Box: Sold in 12 count boxes.
Availability: Limited to 340 boxes (4080 cigars).
Size: 4×48, Petit Robusto.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, silky smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Fairly firm and even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Hay.
1st third: Starts with a rich dark chocolate but with a creamy foamed milk sweetness combined with a citrus peel, black pepper and oakwood.
2nd third: Keeps consistently the same.
Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm and stable gray ash.
Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue with a light draw.
3rd third: Gets a little spicier towards the end while still retaining the previous flavours.

Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. Left me wanting more good thing it comes in bigger sizes too. Enjoyable long aftertaste.
