Cigar No. 147
“Regrettably I was unable to give this a fair shot, but the cigar looked great, had awesome prelight notes, and started strong for the few minutes I could smoke it. However, at this time, I can’t give a formal opinion or recommendation. Fortunately, I have this blend in a different vitola to review, so I will get a chance to showcase it again.”
Cigar No. 148
“I enjoyed this cigar quite a bit. The musty earth, at times, was a bit too forward, but there was always something else there to add some depth. There were also some very unique flavors like the salted hard pretzel and burnt vanilla. I also enjoyed all the creaminess and sweetness that balanced some of the savory, earthy, and peppery flavors throughout. The performance was impeccable as well. I would smoke this cigar again and think it is recommendable. Upon the reveal, I am quite impressed with what this cigar was and also think this was a really neat cigar to include in this month's pack! It appears I was correct on the filler, but off on the wrapper, and maybe the binder.”
