Cigar Review: Man ‘O War Ruination “Robusto” No. 1

Initial Thoughts:

The first thought I had about the Man ‘O War Ruination was, “Wow, this cigar smells amazing!” This cigar is a blend coming from AJ Fernandez, and it has an Ecuadorian Sun Grown wrapper that just looks amazing. Although my cutter didn't make a perfect cut, I'm excited to see what this cigar delivers.

After lighting the cigar, the first puffs had a mix of flavors. There was a combination of really good flavors that were paired with flavors that were just okay.

During the first third, the Man ‘O War Ruination had a somewhat uneven burn, and a few harsh flavors did pop up. However, with all that going on, I still like the cigar so far.
