Review Notes: I saw CA's top 25 list, of which this line (mind you epicure No 1) is rated the 10th best cigar of '05. I know that brands do not always have similar- scoring sticks across one run versus another... case in point is Joya de Nicaragua's Antano - awesome - versus Celebration - not so great... but this takes the cake. Note that I didn't ever try, and likely never will try, the Epicure No.1 If you can suffer through the first 2/3rds to 3/4ths of this, the flavor gets better, to one of whale dung at the bottom of the ocean with those lovely sea salt bitter tastes that make your mouth pucker and your voice exclaim 'eww'. Yes, it really is THAT bad, and the sea salt flavor does not make up for the literal taste of, well... dung and manure with lovely undertones of plain ol' ... Well, you get the point without me risking an impropper post here. I have smoked some real dogs in the past, and have said that they "taste like manure" but that was a figure of speach. Here? It really, seriously, literally, does taste like it was removed from the anal orifice of a bovine who consumed too much fiber. Maybe a sewage treatment plant operator would care for this, or a farmer who milks his cows while seated behind the cow, but I would advise never suffering through this thing. Sure, it looks great pre-burn, but I like to *smoke* the cigar, not just sit it down and look at it. The construction was just barely above that of a Phillies Blunt (machine rolled in a brown-shopping bag, or so it seems). I could rant more, but I feel you have been aptly warned. For the record, I have NO clue why I smoked this to the band - perchance I was waiting for it to get better, or perhaps it was the chase it took to find this cigar.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (10) No (4)
