I been wanting to get my hands on one of these for a while and then got one in a trade from Captain Punishment. I let it sit in the humi for about two weeks before sparking. Now I have read some reviews on how the cigar being capped on both ends kept the tobacco moist and effected burn so I clipped the foot after one week and then clip the mouth piece about 3 days before lighting her up. It was about 30 degrees last night so it was a nice night for a cigar. This cigar took a bit to cherry up but nothing to out of the ordinary. The cold draw did not give the usual flavor a potent cigar will but I cold tell it had some power it had strong hints of earth and a fine grassy flavor. Once lit this thing had some kick but not the usual lingero flavor it was more of a strong leather taste. The retro hale def woke up my senses which I love and the smoke that poured out was incredible even resting. After the first 1/3 I could feel this cigars power but again I did not have the typical lingero flavor of a JDN do PA. It was a very leathery smoke that coated the entire palate with a sweatiness on the back end. This smoke def had a sweatiness but hen the power would ramp back up again. On to the final third I started to smell almost like a musty cologne on the resting smoke weird but I could def smell. Now the last third of this cigar the pepper ramp up a bit but on the backend of the retrohale the sweetness also increased. The final part of this cigar was pretty sweet for how much power it had. I def felt cigar in the head and the gut but it was def an experience that I truly enjoyed one of the best muscle cigars I've had if you can get your hands one one of these I would highly recommend it but I recommend it as a after dinner cigar especially if your not a strong cigar smoking. This cigar has taste that would appeal to a medium smoker since the power didn't exactly kick you the teeth but it def was there.
