Review Notes: Further to my first comment below, I have smoked several other ELHGHD(M). I have to admit that every time they get better. I have put all of them in the same humidor, all alone, and the last I smoked a week ago, while watching at the TV the match between PSV Eindhoven and AC Milan, was excellent. All what I wrote below is still perfectly valid, with the added bonus that all the flavours blend now together very smoothly and have got depth, making it a great smoke, if distinctly non cuban. The cigar lasted all the time of the match, including the break, plus another 20 minutes, which makes for more than two hours. Surely not an after lunch thing....Value is colossal, such it was when I bought it and it's even more so now....

Review Notes: I bought a box of these directly at El Credito factory on Calle Ocho in Miami. Never heard about this brand before, but the nice salesgirl said that if I wanted something strong, that was the thing. And strong it is, for sure, although it starts sweet and makes you think it's almost mild....but then the strength comes into play, as well as earth and dark cocoa flavours, with hints of chili peppers. It burnt evenly, and it took the most of two hours to do it. However, flavours were, how to say, slightly unidimenssional, just like a good wine opened too soon. Great promises, not to be wasted with a too young smoke. The others will rest in the humidor for at least 3 months, and then we'll see....
