Review Notes: It's weird reviewing a cigar that was changed not so long ago. In a perfect world there would be two separate entries, one for the DPG and one for the recent form. I'm reviewing the latter (I think) with about a month and a half in the humidor. The wrapper is nice looking, dark and slightly oily. A perfect draw with a woody pre-light flavor. Construction appears very good with a firm, uniform feel from head to foot. The initial flavors are sweet and spicy. Very nice, with lots of smoke and a medium body. Later the spice recedes some and I taste fruit, almost fig-like flavors with others I can't identify. The spice returns in the final third with a peppery finish on the tip of my tongue and lips. The finish is short and not overpowering at all. The robusto had more pepper than this; I think I like this shape better for that reason. The construction is excellent and continues that way all the way to the nub. This is a very nice cigar that I recommend. The value is based on a $4 auction price.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (12) No (11)
