Review Notes: I was very excited about going out and purchasing this very well rated cigar. I was so looking forward to the relaxing, well deserved, time that I would spend savoring this stick. When I sat down to light it I put it up to my nose and opened all my senses to take in what I thought would be a rich bouquet. I was taken aback immediately. I thought I was near a very wet and dirty dog. An almost acrid smell was in the mix. I started to wonder. Clipping and lighting the cigar I noticed how poor the wrapper was adhered to the cigar. It started pulling away almost immediately after lighting. I had to lick the side in several places over and over again to stop a serious unwrapping. All of this could have been over looked with a smoke with all the qualities that I had started out to find. Well...that didn't happen. I did get puffs of a rich leather and mahogany flavor, but these were sporadic at best. Nearly every draw brought in a green woody flavor, and had that not been mixed with a metallic, petroleum oil slick that by the end of the smoke left me queazy, I would have been only slightly disappointed. Inch after inch my pallette was accosted with this $11 dollar dissapointment. I can only say that I hope I just bought a bad one, and if I was offered another down the road, I would try it again in the hopes of putting down the bad memories suffered this go around.
