Review Notes: What a difference from my earlier review. I am now smoking from a box marked TEN JUN08. This is an exceptional cigar!! Beautiful dark brown almost maduro silky and oily wrapper on a box-pressed cigar. Good resistance to the pinch, the cigar is not hard. It was easy to cut the beautiful three seams cap. Before lighting, drawing is easy and spicy. After lighting, drawing big mouthfuls of dense and velvety smoke is easy, the ash was tight the burn straight with the exception of a small fraction that corrected itself. The last inch was a little underfilled. The flavor is exceptional: first third is an explotion of leather, spices and earth. The second third was mellower with the addition of roasted nuts, the third is stronger is very spicy, leathery and earthy.

"CLO OTC00: not up to par"

Review Notes: I have had this box for quite some time hoping that aging could improve the flavors. All of them from this box are the same. Appearance is fine even though the color of the wrapper is lighter than I would like. They have some small veins. Construction is fine, they draw well and the ash is tight. HOWEVER,  they are mild, somewhat grassy and, at times, a little harsh. When tobacco is not that great to begin with, there is no aging that can improve it!
