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.

Review Notes: I was disappointed in this smoke when they arrived. Four months after purchase this is like a different cigar. The wrapper still tries to disintegrate but other than that and a slightly too tight roll these taste great now. I still find it medium with great creamy flavors of cedar and spice. It does approach med-full toward the end and is very satisfying..

Review Notes: I decided 4 weeks was long enough to give this one a second try. As I said in my first review I was not impressed with the first one. Okay here we go. Spicy, peppery start yielding quickly to cream, light spice and cedar. A very white, flaky ash that holds for about an inch. A much better experience the second time around. I purged it when it tunneled about halfway and the flavors picked up in the second half. I noted a sweetness and cinnamon. It is mostly light to medium but will sneak up on you in the last third. The finish is clean and enjoyable. A good cigar, though not an Edicion Especial in my opinion.

Review Notes: First of 18 on two days rest. The wrapper is very delicate and separated immediately just below the cap, then in the middle. The creaminess is there, but the flavor is weak for the first couple of inches. I patched the split and waited for the flavor I read about. OK, there's about 2 1/2" of this thing left and still not much flavor. The end is here, bringing very little with it. I'll rest them a month or so and we'll see.
