Review: Stogie Guys
To me, the blend was just about perfect. The flavors mixed finely, some just touching the tongue (as with a citrus), while others would linger a while (the case with nuttiness). Smoking slowly and enjoying a cup of coffee proved just the right touches.
Review: Cigar Aficionado
There is a lot more body than its light, claro wrapper suggests. It's earthy and toasty with touches of espresso and baking spices that leave a nutty aftertaste.

Review: Stogie Guys
You’d be hard-pressed to find a better constructed cigar, from the sharp burn to the excellent draw. Two standout components are massive smoke production and a fine, lingering finish to treat the palate.
