"Delicious."

Review Notes: Wow. First off, this guy is gorgeous. The wrapper looks like it should have been used to make a bomber jacket. The construction is impecible, firm with just a little give, yet the draw is smooth, if ever so slightly tight (this is the only remotely negative thing I have to say about the entire experience and the only reason it gets those two '8's). It smoked slow, cool and even down to the band (which took me something like 90 minutes to get to). The flavor was ever so slightly a tad bit harsh only while I was actually lighting it. After that t calmed down beautifully! Leathery, creamy and nutty (I almost want to say specifically like a Brzil Nut, but that may be the subconcious influence of the wrapper color talking) with a nice layer of spice throughout. The creamy leather-nuttiness got more pronounced as I worked my way down, but the spice never became overpowering. The slight aftertaste I have left is utterly pleasant. Many "full bodied" cigars leave me wanting mouthwash at the end, however the thought never even occured to me while smoking this beauty. I recently smoked a pair of Cuban LGCs while overseas, and I don't think they had anything on this cigar. The bang for the buck is incredible for this baby!

Review Notes: I'm suprised to see the word "harsh" so often repetead with regards to this cigar...perhaps consistency is an issue. The box I got anyway is anything but-of the four I've smoked aso far, they've all been very very smooth. I've also smoked several singles from various time periods out of different boxes from my local cigar shop...none were even close to "harsh." That being said, i'm rarely in the mood for this cigar, but I do enjoy them on a hot day along side a microbrewed rootbeer, the creamy chocolatey-leather flavors are really highlighted that way....if you like the serie R, you should try it with a good rootbeer! For this flavor profile, I find myself often smoking the Cusano 18 paired maduro over the LGCs (which BTW is the only Cusano I've EVER enjoyed, a black sheep, but a very good one!) because I tend to gravitate towards more strength in both flavor and power...but when I'm feeling in the mood for a lighter, creamier smoke, this one always satisfies...slow burning as any good maduro shoud be, although it takes experience to tend to the burn of such a large ring gauge...I'd imagine if you were drinking coffee or espresso, it would be hard to taste the cigar...very mild. Leaves a great aftertaste that lasts a long time. All in all, a great cigar for what it's trying to be, but it doesn't blow my socks off, but hey, sometimes my feet get cold....to each his own.

Review Notes: Heard great reviews of this cigar and find full bodied cigars to my liking, but this cigar was harsh. I thought it might settle down after a while, but after about half of it I gave up.
