Review Notes: This is a step up from the Dominican Partagas. maybe 2 steps up. Like some of the other reviews, I had a slightly tight draw but it did not infringe on the amount smoke I got. I also tasted the musty wood at the start which was followed by toasted nutty flavor. then came the spice. The last third was very spicy. So much it will make your lips tingle. This is the epitomy of a Cuban cigar. Highly recommend you try one!!!! Price I paid may seem a little high but the cigars came from England .

Review Notes: I purchased a 10 count varnished box and upon opening was immediately hit with a mouth watering aroma. The presentation is beautiful- wrapped in a silk bow within wax paper. I almost wanted to put the bundle of cigars in a glass case humidor and never smoke them, they looked so nice. These had a box date from December '05 exactly one year from this month. After a few days in the humidor I couldn't wait and had to light one up. Since these had a year of aging on them they were actually just right. It was more complex then I had expected for the ring size that this was. A comfortably firm draw, and some nutty, and even creamy flavors. The only down side was I had some uneven burn issues, but this could have been my fault for not letting them rest in my humidor for longer. This is a new favorite of mine!

Review Notes: I received this cigar as part of the monthly selection from The Canadian Cigar Club, several months ago. I finally decided to light this one and was greatly pleased. The construction was very good, with a slightly tight draw that did not prevent large amounts of smoke. The burn was sharp and the ash held for well over an inch. The flavor was a combination of spice and woods, with a very small amount of leather. Overall, this was a highly enjoyable cigar.

Review Notes: An excellent smoke. This particular stick from '99 (TDC CCUG) appeared to be wrapped with milk chocolate with a mild toothiness, to boot. Almost no noticeable veins and the traditional triple cap. Good construction without soft spots. Easy light. Slightly firm draw. Uneven burn in the first third that required one correction, but then evened out throughout the remainder of the stick. Gray-black ash. Started with musty wood, which eased its way into honeyed tobacco, mild spice, mild peppercorn, worn leather, and cream in the first third. The middle third brought notes of oak, chestnut, leather, and a slight tannic quality which betrayed its age. There was also a noticeable increase in flavor at this point. In the last third, toast, spice, and mild earth were painted on a woodsy backdrop. I had thought I also tasted seared flesh, but soon realized that I was done with the cigar and, indeed, it was my fingers. ;) All in all, this one hour 15 minute medium-bodied, smooth, complex smoke was very enjoyable. Aside from the burn issues in the first third that detracted somewhat from the experience, the remainder of the cigar was a delight. Paired well with Ron Matusalem rum.

"2000 not quite as good"

Review Notes: Tried a 2000 tonight, a good smoke with a razor sharp burn, lush smoke filled draw, and the Partagas flavor profile. Just hard to live up to the 1998 I smoked last month, but still a winner.
