Review Notes: Like my 'review title' says, this is an AWESOME smoke whose packaging pushed the price over what I'd be willing to pay for it. Tastes like an even fuller- bodied Cien Anos (Aurora, if you haven't had one and can find them, do yourself a favor... try 'em) Again, great cigar, construction is near- perfect, draw is just a little on the tight side of 'just right' -- enough to let you know it's there, but not enough that you're sucking golf balls through a garden hose... Very firm to the touch, at least near the foot and at the head. Minimal veignage, but a nice bloom starting at only 2 or 3 months (no, it isn't mold, I'm sure... though I'm paranoid about that stuff) Overall a very cedar, sweet-wood, and sweet- spice flavor with abundant smoke density and volume. If cheaper, I'd smoke it as my "go- to" / daily cigar, but at this price, I'll stick with others (PAM 64's and 26's, Partagas vintage, higher- end gurkha's, etc). Bottom line: great cigar, not worth the price, and you are paying for marketing hype about the box.
