Got my first order from Cigars Daily and thought I’d try this first. Full bodied, my palate is at an early stage but from the pre-light draw I got dark chocolate and cherry. After lighting up got a lot of grass, cedar and a hint of espresso. I smoked this in my garden and the construction was unbelievable. I’m in Ireland and it was very breezy this evening so cant believe the ash held so long. Absolute steal at that price. Thanks Tim!

The flavor notes described from Cigars Daily are spot on. Great flavor with a smooth draw. I watched a review from Tim and he said the draw was tighter than he likes but I thought it was fine. Pretty even burn, needed a touch up in the first third. Very medium bodied. Great smoke output.

I enjoyed this cigar a great deal. It had good flavor and burned evening though the entire stick. Medium body but still very smooth. I will be buying more of this stick.

The first stick tastes great and the burn was pretty even. The draw was was great.
One issue I had was the wrapper was coming apart on the midway. Had to use pectin on multiple occasions. It might have been just this one stick.

This cigar wasn’t for me, nothing about it really stood out for me.

Outweighs it’s price which i really appreciate. Almost lasted me 2 hours! My first Diesel and first barrel aged. It had some nice surprises. My only complaint is it isn’t as complex as it could have been. I would’ve loved either Honduran or Dominican thrown in the mix for some texture. Still a great stick. Spice on throat and tongue, tangy sweetness, bit of a clove nuance, and i’d say the whiskey notes are more in the background and finish. Not sure i’m committed to the concept but can see myself trying another in this genre.

Earth and brown sugary perfection. I would definitely recommend to anyone.
