Review Notes: 16 months in the humidor may have helped this a bit. Again the first 1/3 was very tasty. Coffee, chocolate , nutty. 2/3 much stronger. sweet nutty taste was gone, still coffee and smokey flavors. After the band it got harsh and I put it out with 2 1/4 inches to go.

Review Notes: Nice dark brown wrapper.Medium firm body.Strong woodsy/charcoal flavors with pepper.Hard to retrohale.Good quantity of smoke..perfect draw.Required a touch up or two,but not bad.Developed strength midway,but was not bitter or harsh.Finished even stronger..but not offensive. Def a full bodied cigar.I would smoke another.

Review Notes: Overall, I found neocacher's review to be strikingly similar to my own sentiments regarding this train-wreck of a cigar. Started off great, then went downhill fast. I might try another one if it was a gift, but I certainly will not be buying any more of these. See my full review soon at http://lazycigarsreviews.blogspot.com/

Review Notes: this cigar had a great appearance. The taste in the first half of the cigar was excellent, and the burn was very good. Problems started when I carefully removed the beautifully designed band. An excess of glue in the middle of the band caused sticking and the wrapper tore. There was nothing that I did wrong. The tear was not so bad that I couldnt smoke the rest of it so on I went. After a few more minutes with more that 40% of the cigar left the taste went to very bitter, much earlier than I find acceptible in a cigar. Also the burn got much worse. I would have rated the cigar an 8.5 for the first half, but the second have I would have to rate a 3 or 4. Apparently there are construction issue with this company, the two 1997's I smoked yesterday had similar issues. They need to watch attention to the details (glue on the middle of the band are just not acceptlble especially when it causes tearing.) It could have been a very good cigar. I got this in a sampler trade from a forum member for only $1.75 so it was worth the money for the first half. If I would have quit smoking it then, I would have been happier! If I had paid $6 for this stick, I would have felt cheated. I am rating the value at for that price.

Review Notes: Very nice looking cigar with great draw and lots of smoke. The cigar canoed badly and the flavor was almost non-existent. Its been in the humidor for about a month - perhaps it just needs more time
