Review Notes: I won this box about 6-8 months ago and put them in the bottom of my humidor while I smoked a box of CI Legends by DP Garcia and other stuff. They've really come into their own with deep, semi-sweet flavors, perhaps vanilla and an interesting sweet spice on the finish, not completely unlike RP Decades. They've all burned perfectly so far, slow and even. I've found they, like most all cigars but particularly these, need to be smoked slowly and not pushed or they'll become bitter. If you're patient and age them some and smoke them so they don't get too hot these are really fine smokes. On the down side the ash can be a little flaky, not unlike some Decades I've smoked. CI calls them medium bodied and I can't disagree. If you're the patient type and like that dark Sumatran wrapper found on the Decade you will probably like these. I don't mean to say these are Decades or as good as Decades, but there are some similarities I think. Anyway, they are a good deal and the cigars from this box have been really good. I'd buy them again, for sure.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (7) No (11)
