Review Notes: Darker than a murdererís heart, this cigar was so seductive with its luscious, flawless wrapper that I had to pluck it from the box. The smooth, maduro colored wrapper had practically invisible veins, and the twin bands slid off smoothly revealing only one tiny imperfection in the wrapper Ė an oval wrinkle like a small puckered scar. The cap was perfect and once clipped the cigar exhibited a resistant draw. Slow to toast and light, the smoke poured forth, coating my mouth with a rich mixture of hazelnut and creme. Nutmeg and other delectable spices filled out the flavor profile, and the signature fermented loam provided the earthy background. The finish was impressive, offering a lingering, slightly tart and nutty sensation with a hint of varnish. The cigar burned slowly and steadily lasting well over an hour. A nice light ash fell away after a couple of inches to reveal a slightly ragged tip, and the cigar was so oily I swear I could hear it quietly sizzle as I puffed. I enjoyed this cigar with a classic Havana Club Anejo ron with a few clear ice cubes and a twist around the rim and the pairing was perfect. Around the magical halfway mark there was in intense burst of cocoa and dark roasted coffee mixed with peppery spices that was amazing. This cigar was so good I wanted to chew on it. It was a solid stick with impressive heft, and produced a spicy aroma full of warmth, in a word, comfortable. Overall this was a truly epic cigar. A classic stout and robust example of Cuban perfection. I covet the remainder of the box and will enjoy them on holidays and other special occasions for years to come. Run; donít walk to get your hands on some of these. Highly recommended.
