Review Notes: A fellow cigar smoker brought me back one of these from his recent trip north to the Windy City. The tobacconist mentioned that this scored a 96 in CA, but I could not find such a rating. The highest on file was a 90 and an 88. Anyways I digress, this cigar was interesting, it had a very sweet intoxicating pre-light aroma. Once cut and lit, it started off slow as expected due to the shape. It developed an early uneven burn, (shape related) but it was quickly touched up. The flavor was somewhat one dimensional and spicy. Not very overpowering but spice nonetheless, which of course is a signature taste of most Dominicans I have had the opportunity in smoking. It reminded me of a Fuente Don Carlos blend, but not nearly as dry. It produced a copious amount of heavy dense smoke and the draw was extremely easy and smooth. Overall not a bad smoke, but not a homerun in my opinion. Not sure how much my friend paid for this so I will just input MSRP. Again, not a bad smoke, but I think there are certainly better ones out there with more flavor and less money.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (6) No (3)
