Review Notes: The usual characteristic of this cigar family is like the repressed Librarian at my elementary school... often wrapped a little too tightly. But this cousin, the Criollo, is making a nice name for itself as "the easy going one"... the fun cousin. Now, the qualities: The body is quite firm (avoiding the obvious joke) and the wrapper has a slight sweetness to it. What makes this cousin the "Easy going one" is the easy draw... unlike its relatives. The dark wrapper and delicious filler give it a very easy taste, and a strangely cool temperatured burn. The burn is exactingly even, and never went out, maintaining the easiness of the draw as well as the certainty of its not-too-serious nimble flavor. It was delicious and increasingly complex as it went. The Criollo comes in a small box with several drawers, that can be recycled as a dresser for a Leprechaun or well-trained helper-monkey. By well trained, I mean that it should at least be able to fold its own clothing.
