Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. Out of the Villa Casdagli line up this is the friendliest of cigars, not over powering nor is it to docile just a middle of the road complexity and strength. It was enjoyable but I was missing that Casdagli little extra in the blend.

Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.
