This is a fairly dark cigar. It has a good amount of oils and bumps. Other than the bumps this seems like a well made cigar. For this cigar I am drinking some Makers Mark with some water.

Decent construction – there are a couple of stretch marks on the cigar which makes me worry about how well the cigar will draw because, if a cigar is rolled too tightly there is an increased chance that the draw will be tight. There are also some raised veins and the color of the cigar is medium brown.

Alright, this is a fairly expensive cigar so it better be good!
Looks like a very well made cigar and it has a good amount of oils. There really isn’t anything not to like about the way this thing looks. Perfect.
Full disclosure: Usually I drink Wild Turkey and a Cherry Coke when I smoke a cigar. Tonight, I am drinking a Ricardo’s Red Rocket Ale from Bear Republic. I went to BevMo looking to see how large their selection of whiskey is nowadays, which is paltry, and bought a six pack of Bear Republic beer. The flavors of this beer are fairly strong (supposedly it got 95 points from some group though).
Now onto the cigar!
