Review Notes: Some of these are so spicy and leathery that they make you swoon, others are flat and metallic. No rhyme or reason either. But when they are on they are epic, so I always take the risk.

Review Notes: When I go to Oporto, Portugal (actually Vila Nova de Gaia) to review the available ports and decide which vintages are appropriate to lay down, I usually eschew the Lisboa to Oporto connection on TAP in favor of a leisurely drive across Spain. A flight to Madrid, and then an afternoon drive through the Moorish section of Spain seems to melt the tension and leave me more refreshed and ready to relax at the port houses. It also allows for the procurement of reasonably priced cigars for the drive. These were from a lonely box of SD #4s I found in the middle of Madrid. I picked them up and then headed for the bull ring for an evening's relaxation. The crowd was lively, the weather beautiful, and these cigars smoked very well out of the box. The date code said they were almost a year old when I bought them, but they smoked smooth and with characteristic power.
