Review Notes: These cigars look great. They come in a nice cedar casing and underneath is a deep brown maduro wrapper with few veins and a slight sheen. These really do look like someone has created something rather than just rolled a cigar. Having lit it, it was very mild to start with, with some nice light cocoa flavours. A very easy draw without being 'loose' is also a nice benefit. Strength picks up after first inch or so, but is still smooth. I found plain black coffee went well with this. I tasted a variety of earthy flavours, which in themselves were nice but I was a little disappointed not to have some 'sweetness' thrown in. Don't get me wrong: this cigar is not at all bitter, but with the rich maduro wrapper I had expected a little chocolatey flavour throughout, and the closest was cocoa in the first inch. Mine also went out a couple of times, which could have been due to inattention, but I don't think I put it down either time for more than two or three mins. To some extent the cigar fails to live up to the fantastic appearance, but this is more a reflection on the appearance than massive faulting finding with the cigar. Don't expect to smoke these quickly either: allow two hours. With a little extra flavour range and had it not gone out a few times, then this really would have been very special. As it is, it's still a might fine cigar, and will not disappoint.
