NOTES:
Growing up, I appreciated my dad's cigars even more than I appreciated his Juggs magazines. Maybe that's hindsight. Nevertheless: overtones of creamy sweet citrus. Let's say grapefruit. Cedar. Let's say the cream toasts lightly via progression.

This is inherent in a natty 'baccy core. Outliers &/or undertones are white pepper (very-so thru the nose), diner joe, cashew. Further adrift is a hay golden earthiness with clay hints. 

Well-balanced w/ subtle complexities & cushioned nuances. Finishes sweetly with a pale kick. Straight-forward and classic, never boring or tedious. Bright and whimsical-some. Burns on a somewhat quicker than moderate pace on a care-free even-line.

Great amounts of smoke both passively & actively build into a black & white television room-note of a sweet tangy aroma. Mild box press holds admirably, as does ash. Draws smooth gate-to-wire. Would pair well with an early afternoon viewing of WE tv.

FINAL GRADE: A-
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59
