Panelist #1 All samples of this cigar were wonderful. This is a perfect smoke at the end of a long day at the office.
98 Superior
Panelist #2 The cigar was packed with flavor and had near perfect construction. If I were looking for a new staple, this would be it!
96 Superior
Panelist #3 I feel like this cigar was missing something. Possibly a slight touch of sweetness would have helped balance it.
90 Very Good

Panelist #1 Quite mild. Went well with some strong, black Sumatran coffee to give some kick. I would highly recommend this one.
9.5 Excellent
Panelist #2 Overall, this smoke was a treat. Nice complexity with great flavors. A 50-minute escape that I look forward to again.
9.3 Excellent
Panelist #3 Good strong flavor goes well with desert or morning coffee. When in the mood for a quick cigar, this one fits the bill.
9.5 Excellent

Panelist #1 I can't wait to pick up a box of these. They're a great and delicious smoke from head to foot.
9.4 EXCELLENT
Panelist #2 I did not try to pair this cigar with anything... it's almost perfect, standing on its own all the way.
9.4 EXCELLENT
Panelist #3 A good late afternoon cigar with your favorite micro brew. Keep a second one on hand for the spice!
9.2 EXCELLENT
Panelist #4 A good Sunday afternoon cigar with your good friends. It goes great with Kentucky bourbon.
9.0 VERY GOOD

Panelist #1 This stick just screams out that it should be accompanied by sips of Myers' dark rum on the rocks.
8.8 VERY GOOD
Panelist #2 The taste is too intense for me to smoke it regularly, but I can see it working well after a long day.
8.8 VERY GOOD
Panelist #3 A glass of Appleton Gold while sitting next to the fireplace (or radiator) seals the deal here.
9.1 EXCELLENT
Panelist #4 This cigar paired well with a single malt scotch. A good cigar towards the end of the day.
9.1 EXCELLENT
