Review Notes: I had heard a lot about these, so when the opportunity arose to pick up some aged ones, I jumped. These were from 11/98 (NNSU VC4 ). Fairly plain brown wrapper with minimal veins. Good construction, though I detected one soft spot near the midmark. Faint prelight aroma. Easy light. Tight draw that did not loosen up much. Even burn without the need for relights or corrections. Gray ash. Started immediately with pepper and earth. This was joined by a raw tobacco taste in the first third. The second third introduced notes of leather, cocoa, and faint ripe blackberries. The last third brought whispers of burnt espresso on an earthy background. All in all, this one hour 15 minute medium-to-full bodied smoke was fairly enjoyable from the flavor department, though the tight draw detracted from the experience. Paired well with Haitian rum.
