Review Notes: Once upon a time, Cuban cigars were strong, harsh, and bitter...Some older smokers search for cigars that reflect that era...unfortunately "new age Cubans" are the polar opposite...flavors of candy sweet florals, and creamy mocha lattes are all too common now...if you started smoking during this new age, and have never experienced a harsh smoke, this cigar definately is not for you...OK here goes: Appearence...full on mottled coloring, covered in a thick layer of bloom-looks had me salivating in anticipation...Construction was good-firm roll for a slow burn, no soft spots, and plumes of smoke. Flavor...good pre-light FX, very nutty.(initial) after toasting the foot, I enjoyed a toasty tobacco flavor with woods lurking behind. (1st_3rd) Cedar WOW CEDAR! stale spice, wood dominates; bitter, very appealing. (2cnd) Nutty...again in overdrive, distinctly walnut and pistachio...the clarity of the specific flavor took me by suprise...(3rd-nub) This is where it went from being a nice smoke to a memorable experience...Leather and wood dominate the finnish...harsh, bitter...but oh so sweet! (figuratively speaking). The only thing that was lacking was vitamin N. The power just was not there. 7 years age wasn't enough to tame this beast...but I really appreciate that! Had I tried this Honduran fresh, I think I'd have cursed Hoyo out loud! lol.
