"Good stuff...too much work...this time"

Review Notes: In general, I've got a three touch-up rule. If I've got to re-light a cigar more than three times...it's over. Unlike other RP's I've had, this one pushed it to the limit (I'll have to downgrade this one on construction). I almost pitched it early. All that aside, it was a positive experience. Good flavor from start to finish...never bitter...just a typical RP Vintage cigar. What makes it all better is that I bought these in a three vintage package from CI. At $45 delivered for the 15 cigars, the price per stick makes any dificulties seem less to be concerned about. All in all, try them but be sure to hold them in the cooler for at least three months before you do. They're tasty.

Review Notes: A smooth and dark wrapper covers this nicely shaped and pressed cigar. No. 16 in Cigar Aficionado's top 25 cigars of 2006. The draw is a touch firm, but the mostly even burn leaves behind solid ash. It's a smooth smoke filled with dark chocolate and coffee flavors with a pleasantly nutty aftertaste. Balanced and elegant, and just about worthy of its relatively high price tag.

Review Notes: Nice looking cigar with box press. Good draw, lots of smoke. But I expected more depth to the taste. I thought it was a little harsh without corresponding richness.

"Unsimply wonderful"

Review Notes: This is a lovely, complex cigar. It has become my favorite. The burn is even and slow with a smooth draw. While the spices are complex and increase throughout, the aging has mellowed it enough for milder palates. Then there is the wrapper -- it's like piquant leather. Unlike another reviewer, I prefer the torpedo to the Churchill -- it has more complexity, and doesn't burn out toward the nub.

"A Top Ten Smoke"

Review Notes: I had my first one of these a couple of days ago. The pre-light was nice and leathery with a smooth, silky wrapper. Lit it up and right away got a good creamy, leathery taste. Billows of pleasant smelling smoke that lasted all the way through. Burn was flawless and held a nice long ash. Overall, a very smooth full bodied smoke that bit not bite even at the nub. Went well with the Maker's Mark.
