Overall I found this cigar to be pretty good. It had some performance issues, but that happens, and I did not get any indication that it impacted the flavors. The flavor profile was pretty linear, with no major changes. I really enjoyed the mint chocolate chip note in the first third, and the sweet mint that carried through the cigar. The sweetness balanced the earth, wood, and pepper nicely. The only part of the profile that I was not a fan of was the oiliness. That is something that in certain circumstances I enjoy, and in others I do not prefer. It’s one of those things that I find there to be a time and place for and this moment wasn’t it. That being said, it was not off-putting by any means, and would not stop me from revisiting this cigar. Something worth noting is that I did not realize this was a Honduran puro until after I smoked it and took my notes. Once I found out that it was, it actually made me appreciate the cigar more because I would not have guessed it to be all Honduran. I am hit or miss on Honduran tobacco, and I found this cigar to be a unique flavor experience given the origin of the tobacco, at least for my palate.”
