Review Notes: SEP 02 - Was gifted this very elegant smoke by a great friend. This cigar has all the great creamy and rich with a certain background we expect. Smoked slowly; this stick reveals many complexities and rewards the smoker with much enjoyment. A must have in the humi.

Review Notes: Long, thin cigars always make one have doubts about the construction before lighting them. The burn is usually not an issue with thin vitolas, provided the cigars have been stored under adequate conditions, but many panatelas have a terribly tight draw. Not this one. The construction is absolutely perfect, I have yet to encounter one with a bad draw. The taste is an excellent one, very complicated, but well balanced. This is a cigar well worth trying, since it combines great flavour, impeccable construction and commendable consistency.

Review Notes: Got a box of these (OSU JUN02), tempted from the previous reviewers here. Although not everyone's favourite size, do read on. I fixed myself a nice chilled espresso and fired the 4 year old stick. This "Delicado Extra", is longer and slightly bigger than a panetela. I tried to smoke it slowly (as I usually devour cigars ) and that's why I had to relight it a number of times with no problems. Construction was great and smell was the same. I cut and lit it with ease and the draw was good. First puffs reminded me of Cuban punch's and I particularly liked that you didn't have to smoke and inch to feel what's going on. It started with the typical Cuban taste we know and love. In the 2nd third it was surprise time: CHOCOLATE!!! Tonz of it - my mouth was absolutely full. I mean I haven't tasted this in any cigar to date. I feel that the iced espresso accentuated this even more. I also tasted dried nuts, may I be specific and say macadamias. The taste of sweet chocolate continued in the last third, without any awkward surprises. But the complexity of this stick didn't end here as the sweetness gave its place to wet earth which at times would very suddenly alternate with leather, which I liked a lot. Didn't part with it until there was less than an inch left and I have to say that bitterness was not present even at this point. Summarizing, this was an excellent medium bodied cigar, surprisingly and incredibly complex (age?), and although not a popular size and brand I am sure many will find at least enjoyable. I absolutely loved it!!!

"Surpise surprise"

Review Notes: I am not a fan of this format, usually very difficult to smoke. But this LCG, brought to me by a friend directly from Cuba, was a hell of a surprise. Impeccable construction and an easy draw were very positive first points. The fact that it needed some fire up was nothing but normal, given the format. And the flavours: oh so cuban, with that cuban "twang" (cocoa? leather?) so unmistakebly....cuban. Very smooth, but with some punch too. A great cigar, really. Good value, too, at least at cuban prices (6$)

Review Notes: This cigar deserves the time and ambience that I had reserved for it as I was sure it was gonna be a beut. I was not disappointed. Rich, full bodied, complex with a creamy finish.... Everything a cigar should be. I cant wait to try an aged one of these.
