Pre-smoke Comments:
Smooth, slightly veiny wrapper with slightly visible seams, a smooth, medium length cap, hard bunch, and tight, flavorless cold draw. Overall appearance is attractive.
Smoke/Burn Comments:
Even burn, flat coal, and a typical structure, mottled black ash.
Draw/Smoke comments:
A tight draw, good volume of smooth, cool smoke, and a faint aroma of wood and tobacco. humidor
Flavor/Taste Comments:
Medium richness and body, mild strength,  and a perfect balance, medium flavors, of wood and tobacco. 
Finish/Aftertaste Comments:
Weak strength,  very brief length, and a  woody aftertaste/finish.
Summary Comments:
Overall,  a good cigar, but I cant say it’s any better than that, even excluding the tight draw after a few runs with the PerfecDraw,  and a barely “good" smoke volume.  The flavor was just too weak/mild, and wasn’t anything special at wood and plain tobacco, and I prefer a little stronger and longer lasting aftertaste/finish and a stronger more fragrant aroma. 
Plus, definitely nowhere near being worthy of $14 each, box price.
Overall score is an 82 out of 100, putting it solidly in the middle of the “good" range.
