The M.X.S. Signature (M.X.S. stands for Maximum-Excellence-Success) lines from A.C.E. Prime Cigars are each a collaboration between former athletes. The lines also bear the name of the athletes they are dedicated to.
Tiago Splitter, a former N.B.A. player and is now player development coach with the Brooklyn Nets. Aside from that, he is also co-founder of A.C.E. Prime. He is also co-owner of Tabacalera Pichardo, where the cigars are made. The Tiago Splitter Signature consists of two sizes, Robusto and Toro.
The wrapper is of a pale brown Colorado shade, which is somewhat typical for a Sumatra wrapper. It is smooth to the touch, and the filling is generous with a uniform construction.

ACE Prime M.X.S Signature Tiago Splitter Robusto: herbal, hay, and spicy notes are perceived in the cold draw. The cigar opens with sweet nutty aromas and herbs.
Overall, the ACE Prime M.X.S Signature Tiago Splitter Robusto starts promising, with a balanced and round profile. But from the second third on, it gradually declines in terms of the intensity, with the flavors being very light in body. The numerous burn corrections didn’t help either.
