Price doesn't factor into the score, but it is an attractive one. If other samples could provide the flavor profile from the first third longer through the cigar, then this could be really good. It's well worth checking out for the price to see if it's something you might enjoy.

In some samples, the rum barrels are more pronounced and those tend to be sweeter and creamier, but even samples which are less pronounced still deliver that flavor at a softer, less sweet level. This is really an enjoyable cigar that you need to spend some time on.

Like many of AJ's offerings, I found the cigar profile to be good and construction to be top notch. I can say with confidence, Altadis USA made the right decision in partnering with AJ to create this traditional and beloved marca.

This was a solid Goldie and I think it will do well with consumers, mostly because of the size, but it is not my favorite of the Goldies. With time, the flavors will develop in the second and final third, knock on wood, and that will help the cigar in terms of flavors. With that being said, the draw and construction were great and a majority of cigar smokers will truly enjoy.

There is depth from start to finish, transitioning throughout and it never lacked the complexity that you expect from an ultra-premium cigar. The balance between the flavors is fantastic and the changing pepper and spice notes is simply great.

Another of the newer Connecticuts that offers a bit more body and strength while the final third was more traditional. I would definitely recommend giving it a try and it's an easy decision to say that I'd smoke more of these.
