Review Notes: This stick had a rough, leathery looking wrapper that was dark as bakerís chocolate and it had that beautiful Ramon Allones band cinched up tight. A slightly uneven roll with a few wrinkles surrounded a bunch of filler that was compact and dense. The triple cap was artfully applied. There was a noticeable heady barnyard aroma pre-light, and the overall impression was of a powerful serpent coiled to strike. The dense roll made for a tight draw and the smoke was hard to pry free at first, but that didnít seem to slow the assault. Great full flavor, zesty and aggressive took over immediately. A full bodied smoke full of peat and leather with a hint of iodine and some seaweed, this reminded me of a powerful lowland malt. The tight draw caused an interesting effect as smoke continued to stream up from the foot even during a long draw on the cigar. The finish was impressive and thorough. It nailed me with a lingering dose of aged cedar and Cuban depth. Paired with a bottle of RH Phillips Viognier white this cigar came out swinging and easily overpowered the fruity wine. Halfway through the draw opened up and the smoke began to really flow increasing the volume and creating an impressive bright orange cherry and a diamond hard petrified ash. The aroma from the cigar was equally powerful and reminded me of an old girlfriend, pervasive and clingy. Overall I was impressed by the power and the flavor that this little cigar delivered. It hit me head on with insistent in your face flavor and finish, and kept me very satisfied throughout the 45 minute experience. Not for the feint of heart it was spectacular in its intensity. Highly recommended.
