Review Notes: I was really, really impressed with this cigar initially. It's a gorgeous cigar, beautifully built. Nice Cameroon wrapper. Seems like a lot of LLG's really enjoy this cigar so I thought I'd go ahead and try one--even though it's a little beyond what I would typically pay for a single. Lit perfectly, draws like a charm...the first thing I noticed is that it doesn't have the "Fuente" taste. I don't know how to explain it, but to me, all of Fuente lines have a very particular taste to them. It was a delicious smoke--to start. The middle third of this brought about a change of flavor in this cigar. It became somewhat of a bland smoke...just nothing to be impressed with. Draw was still great...flavor seemed to go out. Third half the flavor returned and it was really enjoyable--until the wrapper split and started coming apart. I had to finish this cigar without the wrapper leaf, using only the binder. Was ugly, but still tasty--but for 8.00 a stick, I would expect better construction. All in all, I think this is a very good cigar. If you are looking for value, however, I'd suggest looking elsewhere.
