Review Notes: A slender cigar with a slightly lumpy roll, the band was applied tightly and gave the illusion of choking the stick. While the cigar was aged enough that the band spun on the cigar, it would not slide off. One edge of the caramel colored wrapper was lighter and lent a barber pole effect to the cigar and a few small green blotches were apparent. The draw was a bit tight but the smoke blasted right through with a fairly unidimensional flavor, pleasant and strong tobacco was the impression. The ash was tight and even though it curved a bit held on for a solid two inches. The slightly edgy finish had a nice lingering woodiness with a touch of soap, and the cigar burned well all the way, never too hot. The slim shape focused the flavor and gave the expected minor bite. A sensational aroma served as a nice bonus. Enjoyed with an inch of Havana Club 7 with a twist overlooking the dark lake, the cigar was a wonderful companion as the stars twinkled and the lights from across the way shone on the small waves. I got average smoke production and a predictably nice taste centered in the middle of the spectrum all the way to the band. Overall this is a nice example of a working manís Havana with a slightly rough flavor and a no nonsense delivery. This was a very pleasant way to spend a half hour. I was not disappointed. Recommended.
