Wow what can I say?
An excellent little cigar! In my rush to order I didn't really look at reviews and sizes etc and it was a bit of a shock seeing a shorter cigar than what I'm used to but I will be ordering more!
Took my dog for a walk while enjoying this and it lasted just over an hour, the burn was even all the way down and the ash didn't drop until well over half way.
Upon lighting I got quite a pleasant chocolate punch, amongst other aromas and flavours I tasted wood, pepper and 3/4s down it got very creamy with a bit of spice.
These little beauties will definitely be on my top list for walking the dog or reading a book with a good strong coffee

Big fan cohiba of all varieties. Real enjoyed maduro 5 dark maduro richness becoming smoke of choice cohiba doing their usual top draw job. Amazing draw taste from first toasting and through out. Chocolate spicy with no bitterness razor sharp burn from start to finger burning nub finish. Cohiba little expensive for everyday smoke but defo the stick to try on a monthly basis. Herfing bliss

Cover me in chocolate and bite me on the behind! This is a cracking smoke! Lovely flavours with caramel coming through strongly. They have packed some serious flavour into this small stick. It smokes very smoothly and the ash stayed on for ages. Well worth the cost IMO.

I purchased this after reading a review in the Cigar Scene monthly magazine. Initially I enjoyed it thoroughly with a nice aroma and a very good construction along with a lasting ash. I enjoyed this with a couple of cups of black Italian coffee. The flavours of wood, pepper and spices on the initial draw followed by a slightly bitter aftertaste of dark chocolate/cocoa. However, just after half way down the cigar became very bitter and sour. It was a real turn for the worse and I wanted to make sure it wasn't just me so I handed the cigar to my dad (he took a draw at the start to taste it) and he was shocked at how the cigar had changed flavour so quickly. At this price I feel like I paid £13 for half a cigar (a bit pricey). Overall I feel a bit disappointed that I had to give up, but the experience became simply unpleasant.

Have had two of these now, both good smokes, at the stronger end of the flavour scale. On the last one with a glass of decent port I didn't want it to finish. But have to say I still might not buy another as after exploring the cigar market a bit more I feel you are paying too much for the brand, and similar quality is available for significantly less. If you're not watching the pennies I'd recommend this fully, if you are I would suggest looking at the similar El Credito exquisitos or Alec Bradly black market punk, or ideally trying all three and deciding on your favourite.
