Review Notes: I have to eat my own words (tastes like chicken) regarding a review only a week ago on this cigar. The same cigar with maybe another 2 months conditioning became a completely different stick. What made the difference? Time I guess (a similar experience with a recent VS 55 Corojo) is the key but in all honesty I have no idea what would make this big a difference in the same cigar. Quality control at VS? Conditioning? Maybe… In the end it really doesn’t matter…the damn thing tasted GREAT! This is the first time I have been able to see what other reviewers have been so excited about. Medium bodied, smooth, buttery light spice, Great draw, wonderful quantity of smoke, even burn, long gray tight ash, and never needed any attention. What I really enjoyed during the entire smoke was the sweetness both in smoke as well as aftertaste. Very good! The problem now is that I just smoked the last one. Does anyone have at least a 6 month aged Green Label they can loan me? You will be paid back in 6 months after the NEW ones take a little rest.

Review Notes: After trying the “8 inch monster” I gave the robusto size a whirl. After about 2 months total in the humidor (actually more like 4) the taste was not that much different than its larger brother. I like the taste of this cigar which as described before is very earthy and this time, walnut sweet. Real interesting flavor! Construction issues are still there though. The draw was to tight creating little smoke with out triple puffs and the cigar was hard to keep lit. Again just too much work! I smoke cigars for the taste and to relax. It has the taste but damn, unlike almost all of my other cigars, it’s a lot of trouble. I would have to think twice about buying them again with so many other quality cigars to choose from. I don’t want to be forced into waiting over a year for a $2 dollar cigar to “find itself.”
