"Wonderful!!"

Review Notes: This is a very tasty smoke! Nice smooth brown wrapper with minimal veins. Solid construction without soft spots or voids. Nice prelight aroma. Easy light. Smooth draw. Even burn without the need for relights or corrections. Gray-white ash. Lots of creamy smoke. Started with tobacco, wood, and a mild nutty nuance. The melange of woody flavors maitained a dominant presence throughout the smoke. A hint of sweetness was detected, as well, that was noticeable during the entire 1 hour 15 minute experience. This was a fairly one-dimensional cigar, in my opinion, in that the flavor profile really didn't change as it was smoked, though it did get smoother and more creamy. Nonetheless, it was very tasty and most enjoyable. Paired wonderfully with a cup of Killer Beans. One of the best morning smokes I have had. Bought a cab.

Review Notes: Received a sample pack of 5 different vitolas the other day, no clue what factory or date codes are, unfortunately. Typically I enjoy a nice full-bodied cigar paired with the right drink. Had this with California Cabernet. Cigar totally over powered the wine, one of the strongest cigars I have ever had (Joya de Nicaragua Antano 1970 Machito Robusto is another that was so strong as to be unenjoyable). Well made and fine appearance, just that I found it to have been far too strong. The flavors did not develop or change at all. I did not enjoy this cigar. I still have one more and will let it sit who knows 3 6 9 months and if it is improved will definately update this review as I may simply have smoked one that was in its dead period.

Review Notes: This cigar started off with a mild sweetness of assorted fruits and tons of smoke. Even at the start, my mouth is full of pleasant aftertaste. Draw is effortlessly after sitting in my humidor for only one month. Smooth with a subtle hint of harshness. Short term aging of 1 year is most likely all it need.
