A very rich looking, slightly oily dark wrapper. Construction was solid with barely visible seams, a well applied cap, and no soft spots along the barrel.
Smoking Characteristics: 20/20
A very easy draw which rewards you with an abundant amount of smoke. The burn line remained perfectly even throughout and no touch ups or delights were needed. The draw remained easy and cool all the way down to a nub.
Flavor and Aroma: 30/35
Prelight aroma was of tea with some slight wet grass. After lighting flavors of wood and a peppery spice came through. Into the second third the spice took on an almost peppermint like spice and a very subtle sweetness was discernible.
Overall Summary: 30/35
Very solid construction couple with consistent flavors throughout the smoke made this a most enjoyable smoke.
