Spicy from the get go...peppery spice on my lips, even during light-up! Superb construction makes for a nice even burn, takes a v-cut exceptionally well, with a nice robust draw. Pretty toothy and dark (ligero) wrapper, with a firm nicely rolled feel in your hand. Flavorful, lots of charred wood and espresso richness, that changes throughout the smoke. Overall, a heavily peppered cigar that lingers on the lips and tongue. Definitely suggest pairing with a nice drink that would compliment the complexity, perhaps a nice glass of Elijah Woods (I'll have to give that a try the next time around).
