Review Notes: After a terrible first experience with the Samba, I decided to give this one another chance. This one burned perfectly unilke the first one, had none of the harsh notes, and was basically a joy all the way through. If they all end up like this one and less like the disappointing first experience, this has all the makings of a new favorite.

"Ruined by a runner"

Review Notes: I was so looking forward to this one. Immediately disappointed by the acrid flavor in the first 5 minutes, I was rewarded by a rich flavor that opened up beautifully. The draw felt perfect. . . and then it happened. A runner that I couldn't compensate for appeared and caused the cigar to burn horribly unevenly, and basically ended up ruining the experience. . .Maybe more time in the humidor is needed, but I don't know. . .Perhaps I'll have better luck next time.
