First off, this is a nice looking cigar. Not too many veins or color changes, pretty consistent throughout. I also really like the band. The colors work well together. On the band is the year 1918. I'm not sure what that stands for, but it was the year that World War I ended, so maybe?

I was a little concerned pre light because it felt a little tight on the outside. However, I lucked out. After the cut, I tested the draw and it seemed fine. I sparked it with my Ronson, and away we go.

I loved the construction on this guy. The burn was just about perfect, except for it going out once at about the 55 minute mark. After the relight, I experienced no issues.

As far as taste goes, I would classify this as a mild-medium smoke. I could detect the sweetness of the smoke, and it was very smooth. I would be hard-pressed to find a similar smoke. I paired this with an Imperial stout which may have not been the best choice. The stout was very heavy at 9% alcohol, and I think it would have gone better with a lighter drink like a Belgian white or a good lager.

In closing, this is a good cigar. I'm not too sure if it fits into my flavor profile or not, but I would easily suggest that you guys try it if you have not. I'm not too sure about MSRP, so I really cannot comment on that, but I would say about $7 or $8 would be a pretty decent deal. Give this one a try if you can.
