Review Notes: The wrapper was very dark at the foot, getting lighter at the head. It shined with an oily glow and the flawless wrapper felt lovely. An impressively firm roll expertly executed, it sported a very professionally applied cap that was large and well formed. The band is the classic Punch red with an added black ring at the bottom. Clipped cleanly and evenly leaving a level head. Great pre light draw showed real promise with an obvious dark and strong bite to the tongue. Wow! This cigar is a real eye opener. Strong and powerful right out of the blocks, thereís obviously a lot of ligero in this blend. Medium bodied, but the flavor is aggressive with and inky woody flavor that takes some getting used to. Slightly off putting at first in its massive musculature, once acclimated it delivers good, solid satisfaction. So strong I lost myself in the experience for a bit and almost burned my fingers. Even the aroma is strong with a tall expansive scent. Great with a latte and good conversation, the draw started tight and loosed up as it went. Towards the end there were expansive notes of toasted coffee and leather. A very nice evening smoke, not for smoking on an empty stomach. Overall a huge, monster smoke that kicks in the door and takes no prisoners. Wide as the Grand Canyon. I bet this cigar will age very gracefully, revealing more of its depth as the years go on. Recommended.
