Review Notes: Beautiful dark, toothy wrapper with an easy light and draw. Starts out spicy, woody and slightly sweet. Hints of coffee, leather, honey and perfumed soap show up here and there. Holds up well to a lager with a med-full strength and flavor. The spices become sweeter and the wood becomes creamier after two inches. A little more corojo and less wood and we would be talking top tier. The white ash is nearing two inches and holding dropping only a few flakes in my lap. I spoke too soon, it just fell off. The complexity makes this an enjoyable smoke. The strength and flavors vary as you approach halfway, the burn near perfect. I received this in a Holt's sampler. Not caring for the dbl corona probably would not have tried it otherwise. I think this cigar was aged much longer. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed this one and with proper aging you will too. Value based on $2.00 sampler price.
