Review Notes: A very nice smoke. Silky smooth milk chocolate wrapper with hardly a visible vein. Solid construction without soft spots (VERY solid stick!). Nice prelight aroma. Easy light. Slightly firm draw. Even, but slow, burn with only the need for one correction. Gray-black ash. Started immediately with a highly tannic flavor with the taste of raw tobacco and mild black pepper. This mellowed out a bit by the end of the first third, while notes of leather and grapeskins off of young red grapes revealed themselves. In the last third, the tobacco flavor became slightly toasted and there were herbal whispers which were transiently noticed. This was from 7/01, so it was over 4 years old when it was smoked. Despite the age, it could still use more. Clearly this is a full-bodied smoke, though not a headspinner. With time, it will surely be even more enjoyable.
