Review Notes: From a box, POS March '07. When I first got them I smoked a few and they were nice but one-dimensional. A year later and they are stunning, with a lot of potential to get better. Shiny red-brown wrapper, a little rumpled looking. Very little pre-light aroma. Just a slight nuttiness. From the get-go this is a perfect storm of flavor. Coffee, oak, spice, herbs all packed into the first few puffs. There's also a light sweetness. Powerful, but with charm and reserve. Second half the flavor deepens and gets stronger. The flavor gets just a wee bit muddy at the end, I think a little more aging will help that. The aroma of the smoke in the room is like flowers and was very nearly the best part of this smoke. If I can keep my hands off them I'll give them another year and they'll be otherworldly. I read somewhere these come fully into their own after about three years. I'll let you know.
