This is a nice Cuban cigar. Excellent construction, very nice draw. The cigar looks flawless. It had just the right amount of filler leaf to give it a great draw without being too hard. It burned nice and evenly all throughout. The flavor was more mild than I expected. It had spice notes, leather, earthy notes, but not any cocoa that I noticed. The first 1/3 of the cigar had nice flavor, then it went fairly bland, but the last 1/3 picked up the flavor again. Overall I would have preferred a more robust flavor. This one had nice subtle notes and it didn't get harsh, but it didn't win me over. It's a nice cigar but definitely not my favorite.
