Review Notes: Ditto what ElkTwin said. Awesome cigar, power evident, draw and burn perfect, started off with smooth habano taste, middle and last third had loads of sweet ceamy cedar and leather. What a great smoke. Great value.

Review Notes: great light tan coloring. No veins with a sheen of oil and a nicecap. Lots of flavor that continued throughout the cigar. This one is a mouthful. A medium cigar that cuban through and through. I ordered a box today...

Review Notes: I tilted the bundle forward and slipped a stick from the yellow ribbon and was greeted by a light colored cigar with a velvety smooth wrapper. Impeccably constructed with a beautiful cap, this beauty was straight and stout with slight mold marks along its side from the rollerís press. Large in girth, the impressive cigar felt great in the hand and mouth. I held it in my mouth while I lit the evening fire, and although dry to the tongue there was a surprising amount of pre light bite Ė all the way to the back of the throat. Took to the fire willingly, and burst forth with an astringent, teeth rattling blast of flavor. Tannin and alkali hit first, but were buffered with a smooth chalky citrus overtone. There was a slight tan cast to the solid ash, and what appeared to be a fold in the filler left a line down the side of the ash as it grew. After an inch and a half of slightly uneven burn I knocked it off to reveal a slightly off center cone. The finish was attention getting with a puckering bite that grabbed the sides of the tongue and cheeks. I enjoyed this cigar in the cool afternoon with the storm clouds scudding across the sky. It was a good accompaniment to my chores, following me with an aggressive, sharp and highly pitched aroma. The big cigar had and imposing girth and after the halfway mark the only adjective that can apply is powerful. Wave upon wave of big, bold Havana flavor washed over me as I worked. Overall this is a big, bold Havana with a certain sophistication. The assertive flavors make your mouth dry and pull your cheeks in tight, and the kick is impressive. Even with the tempered edge this cigar is very edgy. With this much power I estimate that it can age gracefully for at least a few more years. Recommended.

"Full bodied smoke"

Review Notes: A full bodied cigar with an escalating spice to it the full way through. Notes of cedar and cream evolved to a more powerful tanned leather taste beginning at the end of the second third. The cigar began to burn unevenly around halfway through, but had a beautiful oily wrapper that stayed firm through the entire smoke. It is quite like an opus x in that if one smokes it too quickly or without a beverage the taste will quickly become overpowering. A relaxing experience.

Review Notes: Great looking wrapper, smooth & silky. The cigar bured even until the end which didn't bother me much. Medium body (on the lighter side of medium) and smooth draw.
