I'd like to dedicate this cigar review to the immortal words of JFK, "I am a jelly donut."*

OK. Coconut (shell, flesh, milk, all of it), other pale nuttinesses, white pepper overtones mature and gather into a roasted then toasted cedar earthiness.  High undertones of a driving sweet cream & cocoa butter white chocolate deepen thru the 1/2 then drop off into a more rigid and wooden 2/2. Underbelly is a sunlit hay bit of earth which morphs into an eventual grittier barnyard.

Burns on a straight 'nuff line with only a single indiscretion warranting a light re-touch. Burns also at a slow calm pace. Draws excellently if not supremely well. Ash could grow all day, but you may not be able to see it doing-so thru the voluminous billows of white smoke.
