finsih, making me light headed and sweaty! While not a bad thing, it’s just too much for this reviewer! For those of you that prefer full strength – this is a perfect example to try! Thank you very much to Canimao for sending this sample for review, I greatly appreciate it!

This 6.5×44 stick offers a light tan wrapper with small veins and a thin slightly soft wrapper. The flavor profile was very complex with changes happening every few minutes to the band point.
