Review Notes: I've smoked these several times already but all were OTT. The other day I fished 3 out of the bottom of my Humi that I had forgotten about. I'm guessing they have about 6-8 months of age. Time has done wonders for this cigar. As per usual from the Matasa factory the construction, draw and burn are perfect. They still retain that dryness when taking a hit but it also has a nice cedary taste, a little spiciness along with a gentle kick of pepper. It has a bit of strength but not so much that you would shy away from it as a morning smoke. As another reviewer mentioned, these may do better in a smaller ring gauge so one can enjoy the Criollo wrapper a bit more. It's somewhat muted by the filler in the larger ring gauges. All in all this is a fine smoke. It's an exclusive to the CI/CBid people so make sure you hit their auction site to buy them as the retail price at CI is somewhat high for what you get.
