The wrapper used for this cigar has been aging for 5 years. General has yet to disclose the tobacco used for the binder and filler but they have said it is five different tobacco from four different countries. Each cigar comes with a signature gear unique to each size.
The cigars are a gorgeous reddish brown color. There are quite a few vein lines, but I feel like this adds to the overall feel of the cigar. There is a nice triple cap with the rest of the cigar appearing to have good construction. It feels firm to the touch and I did not notice any soft spots.
This cigar starts out as mild with notes of espresso, nuts, and earth. There is a slight spice but nothing overpowering. The cigar stays somewhat consistent as you smoke. The only major change is it moves from slightly sweet in beginning to having a creamy butter finish. The burn was very even and consistent throughout the smoke.
This is a great release from general cigar. The packaging and ideology behind the ornate gears on each cigar is very unique and eye catching. Definitely a great every day smoke that I will be adding to my repertoire.
