What they have to say about the cigar:
I was prepared to not like this cigar. I had my doubts, to say the least. At first retrohale, (yes, I actually do that) it was peppery. Ok, I thought, I have had some that were like that- like the Joya Black. But let’s see if it actually holds up on lighting, shall we?
Oh mama did it ever.
The flavor was on-point. Spicy, peppery, and not just at the first light either- the whole way through. This is the kind of cigar I would get for someone who says “I like cigars that are strong.” It’s one I would get myself to be honest, and I am glad that I did. The specific size I had was a baby and I would love to try the super Gordo (hence my name and all that) which is a nice 5.7″ x 66. Yep, that’s a nice hour or so smoke right there!
This will not be a wallet-breaker either. At around 8 bucks or so, you’ll be just fine.
