Review Notes: I smoked 2 of these cigars and did not enjoy either one. I bought them at the JR store in Manhattan. After the "92" rating by CA, I figured I was in for a treat, especially for only $5 a stick. However, from the time I lit this thing up, the burn was uneven and there was major canoeing. The draw was good. The flavor was chock full of hot, peppary spices and maybe some paprika or celery salt. Not what I was expecting. I did not taste any of the chocolaty qualities that CA wrote about and the other raters here. The cigar was beautiful looking, with a nice square box-press and dark, oily wrapper. But that was it. I could barely tolerate smoking this thing. It was just brutally overpowering and strong, but not in a good way. I did not find this to be a balanced cigar at all. I really wanted to like this one, but I cannot say I enjoyed it. The smoke was choking me. Took me half the night to recover from this awful smoke.
