Review Notes: The roll on this one was so tight I'm not sure I should rate it due to the fact I had to wrestle the smoke from it. It had to affect the quality of the experience and flavor. It has it's moments but not enough.

"Tasty...but delicate"

Review Notes: I have had about 60 of these resting since last fall and have put them in the line-up. The upside is a really great flavor. Not overwhelmingly strong but just the right mixture of creaminess and depth. These can compete with any other medium strenth cigar on flavor. But be gentle! The wrappers are like tissue paper and split very, very easily. This is not a golf cigar. Treat it delicately and enjoy the flavor~

"Bold"

Review Notes: This was a very nice smoke with a smooth wrapper that had no soft spots. The foot lit and burned even. The taste was medium to full body with notes of distinct wood and aroma of cedar. The finish was full and had just a hint of spicy flavors to it. A very nice bold corojo that will be even better with time in the humi.

"Still in my starting lineup"

Review Notes: Having gone through about 20 of these now, I too have come across some split wrappers. I haven't run across more than one or two with the tight draw noted by others, however. The Achilles remains in my starting lineup, particularly with morning coffee. The core flavor is leather, with hints of nuts and mild spice. Strength ranges from mild at the start to richly medium-bodied. Fulfilling. For an average bid price of just over $2, I can scarcely think of a better value. If you can still find some, load up. I did.

"Ruptured Wrapper Detracted from Greatness"

Review Notes: Let me say, this is one of over 200 cigars I have on hand right now...warning bells, it is the only one I have that split/ruptured while in the humidor. I was alarmed until I read the reviews and take the rupture as a possible construction fault. Overall, taste was great...I mean, really enjoyable and hauntingly familar when compared to the best smokes I've had. However, the cigar lacked on volume of smoke per drag, and the construction...well, it was less than favorable (again to the rupture). It was a weak wrapper supported by several soft spots. Examining the most important aspect, flavor, this cigar was heavy on the cocoa, light on the leather w/just a hint of refined spice, a really exceptional flavor. In sum, I would smoke this as a gift, but would not walk out of my way to keep in my humidor...for me the rupture, construction and weak output kept this cigar in the realm of the average.
