Wow! What else could I say? This is one dark wrapper. The name of the cigar says it all. The wrapper is dark black with some dark brown spots to give it some character. The wrapper is smooth to the touch but looks very toothy sitting in my hand.  The smell off the wrapper was sweet with notes of pepper. The cigar had a nice draw with no hard or soft spots on the squeeze test.

1st Third

This cigar puts of enormous amounts of smoke with a nice white ash to go against the dark wrapper. Main flavors I pick up are chocolate and coffee with a very mild spice. The burn is almost perfect all the way round

2nd Third

Here in the second third the flavors stay pretty consistent with some slight nutty flavors coming in going in the background. I know this seems pretty short but there really isn’t much to say.

Final Third

As I lay this cigar down I wonder where the money I spent went. They flavors were nice but stayed the same throughout the entire cigar. There was no complexity and think there are plenty of cheaper options to get the same flavors. When you are paying over 10 dollars for a cigar you expect more of a memorable experience which this was not.
