Review Notes: When I slid the cover of the cabinet open a full frontal assault of cedar hit me head on, and the lovely scent clung to the stick. Beautiful caramel colored wrapper with no blemishes and almost invisible veins. One small fold marred an otherwise perfect cigar. The triple cap was deep, even, and artfully applied. It had a great springy feel and the pre light taste and aroma are to die for. The trademark Cohiba band slid off smoothly with no resistance. Clipped deeply and cleanly, and sparked easily with an amazing amount of smoke. Damn! Hard to believe so much smoke could have fit in such a small package! Gallons of mellow, mouth filling smoke billowed forth. Spicy yet refined, the cedar flavor is forward and lovely. A dark gray ash followed the inky black burn ring and clung tightly for two solid inches. The finish was smooth and satisfying with a noticeable mellow cedar tone. Enjoyed on the porch with a nice strong double shot of espresso in the light rain, this cigar was very forward in its presentation. Complex notes of heather, coffee, leather, and of course cedar frolicked in the medium bodied taste. Light blue smoke curled from the lit end and the huge clouds of smoke that issued from each puff had a nice beige tint to them. A stately five point (western count) buck stood and watched as I savored the experience of this smallest of the Siglo line. He seemed to enjoy the experience as much as I did. Overall this was an amazingly powerful cigar for being so well aged and such a small vitola. The balanced flavor was never too strong, but packed an incredible punch. If this cigar was any bigger I fear I would have gotten the dreaded Cuban flu from it. As it was I had a lovely 30 minutes of heavenly smoking pleasure and a nice lingering finish that smacked of well aged cedar smoothness. Highly recommended!
