What they have to say about the cigar:

This is one of the bolder Acid’s you will find. As with most of these, you will have a unique experience from each cigar, but this guy is definitely a great entry into “real” cigars for those that are looking to get into smoking.  Like most in the gold label line, this will have a bit of an issue with their being tar buildup, or “enhanced flavor” toward the 2nd third, which may be offputting to newbies.  Since I recommend most newbies stop at the 2nd third, this, again, makes this a great starter.  For those of us who have smoked a bunch of cigars, this is more of a dessert type cigar.  If you think of wine, this is a lot like an ice wine, syrupy-sweet and full of flavor. You’ll find these at around $6 each.

What they have to say about the cigar:

Like its older and larger cousin, the Nefasto, this is the dark and dirty of the Acid line.  A Maduro wrapper, and TONS of flavor, the only problem here is that it doesn’t last very long for a normal smoker.  If you’ve not had an Acid, and you smoke “good” cigars, this would be a good entry point for you- dark, bold and just lovely all around.  Its diminutive size is perfect to get a taste for what the red line of Acids is all about and could prove that you don’t like them, or that you love them more and more.  This is NOT a beginner cigar, and those who are new to smoking should avoid this guy until they get more seasoning under their belt.  This should run you about $6
