Review Notes: I could not believe that this tiny thing lasted me well over an hour. This one was aged 2 years b/f my brother gave it to me. Burn was a little uneven, but slow and cool. Ash was salt n' peppary like the other Anniversarios and held on for about 1.5". Not bad for a cigar only 4.5"! The draw was firm but smooth via bulls-eye punch. Beautiful milky, tan, oily wrapper. Flavor started off a little bitter, (may have been from match-light). Finish very Earthy and woody. At about 1/3 started getting floral notes and sweet cedary spice. Still am not tasting the chocolate some raters speak of, but perhaps a tinge of nutmeg. The only cigar this small that packed such a punch was the little Opus X. Only ashed 2x through entire smoke. The finish in the last 1/3 left a tingy numbness in my mouth. Definitely a top performer. Smoked this till I needed a roach-clip and was burning my fingers! Since I was given these, I will base value rating on MSRP.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (6) No (8)
