Review Notes: I thought this cigar would shine after a few months in the humidor, but it has dropped much of the strength that I liked originally and now I can see that there is not all that much actual flavor to speak of. A real let down after the first one I tried.

"9+ not quite"

Review Notes: I picked these up with a nice SAVOY humidor from HOLT's cigars. The ratings, although sparse, had stated that these were amazing cigars. Well, they are ok. My brother actually did not like them, saying they were too strong. We will chalk that up to his being a wuss though :) I found that they were somewhere between smooth and bitter. Smoked slowly, I think the flavors come through less quickly and will not overwhelm your pallate. I smoked one of these in the time it took my brother to smoke this and another full length robusto. All-in-all, a nice cigar. Good looking, nice burn and feel. The flavor was just average and the aromo fine. Not a 9+ like the others are saying, but if you can get them for a deal, do it(26 bucks a box at Holts -65% MSRP on special).
