Upon lighting the cigar, I was greeted with a nice aromatic smoke. The initial flavors of the stick were a toasty bread flavor with a nice subtle spice behind it on the palate and on the retro. These flavors remained pretty constant through the first half of the stick with a little bitterness and tangy flavor going in and out around it. The construction seemed pretty solid with the draw having a slight resistance which is nice, and the smoke production being A to A+. The burn was decent. It was slightly wavy however, it was also slightly windy outside so I chalked it up to that, and it never really needed to be touched up. The ash would hold for aboud 2 to 2 1/2" segments.
