Review Notes: This slightly box pressed robusto with box code POS Mar 06 came wrapped in a reddish Colorado wrapper with minimal veins. It was fairly light in the hand, and fine tooth could be discerned. Good construction without soft spots. Easy light. Smooth draw. Even burn without the need for relights or corrections. Gray-black ash. It started with wood and spice, and then opened into a slightly sweet cedar wood taste in the first third. It was tannic, to be sure, with notes of white pepper, earth, nuts, and toast. The middle third brought hints of lemon zest along a core of wood. The tannins mellowed, though I was still reminded of a flavor that tasted like milked acidic coffee with a “bite”. The last third saw a continuation of the woody flavor along with toasted tobacco and a hint of earth. The familiar Cuban “twang” was very apparent. All in all, this medium bodied one hour smoke was delightful and flavorful.

Review Notes: A wonderful cigar! Beautiful robusto vitola. Tawny brown wrapper with minimal veins. Excellent solid construction with no soft spots. Exceptionally decadent prelight aroma. Prelight draw tasted of nuts and raisins. Easy light. Good draw. Even burn without the need for correction or relights. White ash. Rich white smoke. Started with nuts, mild earth and leather in the first third, and then eased its way into a toasted tobacco flavor with nuts, oak, and leather in the middle third. Floral and light herbaceous notes developed in the last third, which I nubbed. Rich, smooth, complex, and hearty, this one hour smoke is a classic for sure.
