Review Notes: A very different cigar. "Mottled" beep brown wrapper with a speckled appearance. Solid construction with no soft spots. Spicy prelight aroma. Tasty prelight draw. Easy light. Smooth draw. Burned well, though a bit unevenly in the first half (no correction needed, however). White ash. Tons of white smoke. Started with pepper (black and white) and wood - particularly oak. This folded into a very "woodsy" flavor in the first third with a distinctive spicy flavor I have not tasted before. In the middle third, a tangy citrusy flavor developed that combined with the above notes. Floral notes were also prominent. In the last third, subtle cocoa nuances were noticed that layered into the complexity. All in all, this one hour smoke (from '96 - original release) was spicy, unique, distinctive, and complex. Bought a box.
