Review Notes: After an OK experience smoking, the monster, I decided to drop down to the size I smoke and regularly enjoy. Im not disappointment. The appearance was still a little rough but the color and aroma both before and after being lit was excellent. Construction and maintenance issues have plaque most VS cigars I have smoked but not this time. This stick stayed lit and after a quick correction burned very evenly with a nice tight ash. The flavor was and is hard to pin down so Im just going to call it smooth, buttery and rich. Tons of smooth billowy smoke came from an almost perfect draw and to my amazement nothing came apart. The latter was a shock as I sat with my better half placing bets on when this stick would either unravel or go out. Neither happened. I have to assume that this cigar absolutely requires time in lower humidity. It certainly helped this time around but does make you ask the question: Why does a cigar with 5 years aging require so much box time to reach its potential? Maybe they are measured in dog years.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (9) No (9)
