Review Notes: This is the one I've been waiting for. It draws firm but well allowing the deep rich flavors of coffee bean, semi-sweet chocolate, and creamy hints of caramel to flow nicely. I am so happy I just had to do a 5 year review. I promise I won't review these again until their tenth birthday.

"4 years and counting..."

Review Notes: Chronic draw problem takes away from this now, vintage smoke. If Perdomo had not felt the need to over press this cigar and allowed it to draw decently you would see more reviews and good ones. Best enjoyed with coffee in the morning or early afternoon the now mild-med body and flavors of black, sweet, coffee and wood are only held back by the construction. Remember Nick, the box press was originally developed to keep the cigars from rolling off the roller's table, not to improve the smoking experience.

"Viva Dos Rios"

Review Notes: Not too excited about my "deal" 35 stogies for $40 when I first received my Rios. They were tough to draw and one dimensional, maybe because of the draw. After I stored them for 18 months, trying one occasionally along the, the improvement was remarkable. Deep earthy/woody tobacco flavor with a hint of coffee and med. to full body.
