Review Notes: This cigar is one of the nicest looking cigars around. A beautiful box pressed toro. Flawless wrapper. These are also aged 12 years- which is considerably more than almost any other. This is all to say that I really wanted to love this cigar. This cigar has very distinct toast flavors and at some points, a burnt toast taste. For this reason, I dropped the flavor score a little since this was not my favorite kind of flavor in a cigar. It was a full-bodied smoke, not sure why Georgerp described as mild-medium, and held on through 2/3rds the way down. About the last 1/3 there were some large sweet notes amongst the toasty frame. The burn was great and the draw was good, but slightly tight. The finish was really good, and honestly my favorite part. The cigar actually calmed a bit in the end and had a some cream notes in and amongst the spiciness. Overall, this cigar was the fullest-bodied cigar I have had and I think that I should give it another chance with some more time in the humidor. I only gave this one a week in the humidor after I bought it.
