Review Notes: Dark mahogany wrapper glowed with an oily shine that complemented the festive multicolored band. One prominent vein marred an otherwise flawless presentation and reached the length of the cigar causing a slight bulge in the massive and well constructed cap. Nice pre light bite on the tongue and a telltale tingle on the lips. Once coaxed to life this cigar delivered decent amounts of smoke and a relatively even burn. There was a stout body and a wall of intoxicating flavor including notes of evergreen, sage, moss, and a nice complexity. Big finish had a slightly dry edge which tapered to a lingering tingle in the mouth. The solid roll yielded a resolute light colored ash that towered to half the length of the stick before being knocked loose, and the cigar never softened as it burned. Great mouth feel. A nice solid companion to a bottle of Peter Lehman Clancys Australian red, the cigar had a nice slow burn that lasted a long while. Impressive range of flavors kept the pressure on for the length of the smoke with plenty of power in the blend. The Ecuadorian wrapper lent an interesting twist to the Fuente smoothness and a nice exotic aroma to the ambient smoke. Overall this was an intriguing cigar that offered a nice one-two punch of full body and complex flavor. There was a lot to this stick. Worth $9.50 each? Maybe, its hard to quantify the enjoyment. But this is still one cigar that everyone should try once if just for the experience of the artistic presentation. Recommended.
