Review Notes: I've been holding onto this one for a few years. A good friend gave me this stick after he went on a journalism assignment in Havana. I've been admiring it as if it were a trophy largemouth mounted on my wall. Finally, I just had to try it. First off, the feel of the cigar was like holding Excalibur. Solid, smooth and velvety to the touch. The oils stayed on my fingers and there was a nice plume visible in the light. The pre-light aroma reminded me of wheat and oats. The cigar lit with ease and glowed with an intense orange glow. The burn was slow and the draw easy. The first 1/4 of the cigar was smooth as silk with subtle flavors of nuts and clover honey. The middle portion of the cigar gained power and rallied to an earthy, almost root flavor. The final inch of the cigar again mellowed and took on flavors of wood and leather. Just an amazing cigar. I would pay the asking price (assuming I could afford it) if I could just get my hands on them. Lets drop the embargo and all have a good smoke!
