Maduro wrapper with a slight sheen of oils. The construction looks perfect. This should be a good cigar. I am having Maker’s Mark and a Cherry Coke with it.

My initial impression is that this is a decent cigar. I’m getting a very earthy flavor, almost like a grassy sweetness. There is also a bitterness to this cigar. The draw is a little too tight for my liking.
Very poor burn. Little over an inch in and I’m not liking it at all. In addition to the bitterness there’s now a sourness as well.
Burning quickly and wildly. What flavors there are in this cigar I do not like. And there aren’t that many flavors here to warrant a mention. Medium bodied.
I almost always finish a cigar. Things can change from the beginning to the end of a cigar. So, unless the cigar is just plain awful, I will give it the benefit of the doubt and finish it. I dislike this cigar so much that I cannot finish it.
