I have smoked this cigar before and was impressed with the full smoke and rich flavors. This time around I had some difficulties with my humidor which resulted in some cracking and a difficult pull in the beginning. However, after a few minutes the draw was easy and great plums of smoke filled the air.

It's not a long smoke but I did taste some flavors in the transition such as coffee and spice. It started to get hot and harsh near the end so I had to give it up before I really wanted to. I believe it's time to invest in a new humidor.
