Panelist #1 This cigar tastes expensive. If it is, spend the money, it is well worth it. Just a wonderful treat.
9.4 EXCELLENT
Panelist #2 Good any time of day, with any drink, any food, any mood. Also good for any level of smoker.
9.0 VERY GOOD
Panelist #3 I think I could enjoy this as a midday cigar, or perhaps out on the golf course with a refreshing beer.
9.1 EXCELLENT
Panelist #4 In the morning or before bed, this is a good cigar no matter what the clock says. Enjoy it slowly.

Panelist #1 Good afternoon snack cigar. Better if during your afternoon you happen to find a beer in your hand with it.
9.1 VERY GOOD
Panelist #2 A good light smoke. Not too overpowering in any sense and would blend well with any meal.
8.9 VERY GOOD
Panelist #3 The cigar started out light, got strong and then became a groin kick of a smoke.
9.0 VERY GOOD
Panelist #4 Very strong for my tastes, but an excellent cigar for those who like 'em strong. I would have it alone.

Panelist #1 This cigar burned well for over an hour of pleasure. I would suggest them regardless of the cost.
9.5 EXCELLENT
Panelist #2 Matched well with a tall glass of iced tea. Would go great with a Guinness and steak.
9.2 EXCELLENT
Panelist #3 The effort I had to put into the draw was not worth the reward I got in the cigar's flavor.
8.6 VERY GOOD
Panelist #4 This was a bear of cigar! You'll need a lot of time to finish it, but it is worth the effort. A great cigar.

Panelist #1 Good cigar for after work with a good single malt scotch. I really liked this cigar.
9.6 SUPERIOR
Panelist #2 This is really a fine cigar. Great body, a joy and pleasure to smoke, honors the great history of cigar making.
9.5 EXCELLENT
Panelist #3 This is no powerhouse, very mild, smooth with a lot of smoke. I would break in a friend with this cigar.
9.0 VERY GOOD
Panelist #4 I would not recommend this cigar nor would I smoke it again in the future. I just did not like this cigar.

Panelist #1 A very good smoke as is, but this would be even better if it were aged for a few more months.
9.3 EXCELLENT
Panelist #2 This was a decent smoke to have on the patio with a morning cup of coffee. But keep your lighter nearby.
8.1 GOOD
Panelist #3 A little too subdued for my tastes, the smoke itself though was pungent and full of body.
8.0 GOOD
Panelist #4 Its size makes it good for a midday smoke break, or a good one to light up after the front nine.
8.5 GOOD

Panelist #1 Great cigar. Burns very evenly and really pops in the beginning. Not a cigar for a novice.
9.8 SUPERIOR
Panelist #2 A great cigar to take on a camping trip with the boys. The bold flavors went well with a strong espresso.
9.6 SUPERIOR
Panelist #3 I would be inclined to buy a few and likely hide them from my friends. Just a delightful smoke.
9.3 EXCELLENT
Panelist #4 I paired this with a full-bodied merlot after dinner, and it was an ideal match. Go get yourself one.
9.3 EXCELLENT

Wrapper:

Panelist #1 Cigar was pleasant but not outstanding from start to finish, the mark of a good consistent smoke.
9.2 EXCELLENT
Panelist #2 Absolutely going on my Christmas wish list - after I learn its name. This is not a quick smoke.
9.5 EXCELLENT
Panelist #3 A good smoke to close out a round of golf with. This cigar was nearly flawless.
9.4 EXCELLENT
Panelist #4 Don't light this unless you have a good hour to kill. I didn't like the spicy aftertaste though.
9.0 VERY GOOD

Panelist #1 Very intense; took some effort and a couple of drinks to get through it all. But I could see others enjoying it.
9.0 VERY GOOD
Panelist #2 Great looking, but just too mild for my tastes. Good for a novice though. Someone just starting on the path.
8.5 GOOD
Panelist #3 Consistent smoke throughout. I would give one to a friend. Not outstanding though, very average.
8.9 VERY GOOD
Panelist #4 A very pretty cigar; but that's where it ends for me. I need an assertive cigar and this is not it.
8.7 VERY GOOD

Wrapper:

Panelist #1 Good cigar with lots of flavor, very much an outdoor cigar rather than an indoor smoke.
9.2 EXCELLENT
Panelist #2 Great cigar for a hunting or fishing trip with the fellas, not to be wasted in your living room.
9.2 EXCELLENT
Panelist #3 Very enjoyable. I would buy them and suggest them to my friends who like a mild to medium cigar.
9.4 EXCELLENT
Panelist #4 I had one cigar outside and one inside and liked the one outside better. I don't know why that is.
9.1 EXCELLENT
