Review Notes: This is a wonderful cigar! Smooth milky chocolate wrapper with nary a vein. Good construction, though felt a little tight between the thumb and finger, with no soft spots. Mild prelight aroma. Prelight draw reminisced of raisins and plums. Easy light. Moderately tight draw (despite 70/65). Even burn without the need for correction or relights. Dense chalk white ash. Started with wood (cedar and mild oak). This was joined by mild sweet leather in the first third. The sweet woody flavor was the predominant flavor profile through the whole stick (which I enjoy). A mild tobacco taste was also present in the middle third. In the last third, a very mild floral note seemed to jump in and out. All in all, this one hour smoke was fairly one-dimensional in that the flavor profile didn't change much, but still complex in the fact that a medley of woody/leather/tobacco flavors was present that was most enjoyable. The only downside was that the draw was a little too tight depsite ideal sotage conditions, indicating a tight roll to me (mine was a '98). Paired well with a freah cup of Killer Beans.
