Overall:  Overall a medium plus.  It starts off fairly light, but the strength builds as you smoke it.  The construction of the cigar was great, the burn needed a few touch ups as it was burning, but this cigar was a prerelease from Las Vegas IPCPR and it may have been because of the dry air in that area.  The flavors are great and well balanced.

Overall:  This is a bold cigar, not for the faint of heart. Full strength, full bodied, yet smooth. The burn was straight, and the ash held well. Not incredibly complex but that’s not a negative.
