"Power"

Review Notes: This stick packs some punch!! Very nice box-pressed cigar with a dry/rough-looking dark brown wrapper with minimal veins. Nice prelight aroma with solid construction and no soft spots. Easy light. Burned a little hot in the first third, but eased out a bit after. Started with black pepper, earth, and burnt espresso. These flavors were joined by cocoa and a hint of dark chocolate by the halfway point. This rich, complex, and spicy smoke is medium to full-bodied (fuller as you smoke it!) that actually makes your palate and nose tingle! By the last third, I was definitely feeling the Vitamin N, and by the nub, I may have been delerious! The cigar took about an hour to smoke and about an hour and a half to recover. It paired well with Havana Club Rum (7 year), but should be smoked after a good meal, in retrospect. All in all, I thought it was very tasty, but not for the faint of heart.

"Forget the hype"

Review Notes: I was anxious to try this cigar after seeing it rated in CE, and hearing a fellow smoker (although a pretentious one at that) sing its praises. On the plus side, the cigar burned well, had a nice spicy taste and aroma, and was flawlessly constructed. On the down side if I had been blindfolded and someone handed me a Don Elias (available for $1 online) I would not have known the difference. Overall, this is a very tasty cigar, but there are better choices for the budget conscious smoker.

Review Notes: This is an OK cigar. The trouble is that it is outrageosly priced. Construction was OK though the draw was a bit loose. Flavor was pleasent but nothing special.

Review Notes: The wrappers on the 2 I bought did give a real indication of how the smoke would taste, like a bitter wax!

Review Notes: This cigar is not as good as advertised. It is rather one dimensional in flavor having confused strength for flavor.
