Sorry, no pictures, I lost them during a hard disk crash before I could upload them.
The wrapper is pale brown but smooth and only has a few minor veins. The construction feels good and firm, the predraw is fine but leaves hardly any flavor. The aroma is hardly noticable.
I can taste some mild pepper and after an inch I also taste a mild wood flavor while the pepper disappears. Half an inch later the wood disappears too and I taste nothing at all. After a third the wood returns and at the end the wood changes into a mild nut flavor.
The cigar produces a medium thick smoke in a medium volume. The ash is compact and white. The draw and burn are good, but the cigar is mild flavored and mild bodied.
Would I buy this cigar again? No, this cigar is not worth smoking again, hardly any flavors at all.

This 7.5 inch ring 50 churchill has a nice Honduran grown Habano seed wrapper with the color of milkchocolate and a full aroma of grass & hay, a nice yet simple band. The filler is a blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobacco. The cigar feels well constructed, no soft or hard spots, the predraw is good and leaves a hint of raisin on my palate.
The cigar releases a sweet woody flavor with some coffee after about 15 mm. Coffee and wood keep rotating but every now and then a sweet flavor get a foot between the door for a while. Halfway the wood flavor becomes stronger and right before the turning point, which comes quite late, the cigar becomes salty, close to salted liquorices.
Smoking this cigar took me 90 minutes, it’s mild to medium bodied and produces quite nice smoke. The ash is firm and the burn is great.
Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, great cigars for low prices, I want more of those
